Zombie Take-Out Episode 66: Based on a drum solo by John Bonham

Moby Dick Scotto and Uncle John discuss a movie that claims to be an adaptation of a literary classic, but fails in so many ways. This week on Zombie Take-Out it's 2010 Moby Dick. Did the writer of the screenplay even bother to read the book? Is a truly faithful adaptation of the book even possible? Does the doctrine of Loose-Fish apply to this movie? If only Melville knew how unintentionally funny his book would turn out to be.

Scotto's Rating
2.5 brains
Uncle John's Rating

I read Moby Dick back in high school. I could never imagine that book being made into a movie. So it's no wonder the movie tanked. LOL Why didn't you say spoiler alert. John knew there was no way in hell anyone would want to see this movie. Well I guess the nimrods that made this movie had no clue about what the hell they were doing. I gather this will be another movie to scratch off my want to see list. I agree w/John. I really can't see the original book being made into a movie. Moby Dick vs. Sharktopus might actually be entertaining in the fact that it'll be so bad, horribly bad, that you'll laugh your ass off. The book isn't meant to be funny. But hey entertainment is entertainment. As always, great podcast guys. I look forward to next week. I like the movie Deep Blue Sea.
