“Jon Carter,” “Van Helsing,” “Scorpion King,” “Jupiter Ascending,” provide great company for “It: Chapter 2;” another disappointing, big-budget studio release.

Full disclosure, I wasn’t a fan of the 2017 remake, but this bloated sequel is far worse. The most obvious problem is the entirely unnecessary three-hour running time.
