I have to say, I went into this with a little trepidation. Spielberg is my favorite director and I like the book so I was just waiting for this to fail me. The moment they stepped into the Overlook Hotel I knew that no matter what, I would love this movie. And I do! They could have spent more time developing the characters, that love story went by at lightning speed. The acting by most of the cast was wooden to say the least, Mendelsohn and Rylance carried them on their shoulders. Aside from those somewhat small gripes, I really enjoyed watching this movie. You could tell it was made with a lot of heart and Spielberg is just so damn good at making an adventure unfold.
