hmm... interesting

@kelgy,

I clicked on the spoiler, and that is an interesting touch, if that is the end. It's quite meta.

I'll wait for dvd I think.
I'm also amazed that people think the 1982 Thing was the original.

Horror Express was a remake of the Thing set aboard a Russian train.
It was closer to the short story than the 50s version, plus it had Telly Savalas whipping a Robert DeNiro lookalike.

I don't think it's a matter of the 1982 Thing being the original original, but it was one of the best tellings of that story so far, IMO. I think there's always room for remakes, but they should really try and do something unique. The new version was pretending to be a prequel, but like the issue with most prequels, the retelling was redundant, it was all covered in the other movie, and it was more of a remake.

I think a remake for me should be like a good cover song..bring something fresh and add your own style to it, don't just make it 90% like the other version, it just reminds you you're listening to a cover, and would rather hear the original.


BTW for fans of The Thing, if you haven't read this, it is basically fan fiction, but it's a great concept and well thought out, it's the story told from the perspective of The Thing(s).

so did anyone see this movie?

this and dark knight are two of the dumbest movies this summer.

and, yes the original total recall had about 10x the watchability. What arnie lacked in talent, he made up with sheer screen presence. that accent is an unending fountain of hilarity.

its really hard to believe that today, with all the VFX and money being thrown into productions, they cant find someone to write a non retarded script.

It has...
  • AMAZING production design.
  • Flawless VFX.
  • And it follows closely the original film.
If yo uare looking for a fun shoot em up, with a REALLY bland lead, go for it.

Yer a funny guy Sully, that's why I'm going to kill you last.

SEE YOU AT DA PAHTY, RICHTAH!

That and just doesn't seem right without the ultra-violence. There's just as much loony charm in that as well.

This is basically all that I want to see the new one for:

He is a bland lead. But at least what I find him to be more versatile in terms of movement. Arnold was such a slow boulder that it made the action scenes hilarious.

I really liked the movie though. I dont remember the last time I saw a movie with a futuristic city that wasnt just a few matte paintings. The scenery in this movie was sooo rich of detail. It almost felt like the recent Deus Ex. It is too bad that they didnt just rename the characters and do a different storyline based around the same premise.

Probably will take my pops to see it.

It is also one of those movies that I soo wish was 3d. The environments, and interfaces were sooo nice. I would have loved to see this movie in 3d.
