    "I think this is the best version of the Shining that has come on the big screen. While I know it wasn't very true to the book, this version was great in its own right. Jack Nicholson's performance was stellar, as was all the other actors. I'm not the best at giving detailed movie reviews and will save that for others, but if you want a movie that will scare you and creep you out, I suggest giving this movie a shot (assuming you haven't seen it already)."

    "OK, I’m a bit prejudiced toward this album because I saw the movie in the theater when it came out. Not long after, I was rockin’ the soundtrack tape through tinny headphones of my Sony Walkman, while cutting North Stars logos into my family’s lawn. Yeah, those were the good ole days…Batman wasn’t Ben Affleck, and Prince was still alive. This album is super dooper cool. I would buy it without hesitation. "

    "I recently rewatched arguably my favorite movie of all time called Easy Rider (1969). This movie is a classic which features the famous actors Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, and Jack Nicholson. The movie revolves around a philosophical journey among two bikers who are traveling from Los Angeles to New Orleans. The themes Easy Rider explored continue to be relevant today. The movie explores the price humans pay for existing in a industrialized and capitalistic society. The movie focuses on philosophy, alienation, and searching for ones purpose through the motorcycle adventure and American landscape. Amazing movie, you will truly enjoy it!"
