Red Rocket (Featuring Jay Ledbetter)

On the 217th episode of Piecing It Together, film critic Jay Ledbetter joins me for a wild one… Sean Baker’s latest Red Rocket is about a fading porn star played by Simon Rex who tries to start over. He just may be the worst character in any movie this year, and the film is fascinating. Puzzle pieces include Good Time, Lolita, American History X and It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia.

Avengers Endgame (Super Episode)

On the 59th episode of Piecing It Together, it’s time for a SUPER-EPISODE! As we did with its predecessor, Avengers Infinity War, Avengers Endgame is a movie too big for just one co-host. So instead I got help covering the Marvel movie to end all Marvel movies (at least until July’s new Spider-Man) from David Quinones, Chad Clinton Freeman, Jacob Tiranno, Bee Garner, Rico Albarracin and The Lady-Wan. Puzzle pieces include Oceans 12, The Wrestler, The Last Jedi and Back To The Future.

A Star Is Born (Featuring Joe Black)

On the 43rd episode of Piecing It Together, new co-host Joe Black and I discuss one of the biggest movies of 2018, A Star Is Born. This is the 4th version of this classic story of one star’s ascent while her mentor goes down in flames, and quite frankly, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper knock it out of the park. Puzzle pieces include Crazy Heart, Once, and Lady Gaga’s actual career.
