Practical Magic

Alice Hoffman 1995 Novel Vs the 1998 Cult Classic Film

The Margos are feeling very witchy in this episode dedicated to Alice Hoffman’s novel Practical Magic and the 1998 adaptation from director/actor Griffin Dunne. This is one of the most requested subjects in our five-year history and we had a ball talking about the 90s look and feel from the film. 

The story revolves around the Owens sisters (Sally & Gillian) who come from a long line of witches in their Massachusetts town and experience bullying and taunting from the locals. Sally becomes introverted as a result while Sally goes a little wild and takes off as a teenager. Sally & Gillian have a bond that is strong and when Gillian comes home in deep trouble–the women use their powers to vanquish their foe. 

The film features the shiniest hair imaginable and a soundtrack that practically screams “90s!” So between book and film, which did we like better?

In this ep the Margos discuss:

    • The career of author Alice Hoffman
    • The biggest differences between the book and movie 
    • Our favorite scenes from the movie

Clips Featured:

    • Practical Magic  trailer

What a Creep: Alan Dershowitz (Season 2, Episode 10)

What A Creep

Alan Dershowitz

Season 2, Episode 10

Alan Dershowitz is a Harvard professor, a professional legal pundit and an author of more than 30 books. Alan Dershowitz also works on the legal defense of rapists like Jeffrey Epstein, Harvey Weinstein, Jim Bakker, Mike Tyson and murderers like OJ Simpson and Jeffrey MacDonald. 

When he’s not on TV arguing that the age of consent should be lowered to 15 (but we can compromise on 16) he’s a defending Predator Trump’s monstrous policies or whining to the press that all of his friends on Martha’s Vineyard won’t talk to him anymore because he defends Trump. What a creep!

Book Vs Movie “The Shawshank Redemption” 25th Anniversary Special

Book Vs Movie

The Shawshank Redemption” (Replay)

The Margos Celebrate the 25th Anniversary of this

Classic Film

If there is one thing we can say about Book Vs Movie fans–they LOVE the Stephen King eps and cannot get enough of them. In particular, we have been getting requests for The Shawshank Redemption since we launched the show and finally had the time to get it together.

The story of the bromance between Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) and Red Redding (Morgan Freeman) is considered one of the best movies of all time and has continually been on syndicated TV since its debut on the TNT network in June 1997.  (Seriously, this movie is always playing on some channel somewhere!)

Unjustly convicted for the murder of his wife and her lover Andy spends decades of his life fighting to clear his name while learning to adapt to life as a prisoner. It’s a story about friendship, survival, revenge, deception, agony, and redemption.

Originally published as a novella Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption in 1982’s Different Seasons the differences between the original story and the movie are plentiful. So which did the Margos like better? Book or Movie? Check out the link below to find out!

In this ep the Margos discuss :

    • The 1982 novella from Different Seasons and how it differs from the movie
    • How director Frank Darabont originally paid one dollar (!) to adapt King’s short story The Woman in the Room in 1983 and how after he wrote the screenplay for Nightmare On Elm Street 3–it gave him the confidence to take on this story.
    • The incredible cast including Robbins, Freeman, Bob Gunton (Warden Norton,) William Sadler (Heywood,) Clancy Brown (Captain Hadley) Gil Bellows (Tommy,) and James Whitmore as Brooks Hatlen.
    • The history behind the casting and setting of the movie
    • A plethora of trivia and behind-the-scenes gossip about the much-lauded film
    • Why King never cashed his $1000 check for the rights to the film!

Clips Featured:

    • The Shawshank Redemption  trailer
    • Andy meets Red for the first time
    • The “rooftop scene” between Andy and Captain Hadley
    • Brooks finds out he is leaving Shawshank
    • The “opera scene”
    • Outro Music:  Duettino–Sull’aria “Le Nozze di Figaro” By Orchester der Deutschen Oper Berlin

Book Vs. Movie 

Stephen King Bonus Ep

With Deana Marie (Twisted Philly)

IT: Chapter 2

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 Andy Muschietti film that is a follow-up to the mass success of the 2017 first chapter which is one of the most successful horror films of all time. 

Chapter 2 follows the adult members of “The Losers Club” as they return to Derry, Maine to take on Pennywise the Clown one more time. How much of the original 1986 IT novel is featured in the movie? Why is it almost three hours long? Do we like the adult casting? All of this is discussed and more. 

Two years ago, Margo & Deana disagreed on how they felt about the first chapter. What do they think about the sequel? You will have to listen below to find out. 

Discussed in this episode:

    • The original story and how they have been adapted
    • What surprised us in this adaptation (and not in a great way!)

What a Creep: Ted Nugent (Season 2, Episode5)

What A Creep

Ted Nugent

Season 2, Episode 5

Ted Nugent (aka “the Motor City Madman”) prides himself on being a crazy, fun-loving rock star who loves Guns and America almost as much as he loves sex with underage girls. He has a habit of telling tales of debauchery which he later denies. 

We have tons of evidence here of Ted being an old school racist, sexist, douche and we get deep into the weeds here. Enjoy! 

Then Sonia talks about a rock star who manages to world-famous legend without being a massive tool.
