If you’re making a movie based on a book, how far can you reasonably stray from the source material and expect fans to enjoy it? Disney’s Artemis Fowl (2020) attempts to answer that question for Russ and Jared in this week’s episode. Spoilers: this movie starring Ferdia Shaw, Josh Gad, Dame Judi Dench, and Lara McDonnell has nothing to do with the book series of Jared’s childhood. Join the guys on their adventure to the land of the fairies, and stay tuned for part 2 on Thursday!

Jared marketizes software during the week and transforms into a cinephilic podcaster on the weekends.
