Let her answer my Chinatown question first, or Zorn shows up and makes you run laps.

THEY DON"T HAVE IT AT HOLLYWOOD VIDEO! :'( I started watching it online, but I fell asleep, and it took SOOO long to get it loaded but the window was mysteriously closed next time I got on my computer, so I haven't got around to finishing it yet

Yes I have seen The Shining. I've also read the book. It's one of my favorite books.

I love Jack in that movie. I hate Stanley Kubrick for butchering the story. I can forgive him though since it's a pretty badass movie. I don't know, I mean, poetic license is one thing, but he completely made Jack a BAD guy and I didn't like that so much.

Me loves Kubrick, and I like what he did with Clockword (Anthony Burgess did not!), but, yeah, he took a little too much license with The Shining. Still a great flick, though.

Ashley. You. Need. To. Watch. Chinatown.

Kubrick is extremely hit and miss with me.

Chinatown. Loading. Now.

He's mostly hit with me, and those hits are cherished by me. I'm a big fan.

I've only read a page or two of the book, so the movie wasn't ruined for me. The setting alone makes the film worth watching.

Want to see something that will ruin both for you? YouTube - The Shining - A Romantic Comedy

If I don't like Chinatown, I might just cry a little. It's become this sort of epic quest for me to see the movie. Every film class i've had so far has used it as an example at least a million times.
