Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Shining

I saw this in a theater with someone who yawned their way through it. "What about the girls?" "Are you scared of little girls?" "No! They're not supposed to be there!" I also know people who think the Steven King version is better. "Don't you realize this is a masterpiece?" "Steven King's was closer to the book." "The book sucked! This is a profound meditation on fear! This is Nicholson at his prime!"
