Director, Chris Columbus (The Adventures of Babysitting) directs this funny and quirky comedy written and produced by, John Hughes. This film stars, Macaulay Culkin as Kevin McCallister a little boy who gets left home alone while his parents go to Paris for Christmas vacation. This film is a Christmas classic and a comedy masterpiece directed by Columbus and written by Hughes. A comedy who will be loved by all family and kids everywhere.
This film comes from the director of the movie, Mama. Just that is already a bad start. This film is a remake/adaptation of the Stephen King novel of the same title. Now, let me get into the review. I saw this movie two times, the first time I just took it in, and the second time watched it as a movie. This movie in my opinion, is worth skipping. Now let's start with the cinematography. The cinematography for this film is astounding and quite beautiful. The shot composition, lighting, etc. looks great. The acting by the child actors is also quite great. Now, the part of the clown. Pennywise's design in my opinion is quite awful. He looks downright retarded, and not scary at all. They went for the 'modern' style, by making him look over the top and all demonic, instead of an unexplainable force of nature like the book and the original 1990's miniseries. The other thing is that the clown didn't have personality like the original, as he came off just straight up creepy, in your face, and over the top. The original, he was more sly and cunning, more manipulative. This one, is just going for the shock and the over the top gore, and jump scares instead of actual scares and suspense. This film didn't scare me at all, nor have any element of surprise or dread. This film's way of scaring you is a really noticeable CGI clown face ripping off a 6 year old's arm. It wasn't scary, nor accurate to the novel. Overall this film falls flat with a very weak climax and over the top imagery, and is not worth your time.
Mel Gibson is awesome
I remember watching this movie when I was about 9 or 10 years old. I was looking around on On Demand, and found this one movie that looked pretty interesting. I'm not a sucker for lifetime movies, but this one was rather good for some entertainment when there's nothing going on.
