Very disappointing sequel. The first film was equal parts scary and fun. This one just drags on for far too long. A lot of scenes could have been easily cut shorter without sacrificing any of the story, and some of the film's humor felt forced and too campy in contrast to the humor from the first film. The way in which the Losers Club defeats Pennywise at the end is also ridiculous and feels like a cop-out, especially when you consider the two movies combined spent around 5 hours building up to it.

Watched it for the first time 2 nights ago. 4 stars because the domestic violence scene with Beverly and her husband was unrealistic. It seemed as if it was the first time he abused her, but she was barely phased by it. Also, I didn't like the way It was destroyed - cheesy and anticlimactic.
The casting for the main characters as adults was ALMOST perfect, as far as facial features are concerned (especially Eddie, wow!). What would have made it perfect? Bryce Dallas Howard as Beverly.

Factual error: There's a flashback to 1989 in an arcade and we see Mortal Kombat and Mortal Kombat II there. The original wasn't released until 1992, and the sequel in 1993.

Suggested correction: Subtract 27 from 2019 and you get 1992. They were 12-13 in 92 so it is plausible that those games could have been in the arcade while they were still kids.

It's set in 1989, not 1992.

The "present day" scenes in this film actually take place in 2016, 27 years after the first film is set which would be 1989. The mistake is valid.

Some of the flashbacks seem to be set after the first movie.

That flashback definitely was not supposed to be after the first movie, it featured Henry Bowers.

And Pennywise would have been asleep in 1992~1993 so that whole scene after the arcade makes no sense.

Trivia: Several of the child-actors who portray the "Losers Club" had to be digitally "de-aged" as they had grown up tremendously in the two years between films.

Question: Why does Stanley kill himself? I understand in the film it is because he considered himself too weak and wanted to give his friends the best chance. However, why didn't he just stay where he was was and not return? Pennywise can't reach that far so could not influence him. Stanley could have come up with any plan, even faking his death.

Answer: It's a bit involved, but the fact is that he was never that stable with the idea to begin with. He had forgotten all the horrors of his childhood (either due to the influence of Maturin the turtle [from the book] or Pennywise it makes little difference) and when it all started to come back to him, he panicked. And frankly, he had no way of knowing whether Pennywise could get him where he was or not. He didn't know enough to know one way or the other. But he knew that where Pennywise was concerned it would never be over simply. Pennywise would have tormented and tortured them like he did when they were kids, and when faced with that prospect he decided that ending it now, especially in his panicked state, was preferable to the idea of torture.
