    Yes it’s good. 

    Manage those expectations. Do not expect fully fledged characters or even a cohesive plot. Don’t even think about expecting logic!

    Running through a disaster movie checklist, and this movie hits all the typical notes you would expect. Heck it even adds some new ones to the mix.

    It’s laughable in almost every conceivable way, but do you know what? I was thoroughly entertained the whole time.

    A coming of age movie that takes place on Halloween over the course of one night. 

    Some great imagery and a soundtrack that feels naturally in sync with the images on screen.

    This movie felt familiar. Yet somehow it absolutely hooked me with some great characters and a strong streak of dark fairy tales. 

    I could spew a lot of superlatives about this film but ultimately it’s just bloody good. Check it out.

    Simply put this is the best movie that marvel has released yet.

    Right from the start this film wears its heart on it's sleeve when introducing the young Peter Quill in his most vulnerable of moments from then on dazzles you with it's quirky characters and sparkling dialogue.

    I could go on to list my favourite moments in the movie but it would just be a transcript of the film.

    This is the the movie i've had the most fun with in the cinema for years.

    I can't recommend it enough. I'll be seeing this a few more times.

    Not as scary as I had hoped, but more than makes up with it woth some interesting camera work and creepy imagery.

    The best thing about the movie is the losers club, the group of kids that feel fleshed out. They all have their personalities, their little quirks and tics. You really fear for these kids and they are what makes the film really work.

    Also Pennywise is a spectacular villain.
