I'm a huge Stephen King fan and The Shining is one of my favourite movies of all time. I was hesitant to watch Doctor Sleep for a long time, especially since I was not a big fan of the recent It adaptations (it's an incredibly difficult story to adapt though so I have sympathy). But I have to say Mike Flanagan did an excellent job. He found the right balance of nostalgia and a storyline that is contemporary without trying to imitate Kubrick's style. Grown up Danny Torrance walking through the deserted Overlook hotel was one of the most fascinating experiences I've had while watching a film. And while Ewan McGregor was predictably solid in his role, the big revelation to me was 14 year old Kyliegh Curran - it's so difficult to find good, convincing child actors but her performance really surprised me, I hope she has a great career ahead of her.
If you're a fan of the original film and somehow missed this one, I cannot recommend it enough.
EDIT: thanks for the award strangers! happy to see there are quite a few fans of the movie here.
My husband and I got married last summer. We were limited to 10 people and planned to have a big reception this year. Our area is tentatively opening up, but almost all of our guests would be coming from out of state, including DH’s entire family, so we decided to just cancel the celebration. As a “consolation,” we decided to go to one of our favorite places-Disney World-for our honeymoon (original also cancelled). I have a ton of food allergies and Disney is one of the only places I can safely eat at, meaning I won’t have to cook the whole time!
We booked our package through Disney for later this summer, hoping we’ll be vaccinated by then. My husband was excited that we finally had a plan, so he mentioned it to his dad while they were talking on the phone yesterday. No big deal. I’d told my mom and one of my aunts I’d talked to yesterday. We should be able to share-we’re excited!
Then MIL calls this morning and tells DH to put us on speakerphone. She has the most exciting news for us.
They’re joining us on our Disney trip! It’s going to be so fun. Finally a family vacation! MIL is pumped! FIL booked everything last night. She wanted to just surprise us this summer by showing up, but couldn’t hold it in anymore. Plus, she wanted me to make us all matching shirts.
This was supposed to be our honeymoon. The only “normal” part of the wedding experience we didn’t get to have and the in-laws decided to crash it.
Thankfully she “couldn’t contain her excitement” so we had a heads up. DH, without my prompting, called Disney and got the dates switched and told me not to share with anybody just in case (with the exception of my mom closer to because she’ll babysit our dogs). I’ve had some creeping doubts about DH’s willingness to stand up to his mom in the past, but I am SO beyond happy with how he responded. He’s not planning on telling his parents we switched the dates we’re going. His comment was, “They’re getting what they deserve.”
TL;DR: MIL found out we were going to Disney World for our honeymoon and got FIL to book them a trip at the same time so they could “join us”. DH changed the dates we’re going and has no intention of telling them he did.

Mid lane is the most abundant source of AP damage in the game. Every other lane fills roles of AD, tanking, utility or a combination of the few. Especially in the new meta where picks like Vlad or Ryze or Rumble top are no longer competitively viable due to them being run down by hundreds of gapclosers and stridebreaker users.
It is rare for any other lanes to be able to deal sufficient AP damage for the enemy team to build magic resist (unless you have an AP mage support, then hope your ADC enjoys having no peel and can manage by himself/herself)
So when the midlaner last picks a Talon or Zed or other sort of AD midlaner when theres no other source of AP damage, the enemy Ornn or Malphite then decides he doesn't want to ever die this game and takes a steaming dump on the entire game.
If you are picking an AD mid, tell your team before they all pick
