On the 3rd episode of Missing Pieces, Luella Chavez joins me to talk about 2014’s Love & Mercy. The story of Brian Wilson, the legendary lead songwriter of the Beach Boys who is perhaps as famous for his beautiful music as he is for the stories of his mental illness and his multiple years spent in reclusion. Puzzle pieces include The Aviator, Ray and I’m Not There.
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 36th episode of Piecing It Together, new co-host Luella Chavez of the Vegas Playground podcast joins us to discuss Bohemian Rhapsody, the controversial biopic of Queen front-man Freddy Mercury. Despite huge box-office success, the movie has been maligned by bad reviews since its release with critics generally praising Rami Malek’s performance as the late singer, but trashing the rest of the film… Luella and I liked it like general audiences did… Even if we recognize the film’s many flaws. Puzzle pieces include Rock Star, Love & Mercy, The Wolf of Wall Street and Wayne’s World.
