    ★★★★

    Something about this movie, fam. It's hilarious and fast-paced and action-packed. Miffed i didn't see this in the full, but compared to most Marvel films, this one nails everything it attempts. Could watch Ant-Man all day.

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Tim Curry as Pennywise > Skarsgard as Pennywise, but It 2017 > It 1990. Finn from Stranger Things stole the show but so much of this full feels underdeveloped and, frankly, not scary.

    Or maybe my heart truly is black and dead.

    ★★★★½

    This is up there with the best films I've seen this year. Sean Baker took two relatively unknown actresses, had them stand toe-to-toe with Willem Dafoe, and churn out a beautifully-shot, gut-wrenching tale of ratchet Orlando in the shadow of Disney. There's a lot to unpack, especially since a bunch of this is told through the eyes of a 6-year-old.

    All kinds of funny and painful and sad and child-like and beautiful and scary. It's America, for good or ill.

    This is the most fun I've had since 'Guardians of the Galaxy.' The first one, not Vol. 2, although Vol. 2 was fun af.
