101: IT & IT Chapter Two - MFW They Bring Up the Ritual of Chud: D:

SPOILERS for everything IT (book, miniseries, movies, etc.)


In this episode:
  • TW: A Lot of Suicide Talk (Comes up briefly at 54:30, then we tangent a bit and get back to it from 1:10:00 - 1:17:20)
  • Man we take a while to get back into a Matter of Taste.
    • Also FUCK this episode is 101, we couldn’t have scripted that absence.
    • Also FUCK our 100th episode was Fire Walk With Me? Hella.
  • Hey, only a couple minutes in we announce that our discussion will involve SPOILERS for a story released 33 years ago, then again then again like 29 years ago, then again like 2 years ago, and then again like early September.
  • Ian brings up how important the visual consistency and coherence is to selling the emotional resonance of the story
  • Oh boy, let’s talk about the Ritual of Chud
  • I talk a lot about the way that Pennywise’s existence has bled into the town of Derry, but I want to emphasize that I don’t think hatred, racism and homophobia are supernatural forces, I understand that the existence of Pennywise in this small-not-small, prosperous-not-prosperous small town is a metaphor
  • Let’s talk about Pennywise and IT and how the different interpretations reflect the priorities of the flicks versus the movies.
  • They’re apparently considering a prequel which is fuckin wild.
  • I have an idea for the best version of these movies, but I don’t know how you cut it together with all they’ve done with Native American stereotypes and throwing Mike under the bus
  • So the good news is that we’ve been out so long that there’s a ton to cover. Stay tuned for updates!
  • Intro: "Full Moon Fever" - Ramshki Alley | STAY TUNED FOR UPDATES |
  • Outro: "This is My Design" - Ian Doherty | Bandcamp |
