    It was a great movie. Casting was good, characters was awesome. But, i still wish the movie would have been scarier. Pennywise doesn't scare me for some reason.

    Most of the scary parts were actually funny but in a good enjoyable way. All round entertaining movie and it deserves a good rating.

    IT was pretty boring. I think the movie could have been better without the lazy jump scares.

    I thought the movie was good in terms of plot and character development, but the CGI was trash. They really couldn't do better special effects than that in 2017?

    A ok "movie" but it fudges the adaptation from the novel. Henry's dad is a cop?? Mike lives with his granddad?? Bill is actively trying to find george's body? It takes place in '88-'89?? Hahahaha wtf? The only pennywise altercation the got remotely right was the leper on nibolt street. They didint even convey that IT could also be harmed by what the kids believe. lmao what a joke. They really played up the beverly is a loose slut bit that didint exist in the book! Also, her dad is 1000% more of a pedo and molester than a physically abusive father. The bev sink scene needed more blood am i right? lol. I really wanted to like the new pennywise too because he def looks really good but his dialogue was trash. Where were the jokes??? Just a constant, "You'll be scared" or "I'm going to kill you" monster. He also appeared too often. he lost his scare factor 30 mins into the film. I've read the book twice and aside from the Beverly and company love scene at the end, ( I wish a revision of the novel would omit because it really is pointless), It is a great story IMO. I'll watch chapter 2 just for the sake of completion but I'll leave my expectations at the door.

    I found this movie to be very creepy, a great thriller, very well done. Very unlike the old tv version. I think this Pennywise is far beyond anything from the older version. I mean, Tim Curry can be a good actor, indeed. But this Pennywise was similar to me as watching Heath Ledger's Joker. I didn't see the "actor", but rather a very convincingly disturbing villain. I really was surprised how much I liked this, and look forward to chapter 2 now.

    I found _IT (2017)_ unnerving, and at times, creepy, but not really scary. Pennywise was delightful to watch, and I thought he was mostly funny. It was Beverley's dad and the perverted pharmacist that creeped me out the most.

    This is why horror movies suck these days. It’s too much extreme. Extreme is not scary. You know what’s scary? Subtle. If you don’t have to use your imagination it will not last. If you make them scare themselves whenever they walk past a storm drain they will take the long way around. The movie will never live up to the book because these fucking twat producers won’t let it go there. Don’t let me write a horror movie. I will leave you mentally, physically, and emotionally scared.

    Pennywise is supposed to be attractive to kids, the actor/makeup in this would have put any normal kid off. A real pity as IT is my favorite King novel.

    Too many feminist under tones
    I am a fan of the 1990 mini series and think it was way more creepy
    A giant clown on his hands and knees in the garage was so stupid and 2 hour film needs more character work instead be of following Beverly's story once again alot of feminism under tones ...

    I am a huge fan of both the mini series and Stephen King's work, this movie was okay in my opinion. The actors portrayed the kids in a great light, cinematography was great. I just wasn't a fan of how they portrayed Pennywise. He definitely came off as humorous in my opinion. I personally prefer the mini series, but it would've been a very close call if it wasn't for the humorous scenes that involved Pennywise. But definitely not the worse remake I've seen.

  • siberwolf33

    I thought this movie sucked shit. Started very cool and sucked me in. Here's my biggest beef. It's Stranger Things. I mean seriously, black kid, fat kid, Mike Wheeler, a tough girl, some other white kids, and scary supernatural villain. Ok let's toss in an early 90's backdrop instead of 80's (cuz you know, originality) Total fucking carbon copy. That's too much. Beef #2 - the filler. This movie had a beginning, it had an end, and in the middle there was a shit ton of filler. I'm not just talking simple character development and plot I'm talking filler. Bathroom cleaning montage, bad music, meaningless interactions filler. Final beef - audience. Who is this movie for? Adults? A little too hokie and tame for most adults and lacking in genuine substance. Kids? Cursing, gratuitous violence, terrifying clown. I wouldn't let my kid go to this. I know that all the degenerate low rent parents like to drop their kids at the theater and they will all see this shit so they can become desensitized and become worse people than their parents but is that really the target audience? (I'm being facetious, of course it is. Hollywood doesn't give a good fuck about the development of a young brain.) So that leaves young adults I guess. All in all just a movie attempting to profit off the Stranger Things formula. Kudos to the movie industry, it worked. $$$ But really just not a good film. Kids did a good job though and I love the guy that played Pennywise. He's gonna be a hell of an actor. Pardon the pun.

  • Thomas Pappalardo
    Thomas Pappalardo 7 months ago

    I appreciated Bill Skarsgaard’s effort, but I think Tim Curry nailed the balance between humor and terrifying that Pennywise is supposed to have - especially the opening scene with George. The opening scene where Tim Curry is cajoling and jolly like a pedophile luring a child and becomes terrifying when George gets too close makes sense. Skarsgaard on the other hand makes no sense - what child in their right mind would go anywhere near or talk to that horrifying thing??? Any child would run for the hills.

  • Jesper jönsson
    Jesper jönsson 7 months ago

    IT needed a remake and this one was extremely dissapointing. The biggest thing that i find annoying is that the filmmakers belive that the audience is suppose to be scared because the character is scared. It doesnt work that way.
    The overall tone of the film feels totally of as well and the exposition is told through the characters all the way through.
    For ME, this movie sucked big-time but i can see how it entertains people who haven’t read the book and a younger generation.
    That’s my opinion and I’m sorry for my english-spelling. I’m from sweden so

    To me this was one of the best movies I’ve seen in years ! It also provided this nostalgia from other classic movies like the goonies, the sandlot, or ET. It was more of an incredible adventure film with some intense horror themes. Such a great movie.

    It seems like everyone hates it. I don’t get it. It did have more comedy than an average horror but it was really good and when it was scary it was definitely scary. I love it and I can’t wait for part 2. Also I have to say it’s pretty accurate to the book on most parts. I think this movie was what Stephen king was going for. Much better than the miniseries.

    People complaining about this movie because it wasn't scary don't get the point of this movie. I don't think it was supposed to be the scariest thing you ever seen in-fact it seems every movie that is in the genre of horror, people say they are not scared of. Then why do you watch scary movies if every time you see one you are disappointed because you are not scared by it. What exactly is scary to you? I think it was well thought out unlike some movies and although people are not happy about their being jump scares, those jump scares had a purpose and made for some fun visuals. but no we are just going to hate on this movie for every little thing we can. It was more focused on the story which was what really brought the creepiness out and it did a good job at catching me off guard at times. My conclusion is that you can't please everyone so just move on. If you don't like it, move on. But don't try and tell people they can't like because of the reason you didn't like it.

    As someone who has loved the book and Tim Curry as Pennywise, i didn't like this movie. I found the kids unfunny and irritating especially Richie with his "yo mama so fat" corny jokes and how they handled Beverly's character as a damsel in distress. The clown is trying too hard to seem scary and they don't even let the actor showcase his abilities with all this CGI mess. I've seen better.
