Do they keep the sewer orgy in?
I found that to be really anti-climactic. I mean, here's this being that can take on any size and shape it wants, yet it can be destroyed by a simple tongue lashing. I mean, when it was small...I felt sorry for it. In the book, I don't believe the deadlights were actually destroyed because they weren't manifest in this reality.I really enjoyed the verbal beatdown the adults gave Pennywise as it felt more thematically fitting and the beatdown was not as exceptional as the one in the 90s miniseries.
Someone brought that up in a twitter thread and some idiot argued that because Stephen King is a straight white male he has no business writing about lgbt hardships or some schlock.I don't really get why people would be upset over that scene. Gay people actually did get beaten up and even killed over being gay, and in a way, doesn't showing them going through hardships like that humanize them and therefore make them equal in people's eyes? Regardless of sex, race, sexual preference, ect., people from all walks of like probably experienced something horrible and traumatic. Whether it be through being the recipient or seeing someone you care about suffering it.
Honestly, as someone who's never read the book, I was more confused over why that scene was there to begin with as it barely had anything to do with the main characters other then indicating to them that Pennywise has returned.
Also I like the scene at the store where Stephen King makes a cameo and essentially pokes fun at himself.
Nothing ruins a movie more than people laughing at it when they aren't supposed to. I once saw Bride of Frankenstein at a special showing and people were cracking up every other scene. It was fucking irritating.The cinema wouldn't shut the fuck up where i saw it, laughing through every scene, Including when Pennywise died.
No. No way in hell they could do something like that in a mainstream movie.Is the kiddie gang bang scene in the IT movies?
I remember that scene. Henry and Patrick (I think he was there?) were lighting their farts on fire and Beverly was spying on them.The book was just so fucking weird that when I got to that part I was thinking, "at least this is better than 10 pages of a mid tier villain's farts" (yes that was in the book)
The book kinda went into this by saying that as a 5 year old he really didn't question the strangeness of a clown in a sewer. Some 5 year olds are really stupid so I kinda buy that.More unsolicited opinion: was Georgie exceptional? Just straight exceptional? Why would he go into a sewer? Were children stupider in the 50s?
