The Dark Tower 

 

Hopefully by now you are aware of the FFG Haul videos. The Dark Tower is something that was shown in the first FFG Haul video. Go here to see the FFG Haul videos. It took us ninety-five minutes to watch The Dark Tower on Blu-ray. I actually liked this movie more than I thought I would. I will warn you that The Dark Tower has some extremely controversial, and highly divisive things in it.

I am familiar with The Dark Tower from reading some graphic novels based on the same topic. I have not read the books. After all this is Steven King we are talking about. I can not think of one good movie I have seen based on one of his books. Since I know he is more into the macabre and morbid I was a bit concerned about The Dark Tower. Thankfully the scary moments are kept at a lower degree than I was expecting.

Holly Weird is at it again with their race change of major characters. The Dark Tower is guilty of that offensive, and will most likely be labeled as being racists for doing it. Personally I am sick and tired of Holly Weird always having to change things. Why can't they stay more true to the source material? They are so arrogant that they think they know better. That arrogance turns my stomach. It is one of the reasons I will not listen to these Holly Weird people on any social or political topics.

The issues families can have with The Dark Tower are violence, bad language, blood, magic, and more. There is this dark tower that protects multiple different Earths. There are portals that people can use to pass between the different Earth's. A powerful mage is trying to bring the tower down. Why? Outside of all these Earths are demons. These demons want to enter the Earths and kill everything.

There is high technology in The Dark Tower that is also very ancient. Idris Elba, and Matthew McConaughey headline The Dark Tower. Idris never felt like the right person for this character to me. Matthew McConaughey is another story. He does a masterful job with the man in black. There are a few cool action moments in The Dark Tower. The ending of The Dark Tower was a bit of a shock to me. I will not spoil it for you.

The bonus content found on the Blu-ray disc of The Dark Tower is Deleted Scenes, Last Time Around, The World Has Moved On, Stephen King Inspirations, A Look Through the Keyhole, Blooper Reel, The Man in Black, and The Gunslinger in Action. The bad language was not needed in The Dark Tower. It hurts the movie. The same goes for the extremely controversial, and highly divisive race change. The fantasy world of The Dark Tower caught my interest.
