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".
As a big Stephen King fan, I loved the book version of The Shining better than the movie. Yes, it's good, but not true to the book, and I realize that most people love this movie. Read morePublished 1 day ago by D. Martinek
