I watched this with my dad and loved it this is probably my favourite edit on the site and id watch it any day.
No complaints visual editing wise. There are a few audio bits that could be improved there more nitpicks plus its only a first edit and to be my favourite is a big achievement. i enjoyed this so much and i didnt feel i missed anything from what was cut this edit has made me grow as an editor to and i cant wait for your next edit congrats conrad
An excellent first edit that does a terrific job of modernising a good but rather dated TV Stephen King adaptation. It's not really possible to fix some of the wooden acting and sub-par special effects but pretty much everything else gets a fresh makeover, score, aspect ratio, titles and sound fx are all brought right up to date. The rescore utilizing the score from the 2017 version is particularly impressive and really gives this old tv movie a more modern feel. The editor also did a great job of tweaking Pennywise's kills to give him a modern agile sense of menace.
Narratively I didn't feel any sense of anything being missed from the half hour or so that was cut from the tv version, I'm not sure how much footage has been moved around to forge this narrative as it's quite a while since I've watched the TV version but if there was a considerable amount it certainly didn't disrupt or disjoint the narrative flow of this new modernised take on things. As I've already said an excellent edit that bodes very well for the editors forthcoming 'Stand' adaptation too.
Oh and whoever thought to call it 'The Cinematic Cut' is a genius! lol
