Michael's Book Babble

I'm an indie author and a scribbler of inane babble. I talk about books I've read/liked. Or at least, that's the plan.

 

Most of the reviews will be considered "mini-reviews." Usually, it's mostly my reaction to what I've been reading. There are people who are far better at doing full and helpful reviews. But I still have fun doing them, and hope you enjoy them!

So we saw IT tonight...

...and it was amazing! Simply amazing!

 

Of course, they had to cut out and change a lot. But for the most part, the changes really work. And kudos to Bill Skarsgård! He had some giant shoes to fill, and he was excellent. Bummed we didn’t see him all that much in this, but then again I also admire the fact that the movie didn’t overuse him.

 

The kids are fantastic. Every. Single. One. Of. Them. (especially the kid from Stranger Things)

 

While it wasn’t exactly jump-out-of-your-seat scary, it was certainly creepy enough.

 

Loved it. Loved it, loved it, LOVED IT. And that’s saying something because I’m usually harsh on the movie adaptation of anything I’m currently reading or have read.

Go see it. Bring your friends! We all float down here.

 

We. All. FLOAT.
