The Dark Tower

The Dark Tower

The Josh Chop: It’s never fair to compare a book to a film. Even to compare a screenplay to its final film would be to compare colors of paint in a tube to a final Michelangelo piece. It’s hard to say how this film compares to the novels because, I never read them. When going into this one, I kept an open mind that this film would be unlike other Stephen King novels made for the big screen. Stephen King is of course well known to write fiction that deals with the macabre and horrors only his mind can make up. While The Dark Tower gives us a reason to have nightmares at night, horror is not an overall theme of the film.

I really did enjoy it and would most likely watch it again to see if I could catch things I missed the first time around. My only wish with future Dark Tower films is that the Gunslinger show more emotion and that events be slowed down a bit. They really did fit a TON inside the hour and a half run time. Either way, I definitely think people should see The Dark Tower as it was a pretty decent story overall.

Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman

I never watched the original TV show “Wonder Woman.” Honestly I’m not that interested. The clips I’ve seen appear corny and hokey. I was only slightly hesitant wanting to review this film, because I didn’t want to be disappointed afterward like other DC films. I never followed the Wonder Woman character, but she’s always intrigued me. From what I’ve learned about her doing research about her character before I saw the film I was really pumped to see this film. All I’ve gotta say is: get ready to see the best super hero film you’ve seen in a long time!

Diana (who is never referred to as Wonder Woman) is perfectly cast in my opinion. Gal Gadot is gorgeous and both men and women will swoon by her on screen presence. All in all, I really feel like DC knocked this one out the park, and I really can’t wait to see Wonder Woman in action again!
