    That’s less of a movie problem and more of a personal problem IMO.

    Besides, save the film for home then. Personally, an hour at a time on TV for 10 hours ruins the experience for me especially for something that is horror. As an adult I can handle a 3 hour experience if it’s good.

    As Roger Ebert once said, no bad movie is too short but no good movie is too long.

    The bits about relying too much on flashbacks are the only thing I've been afraid of since they announced they were bringing the kids back, but I'll wait to see the movie myself before I buy too heavily into it.

    The fact audience wanted "more Pennywise" doesn't mean Skarsgard has little screentime.
    Anyone would want more Pennywise :D

    I was referring to the one review that specifically said "Pennywise is barely in it".

    It sounds like no matter how long Pennywise is in this they make a good use of him, also I can't with runtime complaints, Tarantino showing feet for 3h is fine but OH THE HUMANITY 3h movie based on a huge novel is a no no

    And in other news Randolph didn't trash Chastain :lmao:

    These reactions are nice. Glad to see the positivity, but not without complaints.

    I don't get why everyone keeps saying these reviews are mixed.
    Apart from the couple morons randomly bashing on the movie and saying it sucks major balls,
    even the reviews pointing out issues and cons in IT2 say it's still a good movie.

    Plus, it happened the same thing with Chapter One if I'm not mistaken.
    When the first twitter "reviews" popped up, there were both pros (the kids, the humor, the coming-of-age aspect, skarsgard) and cons (the third act, the character development, the jumpscares, and so on). Then the movie was released, and it had generally positive reviews, even with cons.

    I agree! People are like "a 3 hour movie?!?!!? When will I get to pee?!?!?" you can't go 3 hours? I know some people have legitimate issues that cause them to need the restroom more often (hell, my 70 year old mom gets up 5 times a night) but most people can surely sit for 3 hours without wetting themselves.

    If people just stopped eating and drinking uncontrollably they'd be fine. I for one am glad this year directors seem not to give a damn about those who want movies to be 90 minutes long

    I’m glad they’re including Adrian, even if it’ll probably be a little tough to watch as a gay man.

    I just love the part in Chapter One where Beverly kills her own father because of just how creepy the scene is and the build up to it but I just hope in Part 2 they have her character become more of a badass

    Another scene I hope they include in It Chapter 2 is Kiss Me Fat boy...that was in the 1990 version as well as the Prince Albert in a can scene

    Bev's dad is not dead. He can be heard grunting while he's laying on the floor.
    Actually, it was Stephen King who asked Muschietti to add that breathing sound, to avoid that kind of confusion and not make the audience think Beverly had just murdered someone.

    Can't wait for that one inevitable person on Twitter to watch the Adrian Melon scene, having not read the books, and call the director "homophobic". You just know at least someone will react like this and completely miss the point. :whatever:

    Yeah, people can be dumb and react without any context.

    Small reference pools. And any attempt to say "read the book" will be met with hostility.

    That's a given, but I still bet some folks are gonna misinterpret that scene as anti-homosexuality rather than the hate crime scene it's supposed to be.

    I hope they include the scene of Adult Henry breaking out of prison and trying to kill Mike only for Mike's fellow Losers to save him at the last minute...they had that in the 1990 version of IT
