    Long thread name I know, sorry :( But I was thinking the whole Patrick Hockstetter scene with the fridge would be pretty gruesome. *SPOILER*
    Also the scene in the beginning with the kissing bridge, where Pennywise is taking a bite out of the side of that guy(drawing a name blank).

    To do a spoiler:

    [ spoiler ] say what you need too.... [/spoiler]

    Close up the spaces between those brackets above and you've got it.

    The Nameless M-O-O-N - That spells Nameless

    Adrian Mellon his name was.

    I'd like to see Mike speaking to the old man about the past big events such as the Bradley gang massacre, the Blackspot fire, Ironworks explosion. They could film small vignettes as flashbacks. Patrick should be a part of it somehow, can't see anyone including
    him suffocating his brother or him pleasuring Henry
    but maybe the fridge scene. I'd like to see the scene where the young lad who run away from home got killed.

    As good as Tim Curry's Pennywise was, I'd like to see his suit the traditional silver like the book.

    2 things I think should stay gone are
    Tom beating up Bev's friend and Henry poisoning Mike's dog

    As much as it made sense and was a vital part of the book.

    The Losers getting it on in the sewer

    would be utterly horrendous and likely illegal to film.

    The gore should stay however.

    The history of Derry stuff will likely not make it to the film. It can be alluded to, scenes of Mike writing in his journal, look over a collection of newspaper clippings, etc. The most one can hope for is that it'll be made as a separate special feature like the Watchmen movie did with Under the Hood and Tales of the Black Frieghter.

    There needs to be. The Original "It", starring John Boy's Mole, was not good. Tim Curry was fabulous. I hope he does the new one if there is a new one.

    I actually haven't seen the movie. I only read the book. What does Stephen King think about the movie, I wonder?

    They would probably block it out! Or I don't know I mean things are changing these days.

    Frankenstein decapitating Vic. Basically anything having to do with that encounter in the sewers.

    The new version of the library scene should be interesting.

    I think the giant bird monster chasing Mike Hanlon at the old millworks would be amazing to see on the big screen!

    I think the sex in the sewer scene is also incredibly important, but in a movie they should probably just hint at it. And I agree, the massive bird chasing Mike was always one of my favorite scenes!
