I saw the movie today and I thought I was going to be disappointed but I really enjoyed it.  There were a lot of things that happened in the new movie that didn't happen in the old movie/tv mini series so you don't have to worry about knowing what happens next.  I was a little creeped out when one of the boys was in that room filled with clown statues.  I heard some reactions too from people in the theater when that scene occurred.

One thing I wanted to know is in It's lair the floating kids were they dead?  I didn't know if they were like Beverly where they were sort of zoned out because of the dead lights and have been for a long time.
 I had a thought that even if Georgie was up there why didn't Bill at least wait for his body to come down so they could bury him properly.  Another thought which I think is the more obvious answer is that It ate him.  I wasn't actually expecting them showing It tearing Georgie's arm off but I was really impressed at that at the same time.  Sorry if that sounds gruesome.  I just mean they weren't afraid to go to that level.

I think it does quite admirably. Touches like updating the timeframe so the sequel will have the heroes as adults in our time, and their fears being changed from Universal monsters, and the eerily anachronistic mishmash of Pennywise's design are all great ideas. The kids are great, and set quite a challenge for their successors in the sequel, and there are some great scenes and setpieces. The miniseries is definitely a lot easier to watch, and has more cult charm than terror, due to budget, story, and Tim Curry being funnier than he should have been.

Overall, the fact that this follow-up to a beloved precedent is getting praise and is even being regarded as the better adaptation is very impressive. Most reboots and remakes don't get half as much favor as the originals.

Also, IT visits Derry every 27 years. This movie came out 27 years after the miniseries.

Yep I found that out too, it's really neat.  I was also surprised, given that this was a remake that it as good.  I've seen a few remakes so far and they weren't really that good in my opinion.  I actually feel like I liked this version of It better.  It also explains the detail of "they/we all float".  That wasn't really explained in the mini series.  I just assumed the dead bodies of the kids floated in the sewers.  I actually sort of felt bad for It when he was crying because the kids were beating him up.

My mom adores Stephen King but I've never read his works...but this movie makes me want to start! I watched the original It and I usually love 80s movies but I could not follow the plot at all towards the end. So now I want to read the book and see the miniseries.

The new movie was one of the scariest horror movies in my opinion, probably because you care so damn much about those kids. And yes that opening scene was a super intense way to start the film and set the tone. But I also found the movie to be one of the funniest! It was a great feeling laughing and screaming in the theater with everyone. I like how they got into many of the characters' backstories, including that of Pennywise.

Bonus: the scenes with the creepy manor outside were filmed in the town next to me, so we could visit the set :D
