Richard Madden was in Rocketman and that did good. Alfie been in the John Wick series and those movies have done well.

Seeing it tonight!!

ALSO, I rewatched the movie for the first time in over a decade and it was the first time since reading the book and now I absolutely hate it lmao. I tried to appreciate it as a separate thing but I just got so mad watching it last night so it makes me happy that Stephen said this movie was like a redemption of it.

Doctor Sleep was a pretty good tie-in to The Shining!

I pretty much agree with reviews that mentions that the first 2/3 of the movie is great but the last third gets a bit wonky.

Ewan was PERFECT in this role and Kyleigh Curran who plays the main girl steals the show!! Her character is g r e a t.

Only kind of related to Doctor Sleep but this week's episode of Castle Rock was SO good, omg.

Also, my dumbass didn't catch that Ace Merrill is a rework of Kiefer Sutherland's Stand By Me character until episode 5. Even though that's literally his name and they're from Castle Rock, lol.

Is this season better than the last? The first season started well but really didn't end with any good resolution.

I didn't watch the first season but I really like this one! Lizzy Caplan is amazing and the story is pretty solid so far, even though I get kind of confused because I'm not that familiar with most of Stephen King's work.
