Dark Tower for Dummies

How do you distill a massive eight-novel series (often referred to as writer Stephen King's magnum opus) in to a film? The question has been raised before, with rumors about a series of movies, a TV series and more - only to fall apart. But here we are, 2017 finally brings us the long-awaited adaptation - but I can say with certainty that this is not the film I wanted.

The biggest problem with The Dark Tower is not the casting - Idris Elba gives off a great vibe as our Gunslinger, Roland while Matthew McConaughey (who I was worried about) actually plays menacing rather well, though I can't help but imagine him as a super evil version of that guy in all the Lincoln commercials and young Tom Taylor is spot-on as the psychic boy with the "Shine" Jake Chambers. No, casting is no...
