Book Vs Movie “I, Robot” (Replay) 15th Anniversary Special Ep.

Book Vs Movie (Replay)

“I, Robot”

15th Anniversary Special (Movie)

Isaac Asimov Classic Short Stories Vs Will Smith Blockbuster

For this episode of the Book Vs. Movie podcast the Margos go back to the world of science fiction with this ep talking about the extraordinary life of Isaac Asimov and his most famous work (out of hundreds of books, essays, letters, etc.) I, Robot.  Specifically, we compare the introduction of the book and the short story Little Lost Robot with the Will Smith 2004 film.

The research we did for this show was so much fun as Asimov is simply one of the most fascinating people from the 20th century. Big shout outs to Amazon for having his interviews available for sale with the Bill Moyers show and the series “Prophets of Science Fiction.”

So how does the movie compare to the source material? We discuss and decide in this ep (the hyperlink is at the end of the post) and choose our preferred at the conclusion of our show.

Plus, we have a new Patreon page! Check us out here! https://www.patreon.com/bookversusmovie

In this episode we discuss:

  • The incredible life of the author.
  • Will Smith’s incredible charisma.
  • How the character of Dr. Susan Calvin is presented in the books versus the movie.
  • The amazing performance by Alan Tudyk as Sonny.
  • If the special effects hold up or no. 

Clips used:

What a Creep: R. Kelly (Season 2, Episode 1)

What A Creep

R. Kelly

Season 2, Episode 1

R. Kelly is one of the most successful singers, songwriters and R&B performers of the last 25+ years. He is also accused by multiple women and their families of being a pedophile who keeps women in a sex cult. So it only makes sense to cover this creep on our show! We did the research so you don’t have to read about this creep. 

In this episode, Margo uses the following sources:

And then we will finish this episode with Sonia announcing our “Who’s NOT a creep” this week. (Big hint–she is super awesome and makes the best music ever!

Book Vs Movie “Blade Runner” Replay (RIP Rutger Hauer)

Book Vs. Movie (Replay)

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep” vs “Blade Runner

RIP Rutger Hauer (January 23, 1944-July 19, 2019)

The Margos take on the Sci-Fi classic “Blade Runner” directed by Ridley Scott based on the Phillip K. Dick novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep” because the nerds demanded it of us!

This episode was originally recorded in 2016 so please forgive any sound issues. We wanted to honor the excellent performance by the late actor Rutger Hauer who basically steals the film from star Harrison Ford.

In this episode they discuss:

    • The backstory to Philip K. Dick’s 1968 novel and how it defers greatly from the 1982 film.
    • What role “empathy” plays in Dick’s work
    • The notoriously difficult film shoot and the use of badly wigged stunt doubles
    • The incredible special effects and art direction that changed the look of movies for a generation
    • The sheer awfulness of the 1983 version with narration
    • The three different versions available to view

Clips Featured:

    • Blade Runner original 1983 trailer
    • Rutger Hauer’s last scene as Roy Batty.
    • Outro music by Vangelis

Book Vs Movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”

Book Vs Movie 

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

A return to Truman Capote & the classic film he detested 

Get out that LBD (Little Black Dress) and croissant because we are going to visit Tiffany’s at dawn. The Margos reach back to an old episode and replace it with a brand new redo with Breakfast at Tiffany’s. 

Published in 1958 as a novella by Truman Capote–the story centers around 19-year-old party girl Holly Golightly who makes her living by accepting $50 tips at the bathroom (that is roughly $750 in today’s dollars!) of the Upper East Side nightspots. Holly and her neighbor (who is unnamed in the novella) have an unusual friendship, to say the least. Their adventures together and her ultimate hold on the people who love her makes for an intriguing tale. But how close is it to the movie? 

Turns out the movie directed by Blake Edwards and written by George Axelrod is a big departure from the original material. They move the timeline to 1961 from the post World War 2 years and adds an alluring Patricia Neal and an irritating Mickey Rooney. There are so many differences that in this episode that it is basically jam-packed with trivia and behind the scenes gossip.  

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:

    • Truman Capote’s life and literary career
    • The biggest differences between the book and the movie. 
    • How adorable George Peppard was in this film (swoon!)
    • The sheer racist and awfulness of Mickey Rooney (Mr. Yonioshi)
    • Our favorite scenes from the movie. 

Clips Featured:

    • Breakfast at Tiffany’s trailer
    • Holly & Paul meet for the first time
    • Paul & Holly visit Tiffany’s 
    • Paul tells Holly they “belong together”
    • Outro music Moon River by Audrey Hepburn

What a Creep; Piers Morgan (Season 1, Episode 10)

What A Creep

Piers Morgan

Season 1, Episode 10

Our special Creep this week is Piers Morgan and Sonia really gathers the evidence on why he needs to be subject on our show.

From phone-hacking scandals and fat-shaming to racism and sexism, TV host Piers Morgan is a professional troll, who got his creepy career started working for Rupert Murdoch at News Of The World yet still somehow found a way to sink even lower. 

This is put together with a little help from our friends at:

Wikipedia

New York Magazine

Huffington Post

Buzzfeed

Hollywood Reporter

And then we will finish this episode with Margo announcing “Who’s NOT a Creep” this week.

What a Creep: O.J. Simpson (Season 1, Episode 9)

What A Creep

O.J. Simpson

Season 1, Episode 9

O.J. Simpson is one of the world’s most controversial people having been acquitted of a double murder and then found responsible for them in a civil trial. On top of that, he is a woman-abusing creep who owes millions to Ronald Goldman’s family. 

At one time he was one of the most beloved athletes, pitchmen, and sportscasters. Now he is a convicted felon for a robbery & kidnapping charge from 2007 and recently discovered Twitter. 

We talk about this man who went from living in one of the poorest neighborhoods in San Francisco to be the toast of Hollywood and now lives a cloistered life as an ex-felon.
