This time around the hosts discuss the film Dark Places based on the novel by Gillian Flynn. They admire how accurate the plot was, but wonder why the characters seem to be more likable than in the book.
In this two-in-one episode, Dorin and Kendyl discuss the novel If I Stay by Gayle Forman and it’s film adaptation. After falling in love with all the characters in the novel, the duo is rather harsh on the movie’s characterization, but give it credit for resisting the urge to be overly sappy.
Nicole, Ryan and Kendyl hash out the differences between Kimberly Peirce’s film Carrie and the original novel, as well as the 1976 film. While enjoying the remake, the hosts wonder if it missed out on a few opportunities.
On episode #2, Kendyl and Jess are joined by coursemate Corey to discuss Martin Scorsese’s movie adaptation Hugo and how well the book translated to screen… and talk about Jude Law’s ability to play a sexy father.
