It Chapter Two ★★★

It's not so much that I mind this more or less follows the TV mini-series beat for beat—I actually like the mini-series, for what it is—it's that, nearly thirty years later and with a staggering budget, "It: Chapter Two" doesn't register as much more complex or nuanced than what aired on ABC in 1990. The bittersweet melancholy and thematic resonance of King's source text are absent here, even if King himself shows up for a fun cameo.
