Review: The Dark Tower + Possibility of a TV Series!

The only redeeming feature of The Dark Tower – casting Idris Elba. Rating: 5/10 As someone who has read Stephen King’s The Gunslinger, I felt that The Dark Tower was nothing more than a generic fantasy with no soul.

A Chat With The Hosts Of You Have Been Warned Asia

The Internet is ridden with clips of people doing crazy, hilarious and downright amazing things and on You’ve Been Warned, the best of the best are highlighted and analysed. With a band of hosts who all have a kink for science, The Level talks to Ramon Bautista, RA Rivera, Lourd De Veyra, Angel Rivero, and Jun Sabayton on what they think about viral videos, the different aspects of being a viral star, and their favourite clips of all time.   How do you guys feel about being social media stars?

Right now, we are making them learn science in a fun way because of ‘You Have Been Warned’. So yeah, it’s fun as well.   Lourd De Veyra: I just have to say that Ramon is one of the social media superstars in the Philippines and none of us come even close to him in terms of the numbers of followers. But in the minor realm that where we operate, it’s fascinating and at the same time, nerve wracking too. It’s significant social media following because as Ramon had said,...
