It - Review

"Beep Beep Richie!"

I'm not much of reader when it comes to books. The reason why I couldn't care less when a book gets adapted into film, because not every word is gonna translate well on screen. However, I do remember at a young age watching the 1990 adaptation starring the amazing Tim Curry. While I was never scared, due to it's goofy and sloppy scenes, but Curry performance left a last long impression on me and other people. Re-watching the TV movie didn't help to painfully realize how out dated it is. I wouldn't even call it good, just bad. If a reboot was ever needed, this was it. Now here we are today.

"It" (2017) is a massive improvement and avoids watering it down like other terrible TV movie adaptations. While not on the same level of greatness like &qu...

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). In watching 'It', I realized just how deep these characters are drawn in the book, but the film lacks the time to provide anywhere near the same depth for even just the main characters.

At least we do get to know the 'Losers' by their signature quirks. Bill Denbrough (well played by Jaeden Lieberher) ...

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...
