    The 90s movie blows the new ones out of the water. I give the new one 2 thumbs down I left halfway through the movie. To much cgi. To predictable. And they tried to hard to be scary. TERRIBLE

    Tim curry as pennywise is so much creepier and scarier and he had less make up and special effects.the new pennywise was ok but thats not It!!

      The current Pennywise has no specific effects at all. It's his smile and his eyes. Google it before dropping in poorly informed comments.

    4:40 Actually, the reason why Henry went after the Losers alone in the 2017 film was that he killed Belch and Victor. There's a scene that was shot for the 2017 movie (in the part where the Losers enter the Neibolt Street house to defeat It) which showed Henry in the car with the dead bodies of Belch and Victor inside with him, revealing that he killed them. This scene was cut from the movie, however, but it was also a change from both the book and the miniseries (in which Belch and Victor are killed by It).

    just watched IT chapter 2 and it followed the book really well. There was some interjected PC crap on a character or two but still good!

    The new one is a total joke smh I will keep it the original the 1990 version.

    • Coline Collard
      Coline Collard 10 days ago

      Neither actually made the novel justice. At least the 1990 tv adaptation explained why It likes eating children and why it scares them first. In the novel Derry itself is full of people turning a blind eye to all the evil around them and often condoning it to a worrying degree. It's made clear in the novel Derry itself housed a lot of negative energy which made it an ideal place for It to reside in. The losers discover that it's not just It which is evil but the town itself appears cursed with people doing wicked things totally independently of It.

      This whole angle is merely implied in the 2017-2019 movie adaptations but pretty much swept to the background in order to focus on It as some sort of ultimate boogeyman.

      To be fair the novel plods along way too long in places with endless flashbacks making it dull to read at times.

      Tim Curry is genuinely scary and charming at the same time. You laugh with him but still know the joke's on you.

    I liked the 90s version because pennywise seemed more like a real clown, and kind of understand how to mess with them while still seeming like he’s having fun. The new version is just an alien creature dressed as a clown.
