This Film is Lit

By Bryan and Katie

On _This Film is Lit_ we finally settle the score on one simple question… Is the book really better than the movie? Bryan has a film degree. He watches the movie but doesn't read the book. Katie has two English degrees, so she does things the right way and reads the book before we watch the movie. Prepare to be wowed by our expertise and charm as we dissect all of your favorite film adaptations and decide whether the silver-screen or the written word did it better. Turn it up, settle in, and get ready for spoilers because This Film is Lit.
