IT Chapter Two - Review

This is the conclusion for the film IT from 2017. Now, I will say that I loved the first part better than this one BUT I did also enjoy this one. I loved Bill Hater and James McAvoy. They really stood out among the cast. That's not to say the rest was bad. I think all the actors did a fine job. I will say that the adult Bev isn't as cool as the kid version but that's just my personal opinion.

I love that there was more humor in this one because of the humor and kinda bad CGI I wasn't scared at all. I usually get freaked out easily in scary movies. So if you want to dive into horror without being scared shirtless, this movie is a good start!

I wished there had been more of Pennywise as the clown in the movies vs the CGI monsters because they're just not as scary as the actual clown. Again, just my personal opinion.

My biggest gripe and this is just personal to me, it won't affect most people but I do want to mention it because if someone had told me I wouldn't have gone to see this one. Before the movie starts there's a warning for the flashing lights and man do they use flashing lights! There is one scene in the funhouse that is seen in the trailer and then most of the ending... so I had to cover my eyes or hide into my partner's shoulder for most of the ending which sucked because it was so good from the parts I did see and what I heard.

I've heard a lot of complaints about the runtime or the pacing and I didn't have any issues with it. The pacing was perfect! Nothing was ever too slow or boring. The runtime didn't fill bloated or overstuffed. I thought it was great!

Overall, I really enjoyed this and fully recommend unless you have issues with strobe lights as I do. Then stay away!

  1. I haven't seen the first part yet. I was waiting until I could watch both parts back to back.
