Book Vs Movie

A Wrinkle in Time”

The Margos Discover that Not All Things Featuring Oprah Are Made of Gold

 

The Margos dive into a children’s classic novel--A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle and offer their thoughts on the 1962 novel that spawned four sequels and earned the love of millions of fans all over the world. The story of a plucky 13-year-old heroine (Meg Murry) who is smart, awkward and lonely due to her father missing for over four years has inspired readers for decades to truly be themselves and trust their instincts.

L’Engle won the Newbery Medal in 1962 for her “junior novel” and its fans have been demanding for years a proper adaptation that honors the material. So does the 2018 film directed by Ava Duvernay make the cut? The Margos discuss in this episode which you can listen to using the link at the bottom of this post.

In this ep the Margos discuss :

  • The biography of author Madeleine L’Engle and common themes in her books
  • The changes made in the 2018 movie adaptation
  • The past films of director Ava Duvernay
  • The multiracial casting of the movie including Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Storm Reid, and Chris Pine
  • Plus, movie trivia and more!

 

Clips Featured:

  • A Wrinkle in Time  trailer
  • “The Gifts” Mindy Kaling, Reese Witherspoon, and Oprah Winfrey
  • Outro Music “Flower of the Universe” Sade

Stephen King Bonus Ep

"Castle Rock”

Season One Review/Recap

 

Let’s hear it for another Stephen King bonus ep! SK superfans Margo D. and Deana of the Twisted Philly decided to review the popular Hulu series Castle Rock. In this episode, we talk about the second half of the season (episodes 6-10) of the spooky, different, incredible and sometimes confounding show.

Is it a “schisma” or a “schism?” What timeline is “real?” Is Castle Rock a “thinny.” Deane and Margo dig deep and try to find the answers ourselves.

You can listen to this episode by using the link below.

In this special Stephen King bonus episode Margo & Deana discuss:

  • The multiple Stephen King “Easter Eggs” we found throughout the series
  • The work of the incredible cast including Sissy Spacek, Melanie Lynskey, Andre Holland, Bill Skarsgard and Scott Glenn.
  • Our own theories about “The Kid” and the timeline he lives in
  • The meaning of the “Crimson King” and how it is represented in the TV series
  • Plus our individual assessments on what we love (and didn’t really love) about this first season.

Book Vs Movie Podcast (Replay Ep)

The Outsiders

The 1967 classic YA novel Vs. the 1983 cult movie (vs. the “Director’s Version”)

 

The Margos are back and they are ready to rumble! This was actually one of the more popular episodes back in our first season but we knew we could make it sound so much better so here’s to another REDO ep!

In 1967, 17-year old S.E. Hinton published her first novel, The Outsiders which became one of the first YA novels that was a hit with both teachers and students. Susie (as she prefers to be called if you know her) wrote the novel based on experience living on the rough side of the tracks in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Her improbable rise to the top of the YA novel heap is one of publishing’s more interesting stories and the Outsiders still sells almost 500,000 copies per year!

The 1983 film directed by Francis Ford Coppola is one of the signature films for a whole generation of tweens in the 80s. Everything in this lush production is discussed in this episode from the amazing cast to the cinematography and the rather unfortunate Stevie Wonder theme song.

In this episode the Margo “Stay Gold” as they discuss :

  • S.E. Hinton’s backstory and how she remains true to her roots to this day.
  • The main differences between the novel and film
  • How the cast was chosen and Coppola's rehearsal process
  • Behind the scenes trivia and gossip
  • What the Margos really think about the theme song
  • S.E. Hinton’s cameo as a nurse
  • The different versions of the film available (Coppola added 22 minutes of extra scenes and added 60s music to the score in the updated DVD version)

Clips Featured:

  • S.E. Hinton intro to her audiobook
  • The Outsiders trailer  
  • Ponyboy chased around Tulsa
  • Dallas (Matt Dylan) flirts with Cherry (Diane Lane)

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 a reflection of our years of fondness for the material and how far we have come along as podcasters. The 1969 novel by Puzo is a real treat to discuss and who doesn’t love talking about Marlon Brando and Al  Pacino? You can listen to the episode in the link below.

In this ep the Margos discuss :

  • The backstory of author Mario Puzo and why he felt compelled to tell the story about a mafia family even though he had no expertise on the subject.
  • The many, many ways the book is different from the two movies it is based on.
  • Why Francis Ford Coppola has such a complicated history with these films.
  • The cast of the movie including Al Pacino, Marlon Brando, James Caan, Robert DeNiro, Talia Shire, Robert Duvall and Diane Keaton.
  • Our favorite scenes from both films
  • Plus, movie trivia and more!

Clips Featured:

  • Author Mario Puzo & Screenwriter Francis Ford Coppola talk about The Godfather script
  • The Godfather  trailer
  • Don Corleone (Marlon Brando) making deals on his daughter’s wedding day
  • Moe Green (Alex Rocco) with Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) and Fredo Corleone (John Cazale)
  • Outro Music “Theme to the Godfather” Carmine Coppola
