I'm sure to get people angry by saying this, but I much prefer the 1997 miniseries Stephen King's The Shining to the 1980 Stanley Kubrick version.
Why? Because the 1997 version had an understandable plot. The original movie was a mishmash of scary images, none of which really gelled into a storyline. In the 1997 miniseries, I understood what was going on.
That is all.
