Agreed! Even It: Chapter Two was mediocre compared to the first part. I LOVED the first part, but thought the second was over-long and just okay. It wasn't bad, but despite being scarier and more brutal than the first, it wasn't near as good.Is it just me, or has 2019 been one of the absolute worst years for film in the last decade?
Every week I check the theaters for something good to go see, and end up staying home 'cause there isn't even a half-assed sappy drama, let alone anything worthwhile.
I found Us disappointing, too. Could have been much better.
The Pet Semetery remake was okay I guess but felt totally unnecessary to me (what was wrong with the 80's version?)
I did enjoy Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, though. I usually hate PG-13 horror movies but thought it was kinda fun and creepy. I actually have a very SPECIFIC phobia about "spiders that lay eggs that hatch under the skin" (that scene in Urban Legends: Bloody Mary scarred me as a kid) but the same scene in this movie just looked really dumb and goofy to me. Might have cured said phobia, actually.
Looking forward to Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Any seen it yet? Thoughts?
Oh, have high hopes for Doctor Sleep, too. I like the timing as the book came out just long enough ago that I only remember the jist of it so won't be expecting everything before it happens in the movie.
