“Doctor Sleep” is a sequel to 1980's “The Shining,” and it picks up about 40 years later, as an older Danny Torrance tries to protect a young girl from a cult that tries to feed off her psychic power. “Doctor Sleep” can’t really decide whether to be the sequel to Kubrick's or King's "The Shining." This leads to a film that is dull in its best parts, and just plain goofy in its worst parts.
Hollywood, much like the rest of America, was rapidly changing in the 1960s. The system of years before came tumbling down, ushering an era more similar to the modern Hollywood we know today. This divide from the old and the nosedive into the new gave us some pretty spectacular films. Here are six of my favorites.
I don't like this movie. In fact, I very much despise this movie. I hate this movie with every fiber of my very being. I can not fathom how any one person can even enjoy this. Its very existence feels like an insult to musicals, film, and my time. I feel a way about this movie that is only comparable to the way Victor Frankenstien felt about his creation. That its mere presence is a crime upon existence itself.
By the time the 1950s had rolled around, the Hollywood machine was already well and running. However, with the rise of television, the film industry had to prove to audiences that cinema was here to stay. This resulted in many great films. These are my personal five favorites from the era.
