How Does 'It' Movie Stack Up for You?

Anyone seen it yet?

I do just hate when the "horror" turns into "sci-fi" at the end >:(. Same with 'Super 8', great opening, bad ending.

I haven’t seen the It rehash (because that’s what it is), but I’m not too impressed with the way the film looks. Also, no one could ever better Tim Curry as Pennywise. I agree about the ending of the film, though, but there’s been several films through the years with disappointed endings.
“I really would like to go to Marmorkirken. It was there that I heard music for the first time, and that experience is like a heavenly vision for me.” - Rued Langgaard

I remember the big campaign for the title, back in the deeps of time, when Viking-Penguin still had facilities in East Rutherford, New Jersey.  I've not read the book.

I saw the first one, awful, and not not worth it, I think.

Btw, clowns in Russia have demonstrated against the movie, criticizing how it is offensive and damages their profession and mission:
