(I see you there, Pennywise, at moment in the trailer.) Which is to say, it’s a complicated series. So you can’t really expect the movie adaptation to capture it all.Some wise parts of the internet have made their peace with that—and, maybe to its credit, the movie doesn't try.Set in Shizuoka and Tokyo, Japan in the late 1980's.Suzuki (Shota Matsuda) is a university student in Shizuoka attempting to find a job. They meet through a blind date and begin to date, but Suzuki finds a job in Tokyo and goes there.
Check out the trailer for the film here: Vivien del Valle She loves discovering new places, dragging friends to said places, and initiating gimmicks--which is a nice way of saying "pasimuno." She's a broken soul that's been saved by grace.The long version is, well, longer: It involves not only Deschain following a bad guy called The Man in Black (aka The Walkin' Dude, aka Randall Flagg) across the desert, a psychic boy named Jake Chambers (Tom Taylor), a woman in a wheelchair with dissociative identity disorder named Odetta/Detta who has tactical sex with a demon and uses the sieve of Eratosthenes to find prime numbers, a heroin addict named Eddie who fights a gun battle naked and defeats an insane train named Blaine with dad jokes.There’s also a place in New York called the Dixie Pig where cannibal vampire things eat people, and a place in Mid-World called Calla Bryn Sturgis that’s patrolled by robot wolves.)Speaking of guns, the bullet juggling in the trailer is fantastic—the mid-air drop-swipe! The Lifesaver, where you flick them out of your palm with your thumb! Eddie adapts the Gunslinger's creed to his purposes: "Because I shoot with my mind," he thinks in the book. God help me to shoot this overblown calculator with my mind.—and I'd watch the movie just for lizard-brain-stirring gun lore: “I do not aim with my hand … Help me shoot it from around the corner." I've always loved that scene because it’s a way of thinking that can get you out of a rut—it could get a lot of us out of some of the ruts we’re in, actually, if only people would do it more.
