EDITOR'S NOTE: According to a Warner Home Video technician involved in the production of The Stanley Kubrick Collection, Kubrick authorized all aspects of the Collection, from the use of Digital Component Video (or "D-1") masters originally approved in 1989, to the use of minimalist screen menus, chapter stops, and (in the case of 2001: A Space Odyssey and The Shining on DVD) supplementary materials. Full-screen presentation of The Shining and Full Metal Jacket was also approved by Kubrick, who recomposed his original framing, reportedly believing that those films looked best on video in the full-screen format. (In fact, the original theatrical aspect ratio of The Shining was 1.66:1, meaning that a relatively small portion of the image is lost.) Kubrick also chose mono over stereo, believing that inconsistencies in theatrical sound systems resulted in loss of control over theatrical presentation. In every respect, the Warner spokesman said, the films in the Collection remain as Kubrick approved them. Any future attempt to remaster or alter them would have to be approved by an appointee of the Kubrick estate.
This movie is one of the best films ever made that is based on a Stephen King book.
It's for these reasons that make it understandable why "The Shining" is one of those horror movies that even non-horror fans can really like.
For me, that one horror film was this masterpiece, Stanley Kubrick's "THE SHINING".
This adaptation really doesn't match the book very well. Kubrek changed the film so much that it seems poor Jack just went crazy from being cooped up in the hotel during the... Read morePublished 18 hours ago by Jraptor

What's not to love about the original? They did a good job remastering the movie for the blu-ray release.Published 12 days ago by W. Westlake

|The USA release is 144 minutes!||
I wish there was a way to see the first version that was released in the states that includes a scene in the hospital with Wendy, Danny and Ullman. I remember seeing the movie in the theaters with my dad, but we must have gone after Kubrick pulled the movie and cut that scene out.

|US commentary vs UK?||
I can confirm since I bought both U.S. 144min. version on DVD , then Blu-Ray , and U.K. 119min. version on DVD that the commentary track is the same one on both

|Like Kubrick's version better than the 1997 longer tv version? I...||
I do like both, but I like the 1980 version better. While Stephen King is a better storyteller (imho), Stanley Kubrick is a better filmmaker (imho). In addition to that, the budget and acting talent push the 1980 version over the top. Since we're on it though, Stephen King actually initiated the... Read More
