I liked it. I liked it a lot! It is a slow burn of a movie but done well I thought. I think it's much better than the '84 version, especially on the special effects side which is to be expected. I think my main gripe would be the ending. There wasn't so much of a conclusion to anything so much as it just kinda randomly stopped. The Drinker has a pretty good take on it imo.
I guess part 2 isn't green lighted as of yet and dependant on the performance of this movie at the box office. I'm gonna be pretty disappointed if we don't get a conclusion. Fingers crossed.
Oh, and Josh makes a great Gurney Halleck!
