Stephen King Bonus Ep:“The Mist” Recap

Episode 9 “The Waking Dream”

Plus: Our “Top 5 Most Wanted Stephen King Reboots”


It’s time to recap episode 9 of  Stephen King’s The Mist TV series and in this special bonus ep of the Book Vs. Movie podcast Margo D. and Deana of the Twisted Philly podcast offer their weekly recap of the Spike TV production plus, they choose their own “Top 5 Most Wanted Stephen King Reboots.”

The podcast clip is at the bottom of this post but here are the basics of this week’s show:

 

The Car:

Bryan/Jonah (Ozekie Morro) Mia (Danica Curcic) and Adrian (Russell Posner) are in the car and Adrian tells the story about how he became a psycho (all kinds of bullies and dad stuff here.)

Running around Brigdon, Maine:

Kevin (Morgan Spector) is not dead and Vic (Erik Knudsen) is redeeming himself by saving him. (I like Vic in this episode!) They decide to go from house to house to gather supplies as they head out to the mall. At one such house they find dead Arrowhead soldiers.

They are chased by a guy with a gun and Vic knocks him out. Well not really, the guy pulls a grenade and blows himself up.  Out of the ashes Kevin is confronted with all kinds of weirdness as The Mist comes into the room. All of the people he has killed are showing up and he is eventually confronted with his own image carrying a bat!

Kevin then kills...Kevin #2.

He and Vic head out in an army vehicle to the mall.

The Mall:

Eve (Alyssa Sutherland) is holding Jay  (Luke Cosgrove) hostage and he asks why bother if  isn’t ultimately going to let him live. They have a back and forth about the rape and she mentions his father being a total creep.

Gus (Isiah Whitlock, Jr.) blames Alex (Gus Birney) for killing Shelly knowing full well he is lying. The mall peeps turn into an angry mob and want to head out to find Alex and kill her.--by hanging. Because she is “evil.”  But Gus thinks they should just send her out into The Mist instead (forgetting that she is immune to it.)

The gang from the car are now at the mall with no idea what is happening there. Adrian tells Alex and Eve that Kevin is dead and is putting on a real show about it. Alex really becomes upset about this news and Eve is trying to stay strong. Adrian claims his father killed Kevin.

The mall villagers are taking their tiki torches (so to speak) to look for Alex.  

Eve, Alex, Jay and Adrian get locked up together. Adrian looks mighty pissed at how happy she is to see Jay.

Bryan/Jonah and Mia are staying in the camping store and she gives her back story about her awful boyfriend that she left.  Mia wants to run away with him after the whole Mist thing gets resolved. However, we need to learn his backstory first.

Bryan/Jonah is looking for supplies and someone recognizes him. His name is Wes (Greg Hovanssian) and they get into a skirmish. Wes ties him up and then salutes him so basically Bryan/Jonah is in charge--we are to assume. But who knows?

The Sewer:

Nathalie (Frances Conroy) and Connor the cop (Darren Pettie) are having a fun time heading to the mall whilst underground. There is a couple (Trevor and Ursula) with them and you know they won’t make it. (Easter egg about the rats and Stephen King’s Graveyard Shift short stories.)

Trevor breaks his leg and Nathalie is all “bye Felicia!” and says they need to abandon him. Ursula attempts to save her husband’s life and Connor kills her. Then rats show up and eat the couple.

Nathalie and Connor have a weird Mother Nature moment involving caresses and a rat. They head to the mall.

And that is it for episode 9!

Book Vs Movie

“I Robot”

Isaac Asimov Classic Short Stories Vs Will Smith Blockbuster


For this episode of the Book Vs. Movie podcast the Margos go back to the world of science fiction with this ep talking about the extraordinary life of Isaac Asimov and his most famous work (out of hundreds of books, essays, letters, etc.) I Robot.  Specifically we compare the introduction of the book and the short story Little Lost Robot with the Will Smith 2004 film.

The research we did for this show was so much fun as Asimov is simple one of the most fascinating people from the 20th century. Big shout outs to Amazon for having his interviews available for sale with the Bill Moyers show and the series “Prophets of Science Fiction.”

