On the 7th episode of the special episode series called Breaking It Apart, Caitlin Kennedy joins me for the 45th anniversary of the original summer blockbuster – Jaws. Steven Spielberg’s shark classic redefined the movies and still feels fresh today. Puzzle pieces include Jurassic Park, Independence Day, Alien and of course, Sharknado .
On the 75th episode of Piecing It Together, Luella Chavez joins me to talk about the Sam Raimi-produced killer alligator flick Crawl. Directed by Alexandre Aja, Crawl has plenty of B-Movie thrills, but surprises with its realistic tension and suspense. Puzzle pieces include The Evil Dead, Don’t Breathe, The Impossible and The Cove.
On the 28th episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host Ryan Daugherty and I discuss Shane Black’s continuation of the classic alien hunter sci-fi horror action series Predator with… The Predator! It’s a straight up sequel and not a reboot or something so I wonder why the didn’t just call it Predator 3… I just thought of that… Anyway it’s a mess of a movie but a fun mess and we had a blast talking about it. Puzzle pieces include Aliens Vs Predator 2 (because if you’re going to emulate a movie from the franchise why not aim low?), Alien Covenant, Independence Day and Con Air.
On the 26th episode of Piecing It Together, co-host Josh Bell and I discuss The Beast, a local feature from Las Vegas-based filmmakers Ryan & Cody LeBoeuf. The Beast originally screened at film festivals under the name Rabbit Days before picking up distribution and getting the name change. It’s a crazy, mind-trip of a movie about a play director who lures some guests to his home with the promise of great opportunity, but what they find when they arrive goes from weird to bad to much worse. Puzzle pieces include The House on Haunted Hill, The Invitation, Mullholand Drive and Waiting For Guffman.
