  2. Yeah, Ihe True Knot stuff was so well done and really intense at times. So creepy how they all lunge at Grandpa Flick's steam after he dies.

    I went to Cinemark last night to see this and the theater told me their drive wouldn't download so they wouldn't be playing Doctor Sleep. They gave me a refund, a rain check for this and a free ticket last night of my choice. Hoping to have more luck this weekend.

    Two people in the screening I was at walked out during that scene and didn't come back.

    honestly I get it. I thought it was really well done and super effective, but I also know some people just can't handle stuff with kids. everyone's got their limits.

    It would have been a more understandable reaction had it happened at the beginning with Violet but by the time it happens with the baseball kid I was well and truly invested in the plot by that point, not a comfortable scene by any means but I guess you are right that people have their limits but I personally didn't find the scene to exploitative like it could have been in lesser hands.

    im a fan of Essoe and i completely forgot she was here. but her Wendy game is so on point.

    i liked this a lot, super fun. i feel like this is what i would’ve liked Glass to be in terms of a grounded version of people with supernatural powers fighting each other.

    makes me want to pick up the book. so many stuff i want to peel that i feel like the book would explain.

    and i feel like this is the first time i’ve ever seen villains use a motor home. normally villains have fancy cars, or big bikes. but nah, Doctor Sleep villains be practical with their convoy of motor homes
     
  9. Highly recommend reading it!

    I remember thinking the book was total meh, but maybe I was wrong

    I haven’t seen this yet, just dropping in to say that anyone who still calls Henry Thomas Elliott needs to watch more Mike Flanagan stuff.

    I loved everything about this. But the only thing that took me out of the experience was when a clip from The Shining was shown..

    Don't make me an optimist, you will ruin my life. Prestigious

    Wow, I had no idea what the running time was. I didn't look at my watch even once during the movie (a great sign) and when it was over, I was shocked by the time. Thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this.

    So sad this is tanking at the box office because its actually really good and I've already seen it twice. Maybe if it was released last week to go with Halloween it would of done better?
     
  21. Yeah, should have been released in October

    the phenomenon of releasing thriller/horror films soon after Halloween is odd

    First and third acts are great. Kinda lost me in the middle just a tad, but yeah this was great. Everything involving the hotel was perfect.

    I checked over at boxofficemojo, but I'm not crazy about the new design of the site and I couldn't seem to find the budget of this... With the talk of this tanking badly, what kind of numbers were they expecting this to do?
