I FINALLY SAW THE MOVIE I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR!
Whew. *wipes brow from all of the excitement*
I know that there are some mixed reviews out there on Facebook and Twitter, but you won’t get that here. I LOVED IT!
Yes, there are parts that could have been closer to the book.
Yes, Beverly is treated like a damsel in distress.
Yes, the character development could have been stronger.
But…a book that is over 1,100 pages long is quite difficult to reproduce–for goodness sakes, the 1990 TV miniseries couldn’t even do it in over 3 hours of time! So instead of focusing on what’s NOT there, I want to tell you what’s good.
- Beverly is a kick ass chick in this movie. She doesn’t apologize for herself or her actions. My favorite scene with her is the one in the bathroom. The. Best.
- Bill Skarsgård was a scary freaking clown. Seriously. Just the drool dripping from his pointy teeth was gross and creepy. I don’t think anyone could have done this better.
- The friendship between the kids. The Losers made the movie. The question now is, will there be a part II?
- IT was scary. Not as scary for me as it would have been had I been younger, but still got me a little. Only one of the jump scares got me though. Truly. I knew they were coming. I did enjoy watching my boyfriend jump though! Lol.
So, if you’re looking for an entertaining movie that’s scary…go see IT. You’ll float too.
