Best DVD version
Kubrick specifically shot his films in fullscreen, so they could be matted in theaters for widescreen and air on TV without cropping. Smart guy - but this has led to confusion on DVD releases of his films, which usually only feature the fullscreen version. However this 2-disc special edition of "The Shining" features the theatrical matted version, enhanced for widescreen TVs and also includes lots of bonus material. Get it!

The BEST Stanley Kubrick film of ALL TIME!
This is absolutly the BEST Stanley Kubrick film of ALL TIME! Jack Nicholson is EXCELLENT in his roll as the father. I really love the way that the film shows Jack Nicholson's character falls deeper and deeper into madness. Shelley Duvall also does an EXCELLENT job of playing the devoted, and later, terrified wife.
Additionally, the cinematography in the film is EXCELLENT in using various odd angles. Including some shots like the ones where the camera follows the son as he rides his Wheely down the halls of the hotel.

"Great Horror Film!"
Jack Nicholson and Shelly Duvall star in Stanley
Kubrick's 1980 horror film based on Stephen King's
book. An old hotel makes a writer insane when he
takes over as the caretaker. This is a great film
and definitely one of Jack's best. This special
edition has nice picture and sound plus neat
extras. Get this classic.

Best psycho-horror movie of all time.
This is one of my favorite books of all time! The movie is very different from the book, but the message of the story is just as creepy and well told, just in a different artistic manner. One of Kubrik's best best BEST films.
