Some of the Roald Dahl books! Willy Wonka and the Chocolate factory, as well as Charlie and the Chocolate factory, Matilda, James and the Giant Peach, etc. I read all of those books. I have read The Witches, but have not seen the movie version, because I glanced at the scene where the kid turns into a mouse... it's terrifying! While the book had illustrations by Quentin Blake, which wasn't that terrifying, the move version managed to make it terrifying looking! But the scariest part of the book is that they establish that the kid's turned into a mouse forever! And perhaps has the same lifespan as a mouse! YIKES! Now that's scary! At least he can talk... but STILL!

I know that there is one book and one movie that you should compare that we all know and love:
"Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH" and "The Secret of NIMH."
Please Jaimetud I beg of you to do this comparison. Oh yeah nice job on the Princess and the Frog comparison.

Good review; I'm one of those people who was unaware it was based off a book, I just thought it was based off the original folk tale period. As for a suggestion, could you compare Gaston Leroux's Phantom of the Opera to the 1989 horror film of the same name? I think it may be worth your time, especially when it comes to who plays Erik (the Phantom) in the film.

I think Disney should make a film like "The Princess and the Frog" again sometime in the future. I've been reading a book called "The Swan Kingdom," a retelling of The Wild Swans by Hans Christian Andersen, and so far, it seems decent. I've been reading it mainly because I would like to see disney make an adaptation of The Wild Swans based on this novel. They haven't made an adaptation of The Wild Swans yet, but hopefully, they will some time in the future.

Have you seen "Books vs. Movies" by bandgeek8408? You ought to try to get on Matt Guion's series. I have to say you did just as well as he did. Disney is currently focused on "The king of the elves", "The Snow Queen" and an untitled Mickey Mouse movie. And yes I know "The Snow Queen" is going to be called "Frozen". Also, I would suggest "Pirates of the Carribean; curse of the black pearl", "Beauty and the Beast", and Muppet adaptations.

This was fun
Ok my list of suggestions
Jurassic Park, the Lost world Doyle or Cricthon, the jungle book, Redwall, Gettysburg vs the Killer Angels. Sherlock Holmes? Dune? Robin Hood? Gone with the wind? Ben Hur. Tolkein books vs Bakshi Rankin Bass and Jackson?

I feel you should take some time to talk about Jurassic Park and the novel which it's based on by Michael Crichton. I have both the novel and the movie, which are both really good, but everybody talks so much about the movie that the book's practically been forgotten.

Can you compare and contrast the book and movie version of the Da Vinci code.
I have seen many pages to pictures before and on a scale of 1 to 10 on accuracy I would have to say it would be a 7 4/5
with Eragon being a 2

I didn't know that you watched books vs. movies. That's why you sent me the video!
Date And Time: 2011-10-02 01:19:13Comment:
I got your link to this video from your YouTube message you sent me, becasue you saw I was subbed to Matt. I usually never follow those links because they usually wind up being spam, but I love books vs movies reviews so much that I was hoping yours might be good enough to pass some time.
Boy did I underestimate you!
This review was fantastically done, I really love all your thoughts, humour, and insights. Not to mention, this was really well put together, your video skills are great. I'll definitely be checking back for further videos, and if you post these on YouTube I'd love to see these in my subscription box there, too.
As for suggestions - how about One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, pretty much any other Disney movie, Dracula, To Kill a Mockingbird, Jurassic Park, Harry Potter, The Shining, The Green Mile, Lord of the Flies, or Fahrenheit 451!

Great Category - I suggest Tresure Planet / Treasure Island. Rarely seen two versions which are so similiar and so different (and I don't mean the different setting) at the same time - and nevertheless both worth to know at it's own right.
Date And Time: 2011-09-26 13:52:24Comment:
I'd like to suggest "A Series Of Unfortunate Events" with the first three books. True, it deviates a lot from the book, but I think it would be interesting. Both have a lot of flaws.
Date And Time: 2011-09-15 16:32:54Comment:
I found this video very interesting, good job Jamietud! I'd like to suggest you do a "From Pages To Pictures" for "Inkheart" or "The Golden Compass" next and "The Secret Of Nimh" or "Shrek" or "How To Train Your Dragon" after that.

You have a great series going here! I must admit that i really liked this movie. More so for me was the fact that this was the return of traditional disney animation. Your comparisons with the movie and the book were spot on. With this and tangled Disney did say that they were done with the whole princess thing and we will never see a new princess movie...yeah right! All in all i look forward to seeing what you have next. oh yes the whole thing as to what ray the firefly, he was the one who guided the characters to mama odi.
Suggestions? well it would be interesting to do a Wizard of oz episode. Maybe a lord of the rings special and a comparison with Dragons of the Autumn Twilight.

The request thread has been updated. I should also inform everyone that all new requests are closed for now. If you want to vote on a suggestion that's already been made, feel free to do so, but I will still be approaching these at my own discretion, especially seeing as lately I've been getting a lot of other work.

Oh my gawd! I love this idea, man! Oh and the Gold Digger thing was GENIUS!
My suggestion? I say Shrek or How To Train Your Dragon. Never read ether of the original books. Just think it's a good idea.

Actually, the other time that both the prince and princess turned into frogs was in the spoof-sequel called "Return of the Frog Prince." Where the prince began to miss the days of being a frog and living the swamp; so he goes of searching for the witch that turned him into a frog in the original book.

