“The Shining” Review
The Shining (1980) | Amazon
Directed by Stanley Kubrick. With Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, Danny Lloyd, Scatman Crothers. A family heads to an isolated hotel for the winter where a sinister presence influences the father into violence, while his psychic son sees horrific forebodings from both past and future.
I hate to admit this, but I’d never seen this film before. I’m a Stanley Kubrick fan, I’m a fan of Jack Nicholson, and Steven King’s adapted stories are usually pretty good, but from what I knew of the movie, it was just about a guy going crazy up in the snow capped mountains. I was under that false assumption until it’s sequel was released and the trailers made no sense to me. I mentioned this to my wife and she set me straight. It’s a fantastic movie and definitely changes how I view “Ready Player One” a little bit. Maybe I’ll go back and re-watch that to see what I missed.Favorite This!
