Book Vs Movie Podcast

Book Vs. Movie is the podcast that asks the questions "Which was better...the book or the movie?" Spoiler Alert! We give away the main details, uncover the plot points, discuss casting choices and shower with praise (or pummel with snark) as we see fit. Hosts are Margo P. (She's Nacho Mama's Blog) and Margo D. (Creator of Brooklyn Fit Chick.com) and we are not afraid to tell it like it is!

Book Vs Movie Podcast

"All of the Movie Batmans"

Margo D. talks with Justin of "Comical Podcast" and George from @Metal Geeks to talk about our latest (and least favorite) and least favorite Batman films. 

We cover them all from Michael Keaton to Ben Affleck with a nod to the mastery of Adam West to the awesomeness of Mark Hamill. 

Book Vs. Movie Bonus Ep: "All of the Movie Batmans" 

Plus, they try to convince us in giving Batman Vs. Superman a go at the actual movie theater and not wait for VOD. (The jury is still out!)
