Soooo just watched this...have to say not overly impressed 😟 Can't say I had high expectations to start with as they would have to be a miracle worker to actually depict many of Stephen kings writings to their full potential and create the connections/bonds you manifest through reading!! The actors/acting was good but I really feel that they have missed the mark here...I feel that it's been too polished for Hollywood and they've forgotten the face of their fathers 😉😩😂 Will see what the sequel brings I guess 😊 . . . #thedarktower #stephenking #book #booklover #booknerd #bookaholic #bookworm #bookgram #bookstagram #gunslinger #fantasy #movie #movies #sciencefiction #scifi #scififan #horror #horrors #horrormovies #horrorfan #horroraddict #horrorfilm #geek #geeklife #geekgirl

So, The Dark Tower is the latest Film Adaptation from the Stephen King novels. This stars Idris Elba, Matthew Mcconaughey, and Tom Taylor. It follows Jake Chambers (Taylor) and his dreams of another world. In that world is the Man in Black (Mcconaughey), a character descibed worse than the devil, trying to destroy "The Dark Tower". A device that holds the balance between worlds. Chambers and the Gunslinger (Elba) are the only ones to stop him. First off, I'm a fan of Stephen King adapted films. They're hit and miss, but the hits are big hits. But unfortunately this film is a bit forgettable. The first half is pretty slow, with underwhelming characters with poor development and an uninteresting plot that didn't really grab me. This will be adapted to a TV show, and perhaps it'll flesh out better. The second half kicks in and it's more interesting, but doesn't step up. I say it's fine. I'm a big fan of Elba and Mcconaughey, there character types were interesting, their performances were good, not their best, but there characters were touched upon and not fully fleshed out. The Man in Black was a cool character, but, unfortunately, wasn't memorable. I did enjoy the Gunslinger fight scenes, but there were so many cuts. In the end, The Dark Tower wasn't great, it wasn't bad, it just wasn't memorable, and the ending was a huge let down. I'll give The Dark Tower a C- #TheDarkTowerMovie #TheDarkTower #idriselba #matthewmcconaughey #stephenkingnovel #stephenking #moviereview

#Bibliophilebookpile Day 16 "Wax On, Wax Off" - Best mentor in a book... Brandy Alexandria (Queen Supreme) from "Invisible Monsters", Cort Andrus from "The Gunslinger", Haymitch Abernathy from "The Hunger Games". All of these characters were exceedingly fucked up in one way or another, and though they weren't the best mentors they made for pretty good mentors in their own unique ways. It just goes to show that you dont have to be perfect to help people change their lives or achieve their goals 😊 But you probably don't want to be as imperfect as these characters 😂 . . . #invisiblemonsters | #thedarktower | #thegunslinger | #thehungergames | #chuckpalahniuk | #stephenking | #suzannecollins | #authors | #books | #bookcollection | #mentors | #badexamples | #goodreads | #goodbooks | #variety | #booksofinstagram | #igreads | #instabooks #bookstagram | #igbooks | #doasisaynotasido | #waxonwaxoff |

Day 16: All for naught. Mr King I bring to you this sacrificial offering of virgin ears.

Finally saw #thedarktower tonight and I'm surprised that the response has been so negative. Realistically, what were ppl expecting? Its an epic book series condensed into one movie. Yes, they cherry picked character's from the books as the writers sought fit. They took a lot of creative license to make their own story. It wasn't great but it certainly didn't deserve the 17% given on rotten tomato.
