I've been slightly obsessing over this film for about a year now. At first I was very disappointed with how it looked after seeing the trailer but I have to say that I'm more excited about this now. The website went live this week and the film does look pretty cool. I'm a huge fan of Carpenter's version and nothing will touch that but I genuinely think that this will be an entertaining chapter in the Thing universe. Bring on December 2nd

One of the dudes being interviewwed was wearing the Nostromo t-shirt from Last Exit. It would have been better if he'd been wearing the one from the Thing but you can't have everything, which brings me nicely to the movie.
Not a whole lot of Norwegian being spoken by the mysterious Norwegian scientists. Apart from that it looks ok, CGI monsters could work but I'll have a warm fuzzy place for Carpenter's take on the Thing from Another World.

THERE IS A 3RD MOVIE IN DEVELOPMENT! - 6/10/2011 9:28:02 AM  1 votes

Thats right folks, an insider close to the writing team behind the upcoming prequel to THE THING has told me that plans for a 3rd movie are at the conceptual stage. Apparently, the plan is to stick with the same formula but move the setting from the Artic to a Carribean Island. We can expect 'Da Ting' sometime around 2014.

...until the creature burst out of the block of ice. Looks like the same sh!t CGI that's been ruining films for the past decade!

CGI is too clean. You could put this on any particular saturday morning and the kids will enjoy. I know I won't.

I have been sold on this up until some guy being interviewed said it was a 'Fun, Scary film' (something along those lines but he definitely said FUN)

The first film was anything but fun! Brilliant but not fun...

Remember.....theyre actors. Not wordsmiths. And being horrified, frightened, startled and freaked out are all signs of a fun ride of a horror film. If you dont want a fun horror film (dont confuse satyrical tone of the 'Scream' series or slapstick of the 'Scary Movie' series with their use of the word 'fun') you might be inclined to see 'Human Centipede 2' which I absolutely promise you will not be a 'fun scary movie'. Trust me on this.

Was it worth waiting on for 30 years? Nah. Does it answer the question raised by Carpenter's classic? Yes. Spends lots of time making sure it covers its ass in the respect. The minute the creature appears, it never slows down. I had issues with the pacing and trying to please the masses with the creature onslaught. The CGI looks crappy but overall, its an effective mix of CGI and 3 diminisional models. It was good gory fun.
