The Dark Tower
8 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I'm shocked that The Dark Tower doesn't even have an IMAX screening, which is a shame. But as much as Sony as concern, I felt that The Dark Tower should've been a big deal since it was in development for over 10 years. Don't get me wrong, Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey actually did a stellar job delivering top-notch performances. But sadly, this is perhaps one of the weakest Stephen King movies of all time. Judging its book by its cover, The Dark Tower isn't exactly how you always wanted as a summer blockbuster movie. It tries to hang on for it's dear life. I haven't even read the book series (even though the story revolves the tale of The Gunslingers), so hopefully I might check it out cause I have Audible. Yeah, the movie is far from great if only they get the bloody source material right. Despite it's great premise, strong characters, and a great tale of mythology in a post-apocalyptic setting, the worst part bout this movie is the fucking runtime of 95 minutes of slow-paced action and a confusing story. When I first heard about it, I was like "WHATTTTTTTTT??????? 95 minutes?" Can't this movie just run for 2 1/2 hours? And what's up with this whole "Man In Black" character? More like Men In Black 4 to me!

Bottom line: Great cast just can't sell a movie that tries to balance from the gritty to the somewhat cheesy, I will see The Dark Tower if only I'd prefer a rental.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter
14 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Even though it's not quite as better than Retribution, but after 15 years of chaotic action-filled kill-fest full with hordes of zombies (Oh, and Albert Wesker), Alice's story have concluded to this very end. The Final Chapter is perhaps one of my favorite RE movies since Afterlife, I'm so sad it has to end this way now that the franchise reaches $1 billion worldwide (despite losing the #1 spot to Split and that mediocre Dog's Purpose). I don't know what's in the future of the Resident Evil movie universe. Oh god, Sony should not reboot the series without Milla Jovovich coming back. Looking forward to good horror movies coming out in 2017.
