It (2017) – Another 80’s setting piece of ….

Well, how to start this…

Production Budget: $35 million, Worldwide gross to date: $700,281,748, Number 6 in the list of the most visited movie last year. Must be great right?

High ratings with the young viewing audience. How great would it be if you could filter the rating of the millennials out or use the trakt.tv discover function without being bombarded with super hero movies. (Sorry youngsters 🙂 ) The older viewing audience are handing out lower ratings and it’s interesting that the female audience liked the movie a little bit more than the males.

But I really want to mention some ‘Critic’ reviews because I’m confused and do not know what to do with them anymore.

IT 2017

I’m sorry but reading these written reviews of these experts makes me wanna laugh. What’s the definition of sell out? Only the review from The Playlist by Drew Taylor makes sense and is truthful. The rating is high but that’s a personal opinion, fine.

To sum it up


It’s just a movie that went on the Stranger Things 80’s bandwagon and spend more time getting the right props from that area than making an effort to explain some of the actions the characters do in this film, let alone providing some background information of a character. Yeah, some might argue that the alcohol abusing father was shown to provide some depth in the movie but suddenly showing a drunken father halfway the movie when it’s not really necessary or relevant to the rest of the film is just ticking a check box for the sake of ticking the check box ‘provide traumatic event childhood actor x’.

I wasted my time watching this movie. Just watch the trailer two times if you already know the clown is scary and for those who didn’t see this one or the original.. just skip it, the original one might be too outdated after 27 years.

It: Chapter Two (September 2019) … not for me.
