The film has interesting theories about Kubrick's film The Shining, however many of the theories can be found easily online while some of the theories posed in this documentary are wildly outlandish and ridiculous that it seems implausible and begs the question of why it was even included in the final documentary.

It's just isn't well made to say the least, in fact some of the interviews are particularly bad not just in terms of content but in terms of quality.

The main issue with the OUYA in my opinion is that even though its running on a modified skin of the android OS it doesn't support nearly as much games or even general apps as my android phone does (and it was bought last summer, but it still holds it own in playing most if not all the games on the… Read more
