“IT” Chapter 2


I finally got around to watching part II of the update/remake of Stephen King’s “IT”.

I can’t say that I am a huge fan of King’s writing, but I have read a few of his 160,000 books.  I generally think that is a a pretty good writer, but quite frankly, I think a lot of his endings suck.

I really liked the original 1990 TV mini-series.  I think that with the way King writes (1200 pages per book !!!) that TV mini series are the best way to do a King production.  It can be shown in 2-4 episodes and be done with production value that is good.  Quite frankly, in “IT II”, way too much was put into production and “special” effects.

Ok, I’m getting ahead of myself.  So I need to say this…………..

IT Chapter 2 SUCKS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes sucks.

I don’t recall in “IT Chapter One” if I was disappointed with too much.  It certainly wasn’t great but it was fine.

Chapter Two starts off with me literally wanting to turn the movie off.  Apparently, some social justice warrior involved with the movie wanted to gratuitously interject “homophobia bad bigots intolerance”.

Also, my wife noted right away that this movie was made as a vehicle just to say “FUCK” as often as they could.

At the end of the movie when the Losers were fighting Pennywise underground, all I could think was that the special effects guy was a huge fan of “Nightmare On Elm Street.”  Not sure if there was some kind of inside joke at the end when the movie marquee displayed “Nightmare On Elm Street”.

Speaking of inside jokes, was it another inside joke with King’s character saying that the ending of the writer’s book sucked?

The ending of this version sucked about as bad as the first version.  The “Eater of Worlds” is destroyed  by being belittled and insulted ???

Meh, I’ve seen it once and nevermore.  But I will watch the original again.


Nest Of Sex Offenders Must Relocate…..

Offenders Must Move

19 men who are registered sex offenders living at Wayside Cross Ministries have been given roughly a month to find a new place to live. The men must leave the group home by Jan. 15 because police have ruled it is too close to nearby McCarty Park.

Per Illinois law, sex offenders are prohibited from residing within 500 feet of a playground. Previously. McCarty Park was not classified as a playground, but police say Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office ruled that the park is, in fact, a playground.

The registered sex offenders received a similar eviction notice in July, but the city appeared to stop pursuing the eviction. The issue was then addressed again by the Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office. If the men do not relocate by Jan. 15, they may be subject to prosecution.

I will agree with the court that a public park should be considered a prohibited sex offender area.

I am all for the idea that most people should be given (a chance to earn) a second chance.  However, the unfortunately, the recidivism rate for criminals is very high and the rate for sex offenders is even higher.

Living quarters are in the upper left of the below photo and the park is the lower right.
