The Shining - Supplement

While we try to cover as much as we can in our episodes, there's always more to see, hear, and read about a movie that can enhance your viewing experience. If you enjoyed our commentary for The Shining, here's a few extra bits you might find interesting...

Episode 100: The Shining (Commentary)


We've reached episode 100 and what better way to celebrate than to offer our views on one of the most debated motion pictures of all time? We're getting lost in the hedge maze of Stanley Kubrick's iconic horror film The Shining, and to up the ante, we're making this our first audio commentary. Watch the movie with us as we identify differences between Stephen King's novel and Kubrick's adaptation, ponder the film's apparent discrepancies and continuity errors, and debate the morality of Kubrick's directing methodology. Cue up your copy of the movie and listen for our countdown to start. Warning: Contains explicit language, spoilers (obviously), and all work and no play.

Episode 98: Midnight Run


We all may be stuck at home at the moment but for this episode we're taking a cinematic road trip as we watch Midnight Run from 1988. We discuss the film's mix of crime and comedy, the conflicted morality of De Niro's bounty hunter character, and our different reactions to Danny Elfman's bluesy score. Meanwhile Corinne shares her legal expertise (courtesy of Law and Order) and Tim notes which members of the cast have been squashed by King Kong. Warning: Contains explicit language, spoilers, and celebratory donuts.
