Dark Tower sequel

As deep into the Stephen King renaissance as we are now, it’s easy to gloss over the little blip over the summer that was The Dark Tower.

Highly anticipated by King fans and Idris Elba fans alike, The Dark Tower opened to meager box office returns and even worse movie reviews. Trouble had been brewing long before it was released in theaters — Nikolaj Arcel‘s adaptation of the series that King has called his “magnum opus” had a slim 95 minute run time — and fans were skeptical over whether the incredibly dense, decade-spanning novels could be condensed into one movie. Turns out they were right. But that doesn’t stop Elba from keeping his hopes up for a sequel.

flatliners trailer

Like any year, 2017 has had some truly excellent films, and then it’s also had some stinkers. As we approach the end of the year and enter awards season, get ready for more excellent films. For now, though, here come the summer runoffs – the films studios had no real faith in and dumped at the dead-end of September. Films like the Flatliners remake, which is now sitting at an uncomfortable 0% on Rotten Tomatoes, as the folks at MovieFone were kind enough to point out. Read more about the Flatliners negative reviews below.

why the dark tower failed

We’re in a new age of Stephen King adaptations, with new and upcoming films like ItGerald’s Game, and 1922 winning over critics and audiences alike. But, like King’s own catalogue, there are plenty of stinkers.

The Dark Tower was the long-awaited adaptation of King’s magnum opus, the multiverse-spanning sci-fi series of the same name. And it tanked. Despite the many years The Dark Tower spent in development, fans got a choppy, chopped-up adaptation of the book series, causing the film to barely break even at the box office and to attain a meager 16% Rotten Tomatoes rating. And though King was heavily invested in the success of this adaptation, the author revealed why The Dark Tower failed.

Ghostbusters Extended Cut

It’s kind of amazing that Mike Stoklasa‘s creation of RedLetterMedia and the character of Harry S. Plinkett has lasted so long after first finding viral fame for a seven-part takedown of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace back in 2009. But the internet is full of plenty of wackier things, and despite the fact that this character is supremely annoying to listen to, his video reviews do make plenty of valid points, even if they are combined with some really lame attempts at humor.

While Star Wars has become a prime target for Harry S. Plinkett, every now and then he turns his attention to a movie that garnered a lot of attention from passionate fans and viewers. The Ghostbusters reboot from 2016 (or Ghostbusters: Answer the Call as it’s more officially titled) was certainly one of those movies, and even though it’s been over a year since it was released and most of us have moved on, Harry S. Plinkett has a one-hour takedown and breakdown of the film directed by Paul Feig. Read More »

Sixth Scale Ghostbusters Ecto-1

Almost a year ago, you might remember we called attention to a new series of sixth scale Ghostbusters figures from a company called Blitzway. They’re some of the most amazing figures every created based on the paranormal investigators played by Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson, complete with the most accurate likenesses of each of the actors. Now they get their own ride to cruise around in too.

Blitzway is following up their collectible figure line with a sixth scale Ecto-1. That’s right, the company has created an Ecto-1 collectible vehicle that is big enough to fit all four of the sixth scale figures comfortably, including a screen accurate area in the back of the customized, vintage ambulance to hold their proton packs.

Check out the incredible sixth scale Ghostbusters Ecto-1 below and see how amazing this thing really is. Read More »
