  • Mr. Movie review: 'It' a pretty good adaptation of Stephen King's novel

Pennywise, AKA IT, returns in this rebooted film, seeking children to feed his hunger before his next 27 year hibernation. As for Pennywise, even though the dancing clown had more screen time in the mini-series, Skarsgard, is memorable. This then creates a bond and dialogue between the children that all feels authentic and realistic to this time period, and is often times really amusing as well. The kids' storyline is vastly improved without having to worry about shoehorning in the adults, and little details about some of the characters get more fleshed out (and, in some cases, redeemed from their book characterizations).

The old showbiz adage "a Bond film is only as good as its villain" also applies to movies made from Stephen King novels. In the past year, the town has been faced with numerous missing children, including Georgie (Jackson Robert Scott), the younger brother of one of the main characters, Bill (Jaeden Lieberher). Working with a script written by Gary Dauberman (Annabelle), Chase Palmer and Cary Fukunaga, Muschietti went straight in and pulled no punches right from the opening scene of the ill-fated maiden voyage of the S.S. Georgie. Now, Bill Skarsgård has taken over the role, playing an evil clown that is actually something far, far worse than a spooky weirdo in greasepaint. Knowing that humor helps sell any horror concept, they have given the kids some playful and amusing dialogue.

And someone else summed up what we're all feeling: "2017 pennywise is extremely hot and i am a disgrace". Beverly, looking to bring the group back together, has sex with each of the boys, leading one of them to remember where they were going and escape.




"Tim Curry's performance was unbelievable".

What the kids soon discover is there is strength in numbers, whether they're facing down bullies or a monster that likes to spend most of his time disguised as a creepy clown calling himself Pennywise (Bill Skarsgard). Skarsgard was a ideal pick for the gig. If you're not already afraid of things like clowns, or women with twisted faces, or walking corpses that look like they wandered straight out of the nearest haunted house, there's absolutely nothing here to be afraid of. When he speaks his voice is hilariously terrifying.
