I just can't see past it being a total piece of garbage.
I understand that what we saw was an adaptation of the story, and that's fine, but the writers took some serious liberties, in doing so killing the story. The content of the novel was fantastic, a childhood companion piece on the exterior, but inside there is the dark and gritty evil of It, as well as the evil of the children's personal struggle with family and society, the adaptation didn't convey any of this! This is where the adaptation failed.
I'm all for taking some serious liberties when the adaptation is GOOD, ie: Jurassic Park, but the changes they made to the story in IT were terrible.
