    ★★★½

    Fuck that whole Willy Wonka sequel theory. This movie is clearly a sequel to The Truman Show and villainous Ed Harris is once again the puppetmaster of an enclosed structure that features seemingly real events.

    ★★★★½

    It's one of those movies that could make you lean forward in your seat -- if you're one of those weird people who leans forward in their seat during a movie. As if the closer your face gets to the screen, the more we all believe that you're connecting with the "film." It's the equivalent of a chin stroke at an art museum. A word-for-word lyric singer at a concert. A butthole.

    Anyway, I sat back in my seat and really loved this movie.

    Wanna hear something scary?

    There was a prize giveaway before the movie featuring trivia questions. Several fans knew the birthdays of all three leads in the movie -- multiple people answered in less than a second.

    THEY KNEW BY HEART WHEN JESSICA CHASTAIN WAS BORN.

    And in that moment I knew what form Pennywise would take if I ever encountered him.

    A Stan.

    Bold move to end the show by blasting Imagine Dragons - Radioactive over the closing credits.
