On this special episode of Piecing It Together, film-critic Josh Bell joins me to discuss our favorite movies of 2020… so far. It’s been a very strange year for movies what with everything going on in the world, but as our conversation should prove, there’s definitely no shortage of great ones.
On the 129th episode of Piecing It Together, Josh Bell joins us again (twice in one week, third this month!) to talk about a film from Las Vegas based filmmaker Brandon Christensen. Z starts off squarely in the creepy kid with an imaginary friend horror sub-genre and then takes some unexpected turns. Puzzle pieces include The Babadook, New Nightmare, The Omen and Drop Dead Fred.
On the 128th episode of Piecing It Together, Josh Bell stops by to talk about one of the most unique and stylish horror movies of the year, Gretel & Hansel. This re-imagining of the classic children’s tale is one of the best movies I saw in the theater this year (before they all closed due to the Coronavirus) and is finally out now for rent. Puzzle pieces include The Witch, The Shining, The Cell and Mandy.
On the 125th episode of Piecing It Together, Josh Bell stops by to talk about a stylish, unique debut from filmmaker Tayarisha Poe, the Amazon Original Selah and the Spades. It’s a film that flips the high school movie sub-genre by blending it with an almost organized crime style story. Puzzle pieces include Brick, Donnie Brasko, Rushmore and Mean Girls.
On this special episode of Piecing It Together, Josh Bell from Awesome Movie Year joins me to countdown our Top 10 Favorite Films of the Decade. Yes, the decade… It’s quite the undertaking to try to even remember the hundreds of movies I’ve seen in the last ten years, let alone try to come up with a meaningful ranking of them… But we did it.
On this special episode of Piecing It Together, Josh & Jason from Awesome Movie Year stop by to countdown the Top 10 movies of 2019. Continuing a tradition we began all the way back in 2018, we countdown our favorites as well as some favorite movie moments of the year.
On the 97th episode of Piecing It Together, Josh Bell joins me to discuss the return of Eddie Murphy in the Netflix Original, Dolemite Is My Name. A crowd-pleasing biopic of Rudy Ray Moore, it’s a fun movie about making movies. Puzzle pieces include the Disaster Artist, Ed Wood, Hustle & Flow, and Black Dynamite.
On the 88th episode of Piecing It Together, it’s our first LIVE episode! We recorded in the theater right after the Sin City Horror Fest screening of The Head, an homage to shot-on-VHS horror of the 80s. Joining me is many-time co-host Josh Bell, first time co-host (and Sin City Horror Fest co-founder) Drew Marvick, and The Head’s writer/director Michael Keene. Puzzle pieces include Dead Alive, Re-Animator, Psycho and Desperate Living.
On this special episode of Piecing It Together, Josh Bell & Jason Harris from Awesome Movie Year Podcast join me to play a few rounds of a new party game for movie fans, Cinephile! We probably should have spent a little more time reading the rules before we started, but we had a fun time anyway, and you can win a copy of the game in our Facebook group Popcorn & Puzzle Pieces.
On the 82nd episode of Piecing It Together, film-critic Josh Bell joins me for a movie that I never thought we’d be covering on this show… The ridiculous direct-to-video schlocky horror-comedy The VelociPastor. It’s about a pastor… Who turns into a raptor. Strap in folks, because we are DOING THIS… Puzzle pieces include Orgazmo, Kung Pow and Grindhouse cinema.
