Roald Dahl is one of the bestselling children’s authors of all time, but how does this middle grade classic hold up when adapted by Henry Selick? In episode 225, James & Luke explore what scenes stayed with them most over the years and which did not, including a traumatic rhinoceros, an odd mecha-shark, some misguided live-action sequences, Randy Newman's music, and a couple of potentially problematic aunts. They finish by casting their votes for which version did it best: the book or the movie!
