Following the success of selling his books, many novels by Stephen King were later adapted to the big screen. In fact, The Shawshank Redemption, which aired in 1994, is touted as one of the best films of all time.
The first is The Dark Tower (1982-2012). Which started showing on Wednesday (23/8) yesterday in cinemas. He himself called it the magnum opus. aka masterpiece. The genre is broad. In addition, The Dark Tower is also a bridge that connects the stories in other King novels. Because everything is interconnected.
Like the novel version, in this film version of The Dark Tower, the main character is a gunslinger cowboy. The name is Roland Deschain (Idris Elba). The so-called Mid-World. It is said that the main task for a Gunslinger is to protect The Dark Tower. Namely, a mystical tower. Which becomes a crutch between the “other world” and the real world in which we are.
The Gunslingers’ arch nemesis is an evil wizard. The name is Walter Padick. Nicknamed the Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey). Who wants to destroy The Dark Tower. In order to save Earth and the universe, the Gunslinger must stop the Man in Black action. With the help of his student, a boy from New York City, named Jake Chambers (Tom Taylor), can the Gunslinger, Roland Deschain, complete his mission? However, King never dictated to the director. He is only limited to giving advice and opinions. Because it is not limited by anything. They don’t have to please other people. They don’t try to be friends. Full of explosions. Which is very bright. Which is different from this version of the film. Which first aired in 1993-1995.
Meanwhile, as in the serial version, the antagonist in the film version of Power Rangers is Rita Repulsa. Played by sexy MILF Elizabeth Banks. That is: 65 million years. Former Red Rangers. Which is very, very old. aka millions of years old. He is assisted by Alpha 5 (Bill Hader). A cute robot. Which can change into various forms.
Namely: Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie (1995) and Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie (1997). However, the three are not related. This 2017 version of the film is a reboot. One of the five teenagers has autism. Namely: Billy Cranston (RJ Cyler). Once upon a time, by chance, Billy found a mysterious stone. Which, it turns out, is the Zeo Crystal. Who has the ability to turn Billy and four of his friends into Rangers with super powers.
Go Go Power Rangers! The generation that grew up in the 1990s must be no stranger to Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. A television series that tells the story of a group of ababil from Angel Grove, California, who have super powers. In fact, you could say, it’s not legal to be called a slang if you haven’t watched Power Rangers.
Like the legendary Goggle V, Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger is part of the Super Sentai series produced by the Toei Company. Then released it with the title Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (MMPR). Back in 1993.
