The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Dark Tower: The Gunslinger Born [Vol. 1]

Dark Tower: The Gunslinger Born

Writers: Peter David, Robin Furth
Artists: Jae Lee

After passing the test to become a Gunslinger, a young Roland and his two friends, Cuthbert and Alain, are sent to a far off colony by their fathers. Once there Roland falls in love a girl named Susan and find much corruption against the Guild. The ka-tet enter a battle with supporters of Marten the Good, a henchmen of the Crimson King.

My Take:
The Dark Tower series by Stephen King is my all time favorite series of books. I was gitty with excitement upon hearing about a graphic novel based around the young Roland. This first volume covers the same backstory from Wizard and Glass, but it glosses over the key points from the novel and fills in even more of the story. It's a great first step in the battle between Roland and the Man In Black and I anticipate the other volumes.

Rating: So Good.
