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 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.

Haven't even seen it yet, there seems to be lots of hype about it for some reason.......

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