I guess it’s not too surprising since you didn’t care for the book, but yeah you guys are definitely in the minority on this one.

I loved this movie! Dang, there’s a lot of great ones you don’t care for. At least you don’t hate it like “District 9”. I guess this upcoming review might offend some people. Oh, you’ve never cared before.

Many of his reasons for hating District 9 are very uneducated.

I think I would like the corny version more. Plus, I hate that whole “real kids” thing. This one will be a skip for me. I’m surprised (but I probably shouldn’t have been) that the Walker brothers don’t have the same opinion as the other critics that I’ve watched/read.

Was not hyped for this at all, but I’ll probably head out to the local cinema with my sister to check it out. We actually both worked on Hemlock Grove, the show where Bill Skarsgard got his start. Never would’ve guessed he’d end up as the new Pennywise.

I also wasn’t hyped but I’m glad that I did see It. Basically if you like Stranger Things you probably would also like It.

It’s like every good dramatic story that he makes, Stephen King feels obligated to retell it with a supernatural-horror twist. Think about it: Shawshank -> Green Mile (although, to be fair, I like GM). Here, it’s Stand By Me with a magical killer clown.

Thanks for your insight and explaining the problems you had with the film. It’s fact that mediocrity appeals to the masses and whenever the select minority voice their opinion, they can’t take it.

At least you guys tried to get to the root of the issues. Keep it up guys.

I wouldn’t say it’s just appealing to the masses. The majority of critics have liked it, including the ones here on this site.

More, It is the opposite. It doesn’t try to be a horror like usual masses expect, It try to be a good story of kids dealing with monster feeding on they fear. The irony of It is that they are capable to drive him back because humans those kids deal on every day are more scary to them then a monster. And It is also a decent adaptation by the way.

“Kids feel more real because they swear” That’s not exactly justifiable.
