    Yes watch the Kubrik one. Very good movie. Just never watch the Stephen Webber TV Movie version. It is horrid.

    It wasn't horrid. It was just good in a different way. Don't get me wrong, I prefer the Kubrick movie by a million, bazillion miles. But the tv movie is much closer to the novel.

    I've seen it. It was terrible. Bad acting, dumb effects, etc. Same overall plot yes. But Kubrik does it well. Plus you avoid dumb lines like "Kissin' kissin' thats what i've been missin'"

    King prefers the TV version.. which i kinda sad.

    The low budget tv effects are definitely bad. I disagree completely about the acting, though. Weber's version of Jack's transformation is handled much more gradually and subtly. De Mornay's Wendy is much more rounded than Duvall's one-note shrill victim. Kubrick's movie has a better cast of big name actors who all turn in riveting performances, but it's a mistake to think the acting in the mini series was bad.

    I can understand why King prefers the tv version, although I don't agree.

    Same here. I enjoy both for different reasons, while acknowledging the Kubrick one as a superior movie. But I do have fond memories of watching the parts of the TV movie as they premiered with my grandmother, who was big into reading and horror, so that's something that can't be replicated.

    King hasn't had a good idea since the coke and booze burnt out half his brain.
