The Mist Recap Ep 9: Plus, “Top 5 Most Wanted Stephen King Reboots”

Book Vs. Movie Podcast

Stephen King Bonus Ep:”The Mist” Recap

Episode 9 “The Waking Dream”

Plus: Our “Top 5 Most Wanted Stephen King Reboots”

It’s time to recap episode 9 of  Stephen King’s The Mist TV series and in this special bonus ep of the Book Vs. Movie podcast Margo D. and Deana of the Twisted Philly podcast offer their weekly recap of the Spike TV production plus, they choose their own “Top 5 Most Wanted Stephen King Reboots.”

The podcast clip is at the bottom of this post but here are the basics of this week’s show:

 

The Car:

Bryan/Jonah (Ozekie Morro) Mia (Danica Curcic) and Adrian (Russell Posner) are in the car and Adrian tells the story about how he became a psycho (all kinds of bullies and dad stuff here.)

Running around Brigdon, Maine:

Kevin (Morgan Spector) is not dead and Vic (Erik Knudsen) is redeeming himself by saving him. (I like Vic in this episode!) They decide to go from house to house to gather supplies as they head out to the mall. At one such house they find dead Arrowhead soldiers.

They are chased by a guy with a gun and Vic knocks him out. Well not really, the guy pulls a grenade and blows himself up.  Out of the ashes Kevin is confronted with all kinds of weirdness as The Mist comes into the room. All of the people he has killed are showing up and he is eventually confronted with his own image carrying a bat!

Kevin then kills…Kevin #2.

He and Vic head out in an army vehicle to the mall.

The Mall:

Eve (Alyssa Sutherland) is holding Jay  (Luke Cosgrove) hostage and he asks why bother if  isn’t ultimately going to let him live. They have a back and forth about the rape and she mentions his father being a total creep.

Gus (Isiah Whitlock, Jr.) blames Alex (Gus Birney) for killing Shelly knowing full well he is lying. The mall peeps turn into an angry mob and want to head out to find Alex and kill her.–by hanging. Because she is “evil.”  But Gus thinks they should just send her out into The Mist instead (forgetting that she is immune to it.)

The gang from the car are now at the mall with no idea what is happening there. Adrian tells Alex and Eve that Kevin is dead and is putting on a real show about it. Alex really becomes upset about this news and Eve is trying to stay strong. Adrian claims his father killed Kevin.

The mall villagers are taking their tiki torches (so to speak) to look for Alex.  

Eve, Alex, Jay and Adrian get locked up together. Adrian looks mighty pissed at how happy she is to see Jay.

Bryan/Jonah and Mia are staying in the camping store and she gives her back story about her awful boyfriend that she left.  Mia wants to run away with him after the whole Mist thing gets resolved. However, we need to learn his backstory first.

Bryan/Jonah is looking for supplies and someone recognizes him. His name is Wes (Greg Hovanssian) and they get into a skirmish. Wes ties him up and then salutes him so basically Bryan/Jonah is in charge–we are to assume. But who knows?

The Sewer:

Nathalie (Frances Conroy) and Connor the cop (Darren Pettie) are having a fun time heading to the mall whilst underground. There is a couple (Trevor and Ursula) with them and you know they won’t make it. (Easter egg about the rats and Stephen King’s Graveyard Shift short stories.)

Trevor breaks his leg and Nathalie is all “bye Felicia!” and says they need to abandon him. Ursula attempts to save her husband’s life and Connor kills her. Then rats show up and eat the couple.

Nathalie and Connor have a weird Mother Nature moment involving caresses and a rat. They head to the mall.

And that is it for episode 9!

“The Mist” Recap: Ep 3 “Show and Tell” PLUS Top 5 Stephen King Villains

Book Vs. Movie Podcast

Stephen King Bonus Ep:”The Mist” Recap

Episode 3 “Show and Tell”

It’s episode three  of the Stephen King’s The Mist TV series and in this special bonus ep of the Book Vs. Movie podcast Margo D. and Deana of the Twisted Philly podcast do their weekly recap of the Spike TV production. Is the show getting better each episode?

To be honest, we have been struggling to really enjoy this series. As two die-hard King fans we have been a little disappointed in this particular effort (feeling shades of Under the Dome versus the strange awesomeness of 1991’s Golden Years miniseries.) Is it the writing? Direction? Special effects?

In this podcast we talk about what happened in the “Show and Tell” episode and offer our thoughts.

Plus, Margo D. and Deana pick their “Top 5 Stephen King Villains!”

Major points discussed here:

  • Gus attempting to maintain order not carry out a “Hurricane Katrina situation”
  • What to do with the bodies of the dead soldiers who killed themselves in the previous episode?  
  • The legend of “The Black Spring” of 1860
  • Mia having withdrawals in the basement of the church
  • The continuing ickiness  of Connor the Cop
  • The moth tattoo!
  • Natalie seeing “god”
  • Was Eve some type of warrior before?
  • The slickness of Adrian.

