My Movie Review: The movie is such a cookie-cutter giving you a taste of unfulfilling promise! The Dark Tower is somewhat came from a precious material by Stephen King's series of books making one of the most anticipated movies but the greatness didn't translated towards the film. The fantasy is constructed properly putting you in new world yet the delivery too fast and short. Matthew McConaughey may not the best villain but it's nice to see him again in the big screen! Living in this age is hard more so satisfying audience maybe harder yet making film is hard too learn to appreciate the beauty of the graphics and the imagination built makes it a worth while:)
My Favorite Term: The Dark Tower (Series)
The Dark Tower is a series of eight books written by American author Stephen King that incorporates themes from multiple genres, including dark fantasy, science fantasy, horror, and Western. It describes a "gunslinger" and his quest toward a tower, the nature of which is both physical and metaphorical. The series, and its use of the Dark Tower, expands upon Stephen King's multiverse and in doing so, links together many of his other novels. King has described the series as his magnum opus. The series was inspired by the poem "Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came" by Robert Browning, whose full text was included in final volume appendix.
