Category Archives: Versus Machine – A Comparison of Great Things

The Versus Machine takes on two works of art, one source material and one adaptation, and processes it through to discover the differences and similarities of the two. Whether those differences are good or bad is up to you!

Skipping Christmas – (The 2001 Book) VERSUS Christmas With The Kranks – (The 2004 Movie)



The Versus Machine takes aim at a modern holiday “classic” just for YOU! We’re in for a pulse-pounding, suspense thrill ride with John Grisham (yep, THAT John Grisham) and his yuletide comedy novel going up against the film adaptation starring Tim Allen (yep, THAT Tim Allen)! The book has been pulled off the shelf and we’ve plucked the DVD off the rack! It’s Skipping Christmas (The 2001 Book) VERSUS Christmas With The Kranks (The 2004 Movie)!

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)!

What could be more disturbing than reading through Stephen King’s “The Shining?” Well, how about a viewing of Stanley Kubrick’s “The Shining?” Well – we’ve got that beat. How about an Axe Murderer, and a Sorcerer, COMPARING “The Shining” (The Book) & “The Shining” (The Movie)? That’s what we’ve got and it’s not just a reminiscence in tremendous horror, it’s a wonderfully educational experience that delivers perspective on two great classics!

Watchmen (The Graphic Novel) VERSUS Watchmen (The 2009 Movie)



Graphic novels and graphic novel movies have been a staple of American culture since the golden age of comics. They have steadily become the most interesting and hotly debated of cinematic exploits. To talk about a time when movies made us feel like we knew superheroes is to talk about a time when cinema ruled the world. But in terms of graphic novels, none are more highly revered than that of Alan Moore. Of all Moore’s work, his foray into the nuclear-driven world of “Watchmen” has so many topics for discussion, let alone comparison. Once called “unfilmable” by the author himself, this novel deals with so many topics that it is rough to even summarize. But though “unfilmable,” “300” director Zack Snyder has dared to conquer such a thing in his 2009 adaptation. We at the Versus Machine Podcast feel Snyder got some of the essence of purpose and characters, but he missed the biggest points. Unfortunately, this leaves us wanting in a way that may be hard to conquer for any fan.

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.
