| It: Not as bad as I expected, not as good as they say
Remakes/reboots are a plenty at the moment and I'm "That" guy who gets angry whenever a new one is announced and It was no exception so naturally I went in expecting the worst.

Some remakes are direct scene for scene while others take the concept but go into business for themselves. It does a combination and for the most part it works.

With a solid Stand By Me (1986) vibe and turning the tale into a two parter we see the Losers club battle Pennywise The Clown and it turned over a nice profit at the box office and was met with critical acclaim.

I as expected do not understand the hype and am certainly not onboard but even I can't dispute that there are some real successes here.

It looks great, its well written and the young cast do a brilliant job. As for Bill Skarsgård I have to say, meh. It's not that he did a bad job, he's just performing in the shadow of someone better.

I'm a Stephen King fanboy at heart and I love both his works and most of the movie adaptations so I'm happy to see that this isn't a black mark on his record but do not want to see anymore remade.

Credit where credit is due, this is a well made feature but flawed in places and simply shouldn't have been made in the first place.

The Good:

Looks great

The Bad:

Yet another unneeded remake

Some weak moments

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

The Jewish cap also makes a great frisbee

The writers took floating too literally

Clearly the rumours were correct, two boys in one film! For shame! #sarcasm
