Apparently this is something like 2 hours 50 mins... They clownin' or what?
If I could move the night I would
And I would turn the world around if I could
There's nothing wrong with loving something you can't hold in your hand
You're sitting on the edge of the bed, smoking and shaking your head
Well there's nothing wrong with loving things that cannot even stand
Well there goes your moony man
With his suitcase in his hand
Every road is lined with animals
That rise from their blood and walk
Well the moon won't get a wink of sleep
If I stay all night and talk

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'm so many people.

Fuck that, imma watch the shit out of it.
That's what fiction is for. It's for getting at the truth when the truth isn't sufficient for the truth.

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.
