    I thought so too but I think they are in or are going to Chicago for ByPax so I would be surprised if it happens this week. Or maybe at all.
  • Yeah, it was on the calendar but then it was taken off. Saw it last night though and it has some tense parts in it.

    Was it good?

    I was supposed to be going today but my friend couldn't make it. Was too scared to go on my own so getting my mummy to come with me on Monday haha! ;-)

    Was it good?

    For a horror movie it was fine.


    One beef I had was that the theater had been converted into one with food service in the screening room. I find it distracting when a server stands in front of the screen the whole movie and deals with orders.

    Oh that's terrible! It's one thing to have a waitress or waiter type person taking orders and delivering food but to have someone standing there the whole time would be very annoying. I think if there is any kind of food service, it should be cut off at the end of the trailers.

    I don't think my nerves could handle this movie in the cinema. I'm gonna wait for it to go digital.

    I loved it. The humor fit in perfectly. I was cracking up throughout and was still pretty creeped out. Some of the cgi was a bit much but that's really the only negative I could find.

    Really hope the guys put out a review.

    I plan to see this very soon as it holds a really soft place in my heart as far as King books go. I also hope it does well enough for them to tell the second-half of the story. I get the impression that if it doesn't do great they have no intention of revisiting and tieing up things.

    I saw a thing on the local news yesterday morning before work and they mentioned it was opening this weekend and a sequel has already been announced.

    Some guy here in the UK tweeted these pics from a screening he went to last night, he was the first in the theatre and was greeted by this gentleman!

  • Saw it. The kids are good, the IT actor is good. But I just didn't find it scary. Guess that's the problem now a days where it's just really hard to scare people.
  • I am a gigantic wimp, but decided to go last night since reviews are so good and it's been a long time since I saw a horror movie in a theater. While the movie was extremely intense, I found it very manageable. There are so many great laughs in this movie that it's hard to stay scared for long. If you're like me and generally avoid scary movies at all costs, I would recommend this to you.

  • I Don't think these are actually Spoilers... But... Scroll down and highlight for sequel rumor.  Not a real good rumor, just speculation on what it might be about.












    I heard about that.  In the book (I think everyone knows this, but hey) the story cuts between the kids and themselves as adults.  My understanding was that they were doing the kids in this movie, and the sequel will have them as adults.
  • the weird thing about It was, they FIRST had it up like a month ago? and so as an Aussie I kindof just assumed that it must be coming out over there first. Then it disappeared, then I googled and found out it wasn't out ANYWHERE til sept 8 - but again their scheduled review disappeared. I know they're off doing something...so oh well?
  • Don't think it's a spoiler considering all the production news has said the movie only takes place during the kids timeframe.
  • Saw it (It) last night, and was definitely entertained. The kids are awesome, the King world building is spot on, but the "scary" parts were a little frustrating because they could have used a little more tension and a lot less CGI, in my opinion.
    I couldn't help feeling like this is a terrific adventure/fantasy movie rather than a terrific horror movie, which is cool, just not what I expected.
  • Going to see it this week hopefully

    Just saw it this morning at an early matinee.  Absolutely loved it.  Was creepy, intense, and hilarious as well.  I loved how they didn't try to fit everything into one movie (like The Dark Tower) and came in with the intentions of a chapter 2.  
  • I saw a thing on the local news yesterday morning before work and they mentioned it was opening this weekend and a sequel has already been announced.

    I think the plan all along was to do 2 movies, 1 with the child parts, and then 1 when they are adults

    I'm planning on seeing it but the wife is very pregnant at the moment and whilst we could use it to bring on labour I know she wont enjoy it. I just saw the notice of part 2 which is smart considering the original mini series was 2 parts and its a lot to get into a single movie. 

    BTW has anyone else had this sort of marketing campaign near them? these were taken in Sydney, if I had of seen this I would have run away very quickly.

  • This movie was fucking terrifying.

    I would have been screaming if I'd seen that. I'm already a bit nervous about the drain in the floor of my bathroom.

  • I saw this last night. I found it plenty scary, but I'm a bit of a wimp when it comes to horror. This would have been a great one for the guys to cover, but life calls. I was super impressed by the child actors in this movie. I was prepared for them to be lacking, but they carry this movie pretty much entirely. I don't much recall the 80s but imagine if that was your era this movie was probably spot on.

  • yeah, disappointed to not find a first run review of IT. 

    As a substitution, check out this:



    Red Letter Media is great.
  • so ready for chapter 2. I'm currently listening to the audiobook, and oh boy, Stephen King is not one to get to the fucking point. lol!!

    The audiobook is fantastic. Stephen Weber knocks it out of the park. But yeah, it is not a short read/listen by any means. It meanders at times and like most of King's longer works could really have used a stronger hand from the editor. Unlike some of his other longer work, at least there are so many characters, time periods, and world building that it keeps things moving and fresh.

    As much as I criticize his ability to stick a landing and other nit picky things, I thought 11/22/63 had great pacing and didn’t meander like his other long works.

    This is only the second King book I've read. I also read the Shining. Loved that book, but not a fan of King's writing style (third person omniscient.) I don't feel like I need to know the inner workings of every damn character he introduces. But what the hell. He's a published author, and I have a bachelor's degree and I pick up horse shit for a living, so he must be doing something right!
