"It: Chapter 2" was quite literally the only movie that earned a reasonable profit this weekend with an incredible $91.1M. Don't get used to these kinds of weekends this season! The general consensus seems to be that, like the first, it's a solid coming-of-age story that happens to have a bit of horror in it. As long as we don't have ridiculoudly comical Pennywise dancing, then I'm fine either way.

Maybe five or six years ago I went through kind of a douche-baggy thing where I wanted to read through "contemporary classics", and Donna Tartt (the writer of "The Goldfinch") was on that list. Now, I haven't read "The Goldfinch", because I own "The Secret History". Since we are all being honest with each other, "The Secret History" is sitting on my bookshelf and I haven't read it yet. This movie looks nice and pretentious. I expect a short theatre run and then right onto Amazon Prime. $12M.
