Oh hi, Yes Sir Mr. President, per your orders, we dropped that bomb on those filthy cold war Russians. But I’m saddened to report sir… that we had some pretty unexpected results… Instead of dirty burnt radiated Ruskies it appears all we did was make their hair fuller and shinier. They couldn’t be happier when we flew back by. Where did you say we got that plutonium from? Ithaca?
Yes, Hello…is this Kremlin? This is top secret KGB agent reporting in. I have just returned from American nuclear facility in Ithaca. I have brought with me samples of American plutonium. I must say the mission was easier than we had imagined. Ronald Regan American’s are so over confident of their security that they left full sample on a table unguarded. However, if this sample represents the full force of the American’s might then we can sleep well comrade. Early tests have shown that their plutonium is not a very effective explosive. I feel so safe with this container that I slept with it under my pillow last night. I was surprised to discover this morning that it had sprung a leak during my slumber. When I woke up I was sure that I would have radiation sickness. But instead my hair has never been fuller or shinier. and smell it….oh…this is a phone joke.
Yeah I know that’s not how that works. But this movie could be called “That’s not how any of this works…now get out of my glove box KidGyver.
Brian doesn’t think he wants to live in a future where robots refer to themselves in the third person and announce every directive, program and subroutine. Robot powering on. Robot defragging. Robot rebooting.
What if robots today announced what they were doing while they were doing it. “Roomba is cleaning Johnson house. Roomba is sucking a lot of Chili-Cheese Fritos. Roomba does not think this is a normal amount of Chilli-Cheese Frito debris. Please kill Roomba.”
and what’s up with the Robot trash talk. When Joey attacks Robbie he exclaims. “That was a mistake!”?
Who wrote the re-programming for Robot…Joey Image? “That was a mistake brother…Can you smell what the Robot is cooking?”
Fat head hologram. I hope the future of holograms is Giant Heads.
So their whole plan to kill him was contingent that he would not try to remove the bad Ziggy device from his suit?
Hey! We built a thing…in the top of this building.
Who made those uniforms? They are kind of form fitting…feels a little too close to bat nipples costuming.
Hard to take Le Blanc serious.
I think Le Blanc could have been an action hero. What other action roles could Joey have tackled?
Stasis in movies. Is that how Stasis would really work? What’s the science here?
Up is go…on your command…I am cool man…that is part of the job…sounding like a radio guy.
“and the monkey flips the switch” – Major
I see even in 2050 we like making space junk. Poof…you made a lot more ship than we need.
“Taking the family camper on an interstellar road trip”
The Statis conundrum. Do you all go to sleep? Is 10 years really a reason.
What kind of robot announces it’s program. I mean I love it…but it’s kind of stupid. Executing Program. Empty Trash. Defragging. Shutting Down.
What if all robots announced what they were doing while they were doing it. “Roomba is cleaning room. Roomba is sucking dirt. Roomba is turning.”
Forgot about Oldman and LeBlanc being on friends episode where he is the actor who spits for effect
Robot trash talk. “That was a mistake!” Who wrote the re-programming for Robbie…a wrestler.. “That was a mistake brother…Can you smell what the Robbie is cooking?” Who wrote the robot wrester subroutine?
Us humans typically place robots kill switched in the neck.
DESTROY! DESTROY! (echo “Destroy” goto line 1)
“Robot return to docking back and power down…also, stop being a dick.”
That is one serious barber chair. In what scenario would you need a chair like that that extends to the ceiling.
Can’t get Judy out. She got a big old booty and it is frozen to her statsis bed.
Either that uniform sucks or it does not. Can you do CPR over it? if you can…it sucks for protection. If you cannot..then take it off.
For a professor he is kind of dumb…”we are way off course.”
Trope: If you can’t pull away…go through…or slingshot around.
Time floaty freeze…jump!
Anywhere…but here…you got to go!
Plot Twist! Lost….wait for it…in…. Space?
ohh…what’s that? A Battle Scar…. nope…a tattoo…apparently Tattoo removal procedures still suck in the future. Better to do a cover up.
She don’t know how tattoos work. She thinks you can cover them with magic marker.
“Some lucky little nerd you left behind.”
Anomoly in progress! A hole in space…and where does it lead?
“I’ll wait later.” I’ll wait to wait.
Joey shows up… “if this is a dream…why can’t there be more girls.”
United Global Spaceforce…UGS
Penny has the hots for Major West.
“Ta Ta…have a wonderful trip.” – The Doctor.
Will hacked into his cpu to scare his dad. “Hey dad! Remember that time Robot nearly killed us all…Destroy Destroy…ha ha ha…good times.” – Will totally not looking for attention.
Robot jump scare.
Now he is just a droid and no longer a robot. You castrated Robbie’s AI.
I do not like it when Evil is aware that it is Evil. I prefer the oblivious evil. “Oh…I’m the evil one…bummer.”
A future ship piloted by Majors old wingman.
Smith is always messing with robots.
Would love to know all the names that Dr. Smith calls the robot.
Major discovered a space monkey.
What kind of Alien ship has spiders and monkeys
Banana Beef. is that a joke about the custard Rachael made in friends.
I would be concerned if Monkey likes Banana Beef.
“I don’t like the sound of that sound”
Robbie Robot says “Mom says get the hell out of there.”
Controls are too slow…gonna need me some holographic interface.
“ewww…they eat their wounded.” – Will
is there anything worse than Space Spiders?

