Movie mini challenge

For the movie challenge I chose The Shining! I’m ashamed that I’m 30 years old and just now getting around to watching it, haha. But now I can finally say I have! The scenes in Ready Player One finally make sense XD

The verdict:

What the crap did I just watch?

Seriously guys. No one told me how weird this movie is. Was it scary? No. I laughed through a lot of the parts that I’m pretty sure were supposed to be scary. Was it disturbing? Um, yes. It traveled a wee bit too far into wtfery territory for me. First off umm Jack Nicholson was creepy AF?

Second what the actual fuuuuck was that bear/pig disturbing thing with the butt flap that appeared to be sucking some dude’s dick?!!?! CAN SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN THAT TO ME. I don’t know guys, this movie was just a little to odd for me. I like weird but this took it to a whole ‘nother level. And the ending?!

Let’s not even mention the weird ass little talking finger imaginary friend repeating REDRUM! REEEDRUUUM in the freaky/annoying voice over and over and over and O V E R again.

Mostly, I was just bored to be honest. This movie is 2.5 hours long and not much of anything really happened for the first HOUR of the movie besides a couple little glimpses of the creepy little girls. The screenplay was a bit odd and awkward at times – and so was the awkwardly suspenseful music when literally nothing suspenseful was happening. All in all, I kinda feel like that’s two and a half hours of my life I’m never getting back. Oh well, at least I can say I’ve seen it! It was almost worth it for the iconic “Here’s Johnny!” scene. 

This is my new fave reaction gif, lol.

Side note: If I was Wendy I’d have slapped Jack right in his damn mouth for talking to me that way -___-
