Say it ain’t so! Despite my review from last year, Rotten Tomatoes has given this movie only a 16% rating, meaning, it’s certified crappy. I won’t delete my previous review (below) because I don’t like to pretend that I never make mistakes. But I have to say, I’m pretty disappointed— I’ve been looking forward to this movie 😦
From April 2016:
I’ve been looking forward to this one. It’s coming out in 2017, but I just found out that Idris Elba is playing the gunslinger. Therefore, I am ready to rate it: Two thumbs up!
*Disclaimer- the thumbs that are “up” are my own, not Siskel’s or Ebert’s, although I’m pretty sure that if they were alive, they would agree with me. 8/4/2016—I was wrong on that: the guy from rogerebert.com called it “more forgettable than loathsome.” So, not the kind of compliment the filmmakers were hoping for, I assume.
