It (2017)

Time, how fleeting are thy....

This Stephen King novel, was publish in 1986.

I read it during 1989, because a friend recommended it.

I don't remember liking it (due to Stephen King's writing style) and was mildly amused by the 1990 miniseries because John-Boy (Richard Thomas) from The Waltons was in it.

Again, I was not overwhelmed with "OMG I luv this so much."

Just watched this earlier, and I am tickled pink!!

Why?

For those who is "used to" my reviews, I do tend to "go on and on" about nonsensical reminiscence.  I apologise, if I am reverting to my normal style of writing.

The reason why I am tickled pink in, in the book, the story (when the kids were young) took place in the 50s (about the same time as Stand by Me)

In this iteration (this movie), the cleverly moved forward the timeline of the kid to the 80s?

Again, Why?

I have a feeling, they (script writers) sneakily, brought it to the 80s, because alot of people would remember reading IT during the 80s. So they can relate very substantially, because they live it.

Smart S.O.B.s..... (pardon my french)

All the 80s references, were NOT lost to me, and as I had indicated, it added to my viewing pleasure.

Production Designer Claude ParΓ© did a fantastic job (bringing back the 80s). Same goes to Set Decoration, Rosalie Board.

And of course Costume designer, Janie Bryant.

Script, was great. (I did not appreciate the books going back and forth between the adults and children)

Cast, strong (poor Georgie.....)

And, I totally agree with the R rating. Kids, please do not watch this until you can handle it.

Great Movie and the fact it is horror, heaven....

If you are a horror/Stephen King fan, you will enjoy it.

This is a very faithful adaptation of the book

This runs rings around the Dark Towers movie, that's for sure.
