    i think that Georgie should’ve let the boat in sewer and make a new one with his brother, also why did pennywise have a pause when they bringing stuff up about circus. where did the old lady go when Georgie got his arm bitten off and what did she do afterward.

    I agree that the intro is scary.

    The intro was definitely scary because Georgie didn’t know PEnnywise was in the sewer when he was going for his boat which added a surprise element when he saw the clown.

    I believe Georgie went after his boat because it was made by his brother and he has a great deal of respect and affection for his brother and that boat had emotional meaning to GEorgie. This lead to Georgie meeting PEnnywie and dissapearing.

    I believe that it would have been wiser that Georgie avoid talking to strangers like Pennywise. This way he could have avoided his death. However, I can understand how the clown was able to persuade him into taking the boat due to him overhearing Georgie’s complains about how Bill would kill him if he found out that he lost the boat. It’s upsetting to me that he had the impression that his brother would beat him up over losing a paper boat. I agree that this was the scariest scene of the movie, especially for first time watchers who hadn’t read the book. They wouldn’t have 100% known how Pennywise would kill the boy.

    This is the first time i’ve watched the trailer/ scene from the movie, and i think that Georgie shouldve been wiser and not talk to Pennywise because they are strangers and because Pennywise wanted to eat Georgie it was easy for him to convince Georgie that they weren’t strangers anymore now that they knew each others name, but then again it is also his brothers fault because even though he was sick he shouldve gone outside with Georgie just incase anything happened because Georgie ran about 3 blocks away from his house meaning his brother was unaware of what he was doing.

    The movie was actually funny to me

    Georgie could’ve avoided talking to penny wise but then he had Georgie’s paper boat which is the one his brother made for him. that shows some real love that georgie has for his brother. It was the least expected for georgie to get killed like that but what got him into this mess was pennywise.

    So much wrong with this scene…
    Where is the old lady after his arm got bitten off
    Why did they make it look so fake
    Why did Georgie run after the boat, he could’ve just made another one
    So muchhh
