IT: Chapter Two Review

My Starburst Magazine Review

Pennywise, you teaser!

My anticipation for this film has been difficult to quantify. Simply put, the story has got me through some of the hardest times in my life. It’s the thing I’ve always gone back to. Because the story is so personal to me, I’m really aware of how my subjective, personal opinions impact on my impression of how effective various portrayals not only of the story, but of the characters, are. IT is an obviously tricky one to do because the core characters float (geddit?) between archetype and people I’m still half convinced I’m going to wind up chatting to at the bus queue one of these days (far more on that in my book 😉 ). And that’s without adapters having to navigate the story’s supernatural aspects or THAT conclusion…

Anyway, here’s a link to my review of the film for Starburst magazine. It’s partially my initial thoughts, partly constrained by the publication word count (that one hurt ;-). More coming soon, enjoy!
