The trailer was great and loved how many stars in it. This being a two part story looks really fresh.
However after Bojack Horseman I can’t watch any Jessica Chastain performance without thinking she only got it cause Amy Adams turned down the partMay 10, 2019 at 9:46 am #1202888106
The trailer was great. It was really cool for them to include almost an entire scene. The trailer itself was perfectly creepy, and I couldn’t be more excited.May 10, 2019 at 9:57 am #1202888114
Genuinely unnerving trailer. I’m one who thought the first film wasn’t scary much at all, too video gamey, and mostly silly. I’m looking forward to seeing what the adult cast brings to the table here, and of course to see how the story concludes.July 19, 2019 at 5:20 am #1202984870
The Cinematography is amazing. Could it make it to the Oscars?July 19, 2019 at 6:35 am #1202984991

The length of this film (165 minutes) is frankly worrying me. But we’ll see.July 31, 2019 at 1:39 pm #1203004290
I thought Bill Skarskard deserved an oscar nom for the first one and the film deeerved a best pic nom. I think I’ll believe the same when I see the second one and fro what I’ve seen so far I’ll probably give Bill my personal Supporting Actor WinSeptember 11, 2019 at 11:18 am #1203069548
Not a peep about the number one movie in the land? For shame lol. Way too long running time, but I wasn’t checking my watch too much. I think that the scenes where the adults had to find their individual totems (necessary to conjure and stop Pennywise in a very convoluted fashion) could have been shortened somewhat. There’s a special cameo in that section that had the audience cheering though, so keep that one in. For all the talk about the adult casting, and it was spot-on casting that delivered on the kids’ physical and emotional traits, it really was the kids who stole the show again. I’d watch this as a miniseries with more focus on the kids easily, but that’s why we have “Stranger Things” around, I guess. More scares this time, though oddly Pennywise wasn’t as pervasive as I expected him to be. The backstories really did take up a lot of screentime. There was a opening gay-bashing scene that was highly off-putting to watch. It set such a weird tone to the action that followed, and the aftereffects weren’t even touched upon afterwards. Ineffective screenwriting there. I did like the running joke of McAvoy’s writer character being a stand-in for King and not being able to write satisfying endings to his novels lol. See this film if you loved the first one and need to know how this roundabout horror story ends. If not, well, there’s always cable next year…September 11, 2019 at 12:47 pm #1203069696
I thought this was one of the worst movies I had seen this year. And I loved the first one.
The film is not scary at all, it is actually laugh out loud funny, and not on purpose. The CGI and editing is so bad. The scene of the old woman in the trailer, the reveal of that old woman is hilarious in the film, it looks so dumb. And the way they defeat It in the end is the worst conclusion I have seen to a big studio film since the Martha scene in Batman v Superman. And the film is about 40 minutes to long, so much could be trimmed and didn’t serve the story.
The cast is all good, and Bill Hader definitely gives a standout performance.
Overall, a very bad and disappointing film. 3/10.September 11, 2019 at 2:38 pm #1203069876
Not as good as I was hoping for. First of all, it’s almost three hours long. The ending sucked and was way to long/drawn out.
On the positive, James Ransone, Bill Hader and the kids were the best part of the movie.
