THE SHINING (1997)

 

ARE YOU SERIOUSLY GOING TO BUY THIS?

 

Of all the shit film adaptations Stephen King has endured over the years, the one he had a problem with was Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece THE SHINING. Flash forward to 1997, and we now have a TV mini-series, with Steven Weber replacing Jack Nicholson, and Mick Garris replacing Stanley Kubrick. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to do the math.

 

Granted, I haven’t seen this. Perhaps it’s simply wonderful and renders the Kubrick version obsolete. I will never know, and you can’t fucking make me.
