    It

    ★★½

    What? I mean, I thought this was a horror not a comedy.

    When Pennywise bit Georgie's arm I laughed a bit. All of the kids cussing throughout the movie made me laugh. Towards the end I made a comment about "the final kiss to awake sleeping beauty" to my friend beside me. The very next moment, Ben kisses Beverly and she magically awakens from her floating state...

    Jackie

    ★★★½

    A rather slow paced, but deeply honest and strained biopic about Jackie Kennedy after the assassination of her husband John F. Kennedy.

    "Jackie" is yes -- slow paced, but what it lacks for in timing it makes up for in both story and acting.

    You know, I've never been a huge fan of Natalie Portman, but after seeing her performance in this? That opinion could change. There's a scene that takes place right after JFK's assassination. Jackie boards a plane…
