    This movie was soooo good!!! I do understand why it didn’t do well at the box office. The Shining was god awful. And to understand this film, you’d have to watch The Shining, which is a hard thing to do. I must say, as well, that this movie was 1000 times better than The Shining. They paid homage to the original, which was cool. Really good movie. I hope it does well with the Home Digital and Rental markets.

    Excellent plot but they did not bring the old iconic actors , instead they put a bunch of lookalikes.

    Although there are some deviations from King's book, I thought it was a great movie.

    Absolutely loved this film, kept my attention the entire time, awesome homages to Kubrick and some genuinely terrifying scenes!

    I never liked The Shining, but this movie was just awesome and something that I could watch over and over again. The villains were a little too much and seeing them get destroyed was glorious. It was a career defining moment for Ewan McGregor and Rebecca Ferguson, who acted amazingly.

    The movie itself is not "bad". It's just "evil". I'm sorry - but I don't find murdering and torturing children something I want to watch. No matter the narrative.

    I was thoroughly disappointed with this movie. Danny’s character was obscenely boring and the pacing was slower than slow. The plot wasn’t that bad (obviously since it’s a Stephen King story) but the execution was not there. Additionally, I expected a TON of nostalgia when the movie finds its way back to the hotel, but even that part wasn’t done well. Unfortunately, this was a huge miss in my opinion.
