I haven't seen the It mini series either, aside from clips on YouTube, but from the looks and sounds of it, it hasn't aged well, and it's not scary at all. Tim Curry is a riot, however. 

 

been quite a while since I've watched it, but often time made for tv stuff doesn't age all that well, so that wouldn't surprise me in the least.

The miniseries handles some of the adult stuff better in my opinion. Ben’s entire backstory on his weight loss is missing in this movie, and it’s  a hilarious story. 

 

Spoiler

Also, the fact that Audra never follows Bill to Derry bothered me.

I felt the same way. Kept waiting for Tom to kidnap Audra. Kinda bummed they didn’t include that plot line, but I get it. Movie was already long enough.

Of both movies?

 

No just this one I think. Might not be actually four hours because the press sometimes doesn't understand that a first cut being four hours isn't exactly what it sounds like (since as you know that is just basically all the footage lined up in the order before they start trimming scenes), but I have heard of a longer cut. Maybe for the Blu-ray. 

 

There's a few scenes in the theatrical cut that aren't really needed, and are just in it for another quick scare, like the "firefly" scene for example; adds nothing to advance the plot.

That's called "An Assembly Cut".

Exactly, but that doesn't stop sites putting out articles talking about how "Blockbuster X originally had three and a half hour runtime first cut!". Being in the industry we know that's not what that means.

Maybe with the two films out now there will be a big Collector's Edition with extended cuts of each movie.
