Did you expect the thread title to somehow change?

I don't think Pennywise ever left. I mean sure there were 4 years between their last 2 albums, but they've been releasing material fairly consistently for almost 30 years now.

Also they suck.

I watched the original when it came out on TV, and read the book several years later.

I finally got around to watching this recently, and I was pleasantly surprised, I thought it was really good for a horror movie.

Chapter One is amazing.

Chapter Two is a bit on the long side, and is less of a horror movie and more graphic, appalling and action packed.

I really enjoyed chapter 2. If you've read the books, the ending was...well, the ending.

I did think it was funny how the running joke throughout the movie was how terrible the endings to Billy's books are when that has always been the gripe about King.

************** SPOILER ALERT REQUEST FOR SPOILERS *******************************










^ So they still just went with a big ol spider thing I take it? I'm going to see it this weekend, just hoping it's a little more scary than the mini-series big ol spider thing.

Question (maybe someone who has read the book can answer) -- during the flashbacks in Part 2, to the parts when they were in the underground fort and stuff... when chronologically did that take place? Mike and Ben didn't join the Losers Club until the events of Part 1 and at the end of Part 1, Beverly said she was going to live with her aunt?

^

The Smoke Hole chapter follows the Apocalyptic Rockfight and The Album chapters. So Mike has joined the Losers (after the Rockfight in the beginning of The Album) and the Losers have figured out that Pennywise is more-or-less "part" of Derry - they realize that IT is Derry's history. Ben has read about the "smokehole" ceremony in a fictitious book "Ghosts of the Great Plains" which ceremony is supposed to provide guidance to the tribe (not a ceremonial spell to fight the Glamour/IT).

This is all part of the "July of 1958" section. After the Smokehole follows Eddy's broken arm (a significant foreshadowing) and Patrick Hockstetter's demise by the blood sucking bugs and eventually by the Losers coming up with the idea to cast the silver "bullet" or slug for a slingshot to slay Pennywise when in Neibolt House in the vulnerable werewolf form (the idea now implicit that the key to slaying a Glamour is to force it into a shape of one's choosing for which one is prepared - their belief that the silver slug would slay a werewolf would effect It in that shape).

Ah okay I considered it was around that time, it just didn't make sense to me that they would be so happy/carefree like that when they had already experienced a lot of horrific images from Pennywise and if they knew he was actively hanging around in Derry messing with them. But then again, they were kids, and kids can shrug off a lot of things.

A major theme in King's novels. Kids incorporate the bizarre into their world view whilst an adult's mind just goes into cognitive shutdown. IIRC, this notion is rather strongly presented in Salem's Lot as well as in IT.
