The Shining rules. But since the sequel is coming soon we did our duty and went looking for sins. Found some. I bet you're surprised.
Thursday: Holiday sins.
Remember, no movie is without sin! Which movie's sins should we expose next?!

  • When I first found out her name was Wendy I was like “Peter pan!” And the. When jack said “Wendy! Darling!” I was like :0

  • In all seriousness, the thing I never really bought into was how quickly Jack went from normal guy to homicidal maniac. Nicholson's performance, as touched on in this vid, was so over the top to begin with that he never seemed like just a normal, healthy everyman.

  • The greatest error kubrik made was changing Jack Torrence to appear mentally unhinged from the outset rather than what the book depicts as a very slow descent into madness.

  • Problem is that the movie hints at a lot of backstory that IS IN THE BOOK...and left out of the movie.

  • Apparently Stephen King didn't want Jack Nicholson cast in the movie because he felt like he didn't have the ability to make the character go from straight and narrow family man to full on crazy.

  • Most of this stuff can be chalked up to the book being both written in a way that defies tidy logic that movie audiences demand but at the same time being too iconic to alter significantly. This is the "It" conundrum... when it's explained, it loses it's awesomeness. Also the good guy rushing in just to get axe/dog/shotgun stomped is a hallmark of King horror stories.

  • CinemaSins: picks apart a month miscalculation by a character that could easily be an estimate by said character and simultaneously narrates "MAPS" instead of "math". Goteem

  • They're not twins. They are just dressed the same. Which is creepy. But doesn't make them twins.

  • Is it disturbing to realise that the hotel turned jack so crazy he forgot his first name?? Like when he yelled Here’s Johnny??!!

    • "Jack" can be a nickname for "John" or "Johnathan".

  • Alright Sin Guy. You've had it too damn easy covering all these shitty films like "The Shining" and "Die Hard". I think I speak for everyone here when I say you've been challenged to the test of an actually good piece of art. The true American classic. "Beavis and Butthead Do America"

  • Can someone clear up the timeline with the hotel murders? All the clues around the hotel.. the party, the picture.. all point to the 20s. But the guy at the beginning said the incident happened 1970?

  • You missed one thing, in the bathroom scene Jack says to Mr. Grady that he read in the newspaper that Grady killed his family, how could this be possible if Mr. Ullman was the first person to tell Jack about the 1970 incident? When Ullman asked Jack if he heard about the tragedy that happened in 1970 Jack said he hadn’t heard about it, therefore he never read it in the newspaper! There’s another Kubrick mistake for you.

  • You’re sinning things deliberately put in the movie to make the viewer more uneasy. Sin yourselves for that.

  • Spoiler alert, the sequel is bullshit, recicles a lot from this one to make it more relevant and messes the end of the book, which was actually pretty damn good, the mc dies and abra is damn black (no racism intended :p)

  • Okay going to be honest their's so many things that are wrong with the hotel and Stanley Kubrick did this on purpose he did it to give it a sense that somethings not right.

  • So I guess you don't know how alcoholics think. They can go crazy. 5 months of sobriety nearly always turns into 3 years in their minds. "Look how good I've been." You quit only 3 months ago." Jack; "I started quitting 3 years ago, and I started thinking about it 5 years ago. Don't I get credit for anything?" "Besides you're supposed to 'overlook' my digressions same as we all 'overlook' that the rich 'best people' built this place on indian burial grounds, and killed a bunch of them doing it. I overlook your ugly ass. You're lucky to have me you scrawny Olive Oyl bitch. I'm Jack fucking Nicholson". No wonder Danny has nightmarish delusions. Wendy's mind isn't in much good shape either after being terrorized like that. Halloran recognizes there is something wrong with the kid but doesn't realize what it could be until he is on vacation. Same as you didn't understand what it's about even though it's been out nearly 40 years. What it's about? That the lives of ordinary people, even the "best" people, can be a horror. What's the meaning of Jack in the old picture at the end? That it's always been that way. So there's no excuse that you don't know it. You just "Overlook' it. With your eyes wide shut.
