    The Dark Tower

    ½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Oh, this is a tough one. I started reading "The Dark Tower" novels at the age of 16, so for 30 years I had wanted so much to see an adaptation of these incredible stories on the big screen. The world Stephen King created is so rich and the characters feel like real people, even when they outlandish and strange.

    I've been putting off writing my review of "Rogue One" hoping that over time, my feelings for the film would have improved. Unfortunately, the more I have thought about it, the less impressed I am with the film.

    The Devil's Rock

    ★★★½

    Being a kiwi, I love to see our industry doing well and I really enjoyed this. Its a good story, well acted and directed (good job Paul).
    It is very atmospheric with a great location and looks great. The effects are good, considering the budget and its great to see the use of physical over digital.

    So, overall, a good old fashioned horror film with some really nice touches and some fun references to other films and literature.
