Pennywise in the original IT appeared more welcoming, which made sense as to why children would approach him. The new look of pennywise is clearly more haunting and sinister, almost taking away the natural creepy element of luring the victims in.

With that being said, I'm still very excited to check this new rendition out. So far it's looking pretty good. The casting seems solid, which is a major plus.

I like the new look, actually.  It's a 19th century clown.  Makes sense, because Pennywise is ancient.  Avoids comparisons to other generic clowns.

Really good point! Which goes towards how he is viewed as...mischievous then horrific instead of just clown whacky then...makes the film more dark horror.

I can't stop watching the trailer, based on how good it is I'll probably try to see it in theaters like 5 times

Truly, people were made of sterner stuff in the old days.  Hard to imagine clowns who looked like the new Pennywise not being burned at the stake on general principle.

I just realized recently that this film is made by an Argentinean, Andres Muschetti, who by the way I read that now he has been hired to direct "Robotech" the famous japanese anime series of the eighties.

If his first call isn't to Yoko Kanno to get the music right, he's blown it.  There is so much potential to screw this up.

Let's cross our fingers, it's a huge opportunity to be able to do something great, hopefully it will be like this.

I felt like it was too much CGI when it came to Pennywise. His voice was terrible. He did have a scene here and there that looked pretty cool but nothing outstanding. I dislike kids in movies unless they are deranged or sick / depraved and do unspeakable things... so these kids meant nothing to me. Meh.

Some of the dialog and actions felt like a kids movie aka Stranger Things which I didn't care for. Everyone digs this film so its just a matter of preference, form your own opinion. I will watch the second chapter when they are adults. 

6/10

I thought the movie was hilarious. One of the best comedies I've seen in a while.

Thought the original did it better.  The original has a creepy atmosphere.  This one just didn't grab me, like others have said too much cgi and jump scares.  Maybe a second watch the film will grow on me.

And I still prefer Tim Curry as the clown.  Just as Jack Nicholson as the Joker.  Funny how Batman '89 was referenced.

Stage was set when I tried to not laugh out loud when Pennywise spoke for the first time in the drain.

Yeah the jump scares with the use of the loudest audio I ever heard in a cinema...stated after the film to my fellow movie goer they should had flashing words stating 'scary part' when the sound went up.

Elements were alright then they would do something that would just fuck it.

Movie has made over $500 million now....damn! You know what would be good is the promised remakes of Salems' Lot and The Stand coming out of IT's success...as long as they have HORROR in it.



Favourite scene was Bev's bathroom after the blood is everywhere.
