Feels like every other modern horror movie; very cold and distant and not easy to connect with. It is simply not scary. There is no subtlety, no surprises, no sense of building dread. It just rears its ugly head around the corner while the camera shakes violently and a "BOOM" or an "AH!" or another loud noise shrieks through the sound system. Boring. The kids have good chemistry, though.
There are some movies that you end up seeing just because your child needs a parent to be with them. Sometimes you get lucky, and you get to see Hoodwinked. Sometimes you get unlucky, and you have to sit through It: Chapter One. The whole thing felt like an ad for a movie, rather than a movie itself. Luckily, when the sequel comes out my kids will be old enough to see it on their own.
Other than Beverley, none of the characters register beyond two-dimensional tropes. The film dumps a lot of the historical mystery from the book in favour of CGI kill scenes, sped-up monster effects & every horror movie cliché from the last 30 years. The pop music montages were grating also. Weirdly critics took issue with von Trier's latest but had no problem with the graphic images of children being mutilated here?
'It' is... decent but it could've been more.There are good performances, good laughs, good jump scares, but it's as if the film is scared to go into the darker corners of its own cinematic basement. Like a Harry Potter film in America with buckets of gore but still made for children, 'It' is a good time but it should have been a home run with a story of this narrative pedigree instead of the 1st base hit that 'It' is
Don't think of It as a horror a film more a fun ghost train or haunted house ride because you've no idea what the fuck is going to jump out at you. Skarsgard performace as the creepy fucker is done well. Never felt the need to compare his performace to Curry it stands on it's own. Also the kids are pretty good, certainly more realistic if at times over the top performaces but it in the shadow of Stranger Things.

Basta fazer uma ou duas vezes!! sendo eu asmática fico um pouco ?????? se alguém fizesse a bomba assim tantas vezes morria de ataque cardíaco mt fast with all that amount of cortisona.