So how does the movie compare to the source material? We discuss and decide in this ep (the hyperlink is at the end of the post) and choose our preferred at the conclusion of our show.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The incredible life of the author.
  • Will Smith’s incredible charisma.
  • How the character of Dr. Susan Calvin is presented in the books versus the movie.
  • The amazing performance by Alan Tudyk as Sonny.
  • If the special effects hold up or no. 

Clips used:

Bill Moyers “A World of Ideas Writers” with Isaac Asimov (1990)

I Robot Trailer

I Robot Scene with Will Smith

Outro Music:

Gettin’ Jiggy With It” by Will Smith

Stephen King Bonus Ep:“The Mist” Recap

Episode 8 “The Law of Nature”

Plus: Our “Top 5 Stephen King Casting Choices”

We are finally seeing the end of  Stephen King’s The Mist TV series and in this special bonus ep of the Book Vs. Movie podcast Margo D. and Deana of the Twisted Philly podcast offer their weekly recap of the Spike TV production plus, they choose their own “Top 5 Casting Choices in  a Stephen King Production.”

The podcast clip is at the bottom of this post but here are the basics of this week’s show:

Adrian’s House:

Kevin (Morgan Spector), Bryan/Jonah (Ozekie Morro) Mia (Danica Curcic) and Adrian (Russell Posner) are in the car and running out of gas. As luck would have it they are on Adrian’s block. He wants to check on his family and Mia & Bryan/Jonah want to look for gas.

Kevin wants to hide out in the car parked in the garage as this all seems like a bad idea to him.

Mia and Bryan/Joah have a hot encounter in the backseat of a car. (Kind of like Jack & Rose from Titanic except they are hiding out from The Mist and not an enraged Billy Zane.)

Adrian sees his awful father who casually tells his son that his mother is lying dead on the couch. Then he admits to his father that he was the one who raped Alex.

He shoots his father and then gets kin a tussle with Kevin who found the date rape drugs at the house. Adrian knocks him out and then heads to the car which now includes excommunicated from-the-mall Vic (Erik Knudsen) who somehow has escaped The Mist all of this time.

Adrian tells them Kevin is dead but IS HE????

The Mall:

Alex (Gus Birney) and Jay (Luke Cosgrove) are enjoying each other’s company  which is causing whispers at the  mall and making Alex’s mom Eve  (Alyssa Sutherland) really unhappy.  In fact, with a nod to Wendy putting Jack into the pantry in The Shining, Eve locks Jay up in a closet. (Because, that’s a sustainable plan!)

Meanwhile,  Gus (Isiah Whitlock, Jr.) is having a very hard time keeping law & order at the Mall. Shelley (Alexandra Ordorlis) finds out about his hidden stash of food. He "brains" her and then chokes her to death!

Being a class act, he blames this on Alex.

The Church:

Nathalie (Frances Conroy) and Connor the cop (Darren Pettie) have a deep discussion about his parenting abilities. He confesses that he believes his son is capable of raping Alex and blames his lack of being a good role model as the main issue.

Natalie thinks The Mist maybe just what the town needed to clear out all of the bad people and sets off to take everyone to the mall and check out what is happening there. 

What will their reception be like at the mall? We most likely will find out in episode 9!

Personally I am just looking forward to what Deana picks for the weekly Stephen King Top 5.

Topics covered :

  • How lucky they are to have Frances Conroy on this show!
  • The way sexual assault and mental illness are handled

Plus, Margo and Deana each pick their “Top 5 Stephen King Casting Choices”

Stephen King Bonus Ep:“The Mist” Recap

Episode 7 “Over the River and Through the Woods”

Plus: The “Top 5 Stephen King Death Scenes”


It’s episode 7 of  Stephen King’s The Mist TV series and in this special bonus ep of the Book Vs. Movie podcast Margo D. and Deana of the Twisted Philly podcast offer their weekly recap of the Spike TV production plus, they choose their own “Top 5 Stephen King Death Scenes.”

This episode is titled “Over the River and Through the Woods” and it is seems everyone is about to hit their mental/emotional limit.

