    This was a good film
    Not as scary as the book,
    But very well done

    Writer’s block in winter
    Jack is not such a dull boy
    Don’t call room service

    Sidewinder? Sno-Cat?
    Check it out, Wendy!

    Who knew little girls

    That’s it – HERE’S JOHNNY!

    I love The Shining!
    That Stephen King hated it
    Told me everything.

    The Shining’s okay

    Was so incredibly lame —
    NOT an improvement.

    made a better Olive Oyl
    And Jack peaked as George

    Carpet, flooring, carpet, floor,
    Ominous wheel sounds.

    the Stanley’s famous
