|12.03.05||Netflix|| I don't usually put TV stuff on here and since this is technically a miniseries and not a movie I guess I shouldn't but oh well it's my journal and I get to break my own rules whenever I want to. Plus it's It, which i had some sort of obsession with as a kid. After re-reading the book I decided to watch this again because I remember watching it before, during, and after reading the book for the first time. Even from the beginning I realized that it really sucked but still... something about the story and characters drew me to it. So now this is like the definitive way that I see John Ritter, Seth Green, Harry Anderson (even moreso than Night Court) and Tim Curry (sorry Rocky Horror fans)... again, even though this movie/miniseries/whatever really really is not good at all. Actually that's not true. I associate Tim Curry most with Clue.|
It was still interesting to run down all the differences between page and screen now that I'm a bit more familiar with common motivation for said changes... it kinda puts it in a different perspective. I am still pretty surprised at how much of a classic villain i held Henry Bowers to be when he's really pretty minimal in both the movie and the book. Weird again... how my biggest memories from it when I was a kid now prove to be small little things.
