the dark tower series | about that ... movie.

Oh, I know; I know — you're disappointed, right? What did you expect from a room full of fat-faced fools who couldn't read even if a book had legs and its skirts were hoisted above its thighs.

Chin up, buttercup. Our train doesn't stop here. After all, one step forward, two steps back, and you — are still going back, remember? It's a valiant effort, I must say. All of Roland's droning? And I mean, Jesus, how long are we gonna have to sift through that junkie's baggage all over again?

Here, I'll lead. You? Make like our beloved and virtuous Gunslinger and follow.

[She flashes him a sharp smile.] I ain't quite as quick on my feet as your friend the Gunslinger.
