On the 6th installment of our Missing Pieces series, Joe Black joins us for the absolute mind-trip that is Richard Kelly’s Southland Tales. Is it a biblical story? Does anything make sense? Do pimps commit suicide? All of this and more are discussed on this extensive breakdown of this sort-of cult classic. Puzzle pieces include Star Wars, They Live, Demolition Man and Idiocracy.
On this Special Episode of Piecing It Together, I’m actually just reposting an episode of the Faces & Aces Podcast I was recently a guest on. I was contacted by the show’s host to join him for a special episode in which we took the Piecing It Together formula and applied it to the city I live in, Las Vegas, NV. Using the format, we came up with a list of movies that represent Las Vegas. It’s a fun talk and I thought you’d all want to hear it. Puzzle pieces include The Hangover, Swingers, Spy and Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas.
On the 73rd episode of Piecing It Together, Millennial Mike from the Exiles Network joins me for an episode long in the making. Alita: Battle Angel, James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez’s manga-based epic sci-fi adventure has divided audiences ever since it came out earlier this year, but now that it’s on VOD, the two of us have a great discussion about this inventive, crazy movie that we both loved. Puzzle pieces include The Matrix, Avatar, Wonder Woman and Ex Machina.
