    and to me Stan was a fuck nigga only worried about himself and how he kept trying to remind folks he was Jewish. I thought he was a goner in that sewer scene but he got up like nothing happened lol. We all know his fate anyway so I guess I should be happy about that cause dude just seemed like such a pussy

    after watching this again dont remember it being that cheesy. lol

    Seen it yesterday, I enjoyed it. Still prefer Curry's voice and antics, but overall I had fun watching and the scares and attempts at getting closer to the book were great.

    You're tripping fam but what I can say about Curry's is that he was more "personable". The new guy bodied the role tho. The drule was fuckin amazing NH, he did a phenomenal job making him creepy.

    Anyone notice Stephen King as the pharmacist :joy: LOOOLOLOLOL

    He was definitely creepy and really dove into the role. I agree about how you view Curry too.

    it was better than i expected

    the acting was great and it had it's funny, creepy moments

    wasn't scary but then again neither was the novel

    imho it is essentially suppose to be a story about being frightening and the discovery of evil opposed opposed to being a story that it suppose to frighten you...think that gets lost on ppl, especially non book readers, at times

    cons...

    the lack of the spiritual elements from the novel

    didn't feel as though the main characters were in any real danger

    mike was reduced to being a throwaway character

    didn't like how IT kidnapped bev

    wish they did a better job of incorporating derry's history and illustrating how the adults of the town were under its spell

    also wished they did a better job of showing how It, in addition to eating children, feeds on violence, racism, sexual predation, etc

    and with the bathroom cleanup scene they could have shown or hinted that bev was unable to clean up the blood by herself and that it took the group working together to further emphasis the importance and strengthen of their bond moving forward

    give it a B-

    chapter 2 got a lot of ground to cover if they want to do the story justice

    Uhhh...correct me if I'm wrong...but I thought that scene kinda captured that? Not sure how much more you could get outta that scene. Kinda self explanatory that the group had her back and that they all had a strong bond.


    Lol @ Bev quietly exposing Ben's NKOTB poster. Hilarious.

    in the novel it's like their bond has magical, super natural properties...

    and it was more about them overcoming their fears as a group

    so again they could have better hinted that she alone could not wash away the blood ....it was them working as a unit

    maybe via a convo or passing remark

    they did an ok job of showing how their bond is what ultimately crippled IT, but they could have did more

    its not really a flaw just would've like to seen it, could have added to movie's lore

    Seems to me they kinda took that scene from tv movie. Nothin really needed to be said. I never read the novel...but I can tell certain parts were inspired by the tv. Them not saying it or hinting about their bond wasn't needed, b/c their actions established it.

    I think adding some kinda super natural properties...like some kinda magical glow wheneva they got together...that would've came off kinda cheesy and awkward. Lol.

    Now I ain't cuttin my damn hand to form that bond tho. Fucc that. Just gimme dap. I don't need a staph infection to promise I'll come back. Lol

    the movie same as the tv series adapted the scene from the book

    from what i remember they discussed bev not being to clean up the mess on her own and her parents not being to see the blood in detail

    I guess I just wanted more world building

    not necessarily a glow or anything

    just a convo, remark, etc to establish something more was going on...they were brought together for a reason ....maybe by a higher force

    but I dunno...the book is a lil cheesy, weird, etc.... there are talking turtles and space spiders and such, the gang tried to replicate a native american ritual....

    seeming like they will prob leave most of that out the second chapter as well to make it a conventional, safe "horror" movie
