beautiful effect

IT (2017)

I saw IT (2017) for the first time. Here are my thoughts:

Pros

  • The acting in this movie is fantastic. All of the child actors do a great job and Bill Skarsgård delivered one of the most terrifying performances in recent memory. Pennywise could be one of my new favourite horror monsters.
  • The characters are also extremely well written. Whether it is the likeable main cast or the vile bullies they have to deal with, I couldn’t help but feel like these were real people in a very surreal experience. Everyone has clear motivations and backstories.
  • The cinematography and editing were on point. Not very often you have a horror movie that is so beautiful.
  • The special effects were well used to add to the scares rather than detract. There were times where I couldn’t tell VFX from practical and Skarsgård’s commitment to the role only made this more difficult.
  • The ending leaves you hooked for more. Definitely coming back for the sequel.

Cons

  • The gender politics of this movie suuuuuck and reinforce some awful, outdated Nice Guy tropes. It doesn’t help that the only girl in the main cast has a fear associated with sexual abuse.

Rating

I really enjoyed this movie and if all horror films were as good as IT I would head to the theatres for scares way more often. 8/10

REMEMBER HOW VIKTOR SKATES STAY CLOSE TO ME TO YUURI IN THE ABSOLUTE FIRST SCENE 

AND THEN HE GETS THIS SMILE ON HIS FACE

THIS IS THE SOFTEST VIKTOR

especially when you consider how sad he looks while skating the same program at Worlds, because although it might be an artistic choice I also think it’s meant to highlight the deep longing Viktor feels for someone to be close to 

NOT ONLY DOES HE GET TO PAIR SKATE THIS PROGRAM WITH THE LOVE OF HIS LIFE HE ALSO FINALLY GETS TO PERFORM IT KNOWING THAT HE’S NOT ALONE ANYMORE BECAUSE YUURI WILL NEVER LEAVE HIM

this smile saved my life

Yevara

They’re beautiful, intelligent creatures. Our closes tie to our past. A Yevara’s song is so beautiful, it can coax the sun out of hiding. Reveal the stars.
