Able to cross dimensions to wreck havoc on other worlds, evil sorcerer Randall Flagg has tried to gain control of an Earth ravaged by an apocalyptic plague in The Stand and tried to destroy The Dark Tower on Mid-World under the alias Walter O’Dim.
This week on the podcast, Zach, Chris and Joe talk about the many incarnations of Two-Face, the enduring legacy of Deadwood, Steven Seagal saving the environment, the terrible simplification of The Dark Tower, Pickle Rick, Cable, Disney vs Netflix and much more.
The Dark Tower series is Stephen King’s magnum opus but unlike the unique and complex story told in the eight novels, the movie version strips everything to the bone for an incredibly generic “stop the end of the world” action movie.
The Dark Tower took the top spot at the box office but it was a fairly low opening during the slowest weekend of the entire summer.
Two of the upcoming live action Disney reboots have their villains, Vin Diesel is bringing back Miami Vice, Ian McShane joins Hellboy, Jungle Cruise has it’s director and much more in this week’s News Shotgun.
A trashy Halle Berry action movie, an apparently disastrous adaptation of Stephen King’s epic and a critically acclaimed historical drama are all out this weekend.
