Adapting Stephen King’s 8-book series into a film couldn’t have been easy. In fact, the project, in various forms, has been in development by Hollywood for over a decade. So, then we have this, the first film that will (possibly) lead into a tv show and then more films taken from the book series, with Matthew McConaughey as The Dark Man and Idris Elba as Roland the Gunslinger. Good vs Evil. A kid from our world trapped between. If you saw the trailer and thought that Last Action Hero was the only movie this adaptation was cribbing from, oh man, just wait. So, while realizing no amount of telling hardcore fans anything will change the decision they’re going to make with their dollars, here’s the review featuring Chris, Sarah, George, JC, Patience and Scott.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
