Just finally got to watching the old and new The Thing.



After reading reviews most seemed to say the old one was way better, with a deeper plot, and less reliant on cgi. And to be honest after watching the new one first then the old one (the newer one is a prequal) the 2011 version was much better. The 1982 version relied just as heavily on the cgi which was terrible at the time. Not to mention the 2011 version did a wonderful job of connecting the two movies. you could watch them almost as one if not for the difference of about 30 years.

huh? what? do you even know what cgi means?

the old one only used puppetry, not computer graphics

are you confusing "cgi" with "special effects"?

I agree, the newer one was awesome. The older one was good as well, but it does seem dated, especially when I grew up with movies that all had better special effects than it.
Sometimes I think movie critics can't tell the difference between a good movie and a bad one. This only got a 49 on metacritic.

This one was great too. If you like horror movies, this is a must watch. It completely flips the genre on it's head. It's about some college students who go camping at the same time as Tucker and Dale, the friendly hillbilly protagonists of the movie, are going to their vacation house. To sum it up, the college students eventually think Tucker and Dale are psycho killers, and Tucker and Dale can't understand why these college kids are acting so strange and killing themselves all over their property. 8.5/10 Also, this one is on Netflix Instant for those of you who have that service.
I was a big fan of Attack the Block also. Wish Nick Frost had more facetime. I really liked the story and the soundtrack and plot.

Might check out Tucker & Dale even though horror isn't my mainstay.

I watched Fisher King last night. Though I didn't see it a second time, yet, I must say I must rank Brazil above it, despite being thoroughly entertained. Excellent film though. I didn't even know what it was about going into it, and loved Robin Williams in it. Jeff Bridges did fairly well. Trying to figure out if I liked him more as the Dude in Big Lebowski or Jack in Fisher King, and I'd probably have to go with the Dude also. But Fisher King was a great watch. Is there anything in particular I should look out for on the second watch?

It's a horror film in the same way as Shaun of the Dead.




This movie is fuuuuucking crazy. Such a morbid satire. Imagine breakfast club but with black humor and everyone is killing themselves and social commentary that doesn't quite make sense. Haven't seen anything quite like it.

I watched this recently for the first time in about 20 years. It doesn't quite resonate with me the way it did when I was 14 but it was still a pretty good flick.

Yeah, it just had good shock value for me. I was expecting something completely different when i began watching.

I forgot to say that it's a comedy.
