I'm just going to make this short and sweet by saying that I saw IT, and I have to say the movie was everything I could have hoped for. I felt DREAD. Horror films rarely make me feel that way anymore.

The reviews for this are pretty solid. Right now its at 90% on RT. Its also tracking to have the biggest opening weekend ever for a September release.

Loved the films, Skarsgard was amazing as Pennywise and the kids were great

Holy skreeonk It beat Deadpool on its premiere!? At this point it'll probably beat its opening weekend.

If a movie tops Deadpool in terms of the box office that has to mean it must be good on top of the positive and high reviews the movie had been getting.

This was a genuinely good movie. I loved it. It wasn't truly scary, but it was certainly disturbing. But it was also heartwarming and funny. The kids sold the movie. I think Ritchie, Bev, and Ben were my favorites. But the others were great as well. As for Pennywise, not only was he scary and thrilling, but he was so dynamic. He was utilized in so many great ways. I'll absolutely be buying this movie when it comes out on Blu-ray.

Couldn't help but laugh at all the times you said it in the first couple sentences. I know IT wasn't intentional but I still couldn't help but laugh.

A well deserved success. As I said in my review last page, It is easily the best horror film that I have personally seen in an incredibly long time, and is actually downright scary to me. All of the praise it's getting is warranted. Now, I'm ready and waiting for the sequel :).

Finally saw It (Pun intended) and I gotta say I came in with high expectations and in the end I was blown away. I mean I knew it was going to be good from all the reviews I've seen but I didn't expect it to be that good. Without a doubt one of the best movies this year I've seen. :D

The acting especially by the kids and Pennywise is phenomenal, the tone, the pacing, the mixture of scariness and levity blended perfectly not to mention the thrill behind them. Bill definitely played a great Pennywise and he was definitely the perfect pick. This movie definitely deserves the praise it gets and about time we got an amazing horror theatrical movie especially one based on one of Stephen King's best works. I'll definitely see it again. :D



Also if I had to rank the best movies of 2017 so far. It'd be this.

1. Kong: Skull Island/Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
2. The Lost City of Z
3. War for the Planet of the Apes
4. It
5. Logan

Only ones left I haven't seen that has potential to make it on this list is Only the Brave, Thor: Ragnarok and maybe Justice League considering the changes Joss Whedon is doing. Other then that this has been a good year for movies.

How similar is this to the actual book? I've only seen the mini-series.

Either way, this really was great as an overall movie, and it it has consistent success hopefully more studios will make bigger movies from this genre.

IT made 117$ million opening Weekend in the US alone, that's without FL due to this damn hurricane so i fully intend to see it Monday or Tuesday.

IT ALSO has made made 179.2$ million World Wide, making it by far the largest opening for a horror movie to date beating out Deadpool.

Am I the only one who thinks Amy Adams would be the perfect cast for an adult Beverly in It Chapter 2? I mean the actress that plays Beverly in chapter 1 already looks like an Amy Adams as a kid so I think its a fitting role.
