With so many negative reviews on the movie, I felt compelled to ask the question...could this movie just be another revolution in the wheel of Ka? In the last book, when Roland finally reached the top of the Dark Tower, he ended up starting all over again. As it only could have been, as Stephen King says. So to me, the movie is just another installment in the series, starting at the end of the last Dark Tower book(Not the flashback book that followed), only this time, it is on the big screen instead of the wonderful pages we have all have read and loved. And with that assumption, can we all assume that each time Ka turns the wheel, Roland comes back as a different person(Irdis Elba this time) with a slightly different story line but moving towards the same end, to stop the continuing decline of the Dark Tower? The movie hints at this in many places, for example, when The Man in Black says that every time Roland embarks on his journey, everyone he walks with dies. So my question to all of the fans of the Dark Tower books is, rather than all the negative criticism from the movie reviewers that have more than likely never read the books, and all of the fans of the books that hate the movie because it doesn't follow the book story line exactly, can the movie actually be just a new version of the story and can we hope that this time, Roland actually finishes the job and stops the Dark Tower from falling for good? If that is true, then we all have some more installments to the story to look forward to, that may one day end with the Dark Tower actually being saved, and everyone living happily ever after...Assuming that the big screen lets the next version of this storyline be made, disregarding the poor reviews and criticism. Let me know what you think. And if you agree, promote the new view so more movies or books(This one if for you Steve) may be made so we can continue our walk down the path.
