Episode Info:

Director Mike Flanagan takes on the immense challenge of making a film that is both a sequel to Stephen King’s 1977 classic novel THE SHINING and Stanley Kubrick’s iconic 1980 film of the same name with his movie, DOCTOR SLEEP. In episode 114, Luke & James discuss where the ambitious movie succeeds, and where it might miss the mark. 


Spoilers Begin: 36:49

Topics: what makes for a good sequel, the definition of “art house,” the value of callbacks & references, reaction to the recasting of Jack and Wendy Torrance, how this compares to Ready Player One’s Shining references, Jacob Tremblay’s on-set antics, Rebecca Ferguson’s scene-stealing Rose the Hat performance, what may and may not be in Ewan McGregor's wheelhouse, and the unification of the original novel and movie’s climactic moments.
