On the 127th episode of Piecing It Together, Joe Black joins me to talk about one of the last movies I watched in the theater before Coronavirus closed everything, Greed. A hilarious satire that takes down the 1%, it’s a timely movie that just came out on VOD last week. Puzzle pieces include the films of Christopher Guest, The Big Short, Vice Principals, and Bruno.
On the 119th episode of Piecing It Together, Robert Yaniz Jr. from the Crooked Table Podcast helps me kick off year 3 of our podcast by looking at The Invisible Man. This modernized take on the classic Universal Monster movie from Blumhouse and director Leigh Whannel is totally surprising and does the long tradition of monsters proud. Puzzle pieces include Terminator 2, Ex Machina, Sleeping With The Enemy and Gone Girl.
On the 116th episode of Piecing It Together, Chad Clinton Freeman joins us (two in a row!) to talk about the latest in his beloved DC Extended Universe of films, the Harley Quinn solo movie Birds Of Prey. Following up on the disaster that was Suicide Squad, Birds Of Prey sees a newly single Harley Quinn getting into all kinds of crazy adventures in an uneven but fun comic book movie. Puzzle pieces include Tank Girl, Deadpool 2, Joker and Kill Bill.
On the 93rd episode of Piecing It Together, I’m joined again by Chad Clinton Freeman and Ryan Daugherty to complete our trilogy of nerdy episodes by talking about Todd Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker. Following up our conversations on Glass and Godzilla King Of The Monsters, we take on quite possibly the most divisive movie of the year. Puzzle pieces include Taxi Driver, The King Of Comedy, Fight Club and Falling Down.
