Reflections of James McAvoy: Inside his trip through the ‘It Chapter Two’ hall of mirrors
I can't wait to hear the first reactions to this.

This would be so awesome!!!!
Also, sounds like the embargo will be lifted today!
I'm actually glad it's not universally praised on Twitter, you need that varied opinion. The runtime is necessary considering how long the book is.
Didn't realize we were getting reactions tonight.
Heh, sounds like reviews of the adult sections from the IT novel. I guess that’s as it should be.
Not too happy Pennywise doesn’t have bigger screen time.
Happy to hear all the buzz about Hader. I'm hyped
You know, I'm perfectly fine with the other negative reviews given to this movie since they're worded professionally at least, but it's crap like this that makes me assume this review in particular is pure hyperbole. I almost expected her to write "I almost walked out, it was so godawful".
I figured with that run time we'd get more Pennywise, that's a shame. My expectations were already set as "won't be as good as chapter one" so the bit of divisiveness isn't too troubling.
The movie might be polarizing to a few, but if you're on board from the start, it'll work like gangbusters. The film is a gorgeous, heartfelt and highly ambitious horror event that you won't see again anytime soon. The lore in the book is a bit wonky at times leading up to its finale, Andy definitely condensed it into a more refined and accessible culmination. Cast is stellar, and has one of the most emotional payoffs in horror film i've ever seen. My favorite film of the year.
Happy to hear that. Wasn't expecting the embargo to drop so soon.
I do question when people say “overlong” for a film because these same people are happy to binge 20 hours of some tv show.
Are these two related or married?
I'd also like to know their reactions to the deaths in the film. Because I can see how the opening could make some people turn on the film right at the start souring the whole experience and how the ending could then cement that negative opinion.
People binge television shows in the comfort of their homes on much smaller screens. It's a different experience from sitting in a stiff theater seat in front of a giant, stupidly bright screen, while being assaulted by theater speakers, surrounded by hundreds of strangers. And with a horror film there is continual tension and stress. That **** wears a person out, quick. And a person has to deal with potential bathroom conundrum at the theater.
I binge shows regularly, but you couldnt pay me to spend more than 4 hours at a theater. I get headaches, back aches, my knees get stiff, and my ass goes numb. I get thirsty and hungry. Its a less and less comfortable ecperience the older I get.
I knew Bill was gonna slay and get praise but this is even better than I expected!
I don’t like the comment about Pennywise barely being in it.
Same here. For all I know he might be in it a good deal but some were expecting even more.
All I know is I hope they show IT's true form.
