    I love The Shining.

    Kill me for saying, but the only movie Stanley Kubrick ever put out that I didn't really care for was Dr. Strangelove. I can see why other people like it, but it wasn't for me.

    A Clockwork Orange and Eyes Wide Shut are among some of my favorite movies of all time, though.

    The Shining is probably Kubrick's most flawed major film but it's still great and still a classic. It's getting a rerelease for Halloween due to a remaster. It's showing in a few cinemas here. Definitely gonna catch it.
    my cinema is doing a double billing of the Shining and room 237 for halloween, getting on that shit

    Edited:

    Not completely. They said that they wanted Alex to beat the shit out of them while singing, but they didn't have a song for him to sing.

    Stanley Kubrick asked Malcolm McDowell on set if he could sing, to which he responded "a little".

    He picked "Singin' in the Rain" on the spot and Stanley Kubrick bought the rights to the song that night.

    Gene Kelly (the original singer of the famous song in the movie of the same name) and Malcolm McDowell never got along after "A Clockwork Orange" was released.

    true, me too but when it's called the greatest "horror" flick.... i dunno. I just feel something different to "fright" tbh, can't explain.

    Strangelove is cool. Wouldn't watch it often though (as in every year or two).

    that's why Stephen King was pissed off about it too, apparently in the novel you're not meant to realise that he would go insane.

    I saw it a few days ago, ridiculously funny.
    It was a long time ago since I read the novel but didn't it start with Jack trying to recover from alcoholism and the history of his domestic violence?

    Well even if Dr. Strangelove isn't my favourite (I do like it). I still think Kubrick had huge balls making a dark comedy about the cold war during the actual cold war.

    Depressing but true film. Still don't get     why she didn't take her boyfriend and mickey with her    

    also I had an idea about     the soldiers were actually the enclave from fallout, made a lot of sense; they were taking non-irradiated girls to repopulate? gah i kept thinking of fallout after she left the vault

    When it comes to The Shining I will never understand why Kubrick though that the scene in which    Jack Nicholson's wife runs into that ballroom or whatever and there are SPOOKY SKELETONS everywhere    was a good idea.
    I mean come on, I don't think people found that shit scary back then, much less now.
    It just came off as campy and silly, almost managed to ruin a perfectly decent horror flick.

    Edited:

    Also The Shining and Strangelove are by far the most overrated of Kubrick's flicks, I'll take A Clockwork Orange and Full Metal Jacket over The Shining and Strangelove any day of the week.

    Agree on Strangelove because it fucking sucks but Shining is on par with ACO and FMJ and I don't know if I could pick a favourite among them.

    what about the    running into the bedroom and finding a dude in a tiger costume?   . Thought that would be more obvious to target seeing as the camera zooms in quickly and you have that loud soundtrack.

    That moment for me, was meant to be creepily funny. I think Kubrick had a lot of fun with the film, it's not like he liked to keep everything in the same key..

    Yeah, in fact that was the reason I watched it again, because it came up in conversation that it wasn't actually them and I had always just assumed it was because I didn't know better.

    That was by far one of the best movies that I ever saw, my mind was blown and I was simply stunned by everything. It has such a deep and interesting story, the movie plays with your mind. It does not simply give to story away right from the start. The acting is topnotch, so is the soundtrack. At the end everything makes sense. I definitly recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in psychedelic movies.

    The grim future established was really interesting, the soundtrack was ace, seeimg Michael Caine as a pot-smoking cheeky old man was great, and it really delivered some stunning scenes- I teared up on several occasions. Spoiler: This was my fav scene

    Coincidentally Dr.Strangelove was on free to air tv today.
    I give it a 6/10
    It wasn't horrible and i found some bits quite humorous (particularly the phone conversations between the president and demetri). But it wasnt amazing either.

    you used the words deep, top notch, psychedelic and mind blown in the same review.

    Great, simple movie. I love how they kept it so simple and honest when they could have so easily gone too 'indie' or hipster-y, especially with the time travel. Also, Aubrey Plaza is my spirit animal

    Well a friend of mine suggested that we should watch it, we were classy in a lounge at his home while drinking some good ol' whiskey. After the movie we had like a discussion about the movie, he asked us what the movie is all about. Later on he explained some of the things and then it all made sense.

    Was fairly standard in its plot but eh it's got Will Smith being Will Smith, something that I've been waiting for for far too long. And it redeemed the god awful MiB2.

    Well, my english skills are not the best ones but I will try to do my best. Anyway the movie is about jealousy, envy, treason and despair. The movie has many little details and there are still some things about it that I do not understand.

    Basically the story is about the girl Betty, she arrives in Los Angeles and wants to be a great actress. Her life seems like a complete dream, she has an awesome flat, a great casting, she looks good etc. Few days after her arrival in the city she met a woman in her own flat, her name is Rita. Rita had a car accident and well lost all of her memories.

    Betty and Rita try to work out what happened to her and investigate the whole incident. This movie is really hard to describe due to all the details. So I just write it down in a few sentences

    Betty is dreaming all the time and only imagining the whole story, nothing is true. It is only her imagination, due to drug use and major depression she imagines that her life is great and that all the other ones are evil. In her dream she is like an angel, almost perfect. In reality she lost touch with everything, she failed as an actress in Hollywood. Succumbing to the pressure and superficial society. Furthermore Rita was a sexual interest of Betty, both are lesbians until Rita decided to stop their romance to be together with some director. Betty is unable to accept such a thing and slowly dies in the inside, she cannot believe it. Rita had been successful all the time and managed to actually be a star in Hollywood. So after all, all the persons that you meet in the movie are characters that she meets at the very end of the movie where she is at a dinner with that director and Rita. She only inversed the whole story in her mind to deal with all the problems that she has. It is some real psychological stuff right there, she simply supersedes the whole story. In her jealousy and despair she finally hires a contract killer to kill Rita. After a while she becomes insane and is unable to cope with the guilt, thus killing herself.

    The thing is that this movie mixes a lot of different things together without any chronological order. 2/3 of the movie is her dream, there are also many indications for it. Then at the very end you actually see how her life is. Then sometimes it switches back to her dreams, where everything is perfect. In reality it is the opposite. I hope this made any sense at all.

    first of all, i'd spoiler tag your whole post.

    secondly... calling it JUST a dream is the easiest thing to do for a movie like this. Your conclusions, albeit intriguing haven't helped me, sorry. :)

    Really amazing acting from Matthew McConaughey (damn his fucking last name is annoying to spell out) and I liked the story. It felt a bit cheap from time to time, though.


    The trailer makes it out to be a lot funnier/more action filled than it is. It's pretty weird, dark and slow-paced, which I liked a lot.

    you realise all of what you said could be the other way round? That's the messed up aspect of this movie that bends my mind.
