It (2017) or Get Out?
About to order up a movie in a bit. Get Out is supposed to be “genre bending.”

it's not "genre bending", whatever that means


both are decent rents though. Just pick one depending on your mood

It is a better movie, but Get Out is more unique/novel

I just saw get out for the first time not half an hour ago. I liked IT more but Get Out was a great movie nonetheless

Both were not as good as hyped but still very good movies.

Get out was good but somewhat predictable. But still very good and very much worth watching. I would put it definitely above “a rental” category. Not that there’s much choice now.

I’m a big Stephen King fan and read IT as a kid and adult. I was disappointed based on the hype. I think it missed the connection between the kids and their belief in magic or naïveté that kids dreams/interests/superstitions wouldn’t be important. But it was still a very good movie. If I didn’t have to compare it to the book it would have been great.

I’m not hard to please. Both are good to really good movies. Just not the GOAT status many want to give each. If you miss either you are doing yourself a disservice.

Wouldn't being a pederast only add to the creepiness factor?

I thought the movie was well done especially in the effects department. I don't get scared or creeped out usually, but some of the images were downright unsettling.

Biggest flaw in the film for me was it focused a bit too much on the "scare" scenes and needed a bit more in the bonding of the kids. A simple "rock war" against bullies wasn't enough for me to buy in that their bond and friendship could overtake a supernatural demon. Didn't need much more but a few additional scenes could have solidified that these kids weren't just a bunch of bickering "losers" but a united front who would do anything for each other.

Also, I kept getting taken out of the immersion of the film by Finn Wolfhard. He did a great job in the movie, but I couldn't break away from thinking, "That's the kid from Stranger Things acting like someone else."

I've never seen it, but from what I've read it sounds an awful lot like an older horror movie I saw on TV years ago. Still can't figure out the name of it. Research ongoing.

it was the wrong kind of creepy.

also, every time the clown had a scare moment, they did some thing where he moves towards them and they blur him a bunch...it happened like 5 times. it was really stupid. my wife and I want to see it again thinking maybe we didn't give it a fair shake because the whole theater was laughing including us, but maybe it was just the crowd we watched it with. I was shocked people liked it as much as they did

I'll never watch a horror movie in the theater for this reason. Maybe if it's an odd time or late in the release when the theater is empty.

Way too many idiots to enjoy a horror movie in the theater.

agree, but "get out" is overhyped to such a large degree because of the message and I knew that before even watching it.

in the world of mainstream, mass appeal horror...it is as good as it gets, a rare gem. so it blew my expectations out of the water. Jordan peele as a director was astonishing. it is a really, really well directed movie. predictable, at a certain point, but that's not a bad thing. I don't like horror movies for the twists.

I also like how he just flat out got up and started killing them once free. that was different, but logical.

and it's a movie where the comedy elements just blended so well. so many movies have misplaced comedy and gag humor that takes me out of the movies. it's one of my biggest complaints about mainstream movies today (see the last jedi)

I was laughing too. it's kind of stupid, but it may have been an audience thing. right time, right night, struck a few people a certain way, they start laughing and then we see the stupidity in it and start laughing

I liked that the kids acted like kids. believable child characters have been making a comeback. the stranger things kid was a little over the top, but he didn't suck and that's how kids act.

the 80s nostalgia was annoying and the 80s setting was a poor choice and made no sense with the racism thing. the problem is I was alive in 1989 so I know that's stupid.

it wasn't like we were laughing like in a comedy movie, but the whole theater had some subdued chuckling and people shooting each other looks

it was organic, not trashy like people being obnoxious in a theater.