Book Vs. Movie: “Goodfellas”

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 non-fiction 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

Brooklyn Fit Chick News & Notes Plus, Top Workout Songs of 2014!

Brooklyn Fit Chick’s New Year’s Workout Goals

Plus:  Top Workout Songs of 2014 (and the Worst!)

This girl is ready for 2015!

This girl is ready for 2015!

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

I can’t believe this year is finally heading out the window and could not be more grateful to see it go. Not sure what you all have been through in 2014 but I have dealt with health issues, family issues and all sorts of stressful things that have made me feel a little less buoyant than normal. However, I will not allow the past to interfere with my future pleasure so today I am just talking about the good stuff and getting ready for the fabulousness that will be 2015!

First I will do a little housekeeping on the latest BFC things, the Book Vs Movie podcast update, my fitness goals for 2015 and then my picks for the best workout songs of 2014. So let’s do it! (The Brooklyn Fit Chick Vlog to return next Sunday with a fantastic New Year’s/New You Giveaway!)

  • Book Vs Movie Podcast: Margo Porras of She’s Nacho Mama’s Blog and I are working our butts off to get our new website off the ground plus we are using a fancy podcast service called “Libsyn” to get it out to y’all without all of the drama of our previous service which shall not be named. To get ready start reading Joe Klein’s Primary Colors which was turned into a movie in 1998 and directed by Mike Nichols whom we sadly lost this past year. Read the book and/or watch the movie to prep and we will post the details on our Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/bookvsmovie?ref=br_tf

 

  • Tria Hair Removal System: Still using my fabulous Tria hair removal system and am so far impressed with the results. There is less hair growing around the back of my ankles and the side of my face which is making me very happy. I am also using it on my upper lip and underarms and will offer a full review in a week or so.

 

  • CrossFit Goal for 2015: As you may know I am a “Fit Bottomed Girl” who contributes to fitbottomedgirls.com. The gals at FBG asked me (BFC) if I had any fitness goals I want to accomplish and the first thing that popped in my mind was the box jump. I am terrified of performing a box jump but know that if I can overcome my fear—it will make me feel like a rock star to land a good one just once. Coincidentally a new CrossFit gym opening in Brooklyn (the largest n the borough) called Crow Hill Cross Fit (http://www.crowhillcrossfit.com/) and they said if I want a real trainer to teach me to box jump—then they have me covered. So THAT is going to my first fitness goal to tackle this year. (Stay tuned for updates on this!)

 

  • The Crow Pose: My second fitness goal is to perform a crow pose. I am not sure how I will manage it but it has been the one pose in yoga that vexes me and I just want do it once to know how great it feels. And then, hopefully, do it many times after that. I will let you know what steps I am taking to make this happen. (Wish me luck!)

 

And now for something completely different—the Brooklyn Fit Chick Top Workout Songs of 2014!

I have been churning out a couple of playlist each month for the last few years and think I have it down to science at this point. Today I am featuring the songs that made me want to work harder and inspired my students to give a little extra effort during class. So here they are in particular order:

KONGOS/ “Come With Me Now”

Technically I am cheating here because this song came out in Africa in 2011 but they were only introduced in the U.S. this past year so I am putting this in the 2014 column. “Come With Me Now’ has a fantastic hard-driving beat and always made people’s heads bop along to the music.

 

Mark Ronson (featuring Bruno Mars)/ “Uptown Funk”

Come on—what better song came out this year? Everything about it says move your butt and have some fun. A funky, modern masterpiece that makes you want to sing along and dance with abandon.

 

Avicii/ “Wake Me Up”

Swedish hotboy Avicii knows how to put together a tune and this one is just about scientifically proven to be THE MOST PERFECT warm-up number for any kind of class you teach. Seriously—I am his biggest fan now.

 

Dear Rouge/ “I Heard I Had”

This band is from Vancouver and they are winning all sorts of radio contest in Canada. “I Heard I Had” is about as great as a “second” song for a playlist as it gets. Download it now!

 

OneRepublic/ “Love Runs Out”

A foot-stomping favorite in my classes that always gets people into the best mood.

 

Taylor Swift/ “Shake It Off”

I don’t care about her dating life nor will I hassle her because she claims to be a New Yorker now (as if!) but damn this woman knows how to write a song that cooks! “Shake it Off’ is just about as perfect of a pop confection as it gets. Brava Taylor!

 

John Legend/ “All of Me” (Tiesto’s Birthday Treatment)

This is another perfect song for a warm-up that puts people in a good mood. Sweet, romantic and dancy—what is not to like about it?

 

And the worst workout song for 2014——-“Fancy” by Iggy Azalia

Someone told me Iggy Azalia would be THE big deal this past summer so I started including this dreadful song in my classes. A tuneless,annoying piece of tripe that make me want to gauge my eyes out with my thumbs. My take on Iggy Aazalia? NO. Thank. You!

But if you must hear it for yourself…

 

That’s all I have for today folks. I am so looking forward to all of the media reviews, playlist, Vlogs, giveaways and gear reviews for the new year. Let’s bring on 2015!!!
