On the 107th episode of Piecing It Together, it’s time for another super-episode! I’m joined by JC, TJ, David Michor, Adam Wells, The Lady-Wan and Joe Black to talk about the epic conclusion to the 9 film Star Wars story in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Of course it won’t really be the end, but it’s still Star Wars so the only proper way to cover it is with multiple guests.

On the 56th episode of Piecing It Together, our resident DC fan Chad Clinton Freeman is back again to follow-up our Superman: The Movie discussion with an episode on DC’s newest superhero adventure, Shazam! Based on the classic story of a kid who is granted the power to turn into a superhero, it’s a complete turn to full on fun for the the DCEU. Puzzle pieces include Kick-Ass, Big, Ghostbusters and The Naked Gun.
On the 50th episode of Piecing It Together, Josh Bell joins me again for Overlord, one of this month’s long-lost episodes. OK it’s not that late as it only hit VOD a couple weeks ago, but the JJ Abrams produced Nazi-zombie action film which was once rumored to possibly be a Cloverfield movie is one we recorded this episode for back in November and I’m excited to finally release it. Puzzle pieces include Inglorious Basterds, Army of Darkness, Captain America: The First Avenger and Wolfenstein 3D.
On the 41st episode of Piecing It Together co-host Chad Clinton Freeman and I discuss the newest entry in the DC Extended Universe, Aquaman. While DC has had a bit of trouble finding its footing in trying to battle Marvel for comic-book movie geek dominance, its films are not without their fans (Chad for example). Well they’ve got a new one thanks to Aquaman. And his name is Me! Puzzle pieces include Black Panther, Batman & Robin, Romancing The Stone and Avatar.
On the 27th episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host Chad Clinton Freeman and I discuss The Nun, the newest entry in the ever expanding Conjuring Universe. The horrifying character who made her debut in The Conjuring 2 and Annabelle 2 finally gets her own movie, diving deep back into how this evil Nun character got her start and set off the events that would build the Conjuring universe and a world of unspeakable evil… It’s also absolutely ridiculous, hokey and hilarious and a great fun time at the movies! Puzzle pieces include Indiana Jones, Evil Dead, the Universal Classic Monsters and Scooby Doo.
On the 21st episode of Piecing It Together, first time co-host Brian Garth and I talk about the 6th entry in the long running and apparently never slowing down action spy series Mission Impossible Fallout. Tom Cruise, now 56, still feels the need to do all kinds of insane, death defying stunts while saving the world, and for the first time in the series, a writer/director returns for a second installment. Christopher McQuarrie who wrote and directed the previous installment is back to finish the story he started in Rogue Nation… As well as get Tom Cruise to do a bunch of crazy stuff. Puzzle pieces include the previous Mission Impossible films, Uncharted, The Dark Knight and The Fast & The Furious series.
On the 20th episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host TJ Kross and I discuss the Uncharted Live Action Fan Film. Uncharted is based on the hit video-game series, one that always made sense for a film but every time Hollywood started trying to get one off the ground it would lose momentum, directors or actors and go back to the drawing board. All the while, fans asked for the actor Nathan Fillion to play the role of Nathan Drake, and somehow, director Allan Ungar finally made it happen. At 15 minutes, this fan film is unlike anything we’ve ever covered on the show before, but it still made for a great conversation with plenty of other movie (and video-game) inspirations to talk about. Puzzle pieces include Tomb Raider, Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Da Vinci Code and Mission Impossible.
On the 4th episode of Piecing It Together, co-host TJ Kross and I discuss the new reboot of Tomb Raider, based on the hit video-game series. Alicia Vikander stars as the new Lara Croft in an adventure filled with puzzles, action and almost exact recreations of the most recent Tomb Raider games. Puzzle Pieces include Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, The Revenant, Sahara and the Uncharted video-game series.
