I need to learn the back story of the guy in the bear suit and what exactly he was up to.

To be perfectly honest I'm fine with the writers from Shutter Island, Black Swan, and Zodiac working on this. The latter two movies rated 87% and 90% on RT, respectively. And I'd much rather see the backstory to the twins getting murdered than whatever vampire sequel King is working on now.

Besides putting me to sleep and having no relation to the book? Nothing, nothing at all.

Yeah, I can't say I can argue with putting directors that have worked mostly on nonsensical, simplistic, and blatantly manipulative but popular and stylish tripe on a Stephen King project. It does seem kind of right, in a way.

It is kind of an insult by association to Kubrick, though, I mean he tended to make actual movies with plots 'n shiat, the Shamalayan twist bullshiat that fueled Shutter Island and Black Swan is kind of unworthy of a project that even vaguely references him.

//Didn't see Zodiac on the assumption that it was probably better when it was called Dirty Harry. According to most of the critics I was apparently pretty much right.

WTF? Hopefully the next "The Shining" movie, somebody will read the book. Get a facking Kindle or something.

I'm not bothered that the Stanley Kubrick movie didn't follow the book so closely, I thought it was a great film inspired by the book. Especially compared to the TV version of the shining which was really bad (I just rewatched it recently).


Instead of seeing a prequel to the Shining, I actually would like to see a good movie that does closely follow the book. The TV version was just too cheesy and held no suspense. I could imagine Ben Foster or Ed Norton as the lead in a remake.

The last time someone who knew the book did it (the author himself) did it, it was farking terrible.

Thanks, but I'll stick with the unfaithful but vastly superior Kubrick version.


/my real concern isn't about the sequel. It's the inevitable PG-13 rated Hollywood remake that will follow with James Franco and Mila Kunis

Wait, King's writing a book about "Shining" vampires? Way to jump on the bandwagon, sheeple!

Good Lord. Stephen King has turned into the Kevin Smith of writing.

Well, it took him a LOT longer to go crazy in the book. It doesn't mention his history of abuse either, does it? Also, living plant art animals, but I'm kind of glad those weren't in the movie... I enjoyed the book a little more, but the movie was very good too.

The cast is not yet decided and no plot details have been released but there is speculation the movie may take up the story of the hotel's previous caretaker, Grady, who murdered his own daughters with an axe.

The movie does mention his history of abuse. In the book the axe is a roquet mallet, and the black guy gets to live.

In the book Danny's "imaginary friend" tony plays a much bigger role. He shows Danny what has happened in the past at the hotel and what his father is going though and helps protect him. Also in the book it is a lot clearer that the hotel itself is possessing Jack to the point he doesn't have control over his own actions anymore. During the final chase scene jack momentarily regains control of his body tells his son to run away and mutilates his own face before losing control to the hotel and going back on his rampage.

They are both awesome the movie is more of a strange up horror story where the book is more of a psychological ghost story.

Also in the movie you just got the idea that the hotel was evil only because of all the bad things that happened there. In the book the fact is the hotel is cursed because it was built on an ancient Indian burial ground. This was mentioned very briefly in the movie and if you watch closely you see some Indian references.

You see, son, when you do enough cocaine, it makes you shine on the inside. That's where we get all these great ideas for movies that make us millions of dollars *snort*

Has anybody pitched a gritty reboot of Lawrence of Arabia yet? 'Cause if not, that shiat's mine? *snort*

How about:

Here's a story about an upcoming movie you might want to Overlook?
 
2012-07-31 09:18:56 AM

Carth: In the book Danny's "imaginary friend" tony plays a much bigger role. He shows Danny what has happened in the past at the hotel and what his father is going though and helps protect him. Also in the book it is a lot clearer that the hotel itself is possessing Jack to the point he doesn't have control over his own actions anymore. During the final chase scene jack momentarily regains control of his body tells his son to run away and mutilates his own face before losing control to the hotel and going back on his rampage.


Jack also starts out in the book as just a regular guy who went through a really rough patch, not a man already right on the edge of sanity like he appears in Kubrick's film. There's plenty more about the hotel, too, including who the hell the guy in the bear suit is (Horace Derwent, the millionaire who restored the Overlook in the 1940s).

Wendy is also not nearly as annoying in the novel, Dick Halloran (who also appears in IT) doesn't just get axed in the back, and you do come to understand that it's not ghosts that art haunting the Overlook, the place itself is evil.

It does fit into the King universe though. The breakers from the Black House, Atlantis, and also the DT books.

/I used to like his books but they have gone off the rails decades ago.

I do wish Shia was a bit younger. Have him play the son of Grady and be chased around with a ax weilding mainiac might actually be conductive to his "no, no, no, no" bit. Also it would guarantee him being killed at the end.
 
2012-07-31 09:24:43 AM

Babwa Wawa: Why not?


If you did a story about Grady and went more into detail about Derwent and all the crap he got up to at the Overlook (orgies, murder, 1940s gangster stuff) you might have a decent movie. However, the likelihood of "not sucking" is about 1 in 10000.
