What Film have you just watched? 2016+

There were X-wings during that battle but they were escorting the transports off the planet.

Even though it was heavily panned I decided to watch the Dark Tower as I've still been quite keen to see it although unfortunately the reviews are correct and it's a truly awful film. Films based on books often fail because it's difficult to take the amount of content in a book and put it into a film but Dark Tower is even worse as it tries to take the bulk of all eight books and fit them into a single film. Unsurprisingly it makes for a confusing mess of a film which races along making little sense and then it ends, the world of the dark tower is slowly built up along the books to gradually introduce the concepts of the different worlds, how the dark tower is the centre of them all, the beams that secure all these worlds etc. That said I liked the film as an illustration of various concepts, locations and people within the books which they've done a superb job with as I immediately recognised most of it.

It's just a shame they made such a mess of the rest of it and I really can't understand what they were thinking, the core concept of the Dark Tower is the titular Dark Tower itself, the Man in Black and the Gunslinger.