The podcast clip is at the bottom of this post but here are the basics of this week’s show:

The Hospital:

Kevin (Morgan Spector), Bryan (Ozekie Morro) and Adrian (Russell Posner) are now getting refuge in the psych ward which is surprisingly safe. Well, except for a certain resident there named Nash (Philip Ettinger)

Mia decides to tell Bryan that his real name is Jonah Dixon and that she is going on a quick detox. This requires him to strap her to a bed and witness her going through major withdrawals. She makes it through along with his help and they rejoin the group.

Adrian shares a room with Tyler (Christopher Gray) who has a Tom Hardy mouth. Tyler shares an awful story about sexually assaulting a kid from school then snuggles next to Adrian in his bed.

Adrian is then kidnapped by Nash who explains that because he can “see” things others cannot--Adrian is evil deep down and must be destroyed. Kevin convinces Nash to take him instead and then promptly beats the psych patient to death.

Kevin, Bryan/Jonah, Mia and Adrian leave the hospital. Tyler wants to stay behind knowing that he will most likely die there. (Major gay panic with this kid!)

The Mall:

Lots of tension at the mall over the lack of food available. (Why is that? Don’t they have a food court there?)

Alex (Gus Birney) now believes that there is no way that Jay (Luke Cosgrove) raped her and wants him to stay at their section of the mall. Eve  (Alyssa Sutherland) is not happy about this but Alex is being bratty and taking advantage of the situation.

Eve gets a baby monitor and plants it at the other end of the mall so they can keep tabs on the bigger group.

We find out that Gus (Isiah Whitlock, Jr.) is dealing with people who are becoming increasingly paranoid and delusional. Starting with the mall cop (Romaine Waite) getting ‘hangry” and wanting to explore for more food and then Shelley (Alexandra Ordorlis) trying to convince everyone that Alex is the cause of all of their problems and brought The Mist into the town.

The Church:

Nathalie (Frances Conroy) and Father Romanov (Dan Butler) are about to have an ecclesiastical showdown. It begins with Connor the cop (Darren Pettie) accusing Romanov of being a pedophile and then beating him about the face. Nathalie is sitting serenely as this is all happening.

Romanov offers a challenge to Nathalie. They both go out into The Mist and see who makes it back. Nathalie not only agrees to this preposterous idea but strips naked and marches right out there.

And guess what?  We get the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse! Seriously, they shoot an arrow through Romanov and then drag him away. (I may have giggled during this silly sequence.)

So Natalie is now our Christ-like figure. Where the hell is this show going? Please someone, tell me!

Plus, Margo and Deana each pick their “Top 5 Stephen King Death Scenes!”

Stephen King Bonus Ep:“The Mist” Recap

Episode 6 “The Devil You Know”

Plus: Our “Top 5 Stephen King Guilty Pleasures”


Here we are at episode six of  Stephen King’s The Mist TV series and in this special bonus ep of the Book Vs. Movie podcast Margo D. and Deana of the Twisted Philly podcast offer their weekly recap of the Spike TV production plus, we pick our “Top 5 Stephen King Guilty Pleasures.”

This episode is titled “The Devil You Know” and it is equal parts action-packed and terribly confusing.

Here are the basics of this episode:

The Hospital: Kevin (Morgan Spector), Bryan (Ozekie Morro) and Adrian (Russell Posner) are all still at the hospital and Kevin feels the need to leave. (Killing his brother has made him anxious.)

However, he learns from Adrian that Mia (Danica Curcic) stole their car and they are stuck. Adrian confronts a nurse and finds out that people are disappearing from the hospital but that shouldn't worry at all about that.  He also tries to talk to his crush/hookup to say goodbye but gets the cold shoulder.

Kevin discovers Dr.. Bailey is kidnapping people, filling them up with drugs and sending them out into The Mist. He has lost his mind and Kevin is his next victim. He is rescued by Bryan and Adrian.

Bryan meanwhile kills his “twin” and is anxious to leave. Mia comes back for her journey (more on that later) and The Mist is coming into the hospital and the gang is trapped.

The Mall:

Alex (Gus Birney) and her mother Eve  (Alyssa Sutherland) decide to go shopping as a distraction. There is a really long scene about a jacket and then Alex says she thinks she should go out into The MIst to find her dad because The Mist does not have any interest in her so she would be safe. Eve says “hello no” so Alex decides to make a snaky visit to the shop “Hiker’s World” to get supplies.

