    Doctor Sleep

    ★★★★½

    Went by quickly for two and a half hours! Also, the cast is fantastic. I never thought I'd say it but this is a worthy sequel to "The Shining"...not as good as the original but still a fine film. Well done, Mr. Flanagan!

    Following the IMDB rating system, I give it 9/10 and call it a must watch in the theater!

    The Lighthouse

    ★★★★★

    I was oddly enough thinking of a line from the movie "Tootsie" while watching "The Lighthouse." Bill Murray is a playwright in the 1982 comedy and, at a party, states he wants people to come up to him and say, "I saw your play last week....what happened?"

    Following the IMDB rating system, I give it 10/10.

    House on Haunted Hill

    ★★★★

    The twists and turns here are as plausible as an Oscar nomination for Jean Claude Van Damme but it is a lot of fun thanks largely to a cast led by Vincent Price. While I prefer the 1999 remake, as far as rewatch value, I still love this film and had a blast showing it to my wife last night who had never seen it.

    Following the IMDB rating system, I give it 8/10 and call it a buy.
