Who else is super excited for this movie!
I was dubious when the first one came out.
Partly because the original movie freaked me out so much as a kid and I knew this movie (no matter how good) would never be able to recreate that feeling of genuine fear that tiny Katie had felt watching the original. But also partly because I did know what to expect, was this going to be a carbon copy with updated effects (think Disney’s remake of Beauty and the Beast) or was it going to be truer to the book (think Disney’s remake of The Jungle Book (slightly)).
As it turned out I really enjoyed the first part, it was well-acted and well-paced, with enough of the original film to tease my nostalgia feels and enough new/book stuff to please the reader in me.
I have high hopes for the second part, it has got some good actors and I’m excited to see how they handle it.
Are you excited? Are you worried? Or are you pretty chill?
