Pax reads the movie novelizations so you don't have to

I love this show. Paxton Holley of Nerd Lunch fame has always been a fan of movie novelizations. Now he has this show to tell us the differences between the movie and the novelization so we don't have to read it ourselves. He saves me from reading what can be so-so books to find the little extra nuggets that were cut out of the film. Pax could be considered a national treasure for movie and pop culture nuts.

A Movie From A Certain Point of View

I LOVE THIS PODCAST! I found this podcast and couldn't stop listening. I use to read movie novelizations as a kid. I loved how the novels built a deeper connection to the movie. I would love a review of the novels from the classic 80's television show called "V" and "V The Final Battle" by A.C. Crispen. This is what podcasting is all about. Take something you are passionate about and talk about it. Pax enjoys these novels and the movies and that makes the podcast fun! Listener for life!
