Just watched the new IT, I'll keep it short. Not even as good as the old ones imo. And they weren't spectacular.

{Ed018's Note - I just watched it yesterday as well and I liked it but it wasn’t as good as I was hoping. The movie felt rushed to me and needed to find a way to develop the characters and their friendship better and slowly introduce Pennywise as what was after them.}

Yeah, defo rushed. I was looking forward to seeing the characters grown up aswell, so hopefully they make a second one based on that and they sort it out. I didn't like the fact that the kids was beating pennywise up. Took the horror out of it for me. Add to the fact he got them on there own individually, but never dmanaged to do anything to them, he should have just terrorized them from a distance. Building up to the final part.

The other thing that spoilt it for me was the ott use of cgi on pennywise,there was just no need for it and made him more funny than frightening. I also wanted more dialogue from pennywise,the sewer scene with georgie was really menacing but apart from that we didn't get that side of him again,just a few words here and there. I personally liked the finale and i loved the casting for the losers club but like you say their character development seemed very rushed. I did enjoy the film but because my expectations were so high i felt a bit underwhelmed by it.

I think there are two main things that caused the divided opinions about this film, expectations and comparisons.

I agreed there were a number of flaws like you guys mentioned here, but I still feel that this is a very good film. The kids were awesome and innocently funny. Some of the scenes were quite scary. And yes wiggy, that sewer scene, truly menacing.

Oh ya. That scene when the girl pushed the door revealling the NKOTB poster really made me laugh.

Anyone watched arrival yet? Watched it last night, enjoyed it. Got a good story, and different to the usual aliens v humans kind of film. Worth a watch if you like that kind of film, such as the day the earth stood still.

But The Day the Earth Stood Still was crap. I'm sure you meant the idea or concept of the story, right DK?


2.) 25 Jan 2017 19:23:58
Yeah, it's just similar, not same story or anything. It's different to the usual ones


3.) 03 Feb 2017 19:12:54
It is a good movie, with excellent visuals and a good story. There is a sort of a twist that is connected to the aliens and what they want.

Anyone watched Lights Out?

I have watched the original short. Creepy as hell. Haven't watch the full feature film yet, but the online reviews mostly praised the film. Have you, Darkknight?


2.) 06 Jan 2017 13:58:16
No mate, going to watch it tonight I think. I'll let you know how it is.


3.) 06 Jan 2017 23:34:34
Don't bother mate, waste of time!


4.) 07 Jan 2017 03:08:31
Haha. It was bad, darkknight? Sorry to hear that, darkknight.

I thought it will be as good as the original short. Have u watch it?


5.) 08 Jan 2017 07:11:51
The short sent shivers through my spine,I'll give the movie a miss as I don't want to spoil my experience of the short


6.) 08 Jan 2017 11:34:20
Good point wiggy. I'm sure you have watched his other shorts. He is really good, isn't he?

I believe there are lots who came into the mainstream after making great shorts.

Btw, I will end up watching this anyway, as I love horror films.

Just got back from the cinema, took the missus to watch Passenger. I enjoyed it. Worth a watch if you liked The Martian and Gravity. Not one of the best films ever, but worth a watch.

TheDarkKnight

{Ed003's Note - Cheers DK.}

Just finished watching Usual Suspects ed, definitely worth a watch. Kind of saw the twist coming at the end though, but still a great film.

TheDarkKnight

{Ed001's Note - ok cheers, I will add it to my 'to watch list' and try and get round to it soon.}

{Ed001's Note - love that film! Menace to Society as well, that is a good watch, with a great soundtrack if you like rap.}
