Go in with no expectations and I think you'll really enjoy the film. I was expecting a new classic, but instead got a leisurely paced (interesting) history lesson. Unlike "Goodfellas," "Godfather" or "Casino" there aren't any scenes that stick out where if you watch the film again you'll be waiting for (i.e. "What's so funny about me" type moments). The acting is amazing (especially great to see Pesci back). Worth seeing on the big screen.
If you've seen "Near Dark" and "Monster's Inc." you've essentially seen the entire plot of "Doctor Sleep." Immortal(ish) bad guys cruise around in an RV looking for victims to either recruit or live off ("Near Dark"). To ensure immortality, they have to collect pain from their victims, which they then store in canisters ("Monster's Inc.") and sniff in hilariously bad sexless orgies.
What's great is that the bad guys have been around for thousands of years, however they can be killed by any normal fatal activity (shot, car crash), so how any of them lived to be 100 is a bit hard to believe.
The strange reenactments from the original are just distracting and serve only to make me wish they would re-release "The Shining" on the big screen.
It's like two slow Season 5 episodes merged together with a bunch of filler. It takes a long time for very little to happen, with one false start after another. Not sure why they bothered to make it.
After a promising beginning, this movie falls apart in such a spectacular way it's almost like watching a car accident just to see how bad it will get. Bloated with heavy handed metaphor and scares that are more goofy than scary, the film drags on with an ever increasingly pointlessness. I don't know who told Peele he was a genius, but he makes movies like his audience is comprised of morons who need to be spoon fed his super important messages (really, racism is bad? There is rampant social inequality? You don't say...) . Movies with messages can be great, but please make an entertaining movie to convey the message. Laugh-out-loud awful.
