    I thought 1408 was going to be crap but it was pretty good so I'll say as much if that's the case here. But every time I look its something worse. First they pretty much admit that they're using the 'cycle' bit as an excuse to just do their own thing and barely follow the books. Then the trailers make it look like some superhero/Matrix combo . Then we find out it's about 90 minutes long. Finally they say it's PG-13. They keep on finding ways to sink lower.

    And what bothers me is I look at something like Mad Max: Fury Road, Logan, pretty much anything the Coen brothers have done lately or the American Gods series on Starz and it shows that something that at minimum is faithful to the spirit of King's work was in reach. We're not talking "Make the Silmarillion into a blockbuster hit". Even worse, Frank Darabont WANTED to do DT. The guy who took a short story about monsters invading a supermarket that would have been a Syfy original movie in anyone else's hands and turned it into something that people are still talking about today. And King turned him down. So at the end of the day if this is some disaster the blame is 100% on King's shoulders.

    My desire for sequels only continues to grow in intensity. Even if we aren't receiving the full play-by-play, we may yet see select scenes and/or characters close to their literary counterparts (Eddie Dean, Blaine the Mono, Lud, the Wolves and so forth).

    And, again, if this take on The Dark Tower is a hit, the odds of a straight(er) adaptation down the line only go UP thanks to instilled confidence.

    The entire Dark Tower OST has dropped on youtube. Have sifted through most of the tracks - these two are phenomenal:

    If manners maketh man, soundtracks maketh the movie. This is a heartening start!

    J/w what do you guys/gals think of Robert Carlyle as Walter? I just realized my main issue with Matt here is he's too grim. If you look at Carlyle as Rumplestiltskin in Once Upon a Time, that's more or less how I imagine Walter to be in 'The Gunslinger'. He even has the titter down pat.

    I like Carlyle and enjoyed the few times I saw him on Once Upon A Time (I don't watch it, but someone in the family used to so I saw some episodes). I think he'd do well in just about anything. Nice suggestion.

    These are phenomalea. The McC one looks to be inspired by his turn in True Detective.

    Could be illegal, though. Junkie XL has his own YouTube channel where his albums are streamed officially: https://www.youtube.com/user/junkiex...ort=dd&view=50

    I saw the trailer at the bottom cinema before Spider-man:Homecoming yesterday. Shouldn't be a surprise, this close to release, but it's nice to see it being advertised here in the UK. (I can't say if there have been trailers on the TV as my main exposure to TV is catchup.)
