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.
