Finally got around to watching this. I wasn't expecting much, but it was even worse than that.

I would go as far as saying it was ok, but doesn't do a service to the books.

I saw somewhere that a TV series had been green lit. But I can't find it on line anywhere now, so it was probably some sort of shitty fake clack bait article

Ok, I did find some news on the TV series. Looks slightly more promissing than the movie:

I get that it was supposed to be a reimagining or what ever, so wasn’t going to follow the books word for word, but when your alternative story makes 6/7 books and 2/4 major character redundant, what’s the fucking point?

Not holding my breath for a good tv adaption

Agreed. Although the best way to watch it without it sucking too much, is to view it as a book VIII. That way you can see it from the perspective that it's not destroying the other 7 books. You have to have read the whole series though, so it kind of limits who should watch the movie.

If you interpret it as the next cycle of Rolands Quest, then it completely removes the ka-tet and all the meaning and symbolism that went with that


Like LOL, jus jokes, Eddy and Susana were losers

It does end with an opening for another movie though. Not that there will be one in that continuity.

"Are you done writing Dark Tower books?
I'm never done with The Dark Tower. The thing about The Dark Tower is that those books were never edited, so I look at them as first drafts. And by the time I got to the fifth or sixth book, I'm thinking to myself, "This is really all one novel." It drives me crazy. The thing is to try to find the time to rewrite them. There's a missing element – a big battle at a place called Jericho Hill. And that whole thing should be written, and I've thought about it several times, and I don't know how to get into it."
