Pros: I honestly got more scared this time around because instead of scaring children in the first one they amped it up to target a more adult audience. I had a few more jump scares and other moments in the film were more creepy and disturbing, which was great for a horror movie. I only remember bits and pieces of the very old tv version of IT and I enjoyed this most recent one a whole lot more. Mainly for the access and up to date technology we have today, it made it more exciting to watch. Bill Skarsgård continues to prove he's the better clown, Tim Curry had his moment but if you were to compare the two, bill has him beat. The adult versions of the kids were so spot on and I was in awe how they adapted their mannerisms and looks. Whoever was in charge of the casting did an amazing job and I can't say that enough.
Cons: The movie was too long in some aspects. I also think they tried to rush an ending and add too much information in scenes where it didn't need, or they could have done a trilogy and spaced the story a little further.
I was prepared for the runtime but I can see that being a problem for some. It is still very entertaining and worth going to see on the big screen.
