Book vs Movie

Cold Mountain Book vs Movie

Cold Mountain is an award winning book and movie telling the story of Inman as he returns home. Both book and movie are so critically acclaimed, but in the end, which is the better of the two?

The Tender Bar Book vs Movie

The new George Clooney movie starring Ben Affleck is based on the memoir about a boy who is raised by a bar. The movie makes some big changes to this heartfelt story. But do those changes do justice to the real events?

The Snowman Book vs Movie

The popular Harry Hole detective novel by Norwegian Jo Nesbo was made into a notoriously bad movie starring Michael Fassbender. Today I discuss the changes that were made to the script, some of the logistical reasons behind the failure of the movie, and what I thought of this winter murder mystery.

The Lost World: Jurassic Park Book vs Movie

The sequel to Jurassic Park was a highly anticipated book and movie. Here, I not only talk about how The Lost World book and movie compare, but I also couldn’t help comparing it to the first Jurassic Park as well.

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. I talk about the differences that were made, as well as talking about why I love both book and movie for their separate strengths.

The Revenant Book vs Movie

The Revenant is based on a true story of Hugh Glass, but both book and movie took liberties with the story seeing as little of the truth is known. Which version of this incredible event is the best? And find out some huge differences between book and movie.

A Christmas Carol Book vs Movie (1984)

Charles Dicken’s A Christmas Carol is one of the most well known Christmas stories of all time. It has been adapted time and time again; but today I will be comparing it with the 1984 version starring George C. Scott. Hear how the two compare!

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? This is a great adaptation, but there are some changes to be talked about. I also analyze the characters and the message of this great story.

Little Women Book vs Movie (2019)

Little Women is a literary classic that has been adapted many times. Here, we talk about how the book compares with the latest movie from 2019 directed by Greta Gerwig.

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 stars Oprah Winfrey and Danny Glover in the lead roles. 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.
