Starring: Bill Skarsgard, Jaeden Lieberher, Finn WolfhardInfo: A bit over 2 hours, but it's quick. Directed by a cat name Andy Muschietti (known for directing 2013's surprise hit MAMA) IT was released September 8, 2017.Plot: Some kids run afoul of a VERY nice clown who's just trying to not starve to death.A bit of trivia: To add to his character, Bill Skarsgard spoke in Swedish. He also took classes on how to be a contortionist to aid in his scenes. He also beat out Hugo Weaving for the role of Pennywise because he could be playful as well as creepy. Hugo Weaving as Pennywise would have made this movie much more intense!As Always there may be spoilers. Big spoiler right now... IT was a movie AND a book before this iteration, so if you're shocked by these things that's on you.Review: I really liked this movie. It was a remake, but also an homage to classic horror movies from the 1980's. I love that about it, so much so. Too many people have been saying it's not a horror movie, but that's because they've been dulled by movies like the Saw series and Insidious, or Paranormal Activity. This is a base horror movie that relies on you to think about things and scare yourself before the scares come from the movie. The scares also don't hold back, they're done very well, meant to build you up. Horror has become a menagerie of things like gore, blood, guts, shock value, possession, found footage (nobody wants this anymore) or zombie movies. IT has a villain who is playful and terrifying at the same time. He literally plays with his food before he eats it, that's his problem.Outside of that, the film was done really well. Good cinematography, good score, good acting and, above all for me, made the "nostalgia" for the 1980's real. Granted I was 4 when this movie was set... oh my god, Pennywise would have ruined me! I was just a kid! I really liked seeing what movies were playing in the theatre in the background.Bill Skarsgard as Pennywise was almost flawless in my mind. The guy was so happy go lucky and then terrifyingly creepy and then back to happy go lucky. Loved him in the role. I also really liked the kids. They were really funny and had some great lines.I don't want anyone to think I'm sucking the D of this movie, so there were certainly things I didn't like about it as well. Firstly being the fact that there are still 3D versions of movies. I really would hope that 3D just stops, it's garbage and doesn't make anything better. I also know that this has nothing to do with the movie itself, but it still gets my goat.I also am not a fan of cliff hanger endings. I know this is slightly different and not really a cliffhanger as there was resolution at the end of this, but I also know that the previous movie rendition, as well as the book, have many more things to come. So seeing "IT: Chapter One" at the end of this made me a bit upset while at the same time excited for another movie.I'd say give it a go if you like classic horror. But if you're going into it thinking it's going to be the next "every halloween on halloween" series that involves gore and bad effects and stuff you're likely not going to enjoy it.
