"IT"s Disappointing

Do you hate clowns? This flick will add to your misery of clowns although not in a scary, delusional way. Stephen King's "IT" moves from the book and the 1990 TV mini series to the big screen. This flick has already made over $150 million dollars on a budget of $38 million, kudo's to the marketing. Clowns are bad enough, but a demon clown terrorizing a small town in Maine, priceless right? I haven't read the book nor have I seen the mini series starring Richard Thomas of The Waltons Fame, the late John Ritter, Tim Reid, and Annette O'Toole. Following the book the premise is the same in this newest flick directed by Andy Muschietti, is described as "Chapter One" meaning more to come later in 2018. RT and most critics love this flick, I, not one of them. I will tell you why later.

 The plot is set in 1988 where a young boy named Georgie goes missing after losing his makeshift paper boat to a storm drain. Lurking in the drain is a freaky clown named Pennywise who convinces the young lad to give up his right arm in exchange for the boat only to be pulled into the drain by Pennywise, played by Bill Skarsgård, a Swedish model by choice.

Pennywise has been creating havoc on Derry Town every 27 years, killing children and such, and shows itself to IT's victims in the appearance of what they fear. Pennywise then goes into hibernation. Georgie's brother Bill, played by Jaeden Wesley Lieberher who has a stuttering problem and his gang of friends, go into the gutter of Derry looking for Georgie and Pennywise. Of course, "The Losers Club", locate Pennywise and their fears and, well, you know the rest is history.


"IT" isn't scary, not even remotely. Excluding the excellent acting by the "Losers Club", I found myself laughing at Pennywise pretty much the entire time his big, fat head hit the screen. All I could think of is, "WOW, this clown looks like the Red Queen from Alice in Wonderland!" His movement as he attacks IT's victims is hilarious. Pennywise's scoots around like the groundhog in "Caddyshack". There is nothing about "IT" that resembles anything close to being a horror flick! I give this flick two & half stars for two reasons: The story is emotional between the club and the acting is well done. Wait for "IT" on Red Box.

TOP GUN II-The Later Years Coming Soon!

It's been 30 years and finally, finally word comes that all movie fans have been waiting for! "Top Gun II, The Later Years" will be a reality according to TC himself. Pick A Flick has obtained the plot for this wonderful sequel set to be released in time for Summer of 2018! If you don't want to know the plot, please look away or stop reading. The scene is set in the later years, on Venice Beach, California and we find the Top Gun pilots Maverick, played by TC, Iceman, Cougar and Wolfman close to the volleyball court. No the former pilots/VB players aren't playing volleyball, they are entangled in game of shuffleboard. Having lost in checkers, TC is trying to redeem himself and beat Iceman but is too tired to continue.

A few minutes later, a young man walks up and introduces himself as Goose Jr., son of Lt. Nick Goose Sr. who died in the first flick. Goose Jr. has a problem and only TC can fix it or so it seems. You see Goose Jr. is trying to become a pilot, but he sucks at volleyball and flying. Seeking Maverick's help, he begs for him to teach him how to hit a volleyball and to fly a jet! Iceman, who is nodding off in a lounge chair, wakes up and reminds Maverick he is the only Top Gun and that he, TC, is his wing man.

Maverick gets pissed, grabs his walker, and tries to hit Iceman. Maverick falls down on the shuffleboard court, then falls asleep. A pouting Goose Jr. walks away, but Iceman grumbles that only one person can help him. No, its not Viper...its not Jester...they are both pushing up daisies. It's Charlie!!! Thats right, Kelly McGillis is back as "Charlie" and we mean she is "Charlie". No longer Charlotte Blackwood, Charlie is transgender! We cant wait for the sequel and will post more information about it as we get it.............................
