On the 86th episode of Piecing It Together, JC from Screen Fix Podcast joins me to discuss the horror-comedy Ready Or Not. Initially a movie I planned on skipping due to the fact that I didn’t really love it, it seems like everyone keeps talking about this silly little movie, so we figured we might as well do it. Puzzle pieces include Game Night, Get Out, You’re Next and Surviving The Game.
On the 26th episode of Piecing It Together, co-host Josh Bell and I discuss The Beast, a local feature from Las Vegas-based filmmakers Ryan & Cody LeBoeuf. The Beast originally screened at film festivals under the name Rabbit Days before picking up distribution and getting the name change. It’s a crazy, mind-trip of a movie about a play director who lures some guests to his home with the promise of great opportunity, but what they find when they arrive goes from weird to bad to much worse. Puzzle pieces include The House on Haunted Hill, The Invitation, Mullholand Drive and Waiting For Guffman.
On the 19th episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host Kris Krainock and I discuss Skyscraper, the new action movie from The Rock that definitely doesn’t have Die Hard as a puzzle piece. Just kidding, of course it does, it’s the first one we discuss, but the movie absolutely wears its inspirations on its sleeve with The Rock needing to find a way to scale and enter a burning super-tower to rescue his family from terrorists. It’s ridiculous, it’s fun (but maybe not as fun as we’d have liked), and it made for a great conversation about action movies in general. Puzzle pieces (other than Die Hard) include The Dark Knight, King Kong, The Rock and True Lies.
On the 5th episode of Piecing It Together, co-host Chad Clinton Freeman and I discuss an insane new movie called The Hurricane Heist from Rob Cohen, the creator of the Fast & Furious series. In The Hurricane Heist, a team of bank robbers attempt to rob a treasury facility during… you guessed it… a hurricane. It’s wild, ridiculous and a ton of fun. Puzzle Piecies include Twister (duh), Die Hard, The Rock and Hard Rain.
