Tomorrow, anyone interested in extra-credit (or just seeing a darn good creepy movie) should attend the film club's screening of Kubrick's 1980 adaptation of Stephen King's The Shining (2:15 in the Lecture Hall).
Please use this post to thread comments regarding these masterworks.

This movie is by far my favorite movie we watched this year and from beggining to end I liked this movie I even watched it at home on Netflix and ive watched it before and I liked it a lot sence the plot it was very interesting and I had to watch it multiple times to fully understand the movie and the monster in the movie but overall I definitely approve of this movie and would give it a 4 out of 5 but only because I didn't get the monster part and how he was and what he did and why but overall good movie I liked it

The movie has gotten way more interesting now because they keep sneaking in to the world trade centers an keep bringing supplies to help figure out how they will go across. They needed to figure out how to send the rope across over 200 feet an tested many different ways. His friends are now very cautious because a security guard walks around at night an its funny because they get so scared. They help him practice to walk better by shaking the rope for practice so just in case a wind comes he will be able to handle that an when the towers sway. They finally get ready for the walk an everyone on the ground is watching in astonishment. No one cane believe a man would risk his life to do that. All the viewers thought it was beautiful an it was different an they liked that. They went about their lives everyday an that was so plain but they seen something that would never happen again. Then he got arrested but they didn't know what to charge him with an I found that funny . He knew was just a step away from death but he conquered the towers an showed the world anything is possible and to never let anyone stop you. I enjoyed the movie but the beginning was just a little weird but once u get into it its good.

I found the movie "Rocky" intriguing to say the least because of the theme of an underdog trying to go live the American Dream. I like the story of Rocky who is a gentle hearted boxer that works for the Mafia. Even though I usually don't view many movies around this genre I felt like this movie really pulled me in with its use of camera angles, sound, and its themes.
In the movie I noticed people riding in vans having multiple interviews people dreaming of building the twin towers in the movie there was suspense and there was interviews people talking about the twin towers now there talking about a tight rope walker there sneaking into a security breach it's the tight rope walkers dream to do something big with it and walk over a huge building now he's planning to walk over the twin towers to have a huge opportunity to stun the world
