His performance is better than the movie. But I still really like the movie.

I can give you that, I've just always felt it was an average movie to a fantastic book.

Kubrick's The Shining is an extraordinary film, but a poor adaptation.

I also think in comparison to the rest of Kubrick's work, it sits pretty low on the pole.

Really? I haven't seen The Shining in a while, but I always thought it was a great film. Kubrick has a handful of better ones, but The Shining never seemed poor in any way to me.

The Shining is the best film on the list.

It may be overrated Kubrick, but it is far superior to Full Metal Jacket.

The Shining is probably my favorite Nicholson performance.

The Shining for sure. However, I did not expect that large of a nearly 100% Shining result, though.
