Book Vs Movie “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” (Replay)

Book Vs Movie (Replay)

Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Wait, it was based on a book?

The Margos were shocked to find out that the 1988 film Who Framed Roger Rabbit (directed by Robert Zemeckis) was based on a very dark book titled Who Censored Roger Rabbit by author Gary K. Wolf which meant, of course, we had to cover them both for our show. (Thanks to all of the members of our Facebook group for pointing us in this direction!)

The book was published in 1981 and is very different in both tone and attitude to the 1988 adaptation. In the “Censored” world–the characters are darker and meaner with totally different stakes than in the movie.

Disney, which produced the film, made some substantial changes in the look and with the characters featured making it much more kid-friendly (but still with some really scary in some scenes!)

So between the book and movie–which did the Margos like better? Check out the link below to find out!

In this ep the Margos discuss :

    • The true origin story of Roger Rabbit
    • The biggest differences between the book and movie
    • How the “toons” speak in the book versus the movie
    • Why the author has continually sued Disney over profits he claims he is still owed
    • The cast of the movie including Bob Hoskins, Christopher Lloyd, Joanna Cassidy, and Charles Fleischer
    • The women who voiced Jessica Rabbit
    • Plus, tons of trivia and tidbits

Clips Featured:

    • Who Framed Roger Rabbit  trailer
    • Why Eddie Valiant (Bob Hoskins) won’t work with toons
    • Jessica Rabbit (Kathleen Turner) meets Eddie

Book Vs Movie “The Talented Mr. Ripley”

Book Vs Movie

The Talented Mr. Ripley

Patricia Highsmith’s 1955 Novel Vs. the Anthony Minghella 1999 Film

Ciao! The Margos wanted to go back a few decades in time and take in the sumptuousness of Italy in the 1950s with one of the most brilliant and evil fictional characters of all time–Tom Ripley.  The Talented Mr. Ripley was first released in 1955 and had themes of homosexuality, classism, and the main character who was somehow enjoyable despite his murderous deeds. (He appears in five “Ripley” novels between 1955-1991.

The film was directed by the late Anthony Minghella and has a superior cast which helped it turn into the classic it remains to this day. (I mean, can you think of anyone better than Jude Law for the part of Dickie Greenleaf?)

The Margos talk about the differences between the book and movie while also delving into the life of Patricia Highsmith who lived quite an interesting existence. Here was her toast to the New Year in 1947:

“To all the devils, lusts, passions, greeds, envies, loves, hates,  strange desires, enemies ghostly and real, the army of memories, with which I do battle—may they never give me peace.”

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 of author Patricia Highsmith
    • Our favorite scenes in the movie

Clips Featured:

    • The Talented Mr. Ripley trailer
    • Tom meets Marge and Dickie on the beach

What A Creep

Ted Bundy

Season 1, Episode 7

Ted Bundy is one of the first serial killers and his legacy is the story of a good looking man who could have been an excellent lawyer but instead was a master manipulator of helpless women. All of this is bunk. He was a total, disgusting, foul, and unrepentant creep and we are giving him the edit he really deserves.

In this episode, Margo used the following sources:

Book Vs Movie “Love, Simon” (Replay for Pride Month)

Book Vs Movie (Replay)

Love, Simon”

The 2015 novel Vs the 2018 movie

The Margos are back in high school with this super-charming story of a teenager, Simon Spier, who is hiding a big secret from his friends and family.  Well, except for one person whom he emails daily but has no idea who he is as they use fake names to communicate. You see, Simon (who identifies as “Jacques” in his emails with “Blue”) is gay and struggling with his growing sexual interest.

Simon is loved by his parents and friends and feels mostly safe in his Atlanta-adjacent home but he still worries about being bullied in high school by not well-meaning jocks and bullies. Plus, he worries about disappointing his parents (though they come across as being very open-minded in both the novel and film.)

In fact, everything seems to be going well for Simon until fellow student Martin finds out his secret and blackmails him into setting him up with Abby (who is the first person Simon comes out to and that causes a problem with his best friend Leah. Lots of “friend” drama here!)

The book (titled Simon Vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda) debuted in 2015 by first-time novelist Becky Albertalli who spent years working as a clinical psychologist working mainly with teenagers. It was a big hit upon its release and was soon sold to be adapted into the film.

In this show, we discuss the differences between book and movie, and there are several to dive into here. Which version did the Margos like better? Check out the link below to find out!

Natalie C. Parker, author of the Beware the Wild duology offers her own feminist take on an adventure with Seafire, which follows Caledonia Styx, the captain of an all-female ship, on her quest to save her brother and take down a vicious warlord’s powerful fleet.

This is the first book in a trilogy about Caledonia whose family was killed by warlord Aric Athair and his bloodthirsty army of Bullets. She captains the ship Mors Navis with a crew of women and girls like her who lost their homes and families because of Aric and his men.

Parker is a lifelong fan of SciFi but has always felt a frustration with the lack of strong female characters in her favorite books. In fact, Natalie remembers telling her mother at a young age that

In regards The Hobbit, “MOM, do you know how many girls are in this book? ONE. And she was a spider.”

This book is thrilling, makes for an excellent gift and will be on sale 50% off the weekend between Friday, November 22nd and Sunday, November 24th at all Barnes & Nobles locations throughout the U.S.!
