The Dark Tower

It’s a tradition that I see a movie before, on the day or after my birthday. This year’s movie choice is “The Dark Tower”.

I started reading the book. I’ve read a few of Stephen King books. I’m a fan of Idris Elba. So, this should be a good movie?

I felt that they didn’t explain how the “Man in Black” came to be. I understand that there are 7 books in the series and it seemed that they fast forward things in the movie.

The special effects were good but not “awesome”. I liked the movie. As I was watching Idris on the screen, I kept thinking to myself…he would make a great James Bond. =]

By the way, there was only 5 of us on a Thursday, 2:45 pm showing.
