    You know you are an introvert when the fear of having to deal with people in the theater is worse than your fear of IT.

    have you been to a dollar theater before? :lol: Anyway I saw it last night! Not bad, somewhat scary, quite funny here and there, but it got cartoonish toward the end IMHO.

    Saw it, liked it well enough. Kept my attention well for a 2.75 hour movie.

    Been a while since I watched the first, but my gut is that the first one is better.

    Someone pointed out, the first one had an easier job to to.
    What with it being a clown scaring kids on the background of a coming of age story.
    Part 2 has a harder uphill climb.

    I'm going to guess Beverly wasn't taken to poundtown or referenced to being taken to poundtown in part 2.

    Andy Muschietti is planning a 7 hour supercut of both movies for blu-ray release.

    Saw It. I thought it was pretty good. The part with the kids was really good. Not scary at all, but creepy and Bill Skarsgard is a good actor. It was unnecessary to cast Macavoy and Chastain, but I liked their performance. Really liked the guy who played Mike. My only big complaint is they used too much CGI. Also,they could have shaved a half hour off the movie.

    This was about 30 minutes too long. Holy shit they needed to trim some of it, I was losing my focus towards the end. They probably didn't need as many kid flashbacks as they had.

    The cinematography was incredible. Some really cool scene transitions (notably going from a starry sky to one of the characters putting together a puzzle). The carnival funhouse was really well done with the hall of mirrors.

    Great acting, especially from Bill Hader and Bill Skarsgard. Hader really blew me away, and Skarsgard knocked it out of the park with his role again. Other actors were well cast and good too. The guy they cast for Bowers was great too, even if he was barely in it.

    There were some weird (maybe intentionally) goofy bits, such as the old lady's big floppy tits. That was a little distracting.

    Overall, I enjoyed it, but probably not as much as the first one. The kids' storyline really had a lot going for it. The adults' storyline was always kinda meh (especially the 1990 version).

    Just saw it. Here's my short review:

    There's 2 hours and 49 minutes of my life I'll never get back.

    Pretty sure the CIA will be showing that supercut to terrorists to extract intelligence from them.

    Much more effective (and less controversial) than waterboarding!
