    In response to Jax

  • Jax Said:
I thought the movie version of IT was pretty good, although they did chickenshit out of some of the more disturbing events in the novel. If they went into Pennywise's origins in depth the movie would be three three-hour installments, like Lord of the Rings.
Part two, when they return to Derry as adults 27 years later when Pennywise returns,should be good.



Thanks for the updste. I did go read a synopsis of the book and it appears the movie took liberties with the sequence of events. The movie takes place exclusively in 1988/89 I believe. While the book has most of the scenes depicted in the film happening back in the mid-'50s.

When the movie ended, it clearly said "It Part 1" as the trailing image. So I assume the sequel will take place 27 years later but will again take liberties with the sequence of events and probably show the characters in their late 30s in the year 2015.

Anyway, I've spent a lot of time in this thread on what I thought was a very mediocre and disappointing film. Oh well.

    In response to Pete

came across this old favorite on the Firestick:

Long Gone, with William Peterson, Virginia Madsen and Dermot Mulroney

Story of the Tampico Stogies, a low minor-league baseball team, and its star player and manager, Stud' Cantrell, as they battle for the league championship amidst the corruption and racism of the American south.
