The thing is there is always so much stuff to watch. I would have finished it by now, if it wasn't for that. But there is Netflix, there are new blu-ray releases, there are re-releases of classic films, there are tons of extras to get through.
It's a lot. I'm not complaining though.
That’s my problem too. Not enough time for everything, but I have managed to catch the first few episodes of The Outsider. Very good. Also want to try The Witcher soon. And waiting for IT2 to hit HBO..

The Witcher is a quick, easy watch - only eight episodes. I did watch only two each time though, but fairly quick. The timeline confuses many people.

The Outsider and Mr. Mercedes haven't been broadcast here at all. Haven't seen them yet. Castle Rock is available here, but only on DVD not blu-ray, so haven't got it yet even though it's fairly cheap by now.

The kinds of fans that do hit that point make the entire fanbase look bad. Especially when most of the production team are just doing their jobs.
It's a feeling of desperation. They can't control what the makers are doing with a beloved property/franchise, so they wish them dead altogether. It goes rather far, but it's understandable to a degree.
Also not everyone is creative. Creative people can just go and make their own thing, so it will bother them less.

People complain that IT chapter 2s ending is anticlimactic but I thought it was an interesting way to do it at least, maybe I’m looking at it from an adaptation perspective and not a movie one, but it’s a much more fitting end to a monster than being overpowered by a group of preteens
I guess Pennywise never heard of 'Sticks and stones will break my bones but names will never hurt me'. :p

Pennywise is a 21st century type of guy and he knows words can be harmful, especially to those with mental health issues and Pennywise obviously has some mental health issues since he likes to eat children, don't think that's exactly a sign of proper mental health. Sure, sure, he's a shape shifting monster but even shape shifting monsters can have mental health problems, I mean look at Jason and Norman Bates, obvious mother issues. No, they can't shape shift but they're monsters in human form.

Anywho, I got a sleeveless denim jacket the other day, biker variety, and I'm thinking of getting a patch for the back, thinking of going with the modern Pennywise but haven't decided. I mean the jacket wasn't super expensive but if I pay to get the patch sewn on professionally, that's an investment, and I need to make sure I won't eventually be like... "eew... I'm so sick of Pennywise" because if that happens, its back to the embroider place, they'll charge to remove and charge to put another patch on. Decisions.. decisions.

How about a nice depiction of a balloon? Never goes out of style and you’ll be a hit at the kids parties!!
Actually, kidding aside, I decided I'd go with the wolves from the Wolfen. As cool as Pennywise is, wolves never go out of style and I've been a wolf fan for eons. Plus, Pennywise would draw way too much attention and I'm not seeking tons of attention...

Either that or it was just a horrible movie, with stupid characters that dismantled every single thing that Star Wars fans liked about the series.
