So I just got done watching The Shining on TV. I had never seen it before (like most of the great movies that everyone should see) and wow...
How can people like that movie? The movie takes forever to get anywhere, includes a lot of weird and random non-sense (most of the ghosts), and one of the main characters was played by a horrible actress. Yes, Shelley Duvall was completely horrid. And she was the most horrifying thing in the entire "horror" movie.
The movie took about two hours to finally get interesting and then it ends with the most anti-climactic ending. I think I would have preferred a cliffhanger ending instead of the actual one.
I understand the premise of the movie, and I applaud how well it broke down most of the plot, but that still doesn't make it good. Maybe there's something that I'm missing that's stopping the movie from being good, so please fill me in on anything that I'm clearly missing.