Spider scratch…that ain’t gonna be good.
“Save him! Of course…I’ll put it on a cd-rom! The technology of the future!”
A fast DNA reader….that would be cool.
Major is not good at waiting.
Doctor. Professor. Major. Children. Wife.
As humans…we are always crash landing on habitable planets.
The pod and chariot are scrap metal.
Wife says go for the pissing contest. Has anything ever been solved in a pissing contest…and what are the rules? How do you win?
Technology of the future looks like technology of the past when you get to the insides.
Let’s name the space monkey Blarp…that sounds like a girls name.
Smith has always been good at causing dissent.
“Sarcasm is the recourse of a feeble mind.” -Major
Porky Pig and Bugs Bunny are future past things. Along with Raid, Tupperware, baseball and bad chicken jokes.
Oh hi and welcome Cadets to Project X or as I like to call it Project “What Could Possibly Go Wrong.” Here we have assembled an elite force of Air Force pilots to train a team of carefully vetted primates who we will be working with to test the effects of radiation exposure on pilots in case of a second strike scenario.
Just kidding, we actually gathered the Bad News Bears of flying military personnel to train some chimps picked by a guy on a dock somewhere… what was wearing a “sorting hat.” We then takes those chimps and have them fly through some “bad juju” complete with a Jack In The Box style Global Thermal Nuclear Device that I use to heat my coffee. Shall we play a game? Goliath, my coffee is getting cold. Give it 2 more rads, ya damn dirty ape.
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 Shining (1980) – Like shoving popcorn down your pants. You’ll be thinking about it for decades. I could really use some floss.

May 15-Oct 30th The Season
25 mile stretch of road.
Built in 1907…no interest in Winter sports. Early 80s…we wanted to ski!
From Denver…3.5 hours away.
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.
I hope you can appreciate…that I felt like I needed to tell you that.
Wife is a ghost story and horror film addict
Tony is clairvoyant…Tony don’t want to tell you why you don’t want to go to the hotel.
Smelled anything funny or saw flashing bright lights while brushing your teeth?
Tony is a little boy who lives in my mouth.
Where doe Tony hide? In your stomach?
I don’t want to talk about Tony anymore!
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.
3 months in Denver.

Everything Shelley Duvall always sounds sarcastic when she is impressed
The Overlook started in 1907 finished 1909 built on a indian burial ground
Pink and Gold are my favorite colors! Shelley
Remove the booze! When we leave!
Dick is the head chef…and ohhh that is just great.
Suzy gets coffee and retrieves your kids when they get lost.
Are you a Winnie or a Fred? Nope…Wendy!
You like Ham Doc? My name is Danny..
Dick is about to tell Doc about The Shinning
Grandma had The Shining…I got the Shining…and you got the shinning too Danny.
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
You are scared of Room 237…No I ain’t
Stay out of 237
“A Month Later”
We got this whole hotel. I’m going to make use of the food cart!
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 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: https://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.
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%
Mmmm….me here today cause Cookie Monster trapped by suburban Witch? Notice cookies on floor of cage look more ‘crushed’ than ”e’ate’…look like furry blue Muppet with no functioning esophagus went to tooowwn. Me like Mick Jagger, can’t get no… can’t get no satisfaction.
