The Shining Book vs Movie

Stephen King’s The Shining was adapted by the famous Stanley Kubrick starring Jack Nicholson. This movie is so famous and well loved, despite being so different from the book in a lot of ways.

Nightmare Alley Book vs Movie (2021)

Guillermo Del Toro directs the movie adaptation which stars Bradley Cooper and Cate Blanchett. How does it compare with the noir carnival book by William Lindsay Gresham?

Beloved Book vs Movie

Beloved is the Pulitzer prize winning novel by Toni Morrison. It’s about people that are haunted by their past-their past abuses as well as their own actions from the past.

The movie follows the book very closely, but there is still a lot to break down here as we discuss the differences between book and movie, and the deep symbolism in both.
