Holds up pretty well. A solid cast of young actors, an exceptional performance by Bill Skarsgård and some very nicely executed horror scenes. The film is still a little too long and the scares have lots a little of their impact the second time around, but it's still a very worthy adaptation of one of King's most notorious books.

A sequel from a director that got a little too confident over time. After all the praise for the first film, this is just more of the same, only everything is just slightly less impressive. Too long, not quite as scary any more and with an adult cast that isn't quite as involved. Not a bad film, just a little disappointing after the first one.

The Flash

It's a timely appearance for the DC hero. Now that Marvel is all-in on its multiverse, DC made good use of the Flash's abilities to travel back in time to create a similar setup. The film's a big mess though, a desperate attempt to recreate some of that Marvel money-making magic, made extra painful by the fact that Marvel is already on its return. How needy can you be?

The Flash is fast, even so, he usually gets the menial tasks while the rest of the Justice League is fighting off evil. When he discovers his speed allows him to travel back in time, he can't help himself and he tries to save his family from the malice that messed up their cozy lives. By doing that, he creates an alternate future (he may be fast, smart he is not).

The comedy falls flat, the CG is very disappointing, the plot is a messy patchwork of time travel ideas and superhero clichés and the film drags, which sucks for a superhero whose main power is speed. Oh, and the 80s/rock soundtrack is just baffling, who comes up with that? Even for a superhero flick, it's pretty damn bad.
