What are your thoughts on it, /mtv/? I was put off at first watch of this, considering a few things but now I am ready to embrace this I think.

the book sucked and never should have dared call itself a sequel to The Shining. Seems like that TV show Castle Rock will do a proper The Shining story before Stephen King himself can.

I gotta give em credit for changing the dumb name of the book, but yeah, no one wanted this.

lol, they didn't change the name, the posters just downplay it and hype up that OMG THE SHINING nostalgia. If you enlarge the poster, you'll find a teeny-tiny Doctor Sleep.

Ewan McGregor is pretty cool, but I expect this move to be wank.

just hope the writers and director kept king away from this
the shinning worked because Kubrick went his own way

I think it’s going to have Ewan Mcgregor play the adult Danny from the Shining and somehow this black girl is related to the dude from The Shining.



>pros
We get some elaboration as to what kinds of people found value in that sort of ability and maybe some decent or really great continuity

>cons
could be a whack as fuck bunch of typical villains


I’m excited for this tbh. If it sucks, I still get some Kubrick music in the film and a performance out of Ewan Mcgregor as well as I’ll get to enjoy some nostalgia.
Cautiously hype

Yes

Not unless they change the book. The black guy will also be the marker of whether this takes place in Kubric-land or the King-verse. In the Shining movie, the black guy dies, but in the book he survives, so if his mortality,status will be the decider.

Considering this is the Sequel to the Kubrick-land movie version—I’d think this film has to maintain that story and therefore he couldn’t be alive like the books, suddenly changing this to a book-based sequel that follows up a movie which did the opposite.

Wouldn’t surprise me if they somehow pull a rabbit out the hat and bring him back though, it’s a supernatural story.

Don't forget, Stephen King bitched and moaned about how shitty he thought Kubric's movie was and eventually made his own movie of The Shining just to show people what he thought the film should be like. No surprise, everyone liked Kubric's more. But there is technically canon in movieland for the black guy to be alive. So this depends on how involved the studio allowed Old Man King to be with the project.

looks ok, but I hate when they shoehorn in minorities/women in every movie these days for 'muh diversity!'. It is forced.

Did they change the race/gender of a character from the novel or add characters? I know nothing about this movie or the book on which it's based.

I can see an objection when an established main character is suddenly switched for a film adaptation. When people were pushing for Donald Glover to play Peter Parker in Spiderman I felt it would be nothing but a cheap ploy. If it's a supporting character I don't give a shit. I might give a shit if race was somehow integral to the character's existence. You're whining about women and minorities under the assumption that it's purely done to appease. You've given no examples of who is changed or why the change is detrimental to the project or your fragile existence.

"You're a fucking idiot." was all your post warranted.

I could be wrong but I think those characters were like that in the book and even then, have you just lead a crusade against the book this whole time?

I'm not the "shoehorned diversity" guy, but I do hate how King;'s politics become more and more glaring with every book. Dude doesn't understand subtle and thinks that it's fun to make it obvious because he enjoys "trolling the right", but I'm a leftie and I just hate seeing super-obvious political messages in media, keep some degree of fuckin subtlety. This book in particular is obnoxious. King is atrocious at writing black characters and they wind up such caricatures that TBH a Lovecraft book would be a less racist read.

lol I'm not some hater, I love King and have read all 100+ of his books. I only nitpick because I love. There's two things King can't write: endings or black characters. Heck, there's even a couple occasions where his politics make a book better instead of worse, like Under The Dome and The Dead Zone, but for the most part, his political interjections are beyond cringey.

Girl is a bit of a mary sue in that she is basically Neo in the matrix, but I liked all else and thought the actress doing a modern take on Danny’s mom was super spot on if not a CGI. Didnt like the jack torrence or bartender dude or whatever that was supposed to be. Happy with the timing and pacing.I enjoy Kubrick’s work as usual.
