I do feel like a fish out of water out here. Also, everyone tells me I have an accent, like I'm from the Bronx or something, LOL. I think I sound just like them.

I'm sure you don't.


You should come out here! The state is in dire need of physicians, probably because nobody wants to come to such a cold and desolate state. It's not so bad, though.

I can imagine how desolate it is up there, Kathleen.  No, I'll stay put here.

Do you ever want to move back to civilization?

...whereas the book gave me nightmares.

That's the beauty of reading books.  Imagination comes into play.  The story is always more vivid than the movie or TV treatment.

No, Wyoming.  Wait...near Montana, right?

Har har, Barry.  ;) And very good; Montana is right next door!

Would you say that the clown was more obnoxious than scary?

Hmmmm...I wouldn't say obnoxious; I'd probably choose the word silly, or maybe just dull. He was just kind of boring, like "Oh, look; there's Pennywise again," whereas the book gave me nightmares.

That's not to say I wouldn't run if I saw him in a dark alley, LOL, but Tim Curry's Pennywise in the TV version was scarier.

Have you seen the movie, Kelley? If so, I'd be curious to hear your opinion.

You're right, the clown wasn't scary, and the jump scares were predictable and not that frightening.

Boy am I slow. I watched this little dude about ten times before I thought, “Oh yeah! Spit take.”

Against my better judgement, I was persuaded to watch the new cinema release of "IT". In my opinion they missed the "SH" off the beginning of the film's title. What a load of garbage. That clown - supposed to be so frightening - reminded me of The Grinch in white makeup. The jumpy bits you could pre-empt a mile off and the scariest bit of the whole experience for me was the 2017 price of popcorn on the way in.

I was so hoping to disagree with you, Mr. Mustard, because I really wanted to like this movie, but I was actually bored. The last third reminded me of the last part of Titanic, with Jack and Rose running around the lower corridors of the ship. <yawn>

You're right, the clown wasn't scary, and the jump scares were predictable and not that frightening.

It's a cliché, but the book (and even the TV version from 1990) were definitely better.
