*Wooo Lindsay is here!
* Needful Things can get on the sillier side, yet it some how works.
* Max von Sydow (how is it pronounced?) revels in playing the Devil and we’re all here for it.
* Ed Harris’ end speech might be kinda lame but it’s still kinda awesome.
* What would be your needful thing?
* Of course Bede enjoyed The Dark Tower, it’s on brand.
* Marcey was confused by it, so was Lindsay, why is it a sequel to the books?
* Idris Elba owned the role of The Gunslinger, bring him back!
* Plus much, much more!
