Movie Review: It Chapter Two

238F418B-B439-4DF6-886B-D8C2A6E38A2C

IMDB Summary:

Twenty-seven years after their first encounter with the terrifying Pennywise, the Losers Club have grown up and moved away, until a devastating phone call brings them back.

 

My Review:

Let me first say that I wasn’t the hugest fan in the world of the first IT. I thought the CGI was super odd and distracting, and I was more interested in the group dynamic of the kids which I loved, loved, loved!

Now, on to chapter 2! I really, really, liked this one. Like, the first movie, the group dynamic—this time the adults—was just as stellar. I mainly went into this movie thinking I’d love James McAvoy the best, because he’s my fave, but I actually thought Bill Hadar’s character shined here! James Rasnone, who plays Eddie, was also awesome! However, I was super disappointed in Jessica Chastain’s character as Beverly, because Sophia Lillis had done such a phenomenal job with the character in the first movie. But for some reason, Jessica always comes off as stiff to me!

If you liked Bill Skarsgård in IT, then you’ll love him here. He pulls off the clown rather well, and I always get a thrill when I see him on the screen versus some of the strange CGI for the other fears. I’m actually confused why the CGI looks so weird when there is such a good budget for these films.

Anyway, I did shed some tears in this one and the ending was utterly perfect! There’s blood and gore and friendship bonds! My faves!
