I saw an early screening of it a couple of months ago, and I can finally put my two cents in. I thought the movie was decent, 7.5/10 for me. I'm bias cause I read the book last year so my expectations were a little higher. I expected more from some scenes like
[spoiler - click to view]



They also made Bill and Beverly's spouses cameos rather than actual characters. There's a suspenseful part of the book where Beverly's dude flips out and is on a hunt for her in Derry, but that didn't make the film. I understand that book is big af and King packed a lot of detail in it, it just felt like they could've done a lil better with some of the elements.

I also wasn't feeling them alluding to Richie and Eddie having a thing for each other as kids. It wasn't part of the story and it was obviously added to appeal to the LGBT community.


It was an early screening so some scenes may have been added or deleted (some of the effects weren't done), but I'll check it out eventually to see if anything has changed, including my opinion

Saw it yesterday in IMAX. Gotta admit I was a little underwhelmed.



Still a good movie it's just hard to followup after chapter 1.

6/10

Was decent. A little on the crazy side but it had it's moments.

Edit: This movie had some of the worst movie previews I ever seen. 5 straight previews that were sh*t.
That sucks, the worst for me was months back that sh*tty hotel royale movie trailer played like 4 or 5 times in between other trailers...sh*t was annoying lol

Saw it. Thought it was good 8/10 flick for me. Wasn't anywhere near as scared as the 1st IT, but they follow the trend of today's horror flicks and that's writing strong character arcs and journeys that just happen to have scary/horror elements to it. That seems like a, "yea, no fu*king sh*t" hot take in today's world of Us, The Conjuring, and Hereditary but there really was a time when horror was all about jumpscares, so I'm great w/the continuing of everyone's development taking full center of the audience's attention. I think this is perhaps the best casting they could've made for the adults and while McAvoy and Chastain are top notch, per usual, Bill Header is just..........unreal in this movie. I didn't think Finn Wolfhard's Ritchie could be outdone and here I am proven wrong. Pennywise is once again a strong element as is the score too. I dunno who conducted the score but he/she get a 9/10 for me.

But as I said, it's nowhere near as batsh*t scary as Chapter 1 just due the fact that they're kinda, sorta hardened adults, even if they're caught in an arrested development that is able to play on old childhood fears, plus this movie is lonnnnnnnnng. You start to feel just how long it is about 2 hrs in, and they're still nowhere near a perceived ending as a watcher, and it can feel daunting due to the amount of emotional investing you're putting in. I think that just pulling in at 2 hrs 50 mins is the max time an average person could put into investing a movie like this, but that might be a stretch. Def affects the rewatchability for future showings.

I also think this is low-key one of the funniest movies I've seen this yr. Not a bad thing at all, but it damn near veered into Comedy territory multiple times throughout

I'd give it a 7/10. I liked the first film better, but this one was still worth the watch even if I thought it was a little too long. The adult actors did a solid job with Bill Hader and James Ransone being the highlight performers. I felt that Pennywise was more sinister in Chapter Two, but the movie sorta just jumped all over the place.

I'm about to borrow the book from the library here shortly, so I can't say whether or not the films were a good adaptation or not. I'm excited to read it as I heard this is when Stephen King was deep into his cocaine binge, so it's gonna be quite an adventure.

Honestly, I don't like scary movies. Not because I'm scared of em. It's cause the story lines literally are fu*king dumb a*s fu*k. But the IT series is dope a*s hell, cool a*s story line, scary scenes(I jumped on one part), and the way the movie was shot is A1. 5/5 for me.

Clearly not as good as the 1st one.

Movie was too damn long and felt like it.

They was really forcing the funny on this one and it threw me out of the movie one too many times.

I liked the Stephen King meta nods in there.

Many of the scare sequences were well done, even though the CGI was kinda iffy at times.

Overall, it was a decent closer to the story but I wouldnt watch again.