Pan-Pizza: It's funny you should mention that. I spoke with the mom of the original kid I cast for that part and she mentioned that around that age range, kids were too old to talk about kid's stuff like that. Yet I distinctly recall having conversations with many such individuals in high school, so there you go.
Date And Time: 2011-08-07 03:03:02Comment:
I've had that kind of conversation in the beginning many times. You production values really blow my mind, feels like a documentary. I too love that they sort of mocked and satired the traditional Disney Princess with the blond one and telling Tiana she actually has to work hard.
Date And Time: 2011-08-06 22:55:16Comment:
Great video! I would love to see episodes about the Harry Potter series, The Black Cauldron, and Jurassic Park.

Do I-Robot, something Wicked This Way Comes, and Animal Farm. There were film adaptations of these.

great review. You should do Disney's "The Great Mouse Detective" and "The Secret of Nimh".

Good review, Jaimetud. Maybe you could do the Prydain Chronicles by Lloyd Alexander and its film adaptation, "The Black Cauldron". I'm not sure if you either read the books or seen the movie, but if you have done either one, or at least both, you could tell me what you think of them.
Date And Time: 2011-08-04 13:58:08Comment:
Awesome man. If I were tp suggest, then it'll be The Adventures of Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi to Disney's Pinocchio 1949.

Could you do a comparison on Disney and Filmation's Pinocchio and the Chronicles of Narnia Disney movies and BBC series!

I used to work in a library, and I remember having this book in the children's section. Never read it, though. I bawled my eyes out when Facilier squished Ray! Cool show, Jaimetud! PS, I would personally love you forever if you did a FPtP video on Disney's forgotten classic "The Great Mouse Detective" and Eve Titus' "Basil of Baker Street" stories, on which the movie was based. Also, AWESOME OPENING!!!!

Bloody Brilliant, James! Absolutely amazing.
This is genuinely one of the best online shows I've ever seen, with no faults whatsoever, and a running time that makes it possible for a TV release.
But if I may make a suggestion? You said you couldn't find imagery of some characters? Well, I could always help you there if you wish. Let me know what you want, and I'll illustrate something for you.
Good luck with the show. I hope you'll make this a major series.

Wow. You guys are amazing. Sorry it took so long for me to respond to all these comments, but I’ve just been through so much praise lately it’s hard for me to stomach it all. :-P. Don’t worry, all requests are being taken into account. But be warned, as I will prioritize some requests over others. I tend to lean towards doing stuff I more or less enjoy. CW93: Yes, “Big Fish” and “Roger Rabbit” are in the intro. They were based on books. As for comics, I can only promise graphic novels at this point. Neil and jayjkay1: I’ll take your requests into account as well, but since fairytales have so many different written adaptations and it’s hard to pinpoint one, I don’t know if I can consider those at this point. Andrew Shepard: I use Adobe Creative Suite CS5.5. Anyway, I have to go take a breather now and stomach all these new requests. Thank you guys so much for the positive comments and feel free to share this with your friends. We need to make this as big a hit as we can!

BTW What video editing and fottage capturing software do you use?
Date And Time: 2011-08-03 02:16:33Comment:
I would suggest you try comparing the book and film adaptations Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. That book got adapted into a film in the 1970s and then again in 2005 by Tim Burton
Date And Time: 2011-08-03 00:35:50Comment:
you should compare disney's Beauty and the Beast and the fairy tale.

First off great start can't wait for more. But i agree with gag reel. i think maybe you should compare lion king to hamlet as well.

Date And Time: 2011-08-02 22:24:04Comment:
Very good start to this series. I look forward to future installments. As for a suggestion... I hate to go with obvious choices, but here goes:
Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH to The Secret of NIMH
Rapunzel to Tangled
Hamlet to The Lion King (Probably the most interesting of these choices)
The Hunchback of Notre Dame to the Disney film of the same name (The other adaptations were too accurate for this)
As for my thoughts on the film, I still love it, but not nearly as much as I did the first time. The film lacks the subtlety past films gave us, with Tiana reminding us frequently during the first half that she's a role model. Also, I never thought I'd say this, but the movie needs more filler. Show us at least one clip showing how Tiana's mother takes her disappearance, movie! This movie gives us barely any reason to care about her parents while films like The Lion King did. The music also isn't 'real' jazz, and my dad, being a jazz expert, can back me up on this. I also found Naveen and Tiana's development just a tad rushed. I'm not even gonna go into how Facilier didn't get enough screentime.
Still, everything else makes it great in my eyes, just not perfect.

Solid debut. I actually do like your analysis on both forms of media with The Princess and the Frog and The Frog Princess.
It's well edited and your presentation is excellent so I look forward to future installments.

I like it. You shoud do more like "Alice in Wonderland"(you're put on whice moive),"Holes" by Louis Sachar,"Fahrenheit 451" by Ray Bradbury (My favorite book) and was the two chlp you use in the opping from "Big Fish" and "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" and are you planing to do comic book movies to or just novels?
Date And Time: 2011-08-02 20:51:34Comment:
Wow. This is very nicely and cleanly edited and performed. I like it. Very fresh compared to old vs. new and books vs. movies. BTW if you havn't seen books vs. movies, you should. You should keep up with your theme. I suggest you review shrek.
Date And Time: 2011-08-02 20:46:49Comment:
Great video! I've always enjoyed comparing a moive or TV series to its written counterpart, and I think you did a good job of analyzing this one. If you still want to go the disney route, I'd suggest comparing Bambi to Bambi: A Life in the Woods by Felix Salten, and Kipling's Jungle Books to the 1967 version. Also, I think comparing Harry Potter books (Prisoner of Azkaban and Deathly Hallows comes to mind to me)would be interesting.

How about you do the E. B. White books and their movies. Although it may be hard to do The Trumpet of the Swan because a lot of people hate the movie. I myself liked both very evenly with the book having a bit of a better story but the movie having the better girl friend for the swan. Aside from that the other two books(Stuart Little and Charlotte's Web) shouldn't be that hard to do.
