  1. Nice! The numbers so far seem to be a step behind Part 1, but that is to be expected. I’ll be happy with an even in the 90’s, though would really like that 100+.
  2. I won’t over repeat, see my comment It2 thread. I really liked this over part 1, gave this a 8.5/10. B rating.
  3. Oh also, I don’t get the beef people have with the flashbacks. I adored all the memories and moments. It had meaning to the adults then.
  4. Just leaving viewing. My first impression thoughts are that I overall liked this film more than the first one. I think they brought a bit more of horror/scares that work vs the first one. I disagree to these people that say pennywise isn’t in it enough, I thought it was the right amount (coming from someone whose read the book). I guess to the casual fan you expect it, but from the source material he’s in it just right, they even added more scenes for pennywise that wasn’t in the book. I really loved all the adult cast. Like seriously thought this is the best a movie has done when it comes to child into adult transformation actors/actresses. You just felt that these guys are EXACTLY the kids. Just how they look and act. Unlike some critics, I felt the bond just like the first film. I felt the emotion. I don’t want to give anything away but I felt the bond betweeb two pairs, especially one of them. I really liked how the film teased a certain personal drama, but never made anything big about it. Not until the end. The cgi I am for the most part cool with. Sure, some scares were random and not really necessary. However I was good and thought it was an improvement. With that said, for gripes: to be honest I didn’t feel the run time long at all. I swear, not once did I look at my cell to check the time. I was so absorbed in the story of the characters. I think one character I guess could have beeb taken out of the story, and really wouldn’t have changed too much. In the book, this character really didn’t make a whole difference, you’ll know I think once you have seen the movie. My biggest gripe though is the end battle. I do love how the movie jokes about it a lot in hints. Very clever. Does make it feel a bit better. However......yeah, I found it lame. I appreciate I guess some weird sense what they were trying to do, but I would of they try to stick to novel material and perhaps with real prostetics. It just didn’t sit well with me. Other than that, nothing right now jumos at me. I’d rate this a strong mid B, 85/100. It’s definitely a step above the first for me, which I now is of the rare.
  5. In both your opinions, where the creepy/scare scenes better? Also was Pennywise in it less/same/or more than Part 1? This seems to be one of the areas where legit EVERY review keeps going back and forth. Half say it’s less scary, half say holy crapped they upped the scares! Half say Pennywise was in it less, half say he’s in it more. I’ve never seen reviews so conflicting as this. Also visuals, a lot of people are also tossed on visuals. That was a huge gripe with me on Part 1. Are they better in this? (I heard the budget for this was waaaaay higher, so glad to hear WB upped it).
  6. It Part 1 would of been a legit A+ movie for me had it just been a story about a coming of age story with the kids, which is part of what It is. However It is also about the scares and creeps, which the movie completely botched.
  7. Glad to see this is still at 85%, I’m suspecting it’ll finish at around 65-75%. I’m one of the few that was not a hardcore fan of the first one. My grade for the first one was a C+, biggest complaints being the horrible use of CGI, not letting Skarsgard do his own thing, and just some weird wtf moments like the pennywise dancing scene. The first was just overall not scary or even creepy enough. Hoping Part 2 changed that.
  8. Oh yes! Saw GOTG as well, that actually might be my fav marvel film. Can’t believe I forgot that one. Well if we did won’t be soon. He’s in bulgaria now for a year and a half 😕
  9. Naw, really the only marvel films I’ve seen are Iron man 1, avengers 1, thor 3, black panther, captain america civil war, avengers infinity war, and then this one. My bf who loves marvel didn’t see captain marvel and after endgame probably won’t.
