More
Book Vs Movie Podcast “The Exorcist” The Margos get a little spooky before the holiday season with the 1971 novel The Exorcist written by the very interesting William Peter Blatty.

Book Vs. Movie "Mary Shelley's Frankenstein"

10/15/2017
More
Book Vs Movie Podcast “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 and...

Book Vs Movie Podcast Redo “Jaws” For all of you who have told us that “the book is always better the the movie,” get ready to eat crow! The Book Vs. Movie podcast takes on (again!) the 1975 classic movie Jaws as well as the truly not-so-great 1974 novel from the otherwise very thoughtful author (and shark supporter) Peter Benchley.
