Okay so this is going to be experimental and a bit risky so I hope it works out. This is a thread dedicated to people who want to vent their thoughts on a movie that they might feel a bit to be unpopular. Say you like a movie everyone hates or hate a movie everyone likes.
To give everyone a feel of what I mean, I'll go first.
I do not like The Shining. I know, sorry to tip over one of those sacred cows but I don't like it. My biggest issue is that Kubrick took an interesting concept of an innocent, good man being driven to insanity and wanting to murder his family and gutted it. The way the character in the movie was written, greatly exacerbated by casting Jack Nicholson, the story morphed into a tale of a man, who from the first second you lay eyes on him looked crazy,…who goes crazy. Also there is no real emotional nuance or pathos to his breakdown, evil ghosts did it, they're confirmed to have existed when they unlocked his door. Because of this, I really did not find myself invested in Nicholson's character. Didn't care about the boy either, the mother was the only one I had any sort of investment in. I really just don't find the movie scary either, I mean the elevator had its period, how is that scary?
Not to say that this movie isn't chock full of amazing cinematography, the tracking shot with the tricycle, the chase in the snow that looked so dark and bleak, that amazing transition when Jack's character froze to death.
There are many good things in the movie, personally for me though, it just didn't work as a movie.
So there you go, knock yourselves out, you can discuss peoples thoughts on a movie and offer your perspective aside from giving your "confessions". There will be no JUDGING or "how the fuck could you like/not like x movie", you can discuss but keep it civil and respectful, I don't want this to become a hostile environment.
Hopefully this can work out and we can give some unique perspectives, I find the best way to appreciate movies, masterpieces and flops alike is to see the bad in the good and the good in the bad because nothing is perfect and nothing is without some sort of merit.
