Book Vs Movie “The Godfather” (Replay)

Book Vs Movie (Replay)

The Godfather”

The Margos Leave the Gun and Take the Cannolis in this Ep

We are here to make an offer you can’t refuse–a redo of Mario Puzo’s The Godfather. The Margos originally covered this book and movies (well, really movies) three years ago when we were both fighting the flu.  The result was kind of a meandering mess which we have always been embarrassed by vowed to redo one day as the material calls for nothing less than our best efforts.

This episode is a reflection of our years of fondness for the material and how far we have come along as podcasters. The 1969 novel by Puzo is a real treat to discuss and who doesn’t love talking about Marlon Brando and Al  Pacino? You can listen to the episode in the link below.

In this ep the Margos discuss :

    • The backstory of author Mario Puzo and why he felt compelled to tell the story about a mafia family even though he had no expertise on the subject.
    • The many, many ways the book is different from the two movies it is based on.
    • Why Francis Ford Coppola has such a complicated history with these films.
    • The cast of the movie including Al Pacino, Marlon Brando, James Caan, Robert DeNiro, Talia Shire, Robert Duvall, and Diane Keaton.
    • Our favorite scenes from both films
    • Plus, movie trivia and more!

Clips Featured:

    • Author Mario Puzo & Screenwriter Francis Ford Coppola talk about The Godfather script
    • The Godfather  trailer
    • Don Corleone (Marlon Brando) making deals on his daughter’s wedding day
    • Moe Green (Alex Rocco) with Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) and Fredo Corleone (John Cazale)
    • Outro Music “Theme to the Godfather” Carmine Coppola

How Could We Forget About Queens? Episode #127

Does it look like we don’t all five boroughs of NYC? You might be correct, sir or ma’am! But not for long–we have more pressing topics to discuss, like Nene of RHOA being an a**hole; or Dorit from RHOBH being an a**hole; or Camille, guest of RHOBH being a drunk a**hole; and of course, Luann from RHONY being a sober a**hole. But wait, there’s more–there’s Killing Eve and Fosse/Verdon to discuss. An remember, what ever you do, don’t f*cking touch the Morgan letters! It will make sense after you listen, trust us.

Book Vs Movie “I Am Legend”

Book Vs Movie

I Am Legend”

The Richard Matheson Novel Vs. the Will Smith Movie

The Margos are back and ready to get a little post-apocalyptic with the 1954 classic novella I Am Legend from prolific storyteller Richard Matheson. Set in 1970s Southern California, the novel is about the life of Robert Neville, the seemingly only survivor of a worldwide pandemic which causes people to turn into vampires.

Robert’s life is filled with drinking, madness, and fear and Matheson’s writing becomes venerated by future horror writers like Stephen King.

The film has been remade three times and the Margos decided to focus on the 2007 Will Smith film directed by Francis Lawrence (even though we both forgot about THAT dog scene–yikes!)

So between the novel and the movie–which did we like better? Click the link at the bottom to find out.

In this ep the Margos discuss:

    • The life and incredible body of work of Richard Matheson
    • The main aspects of the book and how it is different from the 2007 movie
    • The fact that the dog featured in the movie is still alive!

Clips Featured:

    • I Am Legend (original trailer)
    • Robert Neville talks with Anna about Bob Marley

Say More Words Right Now! Episode #126

Hey there, Neighbors! This week, we ask the tough questions like “Can Everyone See Ken?” If you watched this week’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, you’ll know exactly what we’re talking about. We also attempt to break down this week’s RHONY, which was tough because the ladies were up to some stuff–doggie fashion shows, grief counseling, shark rooms and Halloween decorations in the Berkshires are just some of the highlights. Margo saw Pet Semetary and the new Twilight Zone and recommends the tell-all, Ladies who Punch. And Erin  is liking a new true-crime podcast. This week is all about monsters! Enjoy!

Book Vs Movie “Pet Sematary”

Book Vs. Movie Podcast

The Stephen King Bonus Ep

With Deana Marie (Twisted Philly)

Pet Sematary (Original & Remake)

It’s time for another Stephen King Bonus ep and Margo D. is joined by Deana Marie of the Twisted Philly podcast to talk about the remake of Pet Sematary directed by Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer (Starry Eyes) and comparing it to the 1989 movie directed by Mary Lambert.

Plus, we delve into the 1983 novel that was inspired by author King’s stay at a residence in Maine for a year that was located by a busy roadway. In real life, his daughter’s cat was run over by a truck and his son was almost struck down by one as well.

King took these events and created the creepy story of the Creed family who moves to Ludlow, Maine to escape the city life. Instead of finding tranquility they discover their home is located near a pet cemetery that has some supernatural powers.

So between the book and two films–what do we think of Pet Semetary? Click on the link below.

Discussed in this episode:

    • The origin of the novel

Book Vs Movie “Gone With the Wind’

Book Vs Movie

Gone With the Wind”

The Margaret Mitchell Pulitzer Prize-Winning Novel Vs the David O. Selznick Film

Fiddly dee! The Margos are feeling the vapors as we finally tackle Margaret Mitchell’s classic novel Gone With the Wind and this time, us two Yankees admit we need some help understanding the history of the book and its author. So for the first time ever–we asked another podcaster to join us for this discussion–Alicia from the Trashy Divorces podcast!

Alicia is a sassy southern bred, Atlanta-based podcaster who loves this book and has tons to say about the iconic author. The Margos found the material to be challenging (to say the least!) so we really wanted to give the fans the opportunity to hear from a Mitchell Stan.

Now the big question, which version did the Margos like better? Check out the link below to hear for yourself!

The Last Voyage of Poe Blythe by Ally Condie

Who do you become when you have nothing left to lose?

There is something Poe Blythe, the seventeen-year-old captain of the Outpost’s last mining ship, wants far more than the gold they tear from the Serpentine River.

Poe has vowed to annihilate the river raiders who robbed her of everything two years ago. But as she navigates the treacherous waters of the Serpentine and realizes there might be a traitor among her crew, she must also reckon with who she has become, who she wants to be, and the ways love can change and shape you. Even—and especially—when you think all is lost.

Ally Condie, the international bestselling author of the Matched trilogy, returns with an intricately crafted and emotionally gripping story of one young woman’s journey to move beyond the grief and anger that control her and find the inner strength to chart her own course.

The Last Voyage of Poe Blythe is one of the most anticipated YA novels of 2019 author Ally Condie will be going on a national tour to promote this Spring & Summer.

You can follow her on social media @AllyCondie @PenguinTeen #PoeBlythe

In this ep the Margos discuss:

    • The life story of the incredibly brilliant (and frustrating!) Margaret Mitchell and her unlikely contribution to a large number of African American doctors and dentists just before she died.
    • The history of the book and how it became a juggernaut in the publishing industry
    • How David O Selznick turned the property into the number one film of all time (and how he still managed to die completely broke)
    • The casting of the movie and how the African American actors were treated at the movie premier and Academy Awards
    • Why the book & film are considered to be controversial

Clips Featured:

    • Gone With the Wind (original trailer)
    • Scarlett first meets Rhett
    • Scarlett, Mammy, and Prissy get ready for the BBQ
    • “I will never be hungry again!”
    • “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn”
