The Great Gatsby (The Book) VERSUS The Great Gatsby (The 2013 Movie)



In terms of the American Dream, it does not get better than F. Scott Fitzgerald. He unique vision of a time when climbing to the top meant knocking someone else down, he, more so than other of his time, understood that not everything was as it seemed. While all of his stories embody this image, none are more well-known that that of “The Great Gatsby.” His unique foray into love, lust, betrayal, and dreams is the epitome of a roaring ’20s masterpiece. We at the Versus Machine Podcast feel this book is wrought with excitement and action for a possible movie adaptation, and we can also see that Baz Luhrmann’s 2013 adaptation makes its mark. While arguably improving certain actions, it does not capture the essence of what is Fitzgerald’s classic tale. With such a far-gone adaptation, we start our machine.

Talk About Terrifying – You Got Your Zombie In My Peanut Butter!



There’s something frightening about trends. One day, it’s just a random blip on your social media news feed. The next day, everyone is dumping buckets of ice water on themselves while they try on flesh colored leggings and chewing on packets of laundry soap. Once a trend gets going, it’s almost impossible to stop. Much like a hoard of flesh craving zombies! Since 2004, with the release of the hit film Shaun of the Dead, the zombie trend has been growing. No longer are the living dead just for horror fans, these rotting corpses are on your televisions, in your reading materials and eating your neighbors! And just like asking a person if they know who Scooby-Doo or Mickey Mouse are, the average person can not only tell you WHAT a zombie is, but give you their (mostly horrible) impression of how one walks! As the mob of flesh eaters bang endlessly on your doors, 2GuysTalkingHorror is here to help navigate YOU through the good, the bad and the rotting when it comes to zombies in pop culture.
