So when my hubby asked, "You wanna go see It on Saturday morning?" I wonder if he thought I'd say no? I had scheduled to go walking with my friend at the park and shopping for a few clothing items and...
We caught the 10 am showing. The theater was about half full, but mostly with older folks- ensuring a pleasant viewing. What I found funny was, they were doing the same thing as me- comparing, expecting particular things to happen. It went so much deeper than that crap mini-series release from the 1990's! The new version carried the heavy, foreboding weight of the King novel- it was unbelievable- even without all the proper settings!
so very spooky and horrific, like the book. There was no way I couldn't greedily eat up every scene! When it ended, I looked to my husband and smiled. He asked me what I thought. My response was: "I..."
Sorry, I can't tell you what I said, because it would give too much away. LOL I can say this, it was great. I want to see it again, just to look for anything here and there. There's so much I want to say; I need to find a forum or something to discuss a few details.
Though I'm not a fan of children cursing, these kids did a bang-up job bringing the Loser's Club to life. Each kid was perfectly selected, even if they didn't get to truly open up and show the bulk of what they were really like. You can tell; if you read the book, you'll notice some minor detail issues but with the way they pulled it off, you won't complain. I didn't- am not.
Check it out when you can, and be prepared to see something amazing and so much better than it's predecessor. I promise!
