The Shining (1980) – Filmsack Show Notes

INTRO:

Oh no. It’s happening. it’s happening. it’s The Sackening!

oh hi, The little man who lives in my butt is back. He’s telling me about this week’s movie. Oh….By the way, I’ve never watched a FilmSack movie in my life. I just say what my butt goblin Toby tells me.

What’s that Toby? Ok, I’ll tell them:

He says:  Poor old Head Chef Scatman was just trying to enjoy some well deserved rest in his bachelor pad down in Miami. Then that white boy invaded his headspace with his “Shining.”

And, what does Scatman do? (hehe…Scatman Doo)…

Scatman do hop a plane, take a cab, rent a Snow Cat, brave a Blizzard and wander the halls of the Overlook hotel. His reward? An axe wound to the chest.

Scatman should have stayed in bed… maybe spent a little more time starring at his sweet foxxy mama posters. Ahhh yeah…that is some sweet chocolate candy there.

Thank you Toby for your insight.

Wow, It’s almost like I pulled that intro out of my butt!

The Tragedy of Winter of 1970 – Charles Grady..Wife and 2 little girls…8 and 10…Ran Amuck…killed his family with an axe. Stacked them neatly in the west wing and put both barrels of a shotgun in his mouth…the old timers called it cabin fever.

Their house sure is white….like renters white.

Book “The Wish Child”

Germany, 1939. Two children watch as their parents become immersed in the puzzling mechanisms of power. Siggi lives in the affluent ignorance of middle-class Berlin, her father a censor who excises prohibited words (‘promise’, ‘love’, ‘mercy’). Erich is an only child living a lush rural life, aware that he is shadowed by strange, unanswered questions.

Tony puts me to sleep…and tells me stuff…but when I wake up I can’t remember it all.

Places are people…Some shine…some don’t…the overlook shines.

Bad things that are happening are like burnt toast.

Some people who shine can see things from way back

Room 237

You are scared of Room 237…No I ain’t

Stay out of 237

gif by Scott Johnson

 

“A Month Later”

We got this whole hotel. I’m going to make use of the food cart!

Big Wheel!!

That thing makes a horrible noise on the hardwood floors…then carpet…then floor…then carpet…DANNY! I bet that was tough following him around with a camera.

A month in and he is still getting breakfast in bed…that shit would have ended the first week.

Scott is grossed out by dipping bacon in runny yolks.

“You did real good keeping the place straight…but who the hell put all them ball marks on the wall? and what the hell…on the ceiling!”

The Overlook Maze sure has a lot of lights?

What would you do if you have a gigantic hotel to roam?

  • I would sleep in a different room every night and never make up the bed.

He is the master of puppets looking over the maze…cool transition from model to overhead shot.

“Tuesday” – Bonk!

talking about 1968 shooting…missing lady with her husband…fore shading?

No room 237…no!

This kid is a great actor…or perhaps Kubrick is a great director…or maybe both.

You can just feel Shelley Duvall coming to wreck is day with her bubbli-ness.

Shelley Duvall telling me not to be grouchy would make me grouchy.

You are distracting me!

“Thursday” – No fanfare

The Tea Kettle noise indicates the shining in Danny and his father’s case.

“Saturday” – The shining bleeds in.

The Shining…brought to you by 7up

Over…Over…this conversation is dumb…over.

Danny…come play with us…forever and ever…also, this is the wing that has the really shitty wallpaper.

It’s just like Peaches in the book?

“Monday” no fanfare

What is Danny & his mom watching in the lobby? It’s a lot of coffee talk….I mean a lot of coffee talk. Right before lunch…but dad is still sleeping and Danny wants his fire truck! Don’t…wake…Daddy…now that is scary..

Oh hi dad! It looks like you are awake!

The worst…the abusive dad…who shows you some attention…

Echo’s of the twins…I wish we could stay here forever and ever…

Danny is asking the hard questions. “You wouldn’t hurt me and mommy would you?”

“Wendnesday” cymbals crash

Pink and blue and green was a popular color for toys in Danny’s collection.

Danny has an Apollo sweater on…crocheted…did his mom knit that? Is he going to the moon?

Who da hell opened 237!!

So Dad has just become totally useless now…so mom has to go do all the work in the dirty overalls.

Jack Torrance is having day terrors!

Grote…Jack had some slobbering going on.

Damnit Wendy! I told you not to come in here when I am screaming!

Most horrible dream he has ever had.

Wendy’s comfort is even unbearable

 

Dreaming of killing your family…and chopping them up…might want to keep that to yourself.

Wendy is surrounded by crazy.

Danny is sucking his thumb and has neck abrasions.

What? I did’t do nuffin.

The walk of crazy…slashing in the air…

The bartender who is not there…or a ghost…how about a robot? Passengers?

uh oh…he sold his soul right there at the bar….would give  his soul for a glass of beer. Lloyd…

2  20s in his pocket. Nope

White Man’s Burden.

He said 5 miserable months on the wagon…but that doesn’t jive if he was at 5 months at closing according to Wendy. It’s been at least a month or more at the hotel.

Jack still maintains he would never hurt Danny…and is convinced that Wendy will never forgive him. But he can’t forgive himself. 3 years ago….after Danny threw his papers all over the floor.

Jack is twitchy…

via GIPHY

What is Wendy running from?

Jack goes to sleep like Danny when he talks to Lloyd.

Wendy saw a lady try to strangle Danny.

