Hm.. I didn't even know there was a sequel to the novel.

Adam Grimes
Yup. Kinda.

I hope this movie isn't as crappy as The Shining.

Impediment
Crappy? I hope you mean the most recent telemovie and not the film.

To be honest, I didn't even know there was a sequel novel to the Shining, but I'm officially interested as f*ck!

Stephen King's books are hit & miss for me; some are so white knuckle intense that I can't put the book down while others are so painfully boring that I can't get past the first quarter of the book.

I've read the Shining and loved it. Verrrrrry different from Kubrick's film, which I also adore. I might just have to start Doctor Sleep this weekend to see if I'll love it, too.

Adam Grimes
Yeah, I didn't like Kubrick's film. Maybe because I went in with too much expectations from all the praise it gets.

Yeah, the book and movie are very different but both very good.

I also agree that Stephen King is very hit or miss.

It's understated. That's why it's so good.

It's his use of the camera and the performances from the actors. He's brilliant.

Fun documentary interpretating "hidden" meanings to The Shining & other Kubrick films.

I've heard Stephen King didn't like the Kubrick Shining movie

and with the miniseries its more of a result of king's bitchy attitude towards the original Stanley Kubrick Masterpiece, I've heard it sticks closer to the novel but it was still bad.

He's supposedly has only had one good hit so far with Gerald's Game.

Then f$ck him. He's way too verbose as a writer.

The book to the sequel kinda sucked though lol. Doesn't mean the movie has to, I guess. Though movies based on Kings shit don't have the best track record.

I also don't think he has any room to judge after "Maximum Overdrive". That wasn't the usual excuse of "somebody f*cked up adapting Kings work". No, that movie was directed by King. Who cares? Shining was great thanks Stanley.

Jack was the only thing that saved the Shining Movie.

quanchi112
Nah, everything about the film was perfect.

Flyattractor
Yes. I agree. The Shining is a better movie then Infinity War.

If everything about it was perfect...how is Avengers superior?

Inf War was fun but had lots of stupid parts. So Shining Wins I guess.

Wait what? I love Kubrick and The Shining and have heard a lot about the behind the scenes drama, but never heard of Kubrick harassing King? Can you expand on that?

King generally doesn't understand what makes a good movie, he seems to resent filmmakers when they cut something out of the film that was in the book. Remember he approved of the pile of shit Shining miniseries because it was 'faithful'. He doesn't seem to understand that some things that work in a book won't work in a movie, Kubrick did understand that hence why he removed a lot of the more over the top stuff like plant monsters and shit.

Also full disclosure I'm not a fan of King as a writer, I don't like his writing style, comes off as a smart aleck during a lot of his narration and can be long winded.

Apparently he would call King up at like 2 am and shit. And berated him when they disagreed on something.

BackFire
Oh, haha. Yeah, sounds like Kubrick being Kubrick.

Same here. The Shining was one of the few novels I could stomach by him.

BackFire
It's too bad because he can come up with very cool and interesting ideas, but the way he presents them just isn't really for me.

i read doctor sleep and it was definitely not a good story, imo. and The Shining is awesome! One of my fav films tbh lol
