Been wanting to watch a cut like this for sometime! I loved this and personally prefer this over the Original two on their own. I really enjoyed Chapter One when it released but was never a fan of Chapter Two. After watching them stitched together this way made me not only enjoy Chapter 2, but make me want to revisit it again. I will favor this cut over the original though

This fanedit definitely improves the narrative, especially the sequel’s terrible pacing. It makes it a better version than the 2 original films.

Also, as long as the viewer remembers the 2 original films, the non-chronological narrative here works fine. I’m not sure that it would work on a first viewing, though.

I didn’t like the many “Chapter” title cards. This is a film, and although it makes sense for some films to have “Acts” or “Parts” title cards (also not a huge fan of these), having more than 20 title cards is way too much, they’re just cluttering the screen space all the time. Also, many times the text appears in the middle of a scene (instead of at the beginning), that’s a big no-no.

Sidenote: this city (even though it’s small) never did even a bit of sewer maintenance for more than 100 years? If they had, hey would’ve found all that’s down there. I don’t believe the water would still flow if the sewers were to be left to crumble.

Yes, I do recommend this edit. Did I enjoy it? Not really. WTF? Let me explain.

I read the book for the first time in 1989 (how's that for a coincidence?) and loved it. I also enjoyed the tv-series (safe for the spider-bit) and adored the first movie adaption. The second was a bit of a mixed bag (didn't get the Eddie horror scenes). Joining them in a way as close to the book as possible sounded like a good idea.

Technically, this is one of the most accomplished fan-edits I've ever seen. Completely flawless, 100% pro. Putting in the chapter titles of the book is also a great idea. But despite all its technical wizardry, this edit doesn't work for me.

This is mostly due to my feeling that the timelines don't really gel, probably because there are hardly any scenes or shots that allow for clear and smooth transitions between present and past. That's not the editor's fault of course, the needed material simply isn't there. In the tv-series, it's always clear who is having which memory and why.
The chapter titles only worked for me in the beginning when they were against a black screen. Adding titles in the middle of scenes across the screen was a distraction that pulled me out of the movie.

Replacing Wallfish's music during the opening scenes with Für Elise - like King wrote it - was a highlight - although I missed a bit of foley, especially when Georgie is knocked down.

And although the climax was handled as it was in the book, it was too much for me. Reading a book is a very different experience from watching a movie, and I think the creators of the tv-series were aware of the fact that both climaxes might work better if one took place halfway and the other at the end. That way, the story gets sooner to a point were things come to a sort of resolve, instead of a seemingly endless follow-up of incidents that lead to a finale that is simply too much.

And I didn't watch it in one go. Two or sometimes three hours is the max for me, so I would have preferred this edit to come in two parts - like the tv series.

Reading the other reviews, I understand that my opinion differs widely from the general view. So don't let this review discourage you if you're considering watching this edit. Technically it's one of the best and boldest out there, but the choices made (and the lack of much needed material that wasn't available) simply don't work for me personally.

This is the best way to watch these two IT films. It's a very draining way to do so because of its lengthy runtime, but its great editing and narrative structure makes it all worth it.

10/10.

What a brilliant Cut this is!
Making room for a 4hour plus movie is not easy, but i wanted to Rewatch IT so bad, and when i came across this cut i did.
I liked both films in the original version, although some flaws, its still a great watch.

This cut aims to be more like the Book and i appreciate that a lot, as i recently wrote it for the first time.
The cuts ar very good and not visible, did i get all of them ? No. And i consider this a good thing, as my main goal with this and all is to have fun and enjoy the Movie. So me not getting all the cuts underlines the fact, that i was in the Movie, in Derry.
The changes i did recognize are all well done and fitting to the story. The Music changes fit as well.

And to make it very clear: this Rewatch made me like the movies more. This will be my go to cut from now on.
Well done!
