      Is it just me or is this narrators high pitched non stop tirade of information annoying??!! Is he actually editing out the parts where he takes a freaking breath before speaking again?!

          I like the director’s cut more. I think it’s because of different interpretations. In the director’s cut, Mike does redeem himself, but he dies, but he gets to be with Katie now and is at peace. In the theatrical cut, he redeems himself, lives, but has the proof. Needing the proof seems like part of his character flaw though, he can’t deal with Katie dying so he goes searching for her, and the proof being at the end still seems like just another scare put in an otherwise unmemorable “happy” ending. I see them as a complete story vs. a “scary” story. Knowing that the director’s cut was changed to the theatrical cut because of a focus group wanting a “happier” ending has biased me towards it though. Also, fun fact, there’s a third cut of the movie.

            How nice of evil ghosts to always help people get over their trauma

              I liked the one where he died at the end better because it showed he realized the error of his ways enough to reunite with his Daughter in the afterlife. The ending where he survived is the worst one because even though he reunited with his wife, the voice on the recorder wasn't his daughter but the room intimidating his daughter, there is no closure from that.

                  Jesus! Dangling participles is the true hell here. 'Coming back inside, the window slams onto his hand' : The window isn't coming back inside, the man is! 'His face obscured, yelling for him to call the police' - The MAN isn't yelling for him to call the police, Mike is! 'When trying the key, it breaks off in the lock': When WHO is trying the key? Can the writers REALLY not hear that these sentences make no grammatical sense? GOD!!!!

                    Isn’t there a 3rd ending that’s pretty difficult to find? Also, there’s the fan made “ultimate ending” which combines parts of all 3.

                      Although you may make a lot of sense, your voice is highly annoying. I found it hard to listen to for more than a minute. Sorry.

                        I kind of wondered if the first ending was implying he hadn't left 1408, the fact he actually heard the voice was a sign he hadn't left yet

                                      Luckily I was able to buy the dvd right after the movie came out where Mike lives at the end. I honestly like the ending where Mike survives more so then the ending where he dies

                                                  I do disagree about the conclusion. They make a point of saying that the room isn't a ghost and that its just evil. Similarly we can assume that all of the "ghosts" that he saw in the room were just conjured by the room itself. So our main character definitely has proof that paranormal things exist but no proof of ghosts or an afterlife specifically.

                                                            Given that all King works are 100% connected, it's pretty clear that the room was built from materials recovered from the Overlook Hotel. Stripped of most of it's spirits by Danny absorbing them, and having to build up it's strength again by tormenting and twisting new victims.

                                                                                        Also the book is his relationship with his father, not his daughter. Mike's father was a bastard and a terrible father , he fleshes that out in a hallucination. Mike decided not to be like his father but he lost his daughter anyways. In the end he was becoming the bitter old man his father was until he was tested in the room.

Room 5419?! 54-19 is 35! But the room is located on floor 5! 35/5=7! The room was booked on 07/07 so we multiply 7 time 2! 7*2=14, but we we have to remember there are 7 days of the week, BUT the room was booked on a SINGLE day WITHIN a week. Subtract that day out: 14-1 and GASP!!!! THAT EQUALS 13!!!! Like, the ghosts could make up any math to make any room of the place haunted besides just 1408 like room 0904 or 3703.

                                                                                          It's like that thing where you think you're entering room 669, but then after the haunting starts, the room starts rumbling, the door locks, and on the door's number plaque, a screw comes loose and boom. You THOUGHT you entered room 669, but the 9, now unhinged, drops to reveal that you're ACTUALLY in room 666!!! Really, whatever excuse the ghosts can come up with to justify murdering you in this one room in particular.
