Kinda weird they cast a girl who looks just like Amy Adams in the first movie, then got Jessica Chastain to play her adult version.

Amy Adams already played opposite that actor in Sharp Objects, as her older self

Good thing then! I remember my wife watched the whole thing but I think I lost interest after the first episode.

Saw the new chapter yesterday and i fucking loved it. They manage to do a very compelling finale even if the source material is very hard to work with.
The cast is insanely good, the practical fx and cgi are also amazing.

Cant wait to see both of them back to back.

Great go hear VG. It’s been getting mixed reviews but I (mostly) trust your judgment :lol:

Now if I can just convince my wife to leave her alone with the baby for three hours.

yeah, i dont get the reviews. I also dont think the first one is flawless..i would say this one corrects a few thing while still does a few weird choices also....
But the framing is so fucking beautiful, camera movements, set pieces, acting...its all top notch.

I would adore for Muschietti to shoot a nightmare on elm street movie, he is perfect...hell he even shoots a Nightmare On Elm Street 5 sign!!

Im still reeling about last night movie, and this is actually a very good piece on what It really meant too back in the day, and of course these days.

I enjoyed the sequel very much. Not as good as the first, more uneven, but not even remotely the train wreck some reviewers would have me believe.

Much darker in parts, scarier haunts, more inventive monsters. Hader stole every scene. A couple of the casting choices aren’t great.

But overall a fun sequel that was very faithful to the book, and therefor not as “fun” as the kid stuff but ultimately more fun than its source material, while still holding pretty dang faithful to it.

Good popcorn flick. Excited for the super cut.

Not sure how old your kid is, but I’d say this one is a bit scarier and tougher than the first

I agree with VG about the finale and FX/CGI. Both the kid and adult who played Mike have not been very good, and have had terrible material to work with.

She was 13 when the last one was out. She should be ok.

Stephen King is the most overrated human on earth.

Stop it Burt, he’ll go down with Lovecraft as a master storyteller, even if his dialogue and endings often suck.

Oh there was a subplot that was missing, it was in the book and early reviews said it was there, so I’m guessing it was cut before release:

Spoiler: show
We didn’t seems Eddie’s wife and Bev’s husband team up and pursue their spouses to Derry.

Watching previews in front of this right now. Hope it’s as good as the first one. Also just saw that it’s almost 3 hours long. Jesus Christ.

Yeah, i thought it was very weird to leave that out. But still, the book has so many things going on...

We enjoyed it. I really like King making fun of his career-long criticism of not ending books well. I’m glad the interspersed the kids in. It’s been so long since I’d seen the first one I wouldn’t have remembered who was who. Except for the girl and the black kid.
Question:
Spoiler: show
Was the implication by the carved initials that Richie was gay and loved Eddie?

Re: your spoiler — yes. Also pennywise talking about the character’s “secret.” It’s not in the book, btw.
