- 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.)


The 80s Shining is a masterpiece. Kubrick producing and directing a great Steven King novel with Nicholson and all at the top of their game. Also Shelly Duval really turned in a great performance. Danny Lloyd was creepy and sympathetic at the same time. It baffles me that Mr. King never liked this movie. The 90s version was closer to his book but isn't even in the ball park as the Kubrick version.