Whilst there she gets locked in a break room and then gasoline is flooding in, then the place goes up in flames. Jay the Rapist (Luke Cosgrove) saves her and then gets mouthy with Eve when she admonishes him. Turns out Lila set the fire in retaliation for her daughter dying in Alex’s care.

Also, Eve creates phony fliers to give hope to everyone at the Mall. Gus (Isiah Whitlock, Jr.) thinks this is nuts.

Church:

Nathalie (Frances Conroy) and the cop (Connor Heisel) continue their friendship. She makes a strange case for how everyone loves a disaster which made zero sense to Margo D.

Link (Dylan Authors) is the teen boy version of Mrs. Carmody and has turned into a vengeful zealot. He attempts to lock Nathalie in the attic. She gets wise to this and instead breaks open a window which allows The MIst to come in and locking the boy in--basically killing him.

House:

Mia ia back at the house where she first was looking for money and finds her dead mother upstairs in a bedroom. The mother tells her she loves her and that is she wants to kill herself then to go for it. Mia gets out and heads back to the hospital.

Topics covered :

  • Stephen King easter eggs
  • What is the deal with The Mist?
  • Where is this all going to?

Plus, Margo and Deana each pick their “Top 5 Stephen King Guilty Pleasures!”

Book Vs Movie

 

“Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children”

The Ransom Riggs Book vs the Tim Burton Film

 

The Margos delve into the world of fantasy in this episode discussing the Ranson Riggs’ Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children which spent 70 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list in 2012 and spawned two sequels Hollow City and Library of Souls.

 

Normally Margo P. doesn’t go for the scary stuff but when her preteen told her this was her favorite book of all time and though she will never see the movie (she loathes adaptations--go figure!) she thought we should give it a go.

 

The book is a wonderful journey of a young man exploring his grandfather’s old photographs that lead him on an amazing journey on a Welsh Island. Does that sound boring? Believe us, it is a very funny and entertaining read with incredible vintage photos telling the story and a very funny & charming lead in the character of Jacob Portman.

So how does the Tim Burton movie stack up compared to the YA novel?

In this episode we discuss:

  • The excellent Audible book ready by actor Jesse Bernstein.
  • Eva Green’s portrayal as Miss Peregrine.
  • What scenes are different between book and movie (Jake  (Asa Butterfield) meeting Emma (Ella Purnell) the first time!)
  • How Miss Peregrine’s capture is handled between the two.
  • The character Barron (Samuel L. Jackson)
  • Switching Emma’s superpower (fire) with less character Olive (breath)
  • Jake’s truncated backstory between book & film
  • The fight scenes & CGI at the end of the film
  • The changes in character of Dr. Golan (Allison Janey)
  • How really mean the movie dad (Chris O’Dowd) is versus the book.

 

Outro Music: “Bedtime Stories” by Mike Higham & Matthew Margeson (Miss Peregrine soundtrack)

Stephen King Bonus Ep:“The Mist” Recap

Episode 5 “The Waiting Room”

Plus: Our “Top 5 Scariest Stephen King Stories”


It’s episode 5 of the Stephen King’s The Mist TV series and in this special bonus ep of the Book Vs. Movie podcast Margo D. and Deana of the Twisted Philly podcast offer their weekly recap of the Spike TV production.

This episode is titled “The Waiting Room” as we now have a new location--the hospital. (Thankfully they ditch the church and mall in this episode!).

It’s one of the gorier chapters so far and had some genuine scares but unfortunately, they still have some pretty lame dialogue.  

Here are the basics of this episode:

The Hospital: Kevin (Morgan Spector), Mia (Danica Curcic), Bryan (Ozekie Morro) and Adrian (Russell Posner) arrive at the hospital just in time for Bryan to have emergency surgery for his bullet wound. The hospital has only 2-days worth of power and food left and people are becoming panicked.

Kevin sees his creepy brother Mike (Peter Murnik) who was attacked in The Mist and has some metal stuck in his abdomen. The doctors can’t operate on him so Kevin offers to do it even though his brother is being SUCH A TOOL. They have a contentious relationship due to the ever-sexy Eve (Alyssa Sutherland.)  

