The Dark Tower Is Getting Toppled By Critics! See The Vicious Review Roundup!

We didn't expect The Dark Tower to be Shakespeare (or even Captain America), but one of the worst reviewed movies of the year?? Yep, as of this writing the movie sits at a sad 16% on Rotten Tomatoes, something that probably shouldn't be too much of a surprise given reviews were embargoed until the day it [...] We didn't expect The Dark Tower to be Shakespeare (or even Captain America), but one of the worst reviewed movies of the year?? Yep, as of this writing the movie sits at a sad 16% on Rotten Tomatoes, something that probably shouldn't be too much of a surprise given reviews were embargoed until the day it came out. But even the kind reviews are so half-hearted, it sounds like the Stephen King adaptation is a movie for NO ONE. Related: The Emoji Movie Is An Appalling Pile Of 💩! The saddest part is, the books have been coming out for decades, and an adaptation has been in some form of development for about 15 years. And after all that time... eesh. Too bad for Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey, too. Because they sure are doing their part being adorable to sell it! Ch-ch-check out the TERRIBLE responses in our review roundup (below): Dan Callahan, The Wrap: "The 95-minute culmination of years-long efforts to bring The Dark Tower to the big screen is a complete disaster, a limp, barely coherent shell of a movie." Kate Erbland, indieWire: "King's Dark Tower universe is rich with cultural reference points and is always totally unpredictable, but in cutting it down to consolidate its highlights, The Dark Tower can't even shoot the most necessary bullets straight." Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic: "The Dark Tower is a near-total whiff, a mess of a movie that took forever to get made and by the look of things should have taken about twice that long." Darren Franich, Entertainment Weekly: "Bad dialogue, lame plot, fine. The bigger issue: How could a film with Elba and McConaughey have so little swagger?" Stephanie Zacharek, TIME: "It could use more magic, more dread, a more staggering sense of wonder. It's wholly inoffensive, but it's unmemorable too. This is a fantasy that runs like a business." John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter: "Heaven knows, the books offer more invention than could fit in one feature film, but in their effort to introduce newcomers to this world, the filmmakers make the saga's contents look not archetypal but generic and cobbled together." Scott Mendelson, Forbes: "Even without having read the books, I can only imagine the outrage and frustration that will be felt by fans of the source material... I enjoyed it on its own merits, but I imagine fans of the books are going to be horrified, and not in the right way." Owen Glieberman, Variety: "It's a highly competent and watchable paranoid metaphysical video game that doesn't overstay its welcome, includes some luridly entertaining visual effects, and -- it has to be said -- summons an emotional impact of close to zero." Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger: "Where's the story? As in – any of the story. We're given no sense of either of the two characters – just told they're locked in eternal, infernal battle, with our cosmic cowboy dedicated to stopping the villain from bringing on a demonic apocalypse... This isn't ‘The Dark Tower.' This is a small, sad pile of rubble – the foundation to a franchise you can only hope is never built." Brian Truitt, USA Today: "So much potential in terms of star power and source material goes to waste simply because it seems like the filmmakers couldn't figure out what movie to make. ‘Dark Tower' tosses out a lot of plot threads that never go anywhere and even the ending is rushed, like somebody forgot to study for an essay test and then has to B.S. their way out of a failing grade." Mike Ryan, Uproxx: "‘The Dark Tower' is so astoundingly awful that when you leave the theater you'll likely be less mad you wasted your time than flabbergasted that something like this could a) happen and b) be released as something that, theoretically, is going to launch a multi-platform franchise. ‘The Dark Tower' has been in production for around ten years in some form or another. This final product reminds me a lot of the GOP healthcare plan: You've had all this time and THIS is what you come up with? I can already picture John McCain strolling into a theater this weekend, giving a dramatic thumbs down, killing ‘The Dark Tower' forever." The Dark Tower hits theaters on Friday, with Thursday preview showings tonight. You know, if you still have to see for yourself. [Image via Sony Pictures.].....»»

Protestors Flock To Trump Tower To Denounce Donald Trump"s Response To Charlottesville Attack!

The people want change, and they want it NOW! As we reported, on Monday, Donald Trump finally denounced the Charlottesville attack caused by "KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups," two days after protestor Heather Heyer was struck and killed by a car.

As we reported, on Monday, Donald Trump finally denounced the Charlottesville attack caused by "KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups," two days after protestor Heather Heyer was struck and killed by a car. While the President claims he condemns the "egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence" that "has no place in America," many believe his response is too little, too late! Related: Two Virginia State Troopers Killed Monitoring Unrest Late Monday, protestors flocked to Trump Tower to decry both the businessman and his response to this past weekend's violence in Virginia. The 71-year-old -- who was on a working vacation at his golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey -- is scheduled to travel to Washington, D.C. and then to New York City Monday night where he will be greeted by thousands of marchers. At least three separate rallies were held outside the Midtown building, where demonstrators held signs that read "No Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA" and "Not my president." To add insult to injury, art gallery owner John Post Lee commissioned the construction of an inflatable "Trump Rat" blocks away from Trump Tower. With the President scheduled to return to Midtown today, a giant inflatable #TrumpRat has arrived at 59th and 5th. pic.twitter.com/HQNRDNuJb7 — Scott Heins (@scottheins) August 14, 2017 See all the reactions and pics from Twitter (below)!
