    ★★★½

    It's slow and plodding, which would be fine, but it doesn't actually say anything all that surprising to justify it. Thought-provoking for people that don't usually think about this sort of thing.

    Most interesting piece was one character's explanation of the Japanese view on Christianity, but that's only a single scene.

    Before, I wrote a review of this convinced that there was far too much to break down in this movie and that I would need to rewatch it to capture it all.

    I've come to the realization that I should write no review at all.

    Initial thoughts were that the movie was too damn loud. The new Pennywise isn't nearly as good as the original. I can't say I was ever actually frightened. But as far as remakes go, you could do a lot worse. The CGI was used properly, not overdone and not without good reason. And hey, 80s nostalgia is fun.

    The kid who played Richie stole the show.
