Film Review: Doctor Sleep (2019)

11.9.19 It’s been a long while since this blog site posted a film review and I decided to do a review courtesy of Mr. H Reviews. He is this British dude I follow on YouTube who not only does movie reviews, but also news on upcoming film trailers, franchise discussions, and other things. Here he does a film review of Doctor Sleep, starring Ewan McGregor. Doctor Sleep is based on a novel by Stephen King, which is a sequel to his 1977 novel The Shining. I found a small description of the film… Struggling with alcoholism, Dan Torrance remains traumatized by the sinister events that occurred at the Overlook Hotel when he was a child. His hope for a peaceful existence soon becomes shattered when he meets Abra, a teen who shares his extrasensory gift of the “shine.” Together, they form an unlikely alliance to battle the True Knot, a cult whose members try to feed off the shine of innocents to become immortal. Two reviews, one with spoiler, one with non-spoilers.   I hope …

Creative Close-Up: There Is Room for All Cinema

His response: “Honestly, the closest I can think of them, as well made as they are, with actors doing the best they can under the circumstances, is theme parks,” He also adds, “It isn’t the cinema of human beings trying to convey emotional, psychological experiences to another human being.” Ok, but then he had to touch the subject a few more times, “We shouldn’t be invaded by it,” and  “We need cinemas to step up and show films that are narrative films.” Francis Ford Coppola said that Marvel films are despicable, then Jennifer Aniston added to the pot, that she’s not interested in living in a green screen. To be honest, these are their own opinions, and I respect them, but they fail to …
