Me walking out of Dreamcatcher: They changed the ending
My now-ex: What do you mean?
Me: In the book Duddits wasn't a farking alien, he was just a psychic retard!

Come to think of it, next time I need a new login Just a Psychic Retard might work.

karmaceutical: This is an interesting tidbit, I guess. I never really walked away from a viewing of The Shining with a sense that there wasn't enough 'splaining involved.


did you think that he was reincarnated? or did you understand what that picture at the end really meant?

Mugato: RoxtarRyan: There are a LOT of theories about this movie, actually, and a good basis for conversation with friends when drunk. I've heard everything from the movie being a satire of life of a rich businessman in the 80's (coke, killing people, and being psychotic) and your lawyer will cover it up for you so you can continue to live the comfy life, or he did all those things and no one noticed because no one cared (everyone too wrapped up in their own world of excess and selfishness), and it was simply about him simply being batshiat nuts.

My theory is that even though he did start to go batshiat nuts at the end, he got away with everything because all those yuppies were so nondescript and interchangeable that no one noticed when any of them disappeared or they thought they saw them somewhere even though they were dead. So nothing Bateman did really mattered. Then Mila Kunis killed him in the sequel.


I just read the book a couple of weeks ago.

My take is that it's all in his head. Patrick Bateman is totally nuts. There are parts in the book where he is obviously having delusional episodes, like when he says that he watched a talk show host interview a Cheerio.

It's a good book, you should read it. It's funny, and there's nothing else like it. Can't say that it has ANY re-read value, though.

If he'd faded into that last text with Journey's Don't Stop Believin' as background music he might have had something.

Couldn't be weirder than the shining ending of "Lost".

Mugato: I don't get it. I thought Ullman was going to be another ghost or something. Seems rather pointless. What's the significance of the yellow ball?

I have a ball. Perhaps you'd like to bounce it?
