It - Lite

I desperately wanted to like this film, I really did. After all, I'm a huge Stephen King fan, and had just finished re-reading the entire 1153 pages of the novel the movie is based on. This story is only surpassed by King's other mammoth work, 'The Stand'. But reading the novel before seeing 'It' was my first mistake. I understand that it is difficult to cram in 500+ pages of book into a 2 hour movie (I say 500+ because the film only covers half of the time-span laid out in King's novel).

We All Float Down Here

I have a deep appreciation for It - the book is my second-favorite Stephen King novel (The Stand will always win, by a hair) and the 1990 adaptation featuring the unforgettable performance from Tim Curry is still one of the better King adaptations there has been. When I heard they were coming around to make a new version, I was a bit skeptical, even hesitant, but when that first trailer dropped, I was sold and Andrés Muschietti has created the definitive version of It, and It is very good.

The film updates the setting from the 1950s in the book to 1989. It hits close to home, both in that Stranger Things (penned by the Duffer Brothers, who were in early talks to direct It) has brought about a new 80s revival and the fact that I myself was around the same age as the characters in the m...
