I agree, I was a little disappointed, too many 80s nostalgia cliches.

I will eventually see this movie, because I want to compare it to the original! as I've said many time before, I'm not into remakes very much, BUT! when they have cuties like these in them, I just can't resist! Cheesy Grin Another thing, I also want to compare this new actor's performance against Tim Curry's as Pennywise! I remember when I first saw the original, Tim scared the Beegeezees out of me! Shocked

"You'll float too!" Grin

I really enjoyed it.
Hmm, I have some things to say about it, but I don't want to spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it.
The new Pennywise was good. I like Tim Curry just because it's Tim Curry, but this new actor was also good.

Spoilers:
I liked the movie a lot except for one thing. The ending! So at the ending they set it up for a part 2, but I really think they could have finished the whole story with this one movie. To be honest, they added all the best scenes from the second half of the original movie into this first part. I thought they were going to wrap the whole story up right until the very end.  But the ending left me confused. They didn't explain what happened to the kids who were floating and I don't see the point in them coming back when they are adults. Anyways it's way more entertaining to watch kids fight a scary clown than adults, am I right?

Guess I will wait until this one comes onto DVD. Nice bunch of boy actors except for the overweight kid on the right. Give him a miss.   Wink

I was at the premiere!  (Almost didn't make it to the theater because of a traffic jam  Shocked )

Loved it!  Really enjoyed Jaeden Lieberher and Jack Dylan Grazer and hope
to see more movies featuring Jackson Robert Scott.

I have a vacation coming up in January, I think I'll try to go see it in theater! I can afford it because the way the paydays fall in the company I work for, I'll get 3 of them in December, so that means the last one will be a free and clear one! Cheesy so I might just see a few movies! but THIS one will be the 1st on the list. Grin

Can't say this was as good as the original even though the ending was better dealt with in that the monster wasn't a big spider cop out. The boy actors said their lines at such a machine gun rate they started to sound like speeded up chipmunks. I had the subtitles on and many times they went off before I had a chance to read them properly. The F word was used far too often and the boys sometimes acted like a bunch of pussies which might have been the reason Pennywise kept coming to Derry to find kid victims. It was frightening in parts when the boys weren't screaming the place down but the characters lacked the depth shown in the original film.
Best looking actors were Wyatt Olef who played the Jewish boy, Stanley and the teen Owen Teague who played the bully.
I bought the ordinary DVD so all I got for extras were deleted scenes whereas if you paid more for the BluRay version you got interviews with the boys and that. Discrimination. Boo.

Well, now the question is who had the brilliant idea to make a sequel that takes place 30 years later with the middle aged versions of the same characters. The popularity of the 2017 movie had a lot to do with the child cast, as I recall.

Cinefan, you may enjoy reading about Jack Dylan Grazer's off-screen bad-boy antics  Wink ...

You will have to blame Stephen King in the original novel.   


As I recall, the previous movie version started with the 30-somethings
(the one still living in town calls up all the others to tell them that the
time has come to return and finish the monster off); then flashes back
to the kids; and finally returns to the 30-somethings.

Thanks, I haven't read King so I figured it was an industry decision.
