Mr. Grady, you were the caretaker here. I recognize ya. I saw your picture in the newspapers. You, uh, chopped your wife and daughters up into little bits. And then you blew your brains out.

He did, but I think he came to the realization that it was the combination of his book and Kubrick's movie that is the legend.

You cannot separate the two. You cannot read The Shining and NOT see Jack Nicholson, Shelly Duvall, Scatman Caruthers - though the plot is different, it's still the Overlook, it's still mostly the same, creepy-as-hell story.

There is potential for a truly great flick here. I'm REALLY hoping they re-cast Nicholson for Dr. Sleep. If you've read the book, you know where.

I remember King made his own version of the Shining with, I believe, Stephen Weber where (***SPOILER ALERT***) he paints Jack in a much better light who redeems himself at the end. He also has Danny's finger friend Tony as an a human imaginary friend who winds up being an older version of Danny.

all the movies of his books. The whole ad campaign for Maximum Overdrive was that he was finally making a King movie the right way. Of course MO sucked and he hated The Shining, The Dead Zone, and Carrie. So he probably should have stuck to books...

Yes, it was Steven Weber with Rebecca DeMornay as Wendy.

King was mad because the movie's characterization of Jack is different than the way King wrote him.

To see Dr. Sleep.
I think that I saw an ad or something for a remake of The Shining.

Coming soon, I believe.

Or I might have been imagining things.

Random note, Wendy Darling always makes me think of Peter Pan.

Yep, and I really like Ewan McGregor. It looks good from the trailer.

And random and seemingly incongruous, but those who analyzed the film found a lot of subliminal symbols and messages and even a few Easter eggs throughout the film.

King centered the book on the hotel itself, the hotel was an evil entity. Kubrick made it all about Jack - and added multiple subliminal themes that had nothing to do with Kings book, including the genocide of native American's.

The film version of the Shining is an absolute work of genius. One of my top-3 all-time films.

This review of The Shining is deep, thought provoking and flat-out great for fans. Kubrick left dozens of Easter eggs in that flick.

Funny how many people hated it when it came out  
Stan in LA : 10/17/2019 12:22 pm : link
I saw it the day it came out and half the audience was booing at the end.

But, by seeing it the first day, I saw a different ending than everyone else. Quite interesting.

That's the case with a lot of classic films. They're box-office flops that wind up becoming a cult classic and then eventually getting national recognition.

I loved Big Lebowski when it first came out, but everyone I knew thought it was stupid and the movie flopped.

Now everyone and their mother is quoting it.

Office Space was a flop at the box office, only made $12 million. Idiocracy was barely even released at all, only playing at something like 100 theaters and made about $500K.

I believe they re-shot those scenes, coming so close to the original that it looks like they used the old footage.

I might be mistaken, though.

Not going to happen. He hasnít acted in a decade, reportedly due to memory issues.

I'm the opposite. I had read the book well before the movie was made and I loved it. I was disappointed by the movie but probably more for the lack of fidelity than for the quality of the movie itself. Same for The Stand. I read the book and it was probably my favorite book ever up to that point, but when I later saw the movie, I didn't really like it.

I recall reading that Alfred Lutter, who played Ogilvie in The Bad News Bears, earned a couple of degrees from Stanford and is an executive with some media company. So, basically, he pretty much grew up as Ogilvie would have:).

I saw a video on Dr. Sleep. Apparently the director wanted Dr. Sleep to be a sequel to both the King's book, and Kubrick's movie, all in one. He wove together some of the differences between the two as the back story. They also recreated sets based on Kubrick's Overlook Hotel. I can't wait to see it.
