On this special episode of Piecing It Together, one of my oldest friends and fellow composer TJ Kross joins me to talk about our picks for the best Film Scores of the decade. This is a very special episode for me because I spent most of this decade chasing the dream of being a film music composer, so it’s obviously a subject near and dear to my heart.
10 Cloverfield Lane
On the 69th episode of Piecing It Together, new co-host Phil A from the Las Vegas-based hip-hop group Slump Lords joins me to discuss Jim Jarmusch’s zombie comedy The Dead Don’t Die, starring Bill Murray and Adam Driver. Those not familiar with Jarmusch’s deadpan style may be shocked at the zombie-like pacing, but if you like dry humor, this is definitely one to watch. Puzzle pieces included Shaun Of The Dead, 10 Cloverfield Lane, Evil Dead 2 and the films of George A. Romero.
On the 49th episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host David Quinones and I discuss The Standoff at Sparrow Creek. We don’t normally do a lot of VOD-only movies on the podcast, but I was in Miami visiting Q for a live episode of our other podcast Bird Road and we watched this movie and figured we’d do a quick episode on his new RodeCaster Pro. Puzzle pieces include Reservoir Dogs, Killing Zoe, 10 Cloverfield Lane and Free Fire.
On the 10th (wow, ten episodes!) episode of Piecing It Together, co-host Chad Clinton Freeman and I discuss A Quiet Place. This creature feature from John Krasinski in which a family must hide from blind but ultra-hearing predators was one of the big surprise hits of 2018. It stars Krasinski and Emily Blunt as well as some really cool monsters. Puzzle pieces include 10 Cloverfield Lane, Signs and The Road.