(More on that later.)

Mia looks for Bryan (who is in room 237) and another gentleman is in his bed. We are reminded that our Bryan has amnesia and assumed who he was based on the ID he had on him. Mia freaks out and leaves the hospital with their truck.

Adrian meets up with the jock from high school who has hassled him in the past and who drops the F word like a maniac. (Not the F bomb which is bleeped throughout the show.) Adrian kisses him, the jock beats the snot out of him and then they make out and have sex. Because, of course.

Mike operates on his brother and The Mist shows up bringing lots of blood and leeches. Kevin reluctantly kills his brother and runs away.

The Past:

Eve and Kevin have a very fraught relationship. When they move into their house he surprises her by setting up Alex’s bedroom as a little girl’s paradise. Eve tells him she has never felt this happy and yet less like herself. (Mixed messages, Eve?)

She has an awkward encounter with his brother Mike (did THEY have sex in the past?) and later has afternoon sex with Kevin which apparently never happens. This is when we learn she had a reputation in high school and Alex is not Kevin’s daughter. (Wut?)

Topics covered :

  • The reveal that Alex (Gus Birney) is NOT Kevin’s daughter!
  • The use of the “F” word both bleeped and not.
  • Mia’s mood swings!
  • What is it with sex and this show?
  • The “Room 237” reference
  • What is the deal with Bryan Hunt?
  • The leeches!!!
  • Is Adrian up to no good?
  • What are the rules of The Mist!

Plus, Margo and Deana each pick their “Top 5 Scariest Stephen King Stories!”

Book Vs Movie

“Julie & Julia”

The Julie Powell Book vs. The Nora Ephron Film

 

Is it us, or does the very suggestion of reading and watching this best selling book and popular film make you crave a life in Paris or what?!  The Margos are back with a full episode talking about Julie Powell’s 2005 Julie & Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen which was based on her 2002 Blog “The Julia & Julia Project.

Julie went from NYC cubicle drone to a popular food blogger in a short span of time when she chronicled her year’s journey into cooking every single recipe in Julia Child’s masterpiece Mastering the Art of French Cooking.

Nora Ephron wrote and directed the 2009 film starring Amy Adams and Meryl Streep. It seems people are divided on which part of the film they prefer. (Oh, let’s be honest--it’s “Julia and Paul” by a landslide!)

But how different is the book “Julie” to the cinema version versus the real live woman who wrote Cleaving: A Story of Marriage, Meat and Obsession chronicling her affair on her husband and journey into meat cutting?

The Margos get very meta in this episode where try to make sense out of all of this craziness between what we assume about Julie Powell in the book and the Nora Ephron version we get in the movie.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The tone of the book versus the movie directed by the amazing Nora Ephron.
  • Meryl Streep and Stanley Tucci as Julia & Paul Child and the incredible love story of the characters they play.
  • Amy Adams’ winsome portrayal of Julie Powell.
  • The FOOD in every scene!
  • Our desire to move to Paris. (Mais, oui!)
  • The importance of New York City as a backdrop to the story post 9/11.
  • Discussing Julia Childs’ reaction to the Blog. (Big hint, she was NOT a fan!)
  • We touch a bit on Cleaving as Margo D. became kind of obsessed with Julie Powell’s marriage after hearing about the aftermath of the movie on her relationship.
  • Plus, My Life in France is mentioned which is the story about Julia and Paul’s years in France (1948-1954) based on the many letters he wrote to his brother.

Stephen King Bonus Ep:“The Mist” Recap

Episode 4 “Pequod”

Plus. Top 5 "Stephen King Heroes"


Welcome to episode 4 of the Stephen King’s The Mist TV series and in this special bonus ep of the Book Vs. Movie podcast Margo D. and Deana of the Twisted Philly podcast offer their weekly recap of the Spike TV production.

Now we are at episode 4 titled “Pequod” which is the name of the whaling ship in Herman Melville’s  Moby Dick and it was named for the Pequot tribe that was based in New England.

This episode has a bit of everything-- paranoia, mist beasts, foul language, dead kids and a little bit of “end of time/wrath of God”-type stuff. The action takes place in three places: A gas station, the mall and the church and people are at various levels of stressed out and frightened.

