Hereeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee's Johnny!!

Right now I am in the middle of watching Stanley Kubrick's The Shining. This is a very interesting movie staring Jack Nicholson. He plays a writer named Jack Torance, who has to move with his family to take of a hotel with his wife and son. When they get there, they are given a tour and shown where everything is. While Jack's wife Wendy and son Danny are on the tour of the kitchen and pantry area, one of the workers figures out that Danny has "The Shining."
While watching this movie each character has a different problem that helps define them.
The character of Jack is a struggling author, who is a drunk who has trouble controlling his demons. He cannot keep the demon of drinking under control, because he starts drinking and becomes violent again after telling Wendy that he wouldn't.
Wendy seems to be a loving wife, who is over trusting and very worry some. She is worried about their son Danny, and the habits that Jack falls into while at the isolated hotel. Wendy seems to be the character you can't stand, but you want to see what she does any way. I know that people will not agree with me, but this is how I feel.
Danny is the son that has some troubles. One thing you find out is that he has "a boy that lives in his mouth." He is always seen riding around the hotel on his big wheel. While he is doing that he always sees this two twin girls.
There will be a continuation of this blog when I finish the movie.
