The first one was all right. (Forgot everything about it, already.) But I won't watch this one. The two timelines (Kids/Adults) work together in the book. Separating them is...what are you gonna do, exactly? An overlong, tedious movie?

I liked Chapter I for all the scenes not involving Pennywise (except the opening, which, when playing out, I thought might be too scary for me, then bad cgi occurs and *voila* I snapped out of it). It frequently functioned as a great little Stand By Me-esque coming of age flick, but the scare scenes just felt needlessly loud and cranked to eleven.

Looking forward to this.

This piece points well to the reason why I'm disappointed that nobody seems to want to dig at the heart of It.

I haven't read the book, so that was very helpful. It summed up my thoughts on these movies.
