On the 81st episode of Piecing It Together, we jump head first into the Fast & Furious Universe with Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (a movie we already started to discuss on the special episode with my parents). The Lady-Wan from Screen Fix podcast joins me to discuss this absolutely ridiculous, unnecessary and pretty fun spin-off. Puzzle pieces include the Mission: Impossible, James Bond and Star Wars series, as well as every The Rock movie.
The Fast & The Furious Series
On this special episode of Piecing It Together, David Rosen and his parents Rich & Sunny recorded their initial reactions in the car ride home from watching Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw. Rich loves a good action movie… And Sunny loves a bad action movie, so Hobbs & Shaw seemed like the perfect movie to have them on again for.
On the 41st episode of Piecing It Together co-host Chad Clinton Freeman and I discuss the newest entry in the DC Extended Universe, Aquaman. While DC has had a bit of trouble finding its footing in trying to battle Marvel for comic-book movie geek dominance, its films are not without their fans (Chad for example). Well they’ve got a new one thanks to Aquaman. And his name is Me! Puzzle pieces include Black Panther, Batman & Robin, Romancing The Stone and Avatar.
On the 21st episode of Piecing It Together, first time co-host Brian Garth and I talk about the 6th entry in the long running and apparently never slowing down action spy series Mission Impossible Fallout. Tom Cruise, now 56, still feels the need to do all kinds of insane, death defying stunts while saving the world, and for the first time in the series, a writer/director returns for a second installment. Christopher McQuarrie who wrote and directed the previous installment is back to finish the story he started in Rogue Nation… As well as get Tom Cruise to do a bunch of crazy stuff. Puzzle pieces include the previous Mission Impossible films, Uncharted, The Dark Knight and The Fast & The Furious series.
On the 15th episode of Piecing It Together, co-host Ryan Daugherty and I discuss quite possibly the ultimate entry in the man-child sub-genre of comedy films, Tag. From director Jeff Tomsic comes this true-life (seriously) tale of friends who refuse to grow up, as they hold on to their youth by continuing a childhood game of Tag well into their 40s. It stars a huge cast of comedy all-stars including Ed Helms, Hannibal Burress, Jake Johnson, Jon Hamm, Isla Fisher, Jeremy Renner and Leslie Bibb. Puzzle pieces include Judd Apatow films, Grown Ups, Community, The League and movies in which the villain is always two steps ahead of the heroes.
