May Update: ‘The Collection’ Shake-Up & Introduction of ‘Casting’

News

  • The Collection – No longer posts on the third Monday of the month, and Favorite Thespians has now overtaken that spot. The Collection is now getting a new format as well. Writing about one movie a month without reviewing it just did not work for me. Now, instead, at some point late in every month I’ll be releasing a The Collection-update, in which I’ll jot down five films that have been added to the list.
  • Casting: Who Should Play Who? – For a while now, I’ve been loving writing about who I’d cast as this character or that character in this or that movie. So, I decided to make a series of posts about that very idea. Casting will be taking on the fourth Monday of every month-spot.

If you have any questions, ideas for The Collection, or suggestions for Casting, then please leave a comment below.

The Collection #4 – The Shining

Danny Torrance - The Shining - The Collection

  • The Shining (1980) – Directed by Stanley Kubrick.

The Shining is a bona fide horror classic, and my favorite horror film of all-time. It is a terrifying tale that will definitely stick with you. The Shining is the newest member of the so-called Collection, and I therefore deem it a must-watch film.  (more…)
