Doctor Sleep ★★★

Well what do ya know, this was decent. Don't get me wrong, it has some issues (the usual problem I have with "big" movie third acts for the most part). There are some weird dialogue things and a little too much A + B = C overly conventional plotting/exposition, and it sometimes feels like it is dragging (though I can't think of anything that could be trimmed from it so who that's probably just me). Doctor Sleep is for the most part a good adaptation of the source material and also did as good a job as can be expected at the unenviable task of attempting to follow up a Kubrick film. Doctor Sleep is a weird story adapted well with a strange enough structure and solid enough performances to make it worth a watch.
