The Warner Bros./New Line Cinema logos are darker than usual, have an eerie glow around them, and it starts to rain around them, with a red balloon floating beside the New Line logo. The Ratpac logo also takes place on a cloudy and raining background. See more »
When I heard all the talk of the new movie, It, I was nothing but excited to see what the film had in store. Unfortunately, the movie didn't quite live up to the hype. There were many amazing scenes throughout the film, with top notch music, creepy moments, and surprisingly good child actors.
I think the downfall lies in the lack of scare factor, the run time, and the mass amounts of comedy. I have no issue with comedy in a horror movie, but when the movie is over 2 hours long and 60% is comedy, I start to wonder where the scares are. I found myself laughing in scenes that were supposed to be serious due to characters trying to throw in "just one more joke" which began to wear on me.
It's a good movie and should definitely worth the watch if you were a fan of the original or just looking for a new horror flick.
