Re: Stephen King's 'It: Chapter Two' (September 6, 2019)
Disappointing for me, not what I was looking for and I quite liked the first one.
It became very formulaic and repetitive especially during the artifact finding thing. Person goes here alone, audience knows monster will turn up suddenly, monster does, will the monster look scary or impressive is really the only question.... then repeat.
After about 2 hours I was waiting for it to end I'm sorry to say, for me by the end when they came upon doing the ceremony the story seemed virtually abandoned.
I thought Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy were solid as they always are, I kind of snickered at the casting of adult Ben - an apparent underwear model basically. I didn't really like the constant one liners of Bill Hader. Does he have to crack a joke in every. fucking. line he says?
I give the makers credit for the large scale monster fest they went all out for, but there's only so far you can do with it when the story falls apart.
Also they really should've made the effort to take on the whole cosmic version of IT in deep space and The Turtle etc.

I will build a great wall and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me and Ill build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.
