Well no doubt this has plenty of classic moments, but thats mainly because this movie is 20 hours long and it has Jack Nicholson in it. He pretty much has to carry the film the whole time and try to make it look halfway good in the prescene of horrid actress Shelly Duvall who seems to enjoy making retarted facial expressions just to see how much it will piss off the viewer. The movie's pace is slower than molassas and sometimes is just downright funny because of all the freakin overacting. They cut out a bunch of stuff from the book and turned it from "supernatural" horror to "psychological" horror. In other words, Mr. Kubrick turned it from imaginative and entertaining to crappy and annoying. Overall this movie still was pretty good considering the parts that everyone knows and quotes and also a few others as well. Still not enough to save it from being the so called "classic" that it is. Ah well.
