Let the Right One In

Lise and Kolleen get all fangirly over Let the Right One In, written by John Ajvide Lindqvist and published in Sweden in 2004, translated into English and published in the United States in 2008. The book was made into a film in 2008, directed by Tomas Alfredson with the screenplay by John Ajvide Lindqvist. (DO NOT WATCH THE AMERICAN REMAKE.)

Kolleen’s so in love with this film that she has a tattoo of Eli the vampire!

We Need to Talk About Kevin

Lise and special guest Kolleen Carney Hoepfner talk about We Need to Talk About Kevin, written by Lionel Shriver and published in 2003, and made into the 2011 movie directed by Lynne Ramsay and written for the screen by Lynne Ramsay, Lionel Shriver and Rory Kinnear. 

And, for context on why Lise hated on Lionel Shriver, a piece in the Irish Times from this year.

The Two Towers

Today, Lise and Kevin take up where they left off when they looked at The Fellowship of the Rings, with The Two Towers, written by J. R. R. Tolkien and published in 1954, and made into the 2002 film directed by Peter Jackson and written by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Stephen Sinclair, and Peter Jackson.

And for some fun Two Towers-themed songs, please enjoy The Towers Are the Players and the epic Mashed Taters.
