All the Books Show: Episode 228 – 2020 Page to Screen Adaptations

On this episode of the All the Books Show, we check out the page to screen adaptations coming in 2020!

I gotta say, so far, with only what we know now, it looks like a week year. Nic keeps asking me if I’m exciting and, aside from worrying he’s losing his memory at an exponential rate, I keep telling him there’s nothing I’m really jumping up and down to see. Wonder Woman 1984 is it, but I’ve been tricked by awesome trailers before (heres looking at you Godzilla: King of Monsters).

All the Books Show: Episode 226 – Christmas Book Club II

In this episode of the All the Books Show, we return to the horrible concept of a holiday book club.

All I asked for was a book about a horse. Why I was given a soul crushing novella about a little girl who can’t afford mittens is beyond me. Nic get’s a book about a horned up firefighter and Beau gets southern ghosts. Mine is a book about a girl digging up dead grass for a pony that will never come.

All the Books Show: Episode 225 – Interview with Alan Dean Foster

In this episode of the All the Books Show, we interview author Alan Dean Foster!

As prolific at they come, Foster has written many original stories, such as Icerigger. And, of course, if you’ve read a movie novelization, there’s a good chance you’ve read Alan Dean Foster.

We talk to him about his early work, about Splinter of the Mind’s Eye, his Star Trek work, his many other novelizations and works and what’s next.

Previously on X-Men: X-Men Origins: Wolverine

On this episode of Previously on X-Men, Eric and Hilary re-watch X-Men Origins: Wolverine. A movie that was meant to lead to a whole bunch of solo X-Men films. This did not happen.

We talk about the 2007-2008 Writer’s Strike and it’s affect on the film, the new cast, the new prequel timeline, whether Wolverine’s first adventure will be his last and all the things the movie does right (ha!) and the things the movie does wrong (so many). Weirdly, it’s our longest episode yet.
