- the 80s Shining or the '97 Shining?

And why?

I'll make a confession. I never saw either one. Another confession: I'm not a Jack Nicholson fan. I didn't even like him as the Joker. The only movie I liked him in was - believe it or not - Terms of Endearment. (Which, by the way, came out in 1983, which makes it on topic for us. Actually, a lot of Nicholson films are on topic for us. Hmm.)

I'm also not a Stephen King fan. The only Stephen King novel I like is It. (Which, by the way, came out in 1986, which makes it on topic for us. Actually, a lot of Stephen King novels and their adaptations in various media are on topic for us. Hmm.)


1. I don't think King's works have ever done well on (pre-internet) TV after Salem's Lot. TV became too restrictive after the 70s. At best, his TV movies are best seen as extra-long commercials for his books.

Erm... not that his movies have always been great...

2. I think the actors were much better, and in particular, I think Weber was the death knell the TV version.
3. Ultimately, I think Kubrick spins a story even better than Stephen King.
4. I ♥ Jack!
