The Thing (2011)

I have mixed emotions. It’s not as bad as I was lead to believe. This was a well done movie with tension throughout. But that’s probably because of the premise behind the story “Who Goes There?”. It’s hard to beat a classic and despite calling this a prequel, this has all the markings of a remake. There are simply too many scenes that mimic Carpenters 1982 film. I will tend to agree with a lot of reviews, the CGI was overused and practical effects would have added to tension. Some scenes I should have been frightened, I was instead looking closely at how they did the graphics. I would say one of the biggest problems is indifference to the characters. We never get to know them like the ’82 version. I would suggest that key mistake in making this version just mediocre at best. I still recommend it. It wasn’t great, but who can deny comparisons against one of the best movies evah
