CODA (Featuring Ryan Pak)

On the 232nd episode of Piecing It Together, Ryan Pak from Soundtrack Your Life joins me to discuss this year’s Oscar winner for Best Picture, CODA.

It’s a crowd pleaser, even if I didn’t exactly like it the first time around (I liked it more on rewatch). Puzzle pieces include Little Miss Sunshine, Lady Bird, School of Rock and Minari.

While it fits pretty squarely in the “dying teen” sub-genre of coming-of-age movies, this is a special movie and definitely has something more to say about life.

On the 133rd episode of Piecing It Together, JC from Screen Fix Podcast joins me to talk about the latest Judd Apatow film, The King Of Staten Island, starring (and partially based on the life of) Pete Davidson, out now on VOD.

Puzzle pieces include A Star Is Born, Billy Elliot, 8 Mile and Little Miss Sunshine.
