The Contenders: Page 6
I actually like the changes that Kubrick made. It's nothing like the book and that's ok. Adding the maze was a great metaphor and nice visual touch not to mention the added potential for tension. The problem is in the word potential. It's a horror movie! Build some tension and add some scares for gods sake! This movie is almost two and a half hours long. And for the most part nothing happens. When something does happen it's over before it can get scary. Seriously, the most frightening thing that happens to Jack is that he kisses a naked old woman.
It's not because this movie is boring or anything, it's just that almost everyone calls this "thing" a classic or a masterpiece. I mean, COME ON. The film completely destroys everything that was wonderful about the book. The acting is terrible. The wife and the kid is annoying, Jack Nicholson is terrific of course, but turning from a psychopath to an homicidal psychopath isn't what I call character develepmont. The rest of the movie is filled with shots of the hotel, creepy occurences that are neither discussed nor mentioned afterwards, a bad and confusing script and finally it ends with a close-up shot of a photograph that eventually leads to these secret messages or meanings that are supossedly hidden throughout this whole movie. Also even back then it wasn't well received (It was nominated for 2 Razzies)
This movie was great and the acting of Jack Nicholson in this movie was mind blowing,I admit that it isn't a very scary movie but it's a quite good movie to watch and people don't much about this movie about other movies - zxm
Not overrated at all. This was a game changer for the horror genre.V 1 Comment
The stage musical is great, the movie is okay - Username123
Went on too long, and the plot shift in the second half was awkward.
This is underrated, not overrated.
How is this overratedit was panned by critics and audiences alike
I'd say it's a bit overrated, but Kevin Smith improved this with Mallrats and Chasing Amy. - BeatlesFan1964

Overrated, Annoying the hype is everywhere! From curtains, to clothing, to stuffed animals, IT IS DRIVING ME INSANE.
I'm 18 years old girl and I really like this movie. I don't think it is overrated at all. This movie can be watched over and over again which is that what I do with this one and the first one only skipping little parts of it but watch most of it again. In fact I've been wanting to get minion or minion thing for a long time now and I will get it soon since where I live which is Canada has these things and since my birthday is coming up in 2 and a half week I can ask my parents to get them to me as part of a gift basket present. Having said that really liked the movie and is not overrated at all. - LucyLu18
Despicable me 1 was tolarable, but this one, adding almost no important storyline to the franchise, coming before the even worse " Minions" movie, was just so much to take. - alimarashianV 3 Comments
I'm surprised that something this long and monotonous was recognized as one of the greatest movies of all time. Still a great movie though.
Never liked that movie. So boring. Tried to watch it once to understand " why? " but I don't get it. Where's the praise for that movie? Overrated.
It was an epic film and probably great for that time and definitely a classic yet still overrated.V 1 Comment

YES! So boring and overrrated!V 1 Comment
It was so boring! Other than the occasional fights and that bit where the hunchback is in the strip club, its not interesting.
Predictable and pretentious. Id rather watch traffic go by. At least I would see an occasional bumper sticker with more depth, intelligence and meaning.V 1 Comment
Sure, it's a good movie, but no way deserving of its Academy Award.
Good movie. Should it have won the Oscar? No. - BeatlesFan1964
This movie took oscar over inception so,I think its little bit of overrated,though its good but inception was better - zxm
