On the 5th installment of our Missing Pieces series, Rico Albarracin joins me to talk about Edgar Wright’s 2010 comic book adaptation Scott Pilgrim Vs The World. A celebration of nerd culture, it’s become a cult hit over time, even if audiences didn’t immediately respond to the film or its soon to be hugely famous cast at the time. Puzzle pieces include Speed Racer, 500 Days Of Summer, Sin city and The Wizard.
On the 123rd episode of Piecing It Together, Sean Malloy, a guy who knows a thing or two about action movies stops by to talk about Vin Diesel’s latest attempt at an action franchise, Bloodshot. Based on the Valiant Comic, the film opened the weekend the Coronavirus closed all theaters, which combined with abysmal reviews dashed any hopes of a new cinematic universe. But we covered it anyway. Puzzle pieces include Deadpool, Universal Soldier, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
On the 113th episode of Piecing It Together, Joe Black and Adam Wells return to the podcast for a conversation about all things Kevin Smith, touching on lots of moments from throughout his View Askewniverse right up until the brand new Jay & Silent Bob Reboot. We recorded this back when the film was toured around the country and it’s now finally out on VOD. Puzzle pieces include O Brother Where Art Thou?, Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure, Dumb & Dumber 2 and of course… Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back.
On the 6th episode of the special episode series called Breaking It Apart, our resident DC and Superman expert Chad Clinton Freeman joins me to discuss Superman: The Movie. Long before Chad became obsessed with Batman V Superman, the original Superman movie was part of a wave of films that basically invented what modern blockbusters would become. Puzzle pieces include Captain Marvel, Prometheus, Ghostbusters and Disaster Movies.
On the 40th episode (FORTY EPISODES!) of Piecing It Together, returning co-host Ryan Daugherty and I discuss the amazing success that is Marvel’s newest Spider-Man movie, Into The Spiderverse. A one-off animated film that doesn’t tie into the other movies in the franchise (but does reference them in hilarious and wonderful ways), this movie is fan-service done right. Puzzle pieces include Deadpool, Kick-Ass, Scott Pilgrim Vs The World and What The Bleep Do We Know.
