Book Vs Movie Podcast "Frankenstein" (Replay)

Book Vs Movie Podcast (Replay) “Frankenstein” The Margos take on the wildest adaptation of the show’s history with the sublime Frankenstein compared to the frankly ridiculous Kenneth Branagh 1994 film. The Margos get very gothic and silly sometimes trying to wrap their heads around Mary Shelley ’s venerated classic novel with Henry V director Kenneth Branagh’s wildly acted and directed film. How crazy is this adaptation? How about a dance sequence between a zombie Helena Bonham Carter...

Book Vs Movie "The Godfather"

Book Vs Movie “The Godfather” The Margos Leave the Gun and Take the Cannolis in this Mob-erific Ep We are here to make an offer you can’t refuse--a redo of Mario Puzo’s The Godfather. The Margos originally covered this book and movies (well, really movies) three years ago when we were both fighting the flu. The result was kind of a meandering mess which we have always been embarrassed by vowed to redo one day as the material calls for nothing less than our best efforts. This episode is...

The David Fincher Film The Margos take on one of the most contested and debated films of the past books AND movies of the last few years-- Gone Girl.

Book Vs Movie "Who Framed Roger Rabbit"

Book Vs Movie “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...
