That's cool.  If it is a clown doing some crazy thunderous dance, I'm the fark out of there.

Well, that is really cool. Really enjoyed the kid's performance in IT.

Isn't Scott Wampler (the author of the article/post/blog) a target of derision here on Fark? What's that story?

I thought the same thing. Seeing his name, I realized it had been a while since I'd seen seen his name. Years ago, it seemed we couldn't go a week without a post of his being derided. He was with a different blog then that I can't remember the name of.

The Examiner. He would sometimes have multiple stories (some as short as a couple paragraphs) greened each day. One Farker got a long timeout for blowing his picture up and putting the words, "I'm a huge f****t. Please f*ck my face" on it.

There was a Wampler Fark meme a while back when he dominated the green lights for a while with really shiatty links. I forgot what it was exactly. Something like all the comments were "WAMPLER!" or something. That was a weird month or two.

In most theaters a kid can see an R rated movie when accompanied by an adult. Sine he's actually IN the movie itself... I'm pretty sure his parents aren't going to bother keeping him away from that particular film. It isn't like he doesn't know its make believe, and doesn't know what happens. I mean, the little dude had to sit through makeup/wardrobe sessions and read the lines himself. He knows what happens.

That's odd. I recall there being this whole thing about how the girl that played Hit Girl couldn't see Kick Ass because of her age. Maybe that was a parental decision

Armond doesn't like it. Says it's cynical fake Americana warmed over with too-well-trodden horror tropes that just play to stuff we already expect. Can't say I disagree all that much, tho I do enjoy formulaic warmed over Americana tropes as much as the next person once in a while.


"In the 2000 movie State and Main, the always edgy-yet-conservative dramatist-polemicist has a character describe her small town's habits: "Everyone makes their own fun. If they don't, it's not fun; it's entertainment."

I embraced that memorable wisecrack while enduring the deliberately calculated torture of It, in which the legend of a child-killing in a New England small town foreshadows the creepy, murderous, zombie fascination that now characterizes Millennial entertainment. Stephen King potboilers, usually set in New England, as is State and Main, are manufactured to convey a kind of American Gothic, but they don't define our cultural space or history so much as exploit a credulous, juvenile weakness for secular superstition and self-punishment.

It only seems like "fun" if you fall for King's obvious, contemptuous treatment of American innocence. Director Andy Muschietti gears up what is basically a campfire tale (It was previously filmed as a 1990 TV miniseries), using all the King devices that many people in our broken, beyond-ersatz culture have come to mistake as authentic."
 
2017-09-12 10:47:54 PM  
As cool as this was, I was much more interested in the news that the director is bringing him along for the upcoming adaptation of Locke & Key, which somehow flew completely under my radar. Given the episodic nature of the work, I think the Hulu miniseries could be a damn good idea. Linky: http://birthmoviesdeath.com/2017/08/29/andy-muschietti-brings-his-geo​r​gie-along-for-locke-and-key

He's obviously not as prolific, but I think Joe Hill is starting to give his dad a real run for his money as far as quality and content goes (Heart Shaped Box creeped me the FARK out, and N0S4A2 and the Fireman were both great reads for the genre). For those who don't know, Joe Hill is the pseudonym of Joe King, son of Stephen.

SFSailor: Just saw it today. I can't reconcile that I really liked it... but didn't find it scary at all.  Huh.

It greatly exceeded my expectations. Granted, I went in with low expectations... but if I had gone in with high expectations, my expectations would still have been met or exceeded. It wasn't scary, but it was creepy, which is fine. As a general rule I try to not be afraid of imaginary things. Henry was scary, because he was believable as real-world nightmare.

I have read nearly all of Stephen King's work (and everything else his son has written as well) and this is the only book I've ever had to put down because of how creepy it is, and I have still not finished it. I think I'll have to take it to work and read it on my breaks in the well lit room with several other people around.

Now I'm trying to think of the blog that kept showing up on the sports tab for like a month. It was basically that tab's version of Wampler and I can't remember anymore. I feel like each tab other than main has had a situation like that where just a solid month gets tons of greens from a random new source that are poorly done, everyone goes overboard mocking it, and then that site is gone.

The kid likely went to the cast and crew screening before it opened. He knows everybody made it out okay. Plus, being in it, he got to see how the sausage was made. It's probably not easy for him to get too scared of Skaarsgard after watching him chain smoking and setting a fantasy football lineup while they were waiting an hour to light the scene.

I think I'll have to take it to work and read it on my breaks in the well lit room with several other people around.


Agreed - I've been revisiting a lot of Stephen King's books and some that I just never got around to reading (especially his short stories) and he has some creepy/disturbing things, but as far as I'm concerned his son is rapidly outclassing him.

Just got back from seeing IT, and seem to agree with most here. Didn't find it scary, but it was a very well done take on the story and definitely enjoyed. Only think I didn't really care for was the odd steady cam effect they did on pennywise in parts, just kind of snapped me out of the movie for a moment, but other than that, enjoyed it all the way through. Especially enjoyed the painting effect, honestly thought it was a man in black reference.

Normally I like their reviews, but this one annoyed me. They kept calling this movie low brow entertainment that will keep the 'popcorn crowd' happy. As if enjoying this movie makes you some sort of uncultured idiot. Get over yourselves, assholes, you're not better than anyone.
