Well I just finish watching the shining and I reliized something: at the end of the movie it shows a picture of jack nickleson(dont get me on the spelling for his name) at a party in the 20s. In the picture he looks pretty young. The movie takes place in the late 80's or early 90s. So I think jack was an evil spirt with unfinished business.

So what do you guys think of this movie. Is there anything else symbolic I may have missed.

(note there probly more than likely is a thread for this movie and I'm aware of that. Also I only watched the end just now, I watched the whole movie a year ago so im not to keen on facts about it)

The spirit of the hotel shows ghost recreations of parties from the past. Jack Torrance attends the ghost parties.

The ending in the Book was much better than the one in the movie, imo.

Yeah, I agree. At least Dick doesn't die in the book. (Sorry about spoiler in case anyone hasn't read the book).

Actually the movie takes place in the late 70's, when Stephen King wrote the book. I'm not entirely sure on what was going through Mr. King's mind when he wrote the book, but I know that in the 70's he was a drug addict and an alcoholic with family issues. Which is why he was able to tap into that dark style that he is so famous for. Or maybe the cocaine was just making him come up with a f***ed up story.

They put it in there as a nod to a part of the book that was omitted.

actually, the movie is pretty ambiguous on that point.

Stanley Kubrick liked to do that apparently. It was still a great movie IMO.
