Holy Smoke, I never realized that Doc is wearing a freakin' "Apollo Rocket" sweater. That proves it, Kubrick really did film the moon landing. This movie gets better every time I watch it.
Wastage of time may be in 80s it was big horror but nothing special in it better watch The Misery it was kool movie
It's a Thing Called Perception... You Can Say it's Underrated and Another will Call it Overrated. From Age to Culture to Education and Beliefs in-between Nothing is a 10 nor a Zero.
How people can claim that this is anything under a nine is beyond me. First, like any piece of art and like most anything, The Shining has to be reviewed from its appropriate genre, not just as a piece of art, say, or any such level of abstraction. As a horror film, there really is very little that compares. The way Kubrik, considered one of the all time best directors in the history of cinema, period, holds the spectator at a distance from uncertain horror and never actually does or needs reveal it explicitly, in its entirety, is quite unlike most of the rest of the genre. That one unique quality of the film drives it high on the staircase of horror. As well, one must remember who wrote it. Stephen King is known for very interesting science fiction films that truly can horrify the watcher, and the plot of the shining is no different. The acting, the actors chosen, the scenery, the music, the slow, steady build up; I don't think we'll see another horror film come close to Kubrick's... ever. It's not that it was all that scary. It's the way it was scary. That's why it stands out.
One of my all time favorites 8.5/10
8.2/10 its a really good movie, classic. But wow can you believe it's 34 years old O.O
That yellow poster of The Shining reminds me of Chucky. Excellent movie though. Book is even better.
