In this episode we break down Slumdog Millionaire, the 2009 Best picture winner, and the novel the inspired it, Q&A! We'll walk the tight rope of discussing the slight, yet important differences between these two tales, including how the murder crazed protaganist of the novel became the subdued lead of the film.
On this special episode we sit down with J.D. Barker, author of Forsaken, The Fourth Monkey, and the upcoming Dracula prequel Dracul. J.D. tells us what it's like to sell your adaptation rights along with his writing method, how Stephen King let him borrow a character for Forsaken, and how he even solved a real-life murder.
This episode we discuss the graphic novel Blue is the Warmest Color and the film adaptation that made a big impact at Cannes, for better or for worse. Grab a glass of wine and settle in for our discussion on the love story that manages to be tragic in two different ways.
This episode we discuss a notoriously dissapointing film adaption and the brilliant source material it attempted to translate. Plus, the return of one of our least favorite characters, the Manic Pixie Dream Girl!
Food, romance, and magic collide in this Mexican novel by Laura Esquivel and its extremely faithful movie adaptation directed by Alfonso Arau. We'll discuss all of the sexy encounters, the expansive story and whether or not the lead character is actually a murderer.
We finally cover our first graphic novel adaptation with Bryan Lee O'Malley's 6 book Scott Pilgrim series, and the 2010 Edgar Wright film addaptation. Get your coins ready to continue!
