The woman in the painting, Judith the Flute Lady, who's portrayed by Tatum Lee, was originally supposed to have some minor visual effects augmentations. Her eyes were digitally altered and warped apart to give off an unnatural, unnerving look. However, Rodeo FX went on to add more digital elements onto the character to the point where most of the physical performance was almost entirely replaced. See more »
One of the televisions at the start of the film in one of the houses is a silver Sony CRT that was typical of the early 2000s rather than the late 1980s. See more »
It: Not as bad as I expected, not as good as they say
Remakes/reboots are a plenty at the moment and I'm "That" guy who gets angry whenever a new one is announced and It was no exception so naturally I went in expecting the worst.
Some remakes are direct scene for scene while others take the concept but go into business for themselves. It does a combination and for the most part it works.
With a solid Stand By Me (1986) vibe and turning the tale into a two parter we see the Losers club battle Pennywise The Clown and it turned over a nice profit at the box office and was met with critical acclaim.
I as expected do not understand the hype and am certainly not onboard but even I can't dispute that there are some real successes here.
It looks great, its well written and the young cast do a brilliant job. As for Bill Skarsgård I have to say, meh. It's not that he did a bad job, he's just performing in the shadow of someone better.
I'm a Stephen King fanboy at heart and I love both his works and most of the movie adaptations so I'm happy to see that this isn't a black mark on his record but do not want to see anymore remade.
Credit where credit is due, this is a well made feature but flawed in places and simply shouldn't have been made in the first place.
Yet another unneeded remake
Some weak moments
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
The Jewish cap also makes a great frisbee
The writers took floating too literally
Clearly the rumours were correct, two boys in one film! For shame! #sarcasm
