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 68th episode of Piecing It Together, Josh Bell joins me for the 2nd time in a row, this time for our long awaited episode on Jordan Peele’s Us. After Get Out, the world had been waiting to see what Peele would do next, and with his somewhat convoluted but still crown-pleasing sophomore effort, he didn’t disappoint. Puzzle pieces include The Strangers, Funny Games, Halloween and C.H.U.D.
On the 65th episode of Piecing It Together, Chad Clinton Freeman and Ryan Daugherty join me for a nerdy extravaganza in our conversation about Godzilla: King of the Monsters. The third chapter in Legendary Pictures’ MonsterVerse features tons of monster-on-monster action, and a lot of rain. Puzzle pieces include Batman V Superman, The Happening, Kaiju Big Battel and the Independence Day series.
On the 48th episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host Josh Bell and I discuss Happy Death Day 2 U, the perfectly titled sequel to the surprise Blumhouse hit, Happy Death Day. After Tree spent the first one reliving the same day over and over in a time-loop slasher comedy, this time around she finds herself in an alternate reality, complete with new genres. Puzzle pieces include Aliens, Groundhog Day, Back To The Future 2 and Primer.
On the 45th episode of Piecing It Together, I’m joined by Chad Clinton Freeman for a special kind of episode we’ve never really done before… It’s both a Piecing It Together of 2018’s Halloween, and a Breaking It Apart of 1978’s original Halloween. While coming up with our puzzle pieces for the new one, we realized that all the movies that inspired it, were themselves inspired by the original, so we thought this would make for a fun episode. Puzzle pieces include Scream, Happy Death Day and Mean Girls.
