I hate the idea of remakes and trying to recreate Tim Curry's version of Pennywise was going to be no easy task. However, I have to eat crow on this. It was really good. Few changes from the book but with the best interest of modern audience and non-book readers in mind. Thankfully they left out the kid gangbang scene because that would have been awkward and not necessary for the film. It's barely necessary in the book. Great pacing and tension. Some CGI I didn't like but nothing too jarring. Skaarsgard is solid as Pennywise. Played the character different than Curry, which was a smart move.
Saw this tonight. Thought it was good.
