Book Vs. Movie Podcast "Charlie & the Chocolate Family"

The beloved classic Dahl novel against two Hollywood creations. Which is better?

The Margos are taking the weekend off so today we bring you one of our favorite eps from 2016.

We went deep into Raold Dahl territory with this exploration about how Willy Wonka came to being and the two Hollywood interpretations of this unique tale. 

In this ep we discuss:

  • The complicated life of the author and the tragedies he experienced throughout his life. 
  • The main differences between the book and the adapted films
  • The different interpretations that Gene Wilder & Johnny Depp gave to the role of Willy Wonka
  • Which we liked better--book or movie?

"Hidden Figures"

 

The Margos finally get another Margot on the show when they discuss the book to movie adaptaption of Margot Lee Shetterley's Hidden Figures.  We discuss the differences between the book and the film (which was adapted from the 55-page book proposal and not the final book.) 

We have some rather strong opinions on which we liked better. Here are some highlights form our discussion:

  • The amazing cast including Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monae and Taraji P. Henson.
  • The white characters featured in the film that are NOT in the book.
  • Our reactions to the notorious "bathroom scene"
  • Our ideas for a Hidden Figures Hulu series!
  • The outstanding score by Pharrell Williams
  • Margo P.'s and Margo D's new podcast shows coming up soon!

"The Social Network"

Which version of Zuckerberg is the real one? 

 

The Margos are back to regular episodes!

In this episode they discuss the Ben Mezrich book "The Accidental Billionaire" that was published in 2001 and compare it to the 2010 classic film directed by David Fincher (our third Fincher adaptation!) 

There is SO much to uncover here between what the world was like when Facebook was created, the state it was in at the time of the film's release in 2010 and how the world uses Facebook now. 

Trigger warning--we may get a little political here! :) 

In this episode they discuss:

  • The interesting non-writing life of author Ben Mezrich
  • The true importance of Harvard clubs
  • Mark Zuckerberg's multiple lawsuits
  • The amazing cast in the film
  • The music of Trent Reznor
  • How Facebook has changed over the years. 
  • The BIG differences between book, movie and real life
