A pretty odd choice too undercut every scare in the movie, but I was less disappointed with Chapter Two than everyone else seems to be. I gave it the same star rating as the first Muscietti It movie, but if I'm being honest, that one was definitely better. Doesn't make this bad though. Final rating:★★★½ - I really liked it. Would strongly recommend you give it your time.

‘It Chapter 2' isn't as stable or as refined a film as its predecessor, and while it feels lacking by comparison, it's still far better than most studio horror films. It's epic, ambitious, crazy, witty and unafraid to go for the heart as well as the throat. As a whole, this adaptation of maybe Stephen King's greatest work feels singular in the landscape of modern horror cinema: two films built on strong interconnected relationships spread over decades, as sentimental as they are vicious, and executed on the scale of a fantasy epic. They also may be amongst the best adaptations of King's work, u... read the rest.

It's the love story between Richie and Eddie that makes this movie worth viewing twice. Looking forward to the conclusion!

If you enjoy reading my Spoiler-Free reviews, please follow my blog :) So, Chapter Two is a sequel to It (2017), and my expectations were a bit high. I really enjoyed the latter to the point of considering it one of the year's best, as well as one of the best Stephen King cinematic adaptations. Andy Muschietti returning to the director's chair and having such a fantastic cast portraying the adult versions of the Losers (not only in terms of quality acting but also regarding how well the adults look like the older versions of the young actors) are two of the main reasons why I was genuinely e... read the rest.

Wasn't a huge fan of the first but did like the young cast but the scares were non-existent. This sequel had a couple okay moments and I did like the characters as adults, but Bill Hader easily was the standout. Still wasn't very scary yet even with the lengthy running time never felt like it dragged. One day I may try watching the two back to back, but between the two, not overly impressive. 3.5/5

“You lied and I died!” Making us proud Georgie. I re-watched the 1990 mini-series and 2017 remake last month in preparation for this movie in terms of judging in quality. The 90's version had it moments, but I find some scenes unintentionally funny where it reeked of early Stephen King adaptations. 2017 was surprisingly good and a massive improvement, but laid back on cheap thrills. ‘IT: Chapter Two' was a tough act to follow up on after the monster success of the first and with the second chapter being the hardest to adapt. I thought the movie both succeeds and stumbles in parts. Alth... read the rest.

A step down, but 'It Chapter Two' is still a very good film. It is, I will say, overly long, it did bore me a little at the midway point; not in a necessarily negative way, I just wanted more. However, it regains its footing with an entertaining ending. I'm usually not a fan of cast changes in film series, but this does it to good effect. I love the characters, whether it be in this film or the preceding entry. Jessica Chastain and Bill Hader are great choices to play the older versions of Sophia Lillis and Finn Wolfhard, they are very convincing casts. James McAvoy is also a pos... read the rest.
