Thief (Featuring David Quinones)

On the 12th installment of the special episode series called Breaking It Apart, I’m joined by David Quinones to talk about Michael Mann’s classic debut, 1981’s Thief. The film just celebrated its 40th anniversary, and it’s so easy to see its influence (as well as Michael Mann’s in general) on so many crime films that have come since. Puzzle pieces include Drive, Good Time, The Score and Gigli.

One Night In Miami (Featuring David Quinones)

On the 164th episode of Piecing It Together, I’m joined again by David Quinones from Bird Road Podcast to talk about Regina King’s directorial debut, One Night In Miami. Set in a hotel room where a fictionalized meeting between real life friends Cassius Clay, Malcolm X, Jim Brown and Sam Cooke takes place, One Night In Miami features four powerhouse performances in a very play-like film. Puzzle pieces include Frost/Nixon, Malcolm X, Ali and Loving.

Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets (Featuring David Quinones)

On this special cross-over episode, I’m joined by David Quinones for a conversation we had on our Bird Road Podcast about the fascinating 2020 film, Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets. Filmed to look like the closing day in the life of a Las Vegas bar and its regulars (but actually a scripted narrative film), Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets provided us the perfect opportunity to reminisce on our 20s when we spent nearly every night in bars like this. We also get into a bunch of puzzle pieces including Cinema Verite, Another Round, Last Night at the Alamo and Anomalisa.

The Platform (Featuring David Quinones)

On the 122nd episode of Piecing It Together, David Quinones joins me to talk about yet another movie that critiques Capitalism (I’m sensing a theme here), Netflix’s The Platform. It’s a crazy movie about a 300 story prison in which prisoners must survive by scavenging from a levitating food platform that travels down from the top to the bottom. Puzzle pieces include Snowpiercer, mother!, The Machinist and Cube.

Parasite (Featuring David Quinones)

On the 114th episode of Piecing It Together, my buddy David Quinones from Bird Road Podcast joins me to talk about possibly the most talked about movie of 2019, Parasite. Bong Joon-ho’s timely social satire about two families on different sides of the wealth gap surprised everyone and has been cleaning up awards over the last couple months. Puzzle pieces include Us, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Eating Raoul and mother!

Top 10 TV Shows Of The Decade (Special Episode)

On this special episode of Piecing It Together, it’s a cross-over episode with my other podcast Bird Road! Q and I love talking about TV, even though I rarely make time to watch any of it… So he was the perfect person to talk about the best shows of the last decade. Along with our Top 10s we also get into some specific extra categories and it’s a great, long conversation.

On the 95th episode of Piecing It Together, my buddy David Quinones from Bird Road Podcast joins me to talk about El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie.

Avengers Endgame (Super Episode)

On the 59th episode of Piecing It Together, it’s time for a SUPER-EPISODE! As we did with its predecessor, Avengers Infinity War, Avengers Endgame is a movie too big for just one co-host. So instead I got help covering the Marvel movie to end all Marvel movies (at least until July’s new Spider-Man) from David Quinones, Chad Clinton Freeman, Jacob Tiranno, Bee Garner, Rico Albarracin and The Lady-Wan. Puzzle pieces include Oceans 12, The Wrestler, The Last Jedi and Back To The Future.

Guava Island (Featuring David Quinones)

On the 57th episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host David Quinones and I discuss Childish Gambino’s 50 minute semi-feature Guava Island, which debuted on Amazon Prime during his Coachella set. Part film, part music video collection, it’s a unique vision, as we should all expect from the team behind Atlanta and Childish Gambino’s “This Is America” music video. Puzzle pieces include Lemonade, Spirited Away, Inside Llewyn Davis and Sorry To Bother You.

The Standoff at Sparrow Creek (Featuring David Quinones)

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.

Mandy (Featuring David Quinones)

On the 29th episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host David Quinones and I discuss Mandy… A movie that promises the craziest Nicolas Cage performance you’ve ever seen, and actually pretty much delivers (well to be fair he’s got a TON of crazy performances to choose from so lets just say it lives up to his legacy). At its core it’s a revenge film about a man who goes after a religious cult after they murder his wife, but it’s much more than that and one of the most unique films to come along in a while. Puzzle pieces include Army of Darkness, The Wall, Tommy and Heavy Metal album covers.
