Episode 283: Movies That Were Better Than the Book

Chris McBrien and Derek Myers each run down their personal top 5 list of movies that they think were better than the book the film was based on. There seems to be a general feeling that the book is almost always better than the movie but the guys challenge this notion with 5 films that rise above the source material.

For the trivia segment of the show, Chris has Derek play a game of ‘Pick the Flick’. Chris gives Derek the year and the synopsis, Derek has to guess the title of the movie (all of the movies are based on a book as source material).
