I thought Room 237 was ridiculously well made and interesting. Sure the theories are stupid but not liking the doc because of that is kind of a "shoot the messenger" type of reaction. I think the whole point of 237 was to show how much Kubrick and his films have effected people and the strange things that people can take out of his art.

I love it a lot.

I don't think they were stupid at all, at least some of them. Some were pretty far-fetched, but Kubrick would have been able to put that meaning even then behind those scenes.
It was all in all a great doc.

Yeah, as far-fetched as the theories may be, it just goes to prove that great cinema gets people thinking and looking for details that may or may not be there... It's all about love for the art and those people love it enough to analyze this movie in some very interesting ways.

Also... some of the things they point out in Room 237 kind of blow my mind... Next time I watch it I will have my eyes open as widely as possible.

I mean he could have done some things but I couldn't really take any of the theories seriously. The Native American & Holocaust theories seems the most plausible but they are seriously reaching on those ones as well. I haven't done any real research on anything that was presented in the film that wasn't in the film so maybe I would change my opinion If I actually did some but as it stands I didn't really feel like any of the people's claims held any weight.

It felt almost a bit horror-ish, watching all these stuff he "incorporated" in the film.
I am not into conspiracy theory shit at all, but this felt different.

I think the producers were researching a lot to backup their (admittedly) mind-boggling theories and those researches were presented in the doc as well. I give them credit to that, otherwise I wouldn't pay attention to it at all, condemning the whole film as hokuspokus from wannabe Kubrick nerds who believe that they unraveled the mystery of his mindset.

They won't, no one will.

Room 237 was aight. I didn't like how they just took other people documentaries that were already made, and just used little snippets from them, for their own.

The moon landing shit is really something... This is documentary that the moon landing footage in Room 237 is from. Seriously, check it out, it's a good watch.
