Aw HELLLLL NO

The book had a ton of fantastic imagery that the film just couldn't possibly reproduce. The movie did have Jack Nicholson, but sometimes (rarely) that's just not enough.

I disagree.

Speaking of which, what's the opinion on The Shining? I've never read the book but I saw both the original film and the 2000-ish miniseries.

Never read the book, either. Jack makes that movie, though.
