    A Captivating Tale with a Gentle Touch
    In 2017, I had the pleasure of diving into the world of "It," and I must say, it was a captivating experience. While the novel wasn't as menacing as its literary counterpart, it still managed to weave a spellbinding narrative that kept me on the edge of my seat.

    One of the highlights for me was the brilliant character development. Each character felt real and relatable, making their struggles and triumphs all the more impactful. The way the story unfolded, alternating between past and present, added depth and mystery, keeping me guessing until the very end.

    The cinematography was also top-notch, capturing the eerie atmosphere of Derry perfectly. From the haunting visuals of Pennywise to the unsettling sewers, every scene was crafted with attention to detail.

    But what truly sets this adaptation apart is its ability to blend horror with heart. Beneath the scares lies a story about friendship, resilience, and facing your fears. It's a testament to the power of unity and courage in the face of darkness.

    Overall, "It" (2017) may not have been as menacing as the novel, but it stood strong as a gripping and emotionally resonant film that left a lasting impression. Highly recommended for fans of supernatural thrillers and coming-of-age tales alike.

    Great Monster Movies
    I grew up on the nineties IT tv version, I was ten when it come out and Tim Curry's IT was terrifying. I feel the nineties version stayed truer to the book, and I loved the way the characters were developed, it might be because I watched this version probably annually since it first came out and there is a lot of nostalgia that I will always prefer it to the new adaption.

    However I am not made at these two new versions. I really like the new IT, Skarsgard did an amazing job as Pennywise, I don't understand how people are bagging him out as not being scary. His mannerisms were horrifying. I also love that at its core this feels like a monster movie, I really enjoyed this aspect of the movies.

    Slightly updated, partial retelling of Stephen King's massive tome
    It's 1988, and a group of young teens in the town of Derry, Maine are terrorized by an otherworldly clown named Pennywise (Bill Skarsgard), who can make them see their worst fears. They must band together to stop the fiend before it kills them all.

    King's novel succeeded in large part due to the nostalgic immersion into Baby Boomer cultural touchstones. The filmmakers decision to update the setting to the late 1980's is understandable in the sense that the follow-up, featuring the adult versions of the characters, will now chronologically fit with modern times. The filmmakers also decide to forgo any excessive wallowing in 1980's pop iconography, with a movie poster here and a song there the only references. That boils the story down to the horror film essentials, and while there's nothing original in the mix, it is well presented, and features a handful of memorable scare moments. The special effects are also largely successful, and Skarsgard is good as the monstrous clown. The filmmakers also made the interesting decision to not explain Pennywise, perhaps leaving that for the sequel. I'd be curious what a first time viewer, with no knowledge of the source novel or the previous 1990 TV mini-series version, thought of the story.

    I recently caught up with the first season of the TV series Stranger Things, which almost certainly had some impact on this film version of It, even going so far as to cast one of the show's leads in this as well. That's not a problem, though, as that kid (Wolfhard) is good in both, and the rest of the cast in this is also terrific, with Lillis, as the sole girl in the group, and the aforementioned Wolfhard, as the foul-mouthed jokester, the stand-outs.

    young adult horror identitycrisis
    After revisiting this movie for what I think is the third Or fourth time I started to be a bit more critical of it. I still think this is a good movie but it doesn't land all the things it tries to do.

    We follow the losers club, a group of outcast kids who most uncover how to defeat the evil entety they call It aka pennywise the dancing clown.

    Bill Skarsgård gives a great preformance as pennywise and I would kinda love to see him have more screentime. At the same time that might hurt the chatecter and take away even more time from the losers club.

    The losers club has some issues to me. Overall the kids preformances are great but some of them is simply not given a charecter in this movie. While Bill and Beverly are fleshed out charecters, Mike and especially Stanley are given nothing in this movie. They might as well not be in the movie but the source material demands it.

    The scares in this movie were not very affective to me and seems more like disturbing images you would find in a YouTube video. This however makes this movie a good "kids first horror movie" contender. The few times the movie got me were suttle things in the background rather than the actually scares I was suppose to react to.

    There is some amazing shots in this movie and the camera work is overall really well done. The score is also really good. It shifts between happy and horror really seemless.

    The movie also has an identitycrisis sometimes with wierd music choises and jokes. The movie doesn't really have a consistent tone and the shift between young adult, comedy and horror is not woven together perfectly.

    While I find the movie good I noticed all the small things that bugged me way more this time. I'll gladly recommend it but don't expect the next horror classic as it is hyped up to be.

    One 9f the scariest of all times
    The story of the movie is more darker and scarier than the 1990 version , pennywise is less talking than tim curry's pennywise , the actors were so brilliant in acting in this piece of art movie , the movie still gave me chilling in every time I see it .

    One of horrifying moments of the movie when Georgie encountered pennywise in the beginning of the movie as I was nearly listening to my heartbeat in this scene , the movie is totally super epic and awesome and you never get bored of watching it many times.
