Does this film really need a review? I mean, it's The Shining! Everyone has seen it, right? And if you haven't whats wrong, why aren't you running to the video store to buy it? It's certainly Stephen King's best adaptation, but I think it is not because of King himself (who hated this version, and was determined to re-make a more true-to-book version several years after this one). The real ... read more

Kubrick at his finest, Nicholson at his finest. What else could anyone want? This version of Stephen King's book has almost nothing to do with it. And that's one of the best things about the film.

In 1997 King did a remake with many more elements of the book, and the film is a sleeper. I had to watch it like four different times to get through it.

Anyway, I'm not here... read more

Jack Nicholson’s face grinning menacingly through the axe destroyed door, an iconic image from one of the best and most important horror films of all time. Stanley Kubrick’s first and last horror film, The Shining is one of the most revered, quoted and well known films to have graced the art of cinema. As an adaptation, it has been claimed by many that Kubrick managed to put his own spin on th... read more

One of my favorite films

“Warning: Spoilers

The Shining, you know what's weird about this movie? This is the movie that everyone, for people who claim to not like horror films, will always say that The Shining is a terrific film. This is Stanley Kubrick's classic vision of Stephen King's horror tale of madness and blood. This is just an incredible film and wither you have seen it or not, you have heard of it, know a few lines from it, and know some of the classic images. Who could forget Jack's "Here's Johnny!"? Who could forget "All Work and No Play Make Jack a Dull Boy"? Who could forget that chilling ending? This is the film that is unforgettable and honestly in my opinion is Kubrick's best work. I know there is a lot of argument in that department, a lot of people say it's 2001: A Space Odyssey or Clo” read more

Pros and Cons of Films: Vol. 1 (121 movies items)

"Pros: It’s atmosphere and overall dread. Jack Nicholson, as Jack Torrence. He is very terrifying. Shelly Duvall as Wendy. Danny Lloyd, and Scatman Crothets. Music by Wendy Carlos. Memorable moments, including the twins and the room! It’s a enigma. One of Stanley Kubrick’s best films, and Stephen King’s best film adaptations. The opening half, and cinematography. Cons: Shelly Duvall’s treatment, during the making of the film. Admittedly, Jack going crazy feels jarring, if no"
