I eat, I sleep, I obsess about pop culture.
I was never quite sure how I felt about this film so I made sure to catch the large format rerelease my local Cinemark had been running this week in anticipation of Chapter 2.
I’m sticking with my original 3.5 rating. It’s still very entertaining and honestly the 2.5 hour runtime flew by, which was surprising to me. The kids are fun and great and while I still think I’d find Pennywise a lot more horrifying without the CGI enhancements,…
I don't give out 5-star ratings very often but this movie is SO much better than I remembered and I loved it A LOT the first time. The casting, the performances, the pacing, the tone, the character work - everything is spot on, to an ABSURD degree. Why doesn't this movie get talked about more?!
I can't even think of words to describe the ways I love this movie. Masterfully clever, shocking, nail-bitingly tense, hilarious - the cast is a once in a lifetime cavalcade of awesome and I have no doubt that there are a number of scenes that will be studied in film classes years from now. Definitely Quentin Tarantino's most mature, coherent film and arguably his best. QT deserved the Best Original Screenplay Oscar this year and it is a travesty that Melanie Laurent wasn't even nominated for her performance.
