Doctor Sleep (****1/2) is shining bright

"If you think you might like this film, you will. It's what a second movie should be: pushing the story forward without treading over the same old ground. Even if it ends in the same place."

Nothing I say here will likely prevent you from seeing this film. That's fine. It works sort of hard sometimes (very few, really) to entertain. It is definitely a likable venture.

If I can save you a few bucks on the Imax price, my job is done. If I had run out of steam on this review a little earlier, I probably could have strengthened the script. I would need my kids to fix the special effects, though.
