The Dark Tower
Chris and Eric are joined by Crimson Son author Russ Linton to journey to Mid-World for a look at an adaptation ten years in the making The Dark Tower. The film stars Idris Elba as Roland Deschain and Matthew McConaughey as the Man in Black as Roland attempts to stop the oncoming darkness and save the Dark Tower. It's a lackluster, muddied affair that falls flat and hurts any chances of future adaptations of King's seminal piece.
