    I really like the book as well. It balances out the universe because Kris hated it and I didn't care for Brother

    As I said in another thread it had me with the first four notes.

    Yeah, I noticed some of the Easter eggs in it. There are some other things happening if one pays attention. But...

    There was one minor scene where I felt my plush stadium theater seat fall out from under me. I simply began observing the scene and no longer listening to the dialog. I was thinking, "WTF? I've been here before. I KNOW I've been here before."

    That is what made the movie for me.

    And I'm not doing a spoiler.

    Saw it today and enjoyed it. Some great scenes, very good acting. Shot beautifully. Everyone should definitely go see it!

    I really enjoyed the movie, and that's saying a lot since I wasn't a fan of the book at all. I loved how they took a lot of nods from the film version of The Shining and incorporated it into this film. I went to see it with my boyfriend who's only seen The Shining, and hasn't read either book and he really enjoyed it as well. He thought it was a good sequel to the movie, so I do think it was a good choice to merge the two together. There is one thing I wish they had incorporated into the movie but overall I thought Flanagan did a great job with it.

    I really want to see it but still haven't read the book. I wanted to re-read The Shining before diving into Doctor Sleep, so the commitment of the two long-ish books (with all the other books on my to-read list) is what keeps bumping it back down the list.

    I'm sad to hear it's not doing too well. Mike Flanagan is a great director; hope he can still get big projects.

    They probably should have opened more in time for Halloween, no? Its gotten good reviews from what I have seen. Go figure, right? Seems to me it was a strange opening for a Horror film after Halloween when ur going right into the Xmas season which, I would think is not a prime time for Horror films. Then again there is a reason why I'm not a big shot movie producer!!! lol lol

    Ironically The Shining wasn't a box office success either. This movie will still be destined to become a cult classic regardless

    Cult classic? This movie was no where near the Shinning in any way. The only scene that gave me chills was the drive to the Overlook with the music playing. This movie could have been on Netflix and probably should of. Much like Geraldís Game. It was ok but no classic... just my opinion of course.

    Yeah admittedly even as a sequel to the Shining it doesn't scream 'box office success'. That and it's largely been advertised as a sequel to an almost forty year old film (that isn't part of a franchise), classic or not.

    I still think Flanagan should have remade The Shining (he has the talent) and then did this. Kubrick's film isn't some sacred cow.

    I really liked the movie. I thought the actress for Rose was great. The imagery on the scenes taking place in the character's minds were amazing (particularly the entire scene with Rose searching for Abra and falling in her trap.)

    Unfortunately, there was hardly anyone in the theater with us and the box office numbers show this happened everywhere. It's no wonder Hollywood only wants to make superhero movies now. (Funny but this is actually more of a superhero tale than a horror movie when you think about it: individuals with special powers fighting it out with half the action on the astral plane.)

    First time I've seen this detail: Warners was so keen on Doctor Sleep that movie studio chief Toby Emmerich had already struck a deal with director Mike Flanagan and his Intrepid Pictures to script a sequel whose working title is Hallorann, drawn from the character who appears in both The Shining and Doctor Sleep.

    He probably should give it a go. Personally, I think, Kubrik's film is a piece of shit. IMHO he murdered a classic horror novel and I just don't get the folks that claim it's a "Masterpiece of Horror film making". Though, I would suppose that the folks that never read the book see it in a whole other way than those that have read it. With apologies to, Webstar I feel that, Kubrik's film isn't even worthy of Netflix however maybe that's a bit harsh. Netflix carries some God awful films in my opinion. Let me stress that these thoughts are just my opinions.

    Flanagan, seems to be a really good film maker in the horror genre and will probably get better with time. Why not do another version of "The Shining" so that they can "Update the source material for a new generation" like they seem to be doing with every decent film they can get their hands on these days!!! lol lol He likely couldn't do any worse than, Kubrik did. Or perhaps, the guy who did "IT" could take a shot. He seems very capable.

    Well, Halloran did say in the Doctor Sleep movie, "Ka is a wheel."

    He also said to him the Overlook's ghosts were just pictures. So where is the action in that. It would have to be some origin story where he used his telepathy before going to the Overlook.

    Anyway, it isn't going to happen with these box office numbers.

    I just saw it. I liked it as much as I figured I would given the source material; it didn't blow me away like some of other Flanagan's material but to be fair the book didn't either.

    I've said my views on the Kubrick fanservice a few times now and it hasn't changed but they made it work as well as it could.

    Ewan McGregor was a fine Danny but Rebecca Ferguson stole the show.

    Regarding the ending...

    Spoiler:
    In theory I like the idea of reintroducing the book's ending but in execution it was just rushed. Even in the Kubrick film where Jack was a few screws loose it took the entire film for him to go crazy.

    Here Danny who is for all intents fairly well-adjusted, in complete control of his mental facilities and even able to resist the temptation of the hotel's booze just needs to be touched by the ghosts for him to go full "Heeere's Johnny".

    Hereís my take on it:
    Spoiler:
    Having opened all his mind boxes, all ghosts were there and came for him at once. He was overwhelmed and possessed quickly by the Overlook. In the case of his father, it was a more gradual process as the Overlook and itís residents took their time with him. Also factor in the fact the ghosts had been trapped for a long while and were starving, and Danny (having a stronger shine than his father) was more vulnerable in some ways, although that power also enabled him to fight back better in others.


    I saw the film last Sunday and enjoyed it a lot.
    Spoiler:
    I thought they could have done more with the True Knot folk, although Rose the Hat was fantastic, and The Crow and Snakebite... thingy had their moments. Also kind of wish theyíd shown Dannyís father in a more sympathetic light, like they did at the end of both novels, rather than just another evil resident of the hotel, but considering how the film version of the Shining ended, it makes sense.


    Overall, I really thought it was great! Itís a shame it didnít do so well in the box-office. I liked it better than It Chapter 2, and that was pretty good. I didnít find it particularly scary, but I didnít think it was really about that. A couple of the hospice scenes made me feel rather emotional, in a good way, and there was one scene that horrified me.
    Spoiler:
    I donít mean horrified in the scared sense, I mean more in the shocked and disturbed way.
    If you have seen the film, or read the book, youíll likely know the scene I mean.
    Spoiler:
    To be fair itís not overtly gory or gratuitous, but I kind of wish it wasnít there, yet accept it is required to emphasise the depth of evil the True Knot is guilty of.
    Job done, I guess, but... that was awful. And it was meant to be.

    Hoping the films popularity picks up.

    Rose and I just finished the movie. I gave it a 3/5. I haven't read the book, so I have a question.

    Spoiler:
    Throughout the movie, Abra is shown multiple times to be stronger than Rose the Hat, so why were her and Danny so worried about her at the climax?
