Great podcast

This is just what I wanted. I love movie novelisations, and there are often so many interesting differences between the books and movies. Pax does a great job of highlighting all these points in a very succinct and fun way. A nice and short solo podcast for a niche audience. Perfect.

Another home run from Paxton Holley

Pax has contributed to several fantastic podcasts already, including Nerd Lunch, Cult Film Club and Hellbent for Letterbox, and this one adds to that awesome list. If you're a fan of movies and/or a fan of books then definitely check it out. Great insights and observations into how movie novelisations often differed from the final theatrical movie.
