OK, first off: I apologize. This post is gonna be the first in a while (as per usual standard, eh?), and I am going to use it to bitch and whine.

Having read the entire Dark Tower series by genius author Stephen King, I was really looking forward to watching the relatively new movie of the same name, starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey (yes, I had to look up the name to get the spelling right). Also a short appearance by Dennis Haysbert, whom for some reason I always mistake for Denzel Washington - no matter, Haysbert is a good actor too.

Anyhow, with an amazing novel/series at its back and what I'd say is an above average cast, one would expect a good movie, right?...