Channel 10 in Miami…and some Chef feet. Maybe gross for Scott?

Chef has a luxurious lady with a boufant hairdo over the TV and another one over his bed. Yeah he is single. Meanwhile back in Colorado…bad weather…

Halloran is having a moment in room 237 thanks to Danny’s call out powers…more drool

Those Chicago people who came in and decorated have horrible taste in colors

or is that just room 237

Naked lady in the tub! Hot damn says Jack! Man she is tall. Pretty tame bush for early 80s

Slow motion naked lady is just what Jack ordered.

That bathroom has no toilet paper.

Would you let a fairly attractive naked lady touch you and kiss you in a bathroom.

I thought those sores were tattoos at first.

That old lady has been doing some lady ‘scaping down there.

How many numbers you going to dial Scatman?

Wendy snorts when she cries

Ahh come on Jack…you don’t want to tell your wife about making out with the old lady shape shifter?

So is the lady is 237 the crazy man’s wife? She looks too old for that. Is she another lady?

Maybe Danny did it to himself? yeah..that’s it!

Danny is silent screaming.

Shoveling out Driveways…Working at the carwash…are those his only other qualifications?

Damnit Wendy….you screw up everything.

He is tearing through the kitchen…you think Scatman is going to clean that up?  Hell nah.

Navajo artwork on the walls and ballons in the halls

I’m the chef at the Overlook Hotel…and I need to talk to the Hotel! He did bring it around to relevance by saying his worry was about them starving to death…LIKE THE DONNOR PARTY!

We are implying a party during the 20s…they heyday of the hotel perhaps?

Hair of the dog that bit me…Burbon on the rocks.

No charge? My money is no good eh? Orders from the house, huh?

Who is buying my drinks Lloyd? Who’s the puppet master? Doesn’t matter yet Jack.

What was the waiter serving? Advocaat? It stains…is it made of jizz? cause I just wiped mine off on you Jeeves.

Red bathroom is red.

Delbert Grady was the first caretaker at the Overlook under Ullman’s management, in the winter of 1970-71. Like Jack, he was an alcoholic. Also like Jack, he tries to murder his family – a wife and two young daughters. Unlike Jack, he succeeds.

I know who you are Mr. Grady

This is my house Jack!

There is about to be a Caretaker Battle in the Red Room

Jack has always been the caretaker according to 20s Grady.

Grady reveals Danny is trying to bring in the chef…and they said the N word 3 times in a row! That in a bathroom…that is sure to summon Candyman.

Grady reveals that Danny has a great talent.

Danny is a very willful boy.

Jack blames Wendy for interfering with his will.

One of Grady’s kids tried to burn down something…then Grady “corrected” them.

 

Who really unlocked the door? Was it Danny/Tony since Danny was in a trance at the time? Or was it the spirit of Grady?

Mirroring is prominent in this movie…from Redrum (murder) to shots in mirrors..to Danny mirroring his father?

You would think they would take all the axes with them during Winter break

Damn tiny bathroom windows….give me a full window please!

What Kubrick had to say on The Shining: http://www.visual-memory.co.uk/amk/doc/interview.ts.html

Dick was on his bed minding his own business in Miami…watching TV and being turned on  by his 70s wall hangings of foxxy ladies. When he gets a person to person head call from the white kid in the cold snowy mountain.  He then places a call to the mountain Rangers. Hops a plane. Rents a car. Calls in a favor to get a snow cat. Braves a blizzard. Walks the halls of a huge hotel. Takes an axe to the chest. Dies. Should have stayed in bed.

Theory: Danny transfers his conscience into Dick and rides his body all the way back to the hotel.  When Danny contacts Dick; Tony occupies Danny’s body until Dick arrives at the hotel and is axed. At which time Jack starts calling for Danny and he takes off.

Escape From New York (1981) – Show Notes

Intro:

Oh hi! This week’s movie is one of them Future/Past dealies. You know, where they make a film in 1981 but it takes place in 1998 but you are watching it in 2017 and you are thinking how it is going to be at least 2018 before the president builds a wall around New York. You know….one of them movies.

Also, did you ever consider: this is a movie about a one-eyed Snake being inserted into a dirty hole who is just trying to pull out before his head explodes? Dirty Carpenter is always dirty. 400%

This is Remy.

LISC Liberty Island Security Control.

Chopper 8 needs ome acction.

“Hey you don’t wanna walk around down there snake..” – Something that has never been said before.

Hey, I just realized….Snake Pliskin on has one good eye. That makes him a one eyed snake.

Hey nice boots chief…I’m walking

Ernest P. Whorl is the President?

President is easy to find. He’s in a big red egg. Unless he left the egg…in which case you are screwed.

A lot of people running around like roaches before our oblivious hero.

Black Tank Top / Camo Leotrads and Ski boots.

I like how Carpenter plays with the running animals as danger approaches. More like rats or roaches scurring

These bulding are made out of rotten timber

Snake…you busted your locater Snake…hey Snake.

Cabbie who always shows up…Moltovs!

Can’t wait to tell Eddie

She is stroking that gun

I like that they went through all the trouble of making a clock that is labeled back at the headquarters for the countdown.

Scott Johnson made me laugh with this

Booo…Snake…Booo

He crawled into the cage pretty willingly. I would crawl back out once I saw giant diaper man.

The Duke wants a snake pliskin hood ornament.

Round 1 is wooden bats.

Why did they dress the president up as a lady.
