    What do you think - are those references really there in the film? Or are the critics just reading too much into it?[/QUOTE]

    What other situations? What other book that was as deeply autobiographical to King as The Shining was adapted in a similarly irreverent fashion?

    I agree the miniseries was pretty weak, King made a mistake in insisting on writing the screenplay and then having Mick Garris direct it. Flanagan would have been perfect for it if they tried it...

    I don't agree with everything King says but Kubrick's The Shining ruined Jack and Wendy and outright disrespected Halloran. Given how autobiographical Jack was to King I can understand why he'd be...

    Disappointed but not surprised that they're using the Kubrick film as a point of reference. As for King giving the go-ahead, he seems to be giving carte blanch approval to nearly everything nowadays...
