Book Vs Movie “Shrek”

Book Vs Movie 

Shrek

Yes, it was a book first and the original star was Chris Farley!

Did you not know that Shrek was a book first? Well, it certainly was and the Margos are so excited to talk about the interesting beginnings of the 1990 children’s book by author/illustrator William Steig

At first, Steven Spielberg (he sure turns up pon the show quite a bit!) bought the rights for Dreamworks and wanted Steve Martin involved. Later on, Chris Farley worked on the film with Eddie Murphy and was 90% done with dialogue when he died in 1997. 

Mike Myers came on board in 2000 and a Scottish ogre was born. 

The movie, directed by Andrew Adamson, (we talked a bit about him in our “Chronicles of Narnia” episode) stars Myers, Murphy, Cameron Diaz, and John Lithgow became a smash and produced two sequels. 

In this episode, we talk about the many differences between the original book & the movie to decide which we like better. 

In this ep the Margos discuss:

    • The background of author & illustrator William Steig
    • The basic differences between the book & movie. 
    • How the script changed over the years
    • The cast of the movie including Meyers (Shrek,) Murphy (Donkey,) Diaz (Princess Fiona,) Lithgow (Lord Farquaad,) and Vincent Cassell (Monsieur Hood.)

Clips Featured:

    • Shrek trailer
    • “Shrek is like an onion”
    • “Fiona Vs Monsieur Hood”
    • “The muffin man!”

Book Vs Movie “Pet Sematary”

Book Vs. Movie Podcast

The Stephen King Bonus Ep

With Deana Marie (Twisted Philly)

Pet Sematary (Original & Remake)

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 remake of Pet Sematary directed by Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer (Starry Eyes) and comparing it to the 1989 movie directed by Mary Lambert.

Plus, we delve into the 1983 novel that was inspired by author King’s stay at a residence in Maine for a year that was located by a busy roadway. In real life, his daughter’s cat was run over by a truck and his son was almost struck down by one as well.

King took these events and created the creepy story of the Creed family who moves to Ludlow, Maine to escape the city life. Instead of finding tranquility they discover their home is located near a pet cemetery that has some supernatural powers.
