On this special episode of Piecing It Together, one of my oldest friends and fellow composer TJ Kross joins me to talk about our picks for the best Film Scores of the decade. This is a very special episode for me because I spent most of this decade chasing the dream of being a film music composer, so it’s obviously a subject near and dear to my heart.
On the 107th episode of Piecing It Together, it’s time for another super-episode! I’m joined by JC, TJ, David Michor, Adam Wells, The Lady-Wan and Joe Black to talk about the epic conclusion to the 9 film Star Wars story in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Of course it won’t really be the end, but it’s still Star Wars so the only proper way to cover it is with multiple guests.
On the 20th episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host TJ Kross and I discuss the Uncharted Live Action Fan Film. Uncharted is based on the hit video-game series, one that always made sense for a film but every time Hollywood started trying to get one off the ground it would lose momentum, directors or actors and go back to the drawing board. All the while, fans asked for the actor Nathan Fillion to play the role of Nathan Drake, and somehow, director Allan Ungar finally made it happen. At 15 minutes, this fan film is unlike anything we’ve ever covered on the show before, but it still made for a great conversation with plenty of other movie (and video-game) inspirations to talk about. Puzzle pieces include Tomb Raider, Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Da Vinci Code and Mission Impossible.
On the 4th episode of Piecing It Together, co-host TJ Kross and I discuss the new reboot of Tomb Raider, based on the hit video-game series. Alicia Vikander stars as the new Lara Croft in an adventure filled with puzzles, action and almost exact recreations of the most recent Tomb Raider games. Puzzle Pieces include Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, The Revenant, Sahara and the Uncharted video-game series.
