    ★★★½

    Yo, why didn’t anyone tell me this is actually good? This is some fun-ass self-deprecating He-Man crazy bullshit, and Marvel’s best film since Iron Man 3, probably because like Shane Black, Taika Waititi actually has a distinct style and doesn’t take himself too seriously (Black Panther is really good too but I preferred this on a personal level).

    If there's a lingering, vague sense of disappointment regarding this film lurking somewhere in my soul, it's due to the fact that the first half of Muschietti's vision (yes, this is part one of two, dealing with the first time the Losers confront Pennywise while they're still kids--Part 2 will deal with what happens to them as adults) for one of King's most notorious novels comes so fucking close to being perfect, yet that five-star experience slipped through my fingers…
