Book Vs Movie Podcast: Bonus Mini Ep
Margo D. is joined in this bonus mini episode with Chris Smith of The Dorking Out Show podcast to talk about one of the earlier Stephen King adaptations Firestarter. Smith listened to the book and they both watched the movie and decide which they like better–the book or the movie.
In this episode they discuss:
- Their picks for their favorite and least favorite Stephen King adaptations
- The basic plot of the book and how it differs from the film
- Stephen King’s writing style (and quirky dialogue choices)
- The all-star cast including Drew Barrymore, David Keith, Martin Sheen, Art Carney and George C. Scott
- A very disturbing subplot in the book/movie most people would miss
- The real villain of this movie–the director!
- What is Stephen King’s obsession with fat people?
- All of the books from the 1980s he now owns the rights to once again (Firestarter is on there!)
