The film is based on horror writer Stephen King's novel of that name written 31 years ago. He has clicked on 54 novels, his first, Carrie, in 1973. In 1977 came The Shining, with The Stand a year later. In 1980 he released Firestarter, then Christine in 1983. Four became hit films, with The Stand a successful TV miniseries.
I read and saw all of them, but around this time, stopped reading his books for being same old, same old. This was a period when I returned to the University of Hawaii after spending three years in the U.S. Senate, and totally changed my reading habits. I thus don't remember reading It when it was published in 1986. Will Donald Trump be featured in King's next horror attempt?
- There is a kind of horror clown that kills for a short period, hibernates for 27 years, then returns.
- While the filming was in Canada, the story occurs in Maine, as does most of King's novels, for that is where he lives.
- Chapter 2 will occur around today (in time frame), for Chapter 1 took place in 1989. Big names are being suggested for the adult roles: Amy Adams / Jessica Chastain, Seth Rogan, John Bodega, Adam Driver and Tobey Maguire.
- The Losers Club (well defines their status in school, and their family life in general, has one female, who is the object of sexual abuse at home) takes a blood oath to return in 27 years if trouble returns. Why do you think there will be a sequel?
- The film is scary, brutal, terrifying, sometimes shocking...you can later add your personal descriptions.
- I gave it a B- because I just have come around to not particularly enjoying whatever Stephen King produces.
- He has made 20 cameos in films based on his writing...but I don't remember seeing him in It.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 63 to again break its all-time record, now at 22,331. Some say this has been an eight-year bull market, so Barack Obama started it all. Others give full credit to Donald Trump. In any case, my endowments love it.
However, most computer models then show Maria taking a Jose track:
More tomorrow about an "American" projection that predicts a closer encounter with Florida.
