Not if you’ve read the book. Kubrick totally fucked it up. If you just try to forget that there even is a book, it’s really good, although that’s just my opinion, which is why you should stop asking if movies are “any good.” There are many people on this board with many different opinions and tastes in movies. Asking if something is “any good” is just gonna make it even harder for you to decide whether to see it or not. So either watch the fuckin movie, or don’t.
