Book Vs Movie Podcast Bonus Episode

Speilberg”

The Margos talk about the excellent HBO documentary of one of the best book-to-movie adaptors in the business

 

The Book Vs. Movie podcast takes a different turn today with our first review–the HBO documentary Spielberg. After covering two episodes featuring Steven Spielberg as director (Jaws and Jurassic Park) and with many more surely to come we felt it was the perfect time to look at his full body of work.

 

In this episode we discuss:

  • Steven Spielberg’s lonely childhood
  • The inspiration for many of his most iconic scenes
  • His friendship with Martin Scorsese, Brian DePalma, George Lucas and Francis Ford Coppola.
  • His adorable parents
  • The amazing film legacy he has created

The Not Fade Away Podcast Ep 4 “The Who in Cincinnati 1979” 0

 

Not Fade Away Podcast

Follow up to Episode 4: The Who in Cincinnati

Welcome back to the Not Fade Away podcast! Today’s’ episode we talk about the tragedy at Riverfront Coliseum in Cincinnati that took place on December 3, 1979. On that night 11 people were killed trying to enter the doors for a concert by The Who.

At the time it was the worst concert tragedy in American history. “Festival Seating” was demonized and the term “stampede” was irresponsibly used to describe it and other incidents over the years. So what actually happened that night? Take a listen to this show!

In this episode, I am helped by someone who was key to the disseminating information the night of Monday, December 3, 1979, in Cincinnati, Paul Wertheimer, founder, and principal of Crowd Management Strategies. The information he gives us will be invaluable to truly understand what happened and why the same mistakes keep popping up around the world.

The full list of those killed that day are as follows:

Karen Morrison 15 Finneytown OH

Stephan Preston 19 Finneytown OH

Philip Snyder 20 Franklin OH

Walter Adams Jr. 22 Trotwood OH

Peter Bowes 18 Wyoming OH

Connie Sue Burns 21 Miamisburg OH

Jacqueline Eckerle 15 Finneytown OH

David Heck 19 Highland Heights KY (Who had escaped the melee only to go back to save people and get crushed in the crowd.)

Teva Rae Ladd 27 Newtown OH (She left behind a husband and two children)

Bryan Wagner 17 Fort Thomas KY

James Warmoth 21 Franklin OH

NEW ep of the “Not Fade Away Podcast” is ready!

Book Vs. Movie “Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein” 0

Book Vs Movie Podcast

Frankenstein”

The Margos take on the wildest adaptation of the show’s history with the sublime Frankenstein compared to the frankly ridiculous Kenneth Branagh 1994 film.

The Margos get very gothic and silly sometimes trying to wrap their heads around Mary Shelley’s venerated classic novel with Henry V director Kenneth Branagh’s wildly acted and directed film. How crazy is this adaptation? How about a dance sequence between a zombie Helena Bonham Carter and Robert De Niro as “the monster?”

This film is completely cray-cray but the backstory of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley is one of the greatest tales of 19th Century literature and we definitely dive into her fascinating life story. Plus, all of the machinations that led to the publishing of her book in 1818 and the revisions in the 1831 version.

 

Also, in this episode we discuss:

  • Fan theories about whether or not this is a feminist novel and writer Sady Doyle’s incredible fan theory about who the creature is based on!
  • Kenneth Branagh’s  insane adaptation (and shirtless performance)
  • The different actors who played the creature over the years.
  • The incredible life of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley and the inspirations for her book
  • The “Year Without a Summer”
  • How truly awful the score and screenplay are by some normally talented people.

Rosemary’s Baby”

Special Podcast Guest Juliette Miranda and Margo D. Take a Close Look at the Classic Book and Movie

 

Margo D. (co-host of Book Vs. Movie) and Juliette Miranda of the Unwritable Rant podcast turn up the spookiness in this episode talking about the classic Ira Levin novel and the venerated film directed by Roman Polanski. It took a year to make this show happen but it’s now ready, enjoy!

In this episode we discuss:

  • The incredible work of Ira Levin
  • Mia Farrow’s incredible performance and offscreen troubles with husband Frank Sinatra (!)
  • The near perfect direction by Roman Polanski and how he frames his shots.
  • The weird rape scene featuring a rather unfortunate “hairy paw”  
  • How strong (or weak) the character of Rosemary is at different times in the movie.

The Hunger Games”

Part 1 of Suzanne Collins’ Trilogy Versus the Jennifer Lawrence Megahit Film

Book Vs. Movie finally takes on the Suzanne Collins’ classic 2008 novel The Hunger Games and compare it to the 2012 movie–both smash hits. We were a little scared to take this on as the trilogy as it has some very fervent fans. But the Margos are as fearless as a tribute from District 12 so we grab our bow & arrow and take aim at each work of art.

What are the differences between the two? Which did the Margos like better? Click the link below to find out.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The popularity of the trilogy
  • The casting of all of the leads
  • How Suzanne Collins adapted her book to screen
  • Why dystopian novels are all the rage
  • Our favorite scenes from the book and how well the movie captured them.

The Graduate”

Did we find a book even worse than Jaws to cover? Oh, we may have done just that!

 

The Book Vs. Movie podcast goes straight to the 60s (but man, it really feels like the 50s sometimes, no?) Turns out the 1967 classic film starring Dustin Hoffman and directed by Mike Nichols was adapted by an obscure novel by a very peculiar man, Charles Webb.

What are the differences between the two? Which did the Margos like better? Click the link below to find out.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The unusual life of Charles Webb and his wife Fred!
  • The career of MIke Nichols up to this point.
  • The casting of Benjamin Braddock and how different Dustin Hoffman is versus the character described in the book.
  • How “rebellious” the characters really are (or aren’t)
  • The amazing music by Simon & Garfunkle

Wiseguy Vs Goodfellas

 

The Margos have no fear of getting whacked after this episode as we are huge fans of both the Nicholas Pileggi 1986 nonfiction book and the classic 1990 film directed by Martin Scorsese. Here we compare and contrast between book versus movie and have some big opinions about them.

Discussed in this ep:

  • How the book came to be
  • Why Martin Scorsese chose to direct another mob picture after Mean Streets
  • The main differences between the real life criminals and the actors who played them.
  • The frenzied life of Henry Hill
  • Those classic over-the-top scenes in the movie
  • What happened to all of the main characters
