“Finally got to see my most anticipated film of the year and Iu0026#39;m happy to tell you itu0026#39;s everything I wished for and more. Flanagan has done an amazing job adapting the book from Stephen King and giving lovers of the Kubrick film adaptation of u0026quot;The Shiningu0026quot; (1980) a cinematic sequel.nNow i read the book and while I enjoyed it for the most part, I found parts of it underwhelming. I feel in this film adaptation, Flanagan takes elements from the novel and manages to make them more darker and serious which in turn really helped address some issues I had with the book. He does make some serious changes though and while I embraced them Iu0026#39;m not sure how others who read the book will feel about them. u0026quot;The Shiningu0026quot; (1980) to me and Iu0026#39;m sure a lot of you, is a masterpiece in filmmaking. I for one prefer it over the novel and with this film, it most certainly feels like a sequel to Stanley Kubricku0026#39;s version and a love letter to that film. The last 30 mins or so are absolutely amazing and kudos to Flanagan for pulling it off.nEwan McGregor does a great job as an adult Danny Torrance and Rebecca Ferguson captivates as Rose the Hat. The film sets a great tone with some stunning visuals and the score completely grabs you. How much you enjoy this film really depends on what you want out of it. Thereu0026#39;s practically no gore here and no cheap jump scares. What youu0026#39;ll get though is expert filmmaking from someone who you can tell really loves the source material heu0026#39;s pulling it all in from. Everything struck a balance for me that I was tremendously pleased with, top horror film of the year.”
