Kubrick's version of The Shining was fantastic. It was a work of art, but IMO, it was not SK's The Shining. It was more like an interpretation on it. SK's Shining was so much more in depth and so much better. Kubrick glossed over much that made the story great in the name of a shorter film. I love the mini-series because it really stays true to the original story. That said, Steven Weber was great, but he couldn't top Nicholson. I liked Rebecca DeMornay much better than Shelley Duvall. I felt Wendy was too weak and helpless in Kubrick's version, and Duvall just got on my nerves after awhile.
