That's probably the best avatar I've seen in a while.  Well... at least most original.

I saw The Shining yesterday, after a long time. Now I totally get it (the whole Kubrick deal), and yes, I agree, he's very clever, supremely so. Thank you to all the Kubrickians whose devotion has prompted my curious investigation over the past months, 'cause there's nothing like this feeling. It also makes this topic area superbly ironic, and that has to be reason enough for it to stay.

But Stanley, babe, you should get into a very sweaty fuck and/or a fistfight. I guarantee you'll feel so much better.

a clockwork orange, eyes wide shut, and dr. strangelove register the most for me and are thus my favourite kubrick films.

2001 is probably his best, and maybe my favorite, but right now I am most mezmerized by Eyes Wide Shut and Full Metal Jacket.

I think it's time for you to revisit Full Metal Jacket, probably his clever-est movie. Depending on what cleverness you're talking about.

Yes. Yes I will.

Note to self: always take Jeremy's advice in matters relating to Kubrick.

Question: I was right to be laughing, right? I mean, just rewire the fucking distributor cap and you're outta there!  :roll:

Edit: this post made me lose my grip!

I just saw 'The Shining' and it was awesome!  A beautiful film and very scary.  It's not my favorite (yet....you know how Kubrick films do) but it is great!

Shining was my first Kubrick film. When I was 7, I was extremely afraid of horror movies and wanted to get over that fear, so me and my mom went and rented a whole bunch of horror movies. Shining was at the top of my list. It was, and will always be, my favorite Kubrick.

i know iím gonna get killed, but i think kubrick is a bit overrated. i donít deny that he was a very skilled director and he made some truly amazing films (strangelove, clockwork), but a good deal of them i find particularly un-exceptional.

You should see Full Metal Jacket (never taken seriously enough) and Barry Lyndon (never seen at all) before you draw any conclusions.

i've actually seen both. now we i say that i find a lot of his movies "un-exceptional," that is not to say that I think they are bad films.

as for 2001, i found some of it to be brilliant, but as a whole I just didnít like it too much.
