    Doctor Sleep

    ★★★★

    If THE SHINING is a descent into pure clinical madness, then DOCTOR SLEEP is the restoring of sanity and soul, step by step, piece by piece until one is, and feels, completely whole again. Flanagan elegantly weaves together Kubrick’s icy, iconic imagery from the 80’s classic with his own simplistic, economic storytelling piercing the dark confines of trauma and supernatural evil with ferocity and genuine heart.

    Day of the Dead

    ★★★★★

    The only thing more shocking that this is a decent netflix original is Seth Rogen's character was offered a joint and he declined. Enjoyable family- reconnecting film.

    Equal parts spooky and cozy; like snuggling next to a crackling campfire with hot chocolate reading a nice book. Love love love it (and that classic Carpenter score!! ugh, soo good).
