The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Room 237 (2013)


Director: Rodney Ascher


Premise:
Several theories exploring the hidden meaning behind Stanley Kubrick's The Shining

My Take:
A fascinating film where you hear five different takes the interpretations about the true meaning of The Shining. None of these theories are remotely connected. One says it's about the slaughter of  Native Americans. Another claims it to be Kubrick's admission to him faking the moon landing footage. Another is about the holocaust. Plus a couple of others and several other hidden items pointed out. It could have been edited better to help distinguish these theories (way too many clips from other movies) and often these people come off as obsessed fans of the movie (what are their credentials anyways). What makes it so interesting is the way each are so convinced and have proof, though some is very far fetched. Cineaphiles will enjoy these discussion.

Rating: So Good
