I always enjoyed the 90's miniseries but it wasn't a very good adaptation of King's novel. Hopefully (fingers crossed), this adaptation will get more into the meat of King's novel and will include more of the disturbing images that were in the novel.


I took into account what you said in another topic and ordered the IT book (it was you that said it was your favourite novel ?), received it this morning, wow it's quite a hefty book, look forward to reading it although i may try and get hold of the Tim Curry film first, watch it then see what MORE the book has if you understand me :mrgreen:

I will warn you jellybelly, the miniseries is full of cheesy dialogue. As far as the ending of the miniseries goes Rhino, it didn't really explain much about IT and where it came from, but the novel goes into it in much greater detail and the whole spider thingy makes much more sense.

Much as i enjoyed the TV movie the book is WAY better. I am only up to around page 220 but i agree, once the new film/s get made they will have to be rated 18 / R, even the part where Ben meets the gang, the dam scene, is quite brutal not just a "oh hi guys" like the TV movie had :mrgreen:

Yeah, the kids aren't quite as proper in the novel as they were in the tv movie. They cuss, some smoke, and the novel itself is of a more mature nature than the miniseries. Pennywise is way scarier in the novel too. In the miniseries you see Tim Curry telling corny jokes and yukking it up, but the Pennywise in the novel was very disturbing and not funny at all. To tell the truth, I would rather it be an NC-17 rating or Unrated movie so it could be even closer to the novel but studios usually see those ratings as a death sentence for a movie, so I will be satisfied to get the R rating.

Yes most studios go for the 'safe' option when making movies unfortunately which i suppose makes sense for making money but this is why i love the medium of the DVD, despite what we may see on the cinema you can be sure they will release an uncut / unedited / directors cut etc of the film.

I rarely even go to the movies anymore because of the fact that you can usually pick up the uncut/unedited/unrated DVD and get to see the director's true vision for less in a rental store, or for nothing via the internet if you're the thieving kind.

I hardly go the cinema too but for other reasons, the prices and the people, it annoys me how people pay what can be a lot of money, ticket prices, popcorn, sweets, as a rough guide here in the UK, around £8.00 for a ticket, £4.00 for popcorn and so on to just sit there chattering away through the film or just messing around in general, i pay to watch and enjoy ha,ha :mrgreen:

If I go to see a film, by myself, then I go during a weekday, when the kids are in school.
Cheaper prices.
Less people
And the Vue cinema near me does a kids meal type thing.
Drink, small popcorn, chocolate bar..
And that does me.
So change from a ten pound note..

Unless I go double feature, then change from 15 pounds.

That's why I prefer to watch DVD's instead . . . potty breaks, snacks, whatever - without missing any of the action. And it's usually cheaper than a ticket. :D :D

Nice, they should do the same up this neck of the woods. I usually go to the cinema in the Printworks in Manchester that's probably why it's pricey. I too prefer viewings in the week but circumstances usually veer towards the weekend. In fact me and the missus are going to watch that new Spiderman film on Saturday.

I personally quite enjoyed the Star Trek reboot with the actors who were selected to play the famous characters.

So I say bring it on.

And this is from a serious Star Wars fan. Yet even stronger Middle Earth fan.

Thank you for the warning.

It's sad that they will continue to strip the flesh off the corpse of the franchise to make these brainless reboots/sequels.

Can remember like it was yesterday those worms going into the ears.

Looking back it seems tame now, but back then....

And in the "is this really necessary" department, they're now going to make a US version of DOC MARTIN.
