After walking two miles at a walking meetup in Woodbridge, which ended at the AMC theater at around 7 pm, I bought my movie ticket for IT Part 2, and went inside the theater for the movie meetup. The people from the meetup were already inside the dark theater 2 room. I ran into one of the when entering. I decided to sit in my usual back area. The theater room seemed crowded but it wasn’t completely full.
The movie is basically about a group of loser kids who were dorks. But this Part 2 is about them reuniting 27 years later to confront their past issues.
IT Part 2 was better than I expected. It was well-paced and kept my interest throughout the film. It was actually funny more than scary, which was when the weird clown creeps up in dark solitary places. And, the scary part is the surprising shock affect of its creepy face jumping at the screen, which would have been even creepier if the movie was three-dimensional. The special effects were interesting more than scary.
I realized that the creepy clown represented their fears and insecurities as kids. Now that they are adults, they were overcoming their fears and insecurities by fighting back. Past memories often resurfaced as the group reunite at their childhood town. They each dealt with their past childhood fears as they revisited old haunts.
Therefore, much of the weird creatures appeared more comical and entertaining because the Losers Club soon realized they had nothing to fear. The Losers Club finally grew up, feeling at peace with themselves and their past, which enabled them to finally move on to the present as well as be more hopeful for their future.
This movie was released today, September 6th. Directed by Andres Muschietti, produced by Barbara Muschietti, David Katzenberg, Roy Lee, and Dan Lin, and written by Gary Dauberman, although story was a Stephen King novel, it is a three-hour entertaining film. I enjoyed this movie. I didn’t realize it was a 3-hour movie because it was paced well.
As I walked out of the theater, I noticed it was 10:17 pm and very humid. I felt sticky. After chatting for a while by the theater, I decided to go home at 10:30 pm. I think the rest went to some hangout elsewhere.
