On the 9th episode of the special episode series called Breaking It Apart, I’m joined by Weng’s Chop’s Tony Strauss and Troy Howarth, the author of Assault On The System: The Nonconformist Cinema of John Carpenter to talk about the 1982 classic The Thing. This influential horror classic wasn’t a hit when it was released, but has gone on to be considered one of the ultimate films when it comes to paranoia, suspense and horrific practical effects.

On the 49th episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host David Quinones and I discuss The Standoff at Sparrow Creek.

Bad Times at the El Royale (Featuring Ryan Daugherty)

On the 33rd episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host Ryan Daugherty and I discuss Drew Goddard’s Bad Times at the El Royale. Ryan and I are obsessed with Goddard’s Cloverfield series so we jumped at the chance to cover this mystery about a group of strangers who converge on an old motel located on the California-Nevada border… And while we weren’t The Cloverfield Paradox level disappointed, we didn’t exactly love our stay at the El Royale. Puzzle pieces include every Quentin Tarantino movie, Lost, Smokin’ Aces, and No Country for Old Men.

American Animals (Featuring Josh Bell)

On the 16th episode of Piecing It Together, co-host Josh Bell and I discuss American Animals. It’s a true story that’s so crazy they had to make a point to tell us in the beginning that it’s not “based on a true story,” but it “is a true story.” From director Bart Layton, the story focuses on a group of four guys, led by Warren (Evan Peters) and Spencer (Barry Keoghan), who bored with their mundane existences decide to try to rob priceless books from a museum to sell on the black market. Yes it really happened, and yes it goes horribly wrong. The movie blends the lines between cinema and reality by also including documentary style interviews with the real guys, as well as including them in scenes with their actor counterparts. Puzzle pieces include The Bling Ring, Reservoir Dogs, The Thin Blue Line and I, Tonya.
