I've always wanted to watch this movie, I have a huge fear of clowns so this was something I knew would possibly scare the pantaloons off me. (Shrugs if that really is a word) So we started watching the movie and heaps of Characters were being introduced! I really liked where this was going! the clown Pennywise, on the ohter hand played by Tim Curry Failed to really scare me, I loved how weird and outrageous he was, my favourite quote was: "Kiss me, fat boy!" That made me laugh out loud!
but the real downer of this movie had to be that once you understood where the kids where coming from you really didn't care about the adults and you wanted the children's stories to continue! Sadly that does not happen & sadly you have to sit through another 2 and a half hours of waiting for the grownups to get over themselves and finally take down It.
I am sure the book is 100 times better and the way the story flows is much more polished in the book, but in the end I just wanted this movie to end!.. and honestly I fell asleep right at the end when a giant alien spider was attacking the adults.. really? That? Stephen King?.. What. Where you thinking? how does a clown suddenly turn into a spider?! I must've fallen asleep because I sure as hell didn't understand any of the explanations of what It really was.
Maybe I need to see this movie again.. but for 3 hours? The Dark Knight did a swell job at building tention in the first half of the movie and then throwing the huge second half at you and getting you more excited.. but "It" failed to do that.
Got 3 hours of your life you wanna throw away? then watch this flick and let me know what you think.. Read the book? let me know what you think is better, the book or the movie?
