Of Mice and Men – (The Book) VERSUS Of Mice and Men – (The 1992 Movie)



The American Dream is by far the most wonderful and enlightening ideal of our world. An idea born from nothing more than a dedication to ourselves, it is one that has more incarnations than almost any in our world. The idea that one person can be born from nothing and make something meaningful and important of himself is one that is so universally enriching that it is beyond reproach. And while many authors have tackled the American Dream on the American Farm in literature, no one is a match for John Steinbeck’s classic tales. In particular, the tale of “Of Mice and Men” shows the allure of the American Dream. And in terms of adaptation, we at the Versus Machine Podcast find that the 1992 Gary Sinise and John Malkovich version of this classic tale is by far the best to run through our machine.

Cycle Of The Werewolf (The Novella) Versus Silver Bullet (The Film)



Stephen King has a body of work that is ripe for adaptation. Over the decades many of his short stories and novels have been adapted into everything from feature films, television miniseries and even comic books. Depending on their faithfulness to the source material, those adaptations run the gauntlet of being surprisingly good to painfully bad. But what about those adaptations penned by the man himself? There are only a few examples of King being in charge of transferring his work from one medium to another and we here at the Versus Machine are taking advantage of that! Get ready for Cycle Of The Werewolf (the 1983 novella) VERSUS Silver Bullet (the 1985 film)!
