: I feel that part of the let-down for me was that I read the book first and
: was judging the movie agenst the book. I though it was a great book, and
: that the movie was a mere good movie. I dodn;t think that "the
: Shining" is a book that could ever translate well into a movie
: because so much of it is inside Jacks head, not in action or dialouge. I
: thought the Steve King movie did a better job of following the book, hence
: when camparing it to he book, I found it it be better. On the other hand,
: it was six hours long and still wasn't nearly as good as the book. Like
: TwelveMotion said, some things just don't translate the way you want them
: to.

i saw the movie first and liked it alot. i still like it, even after reading the book, but it's nowhere near as good. that's why i'm hesitant to see movies based on books.. the bourne movies come to mind. the book is still way better than the 6-hour made-for-tv movie, but there were parts of it (the movie) that i liked better than the book. but yeah, it's hard to translate king to visual form, since so much is thought.
