When is this coming to digital release? I never did get around to seeing it, but still want to quite badly.

The trailer for part 2 dropped today.  It just sucks that I'll have to wait until Sept. to see it.

I finally saw this.  PW is creepy as fuck, and while I would agree it isn't non-stop scary "horror" based on however we define it, but who cares.  It has enough elements of horror to satisfy that bit, while also being a damn good movie, and on balance I'd think that'd matter most.  It was Stranger Things, but only not exactly, and with a creepy fucking clown.

Not going to watch the trailer for the new one if I can avoid it.  Not sure I will like the adults version of this as much, but definitely have to see it.

The adult versions in the books weren't as interesting as the kids either, so if they can just deliver on creepy spider ending, I'll be happy.

Wasnít the spider just what their minds came up with to make sense of an utterly alien creature?  So not a literal spider?  They can, I donít know, give it 10 legs.  And teeth, lots of goddamn teeth.

The adults portions in the book were less interesting, but still pretty good.  That said, they interwove both time periods, and that is what made it work.  I doubt the movie will be as satisfying.  It will lose the magical Ďteens in the 80sí vibe that we all fucking eat up.

The Previous TV Movie soured EVERYONE on the spider, but it can work if done right, I'm sure.

Never saw that one, nor see much reason to at this point, so I guess I have no pre-conception about the spider thing.

I thought it was actually a turtle from the book, or maybe that was how it was represented in the dark tower series?

In King's case, wonderfully full of cocaine. If I remember correctly, in the book sweet, young little Beverly does her part to defeat the monster by, you know, having sex with all the boys.  Probably for the best the didn't try to bring that over to the big screen R rating or no  why so serious?

Still not quite right. It's actually even stupider. They've already fought the monster, but they're lost in the sewers and starting to panic, so the ensuing orgy is to calm them all down.

I loved it. There are several things that the people here will nitpick until I wonder why they watch movies in the first place, but it was damn entertaining, and three hours flew by.

I was... not as entertained as I expected I would be. Somehing about the cast was off, and it seemed more funny than scary in many moments.

I loved it as well. It was kind of eerie how much like their kid counterparts some of the casting seemed - Eddie in particular. I can see people complaining about Pennywise's final form but it was fine. The 13-year old kid next to me practically jumped out of his skin at some of the jump scares. It wasn't scary to me but they maintained some of the creepy aspects well.

I was in my teens with stupid hormones out my ass reading that part, and even then I felt like throwing the book across the room because of how stupid that was. But a lot of King stuff falls apart once the monster is dead, but for some reason he kept typing and typing after the Monster was gone in this book.

Fuckloads of cocaine or no, and strange as that shit was (along with lots of his shit).....it was still great writing on the whole.

Yeah, IT was one of the only books I've read in my adult life where I had to honestly put it aside for a while because it was too scary and I didn't want to read it alone in the house.

As for the movies, I think I've probably already said this in this thread, but I really didn't like the first part of the remake. Skarsgaard's Pennywise was super frightening, true, but he was one note only. Curry actually made it believable that the kid might approach the drain in the first mini-series, while with Skarsgaard it just knocked my suspension of disbelief right out the window. And honestly, I thought the first mini-series did pretty well overall, except of course for the terrible spider at the ending.

And the kids in IT the movie part one were just horrible parodies of pre-teens. I really wish the Duffer brothers had gotten the job, at least for their scenes.

Funny, I feel the total opposite on the kids.  I fucking hate the kids and their interactions in Stranger Things, and have pretty much not been able to make it past the first season (and barely past the first) because of them.  Meanwhile, I thought the kids in this were mostly great and believable.
