The Shining (1980)


Here's to five miserable months on the wagon, and all the irreparable harm it has caused me.
So basically: Jack Torrance, a writer with a drinking problem, lands a job taking care of a reclusive hotel resort during the off season in the hopes of having little distraction to write a book. He brings his wife and his son, who possesses the strange power of shining, with him. During the course of their stay, however, Jack slowly slips into insanity as the ghosts of the hotel infiltrate his mind.

Oh, Stanley Kubrick. You all know how I love this director and my love stays strong during the watching of this film. Though, I gotta say, the first time I watched this I found it slow and couldn’t actually get into it (to be more honest, actually, I turned it off without finishing it! That was before I gained my love of Kubrick and a solid appreciation for film, though). Srs, if you’re like me, and you found it boring on first viewing, and vowed never to watch it again, please please reconsider! It’s totally worth it and one of the best horror-type films ever. Get a group of friends together, watch it with the lights off and a bag of popcorn on your lap, you won’t be disappointed.

This movie is sooo fascinating and defs deserves to be on the list.

Ziggi seal of approval!


  1. I remember we figured it out that one night...But I can't remember what we figured out. It's a strange movie, likable, but strange. Definitely slow paced for the first watch, but it gets better.

  2. Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
    I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on.
    Any suggestions?
