    In the minority that I loved the book (Dr. Sleep) and hated the movie (The Shining) so this doesn't bode well for me.
    I'm wit you!! However I have high hopes for this film, despite, Webstar's insight offered. I'll be going and either be pleased as punch or, disappointed and feeling like I was punched!!!
    I guess there is no winning with me because I was disappointed in the book for not being "Shining" enough and ripping the poster for being too ""Shining" ughh. I'm an ass! Ha!

    The main issue: I wanted King to write a true sequal to the Shining not Mike Flanagan.

    I saw the film today and I liked it a lot! It's pretty faithful to the book (of course it has differences, one that's major but I won't spoil it here) and while it's lenght is not short, I never grew tired of it and enjoyed it 'til the end.

    I saw three easter eggs inside, all related to one particular SK work.

    I never doubted Flanagan. If thereís a lukewarm response itís because people want The Shining Part 2 and thatís not what King wrote. But Flanagan is one of the best working horror directors. It was never going to be a cheap cash in like some have suggested.

    I'm surprised but happy to hear all the great reviews. I had pretty low expectations based on the trailer.

    I've just returned from an incredible experience in LA, including meeting part of the cast, talking with Mike Flanagan and walking de Red Carpet. I'll post more details soon but I think everyone will love this film!

    I hope so. OF ALL Kings work... this is my least favourite book. The only one I struggled to get through. I flat out hated it.

    I knew they were recreating a lot of the Kubrick footage, but this article goes into more detail about what was reshot and what was original.

    "I fancy it's the limitation to a thousand copies that is the chief charm and value of an edition deluxe. I don't expect to read this edition deluxe myself, although you needn't tell that to anybody else. Frankly, you know, I don't suppose that anybody ever reads an edition deluxe. No one puts bric-a-brac to any very practical purpose. There's some human instinct which makes a man treasure what he is not to make any use of, because everybody does not possess it.

    Another thumbs up from me for Doctor Sleep.

    One of the best SK adaptations I've seen.

    The incorporation of material to sequel Kubrick's The Shining fits perfect and looked great.

    Favourite line from the film...."I have to wake it up"!

    I'll be going to the first showing of Dr. Sleep on Thursday. I've never been to a first show before so maybe there will be some promotional items given out. I can then join the madness here in collecting even more stuff....


    Oh, and I did enjoy the book.
    There are no coincidences.

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