In essence for each location the following is happening:

The Gas Station: Kevin (Morgan Spector), Mia (Danica Curcic), Bryan (Ozekie Morro) and Adrian (Russell Posner) can’t seem to get their car moving so they meet up at a gas station. There they find Clay (Teagle F. Bougere) who is armed and knows Kevin because Eve is his son;s teacher. Clay wants to stay and he gives his survivalist care to the gang. (He thinks he will reunite with his son at the station. Poor Clay…)

The Mall:

Eve (Alyssa Sutherland) confesses she is glad Kevin isn’t there because she blames him for Alex’s (Gus Birney) rape. Alex takes a young child to the bookstore to hang out and forget their troubles for a bit. The game show bros think it would be a fine idea to get a harpoon and bring the dead bodies from the parking lot. The mist shows up and causes one death and one bro getting kicked out for good. Also, the mist has no interest in Alex (!)

Church:

Book Vs. Movie Podcast

Stephen King Bonus Ep:“The Mist” Recap

Episode 3 “Show and Tell”


It’s episode three  of the Stephen King’s The Mist TV series and in this special bonus ep of the Book Vs. Movie podcast Margo D. and Deana of the Twisted Philly podcast do their weekly recap of the Spike TV production. Is the show getting better each episode?

To be honest, we have been struggling to really enjoy this series. As two die-hard King fans we have been a little disappointed in this particular effort (getting same shades of Under the Dome versus the strange awesomeness of 1991’s Golden Years miniseries.) Is it the writing? Direction? Special effects?

In this podcast we talk about what happened in the “Show and Tell” episode and offer our thoughts.

Major points discussed here:

  • Gus attempting to maintain order not carry out a “Hurricane Katrina situation”
  • What to do with the bodies of the dead soldiers who killed themselves in the previous episode?  
  • The legend of “The Black Spring” of 1860
  • Mia having withdrawals in the basement of the church
  • The continuing ickiness  of Connor the Cop
  • The moth tattoo!
  • Natalie seeing “god”
  • Was Eve some type of warrior before?
  • The slickness of Adrian.

Book Vs Movie

“The Orchid Thief” Vs “Adaptation”

 

The Margos are back and taking on their most interesting episode yet with a compare and contrast of the Susan Orlean novel The Orchid Thief (which began as a New Yorker article) and the hit Charlie Kaufman/Spike Jones movie Adaptation. If there has ever been a reason for this podcast to exist --this material is the one to tackle!

So many differences between the book and movie here, we are not quite sure where to begin but let us give it a try.

 

In this episode we discuss:

  • The interesting history between when the magazine article appeared to several years later where Charlie Kaufman took several liberties with the material.
  • The intense performance by Nicolas Cage (which earned him an Academy Award nomination)
  • The past work of Charlie Kaufman and why he chose to adapt the material as he did.
  • The ingenious casting of Meryl Streep, Chris Cooper and Tilda Swinton.
  • The totally bananas plot twists and turns.
  • How Susan Orleans really feels about this adapted piece of her work.
  • The many, many passages devoted in The Orchid Thief to the history of stealing orchids over the last centuries.

Ep. 1 "Pilot"

Margo D. is co-hosting this series recap with Deana of the Twisted Philly podcast (Margo P. avoids the scary stuff!) We are excited to talk about Spike TV's take on the Stephen King novella and really hope it will be cool! (Margo D. is still smarting after the dreadful "Under the Dome" effort.)

In this ep they discuss:

  • The backstory about the original novella and the 2007 movie which are considered classics. 
  • How we see the story unfolding so far
  • What we like (and don't like) about the first episode.

The Margos go way back to their 20-something youth to discuss the lovely and talented Renee Zellweger and her most celebrated role as Bridget Jones.

The Margos have no fear of getting whacked after this episode as we are huge fans of both the Nicholas Pileggi 1986 non-fiction book and the classic 1990 film directed by Martin Scorsese. Here we compare and contrast between book versus movie and have some big opinions about them. 

Discussed in this ep:

  • How the book came to be

  • The main differences between the real life criminals and the actors who played them.
  • The frenzied life of Henry Hill
