    yup, #1 horror film of all time apparently.

    Mr. King finally had a film truly knock one out of the park. :applause:

    Pretty much par for the course.

    I'm uncanny like that; if everyone universally raves about the latest 'thing' and it makes a zillion bucks I probably won't like it.

    Not trying to be edgy or hip 'n cool...

    Just the way it always turns out.


    TV shows (when I watched TV)......if a new one was aired and I liked it I could pretty much take it to the bank it would be shit-canned after a season or two.

    :laugh2:

    Or the things that made the show good and interesting get thrown away in the second season and it becomes practically an entirely different show.

    Drama's become soap operas,...Horror becomes Drama,...or they introduce a kid or something that changes the dynamics completely.

    Reminded me a lot of Stand by Me.

    I kept expecting them to get leaches in their underpants. :laugh2:

    Not scary, but we are adults, what is really scary other than real life. :dunno:

    Really not that bad, just a different take than the book or the mini-series. In that we see the kids, then I assume the adults, instead of the adults remembering they were kids ... or something like that.

    When was the last time any horror movie got any real buzz? The public is craving a good one, and this one is well-reviewed. Everyone has to see it because everyone is talking about it, hence the high box office.

    You're definitely a dinosaur, because anyone who remembers a time of truly great horror has to be a dinosaur. Compared to its peers this is a masterpiece, and it's already poised to become a Halloween classic. When was the last time that happened?

    I also noticed the majority of your criticisms were dissatisfaction with deviations from the book and/or TV miniseries, which are irrelevant to anyone who hasn't read/seen it or just doesn't care.

    I'm happy for Stephen King's grand grand grand kid's college fund. I think they should give Bill an Oscar.

    ALL HAIL IT!

    I was raised on The Exorcist, The Omen, Halloween, Texas Chain, Rabid, American Werewolf in London.....

    I must be "critical." It was OK. Public opinion means nothing to me-as I have stated before-most people are morons. Luckily, I see movies for free. I just watched T2-LOVED it..........I only dislike 9/10ths of the movies I see.

    I just saw Mother last week-0/4 FEZZstars. Damn, loud+jump-cutting-utter tripe. I think Jeepers Creeepers was better than new IT.

    +1 Jeepers Creepers.

    Starts out very strong. Meanders by the end but a hell of a strong beginning.

    New IT relied on LOUD music and that "stutter/shutter" effect.

    Oh No, here comes a clown having a seizure!

    Agree completely. Nothing at all was scary about this movie, they relied on loud noises to startle you and the dialogue sucked. As soon as I sat down 5 minutes into it, I knew that, oh boy, I have to be here for 2 more hours :shock:.

    I'm watching Hemlock Grove;Skarsgard is the EVIL love-child of James Spader and Steve Buscemi.
