    I'm not sure even an awesome movie like Kubrick's the Shining can compare to an Awesome book like Kings The Shining.

    Book wins every time but damn that movie was good.

    I don't even compare the two anymore.
    In my mind, there's STEPHEN KING'S The Shining and then there's STANLEY KUBRICK'S The Shining.
    Even though Kubrick borrowed chunks of the plot from SK's novel, it's almost an entirely different animal in style and structure.

    I have the film and I prefer the book because the spanish film isn't dubt good. The voice of Jack's wife is terrible and the voice of Jack is the same and it's a grief because I like the film

    The Shining has always been one of my favorite books. Way better than the movie named after it. Kubrick's The Shining is somewhat entertaining for what it is, but I never really cared for it. I liked the mini-series much better than Kubrick's version, but the book is just soooo much better!

    No director can truly capture Stephens ability to convey a message directly to the readers imiganintion. Many different readers get many different messages, a director only takes their understanding and puts it to the public. It is not the directors fault, they just can't transcribe Stephens story to a movie, it is like impossible, is there a movie of Kings that was as good as the book? I am not saying here wasn't I would like to know if ther was or is?
