  1. LOL, i love your review of this. but i did find it quite suspenseful. different from the original, but i thought it respected it nonetheless

    Sounds like a rental. To be honest I’m not that big of a fan of the 82 movie it’s good but for me it’s never been great, I prefer the 50′s version.

      Never seen the fifties version, but from what I’ve read, it’s not as faithful an adaptation as the eighties version.

        The book wasn’t very good and its somewhat debatable which is a more “faithful” adaptation since both versions took a lot of liberties in adapting it.

    Just the thought of this movie existing makes me furious. I love Carpenter’s ‘The Thing’ so much it’s impossible for me to be detached when commenting. I’m not even moved to rent it. Far as I’m concerned – “It’s gone, MacReady…”

    Good stuff, Bart.

      Totally agree with you Wolf. Carpenter’s The Thing is one of my favorites and this just seems like an excuse to showcase how good ‘CGI’ is these days. Nothing holds the same weight that Bottin’s creatures did.
