What's Old Is New Again

    I recently ordered the made-for-TV IT on DVD, first time I've watched it since its original airing. Much like the grown-up Loser Club who'd forgotten their childhood events in the story, so I forgot the various nuances and twists and subtleties of the narrative. It's neat when a tale can put you back in touch with your youth (I was 13 when I bought the hardcover).

    I helped my dad put an antenna on the roof back in the late 60's. Now I'm 54 and am putting an antenna up on the roof again. Full circle baby.

    IT was on TV on Friday night so I watched it, hadn't saw it for many years. On from 8 pm to midnight
    and was terrific, I had forgotten parts. Then it was time to go to bed......
    Two night lights and the bathroom light left on :facepalm_smiley:

    I am so hyped for this movie....When the mini-series came on TV, I was about 7...and yes...I watched it! Well.....bits and pieces....after seeing Pennywise...I was done! But when I got older, I actually sat through the entire movie and while it was a tad cheesy......Tim Curry's performance was iconic.

    I'm interested to see how this new spin on Penny wise holds up to Tim's version. I think the hardest thing about remaking a movie is trying to re-create a character that another actor has played to perfection.

    This was one of the ones I saw before reading the book and was not disappointed.
    I expect to enjoy the new version.

    I still like the mini-series, flaws and all. I still see those kids when I re-read the book.
