Pax reads the movie novelizations so you don't have to

By FragrantLime - May 05 2019
Read more
I love this show. Paxton Holley of Nerd Lunch fame has always been a fan of movie novelizations. Now he has this show to tell us the differences between the movie and the novelization so we don't have to read it ourselves. He saves me from reading what can be so-so books to find the little extra nuggets that were cut out of the film. Pax could be considered a national treasure for movie and pop culture nuts.

Great idea!
