When we last left off the Losers Club in 1989, they had just defeated Pennywise the Clown and swore to return if It did not die. Well, IT did not die and returned stronger than ever. I'm not going to post spoilers, but I will give my thoughts.
This was one of the first movies to ever legitimately give me a jump scare. There were also a lot of hilarious scenes as well. There were a lot of F bombs in the movie too. Bill Hader as Ritchie was the best part of the movie. However, Jessica Chastain as Beverly was kinda hot. The kids cast returns as well in new scenes.
Overall this version was way different than the 1990 miniseries version. In my opinion this was better. I still have nostaliga and sentimental value in the 1990 version with Tim Curry, John Ritter, Richard Thomas, and Harry Anderson. This version however held up more to the book than the 1990 miniseries ever did.
I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars. Its excellent, it ended the story in a way it needed to. However it is nearly 3 hours long which to me is the only setback. The CGI animation is on point. The only spoiler I will post is they actually kill the Clown instead of the spider like in the miniseries.
I loved both the 1st and 2nd chapters. Bill Skarsgard is a excellent Pennywise. Tim Curry is still an epic Pennywise as well, however Curry is more comedic and Skarsgard is more terrifying.
If you have seen it tell me what you thought!
