On the 47th episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host Ryan Daugherty and I discuss the newest entry in the wildly popular animated series How To Train Your Dragon. Concluding the trilogy, How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World is a movie I went into without really knowing the world, but I had a great time anyway (and Ryan helps me along the way). Puzzle pieces include Avatar, Pokemon, Dragonheart and the Before Trilogy..
James Bond 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 15th episode of Piecing It Together, co-host Ryan Daugherty and I discuss quite possibly the ultimate entry in the man-child sub-genre of comedy films, Tag. From director Jeff Tomsic comes this true-life (seriously) tale of friends who refuse to grow up, as they hold on to their youth by continuing a childhood game of Tag well into their 40s. It stars a huge cast of comedy all-stars including Ed Helms, Hannibal Burress, Jake Johnson, Jon Hamm, Isla Fisher, Jeremy Renner and Leslie Bibb. Puzzle pieces include Judd Apatow films, Grown Ups, Community, The League and movies in which the villain is always two steps ahead of the heroes.
On the 3rd episode of Piecing It Together, co-host David Quinones and I discuss the biggest movie of the year, the unstoppable hit film Black Panther. Marvel took a chance creating the first true blockbuster with a majority black cast, and it paid off big. Puzzle Pieces for the film include James Bond, The Lion King, The Dark Knight and Kill Bill Vol 1.
