I’m not really too big into today’s horror films. I thought going into “It” would be a disappointment waiting to happen, but I tried to keep an open mind. Let me just say this. The film actually surprised me. I actually really enjoyed this film. Yeah, there’s some stuff I didn’t care for too much. First off, I didn’t find the film all that scary. there’s definitely that creepy vibe to it, but nothing that made me grip my seat in terror. The jump scares didn’t startle me, I could already tell they were coming. now, on to what I liked about the movie. The child actors in this movie weren’t total garbage, and they managed to make some likable characters in the process. Congrats on that. Bill Skarsgård was great as Pennywise I have to say. Another added bonus is the film’s soundtrack. There’s lots of homages to the 80s, with some new wave music and even a Gremlins poster in Bill’s bedroom. I grinned from ear to ear once I heard XTC’s “Dear God” and The Cure’s “Six Different Ways.” Overall, I recommend “It”, if you haven’t seen it (haha) already.
Rating : 7.5 / 10
☾ okay well I tried on this AU. it’s late where I am so I don’t know what I was thinking. I gave up on the group that I made cuz I posted my group like a bunch of times and no one commented like how can I make friends on here, god damn it. I even make the kik group :(

For those who might hate this movie because it’s “emotionally manipulative”, just shut up.
Only the Brave:
This film kind of came out of nowhere. I mean, I’ve been excited to see it for a while but it’s not like I’ve known about this movie for years and it’s not like I had low expectations but nothing could’ve prepared me for how great this movie actually was.
The best part of this movie hands down was the acting and the character dynamics.
The writing for the characters, the banter, the development and the acting was all very well handled. The entire movie is really just building this family dynamic and the director made the decision to give time to that so that the audience can connect with them and grow to love them and sure enough, I did. It’s so nice to see a movie with character arcs. There are a lot of shit films like Suicide Squad, Assassin’s Creed. Hell, even Kingsman: The Golden Circle. It seems like writers have forgotten that a character needs to start and end a different person. It’s nice to watch a mainstream movie in 2017 where we can watch the characters grow as the movie goes on. Not to say the 2017 and movies in general have forgotten about that, it’s just not as often you see it or does as well as this movie.
Let’s talk about the acting. Josh Brolin has never really given a bad performance but in this movie, he fucking kills it. His character has a few layers to him and he plays them all off amazingly. (Continued in Comments)
