"The Shining" — It's all in how you look at it

Just a fun, wholesome heart-warmer!

I think my favourite one of these is the horror-styled trailer for Mary Poppins.

You know, your new picture goes with everything. Just love it!

I think I remember that; maybe I'll queue it up for an "eventually."

I've been in the midst of a discussion with someone about the pop-gospel, the warm/fuzzy overlay of the hiss underneath (for those who have ears to hear)...this illustrates that PERFECTLY. Especially when you put it in contrast with this trailer.

Actually, if you want a real object lesson to stick with you, try this one on for size. You'll never hear "Leaning on the Everlasting Arms" the same way again.

Oh yeah. The original is a very creepy, well-done movie.

'The Shining' book is MUCH better than the movie. No wonder Stephen King was disappointed with Kuubric's interpretation of it. In the book, Jack Torrence is a pitiable man because you can see how hard the battle is for him to fight evil. There are lots of Christian themes in the original story.

What a stupid clip this one is!!! I wish Stephen King would publicly burn it!! :)
