Review: In A Valley of Violence

Dark Tower book Wizard and Glass to be turned into TV show alongside film

I'm excited for THE DARK TOWER movie like nobody's business. Everything I've seen so far looks so cool, from Idris Elba's Roland looking like a badass Steampunk Blade, Matthew McConaughey (or as I like to call him Matthew ctrl+c/ctrl+v) rocking it as Randall Flagg, and the whole fusion fantasy/Western vibe. While I have yet to read the books, everything I've...

I mean, it had pedigree both in front of the camera ( Anthony Hopkins , Ed Harris , Thandie Newton , James Marsden ) and behind (created by Jonathan Nolan and executive produced by J.J. Abrams ), but the idea didn't scream "need to watch". I am not opposed to remakes, and have...
