pretty much met my expectations which weren't all that high to begin with. it was entertaining enough and sweet and though not that scary, i'm still really happy with bill skarsgard's portrayal of pennywise. character development was a bit clunky and at times it felt like they were trying a bit too hard to tie each character's separate storylines together back into the group. once again eddie and richie were my favorite part of the movie, which is to be expected since all four actors do a fantastic job at conveying their personalities and mannerisms.
flip flopping a bit on whether i want to give this 3 or 3.5 stars. not sure if i set my expectations too high or if it's just a bit too messy and dragged out for tarantino to pull this one off, but i just mostly feel... confused? like i'm not entirely sure what story this movie was trying to tell me.
