On Friday night we watched The Shining. Not the Simpsons version – the far less scary original starring Jack Nicholson.

I haven’t seen the film in years, so can’t remember most of it. Like with Jaws last week, various observations were made while watching.

Firstly, the most freaky thing out the whole film was Jack’s wife. There was something about her which simply scared the shit out of me. Her eyes seemed to be far too big for her skull and her behaviour was more disturbing than when Nicholson picked up the axe. No wonder he was driven to insanity.

The second observation was this so called ‘shining’ between the kid and the chef. If they had this connection, why didn’t Danny tell the cook to call upon Arnold Schwarzenegger on his way back to the hotel. Arnie could have brought an AK47 with him and blasted Jack and all the crazy ghosts into a pool of blood. Instead the chef (predictably) gets killed.

Finally – if you know anyone who has never seen the film before, preferably someone with a family, show them this trailer and convince them they must watch it with their kids.

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
