About This Show
The Pavement Pounders discuss adapted science fiction, generally well-known films derived from written works. They read the book, watch the movie, watch remakes, reboots, re-adaptations, and give it all a good mulling over.

Following up on a suggestion from John Hagmann, the Pavement Pounders discuss Kazuo Ishiguro’s 2005 novel Never Let Me Go and its 2008 film adaptation, as well as Michael Bay’s The Island, which plays in a similar sandbox, only with more explosions and massive vehicular destruction.
Thanks to John for reaching out and suggesting a topic, even if Colin didn’t enjoy it.
