    That was another issue with the old adaptation. The book described It’s true form as being beyond human comprehension, but seen as spider-like, as that was the nearest comprehensible comparison. But hey, that hack Mick Garris and his dollar-store budget just saw the word spider and ran with that.

    Yeah that's bullshit and just hacky writing. If something is beyond description there's a million more creative ways in trying to describe it rather than saying "It's like a spider."

    Burbank, CA, November 14, 2017 – You’ll float too when “IT” arrives onto 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and Digital from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.

    Watched this last night. It's kind of a mess, but it has some genuinely scary set-pieces. I particularly liked Stanley and Eddie's encounters with "it", the latter being absolutely bone-chilling and probably the spookiest in the whole film. Despite what everyone has said about the characterizations, I felt they were better in the TV movie and I liked the kids more in that one. I thought there was too much Pennywise as well.

    I'm really glad we got a copy and am looking forward to watching it again. It will never be as important to me as the original, but I did enjoy a lot about it even if not everything.

    Saw this when it came out and thought the young cast was terrific and Skarsgard as Pennywise stood his own against Curry. The scares just weren't as nasty and visceral as the book but I guess they wanted this to not be a hard R in the states.

    The best horror sequence was Beverly in the bathroom, the rest of the scenes just didn't have that frisson. Too bad we didn't get the scene of the tough kids playing with each other in the junkyard followed by the flying leech death that is the single most grotesque scene in the book. Missed the flashbacks to It manifesting in other eras of Derry but I guess that was inevitably going to be cut.

    Glad they didn't overload it with 80s music and was surprised the kids looked so much like kids, especially Ben. Thought the last shot was great, thank God we didn't get the child orgy that ruined that section of the book.

    The adult section of the book is actually more horrific and brutal than the kids so the second half has the potential to darken significantly even if it seems unlikely they'll go there.

    Considering just how big of a hit this was I think it's fair to assume that the director has the clout to go to those places in chapter 2.

    I actually thought this was really strong. It's going to scare the snot out of a lot of primary school kids and surely that's what it's all about.

    Pennywise was great. I always thought Curry was a bit one note. This Pennywise is a lot more desperate, a lot more hungry. He's a special creation though I'm not sure I like the old fashioned costume and I'm surprised they showed so much of him so early on. You'd think you'd want maintain some mystery over the look of your monster early on. It occassionally gets a little too cgi but some of the effects were awesome.

    It does take a long time till the kids become independent characters as so much time is spent on scare scenes early but they get there in the end. The kid actors are all pretty good but the whoever the girl is is a super star. Attractive, hyper expressive, I'll be surprised if she's not around for a while.
