Sorry, but this has to be said! (About the opening homophobic attack scene)
Okay, I don't buy it that people are doubting that the scene where the thugs who beat up Adrian and his boyfriend get arrested will be in the supercut version. First of all, we live a society where if you include "bullies getting away with beating up someone" you're gonna be nailed to the cross for it, unlike in the past, before social media was a big deal. I mean the original Jumanji had had similar opening scene, but that came out in 1995, not 2019! Times have changed and we live in a world where people are exposed for their bad deeds. This isn't the 20th century, anymore. Also, this was quoted from some article about what scenes need to be included in the supercut version.
"In the novel, Adrian Mellon’s attackers are arrested for their homophobic attack on Adrian and his boyfriend. In the movie, they simply disappear. Muschietti has teased that we’ll see what happened to them afterwards, but it’s incredibly important that we see them punished for their actions. Without that, the film’s opening scene of brutality comes across as a bit exploitative.
I’d much rather have spent two minutes seeing the men behind the attack arrested than, say, including the scene where Mrs. Kersh drags Beverly under the water when they’re in the sewers. That’s more vital to the plot than another scare, and it’s a shame that it was ultimately cut. They need to include a moment of justice in the director’s cut, even if the book frames the justice as only temporary and a sign of the deep hatred in human hearts."
See, I wasn't bullshitting you when I said they must have the attackers punished or else that'll make the director come off as a insensitive douche who hates anything involving LGBT. I mean it's almost 2020, for fuck sakes! That scene is very important to the film, it happened in the novel, so it should happen in the supercut as well. The reason why it wasn't included in the original theatrical version was because of time constraints. The move was already almost over 3 hours long.
