Book Vs Movie Podcast

Fight Club”

The Margos get all aggro in this episode of Book Vs. Movie podcast after two years of fans begging us. The hitch? We recorded this 4 days after the 2016 Presidential Election–fun!

In this episode we discuss:

  • The author’s interesting background and the road he traveled to create Fight Club
  • The differences between the 1996 novel and the 1999 classic film starring Brad Pitt and Edward Norton.
  • The classic line “I haven’t been ****-ed like this since grade school” and how it came to be.
  • Brad Pitt’s abs
  • The time Rosie O’Donnell spoiled the plot on her talk show the week the film was released
  • The wonderful performance of Meat Loaf and his fat suit
  • The art direction of the film and how it reminds us of “Blade Runner”
  • The make-up of Helena Bonham Carter 
  • Margo D’s theory about the Narrator’s REAL issue (and it’s a doozy)

Place Your Bets; The Stories are True – Ep. # 56 0

Book Vs Movie “The Princess Bride” 0

Book Vs Movie Podcast

The Princess Bride”

The Margos dissect the differences between the 1973 William Goldman novel from the 1987 cult classic film directed by Rob Reiner

Inconceivable! The Margos decided to redo a Book Vs. Movie podcast ep by taking on one more time (and even better) the book/movie The Princess Bride. We are always surprised to find that our listeners did not realize that beloved classic movie was at one time a book. And that said book is very meta and multi-layered. Spoiler–we love BOTH of the versions of The Princess Bride and are so excited to be able to talk about it all once again!

In this episode we discuss:

  • The origins of the novel and its long history in turnaround
  • The plethora of differences between the book and movie
  • How the movie eventually became a cult classic
  • The incredible cast including Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Andre the Giant, Chris Sarandon and Billy Crystal.
  • Andrea the Giant’s real proportions and the experience he had making the movie

“The Social Network”

Which version of Zuckerberg is the real one? 

 

In this episode, the Margos discuss the Ben Mezrich book “The Accidental Billionaire” that was published in 2001 and compare it to the 2010 classic film directed by David Fincher (our third Fincher adaptation!)

There is SO much to uncover here between what the world was like when Facebook was created, the state it was in at the time of the film’s release in 2010 and how the world uses Facebook now.

Trigger warning–we may get a little political here! 🙂

In this episode they discuss:

  • The interesting non-writing life of author Ben Mezrich
  • The true importance of Harvard clubs
  • Mark Zuckerberg’s multiple lawsuits
  • The amazing cast in the film
  • The music of Trent Reznor
  • How Facebook has changed over the years.
  • The BIG differences between book, movie and real life
