The ‘It‘ reboot is in full swing of things and we’d been given a peek at the titular monster a while back. Now, we get the full picture of Pennywise, aka Bill Skarsgard, in full costume. When you look at him, you can see the influences from different time periods in the costume, which makes sense as he’s an ancient terror that’s been eating children for centuries.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Looks like we know who our Pennywise will be for the upcoming reboot of Stephen King’s seminal novel ‘It‘. Bill Skarsgard will don the clown get-up and frighten a new generation of kids just as Tim Curry did for my generation. Skarsgard has been seen in Netflix’s ‘Hemlock Grove‘ and ‘Allegiant‘. He comes from a talented acting family, his father Stellan is Erik Selvig in the Marvel Universe films beginning with ‘Thor‘, and his brother Alexander Skarsgard is known for his turn as Eric, a vampire from HBO’sTrue Blood‘.

Hey guys, Jana here,

When I heard that director Cary Fukunaga was directing a retooling of Stephen King’s ‘It‘ for the big screen, I had one question, “Who would play Pennywise?” Sure, there are many parts that were cast really well in the original mini-series event that terrified fans everywhere, and some of my ideas of what is good about it are grounded in the nostalgia of watching the show in middle school and what faces became attached to those memories. Richard Thomas as Bill, Harry Anderson as Richie, and John Ritter as Ben are just a few casting choices that I can’t imagine anyone else taking on and doing justice to what is ingrained in my memory. As much as I loved watching those actors get scared, I loved the guy that filled them with terror and caused Bill’s stutter to run sprints around his face even more, Pennywise,  performed to perfection and immortalized by Tim Curry. The announcement I had been dreading has finally been dropped and Pennywise has been re-cast.

IT CHAPTER 2 – 4K UHD Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 11th, 2019

THE FILM


The second and final chapter of ‘IT‘ brings the adult renderings of Stephen King’s kid heroes to the forefront some 27 years later in ‘IT: Chapter 2‘, that stars Bill Hader, Jessica Chastain, and James McAvoy. This sequel runs in at three hours alone, making the two films over five hours long. Director Andy Muschietti has even said there is a 6.5-hour super-cut of the movie, which leads me to ask why this wasn’t released on a streaming format, due to its episodic nature and extensive time run. Still, this second chapter is entertaining enough but suffers from major flaws in pacing, redundancy, and trying to over-complicate things.

‘IT: Chapter 2’ – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 4th, 2019

 

“‘IT: Chapter 2’ has some golden moments of horror and comedy, but it comes at an exhaustive and taxing price.”

Shazam! – 4K UHD/Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 29th, 2019

It’s easy to see that the executives at Warner Bros. and DC Comics have been listening to the fans in wanting funnier and more light-hearted superhero films after the super dark and very adult previous films. With ‘Aquaman‘, they literally threw in everything and the kitchen sink into that film to bring a wild, chaotic affair that was silly, yet fun in a “so bad it’s good” kind of way. There is much more of a balance with ‘Shazam!‘ and dare I say it in my most impressive imitation of WWE’s The Rock – “Finally! DC has made a fun movie!” I stand by that statement too as an odd choice in director David S. Sandberg (‘Lights Out‘ and ‘Annabelle: Creation‘) took his cues from Tom Hanks‘ 1980s film ‘Big‘ and made a large budget superhero movie out of it, set in the universe of The Justice League. Everyone in the film looks to be having a great time on screen with their respective characters and it transfers to smiles and laughs in its audience.

‘Pet Sematary (2019) – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 4th, 2019

The ‘Pet Sematary’ remake is downright bad in just about every way possible.

Since Stephen King’sIT‘ remake was a highly commercial and critical success, film studios are scrambling as fast as they can to remake all of Stephen King’s work to cash in on that newly found interest once again. The latest remake in the King universe is ‘Pet Sematary‘, from relatively new filmmakers Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer. Now I remember reading King’s book long ago, but I admit it has been a while since I read the whole thing, however, the important plot details and themes still resonated clearly in present day. Mary Lambert’s vision in the original 1989 movie adaptation still holds up as well in most sequences, taking the tone of King’s book and translating it well to film. There are still iconic scenes that scare me in the dark from that original movie. With this new 2019 remake though, everything looks cheap, including the scares, which come across as silly and laughable, and is downright bad in just about every way possible.

Film Review: IT!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 7th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Pennywise the Dancing Clown is back in Derry, Maine after a long hiatus and troubled production. Despite the production issues, this modern version of Stephen King’s IT is a success in many ways, but has a few tiny flaws. Let me just say that if you have a phobia or are scared of clowns in any way, this film will be quite frightening  for you. Bill Skarsgard fills the shoes of a 1993 Tim Curry as Pennywise the Clown and does a very good job. It’s not the same playful Pennywise from the 90s TV movie though. His outfit is different and Pennywise this time around seems more sinister and attacks his victims faster and more violently as we see in that first opening scene with little Georgie looking for his paper boat that went into the sewer.

The New IT Trailer Does Its Job! Damn Scary!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 27th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

The new trailer for Stephen King’s IT remake is here and looks damn good and very scary. We get a ton of new footage here with more short glimpses of Pennywise the Clown, the famous blood in the sink scene, and much more terror. I have a feeling this remake is going to be one of the scarier films of recent memory, judging just by the trailers.

Movie Quotes

Luke Skywalker:
You know, I think that R2 unit we bought may have been stolen.
Uncle Owen:
What makes you think that?
Luke Skywalker:
Well, I stumbled across a recording while I was cleaning him. He says that he belongs to someone named Obi-Wan Kenobi. I thought he might have meant old Ben. Do you know what he's talking about?
Uncle Owen:
Uh-uh.
Luke Skywalker:
I wonder if he's related to Ben.
Uncle Owen:
That wizard is just a crazy old man. Now, tomorrow I want you to take that R2 unit to Anchorhead and have it's memory erased. That'll be the end of it. It belongs to us now.
Luke Skywalker:
But what if this Obi-Wan comes looking for him?
Uncle Owen:
He won't. I don't think he exists anymore. He died about the same time as your father.
Luke Skywalker:
He knew my father?
Uncle Owen:
I told you to forget it.
