    From what I can say, this is basically my favorite Sci-fi Horror movie... well the John Carpenter version that is, coming out this friday is the prequel to that version, I just hope they don't ruin it aleast, trailers look nice though.

    I'm going to see it Friday or Saturday. I'm hoping it's as good as the original, and I like how it looks like this one has a dog scene too, lol. We know everyone's going to die, but it should be fun to watch. Especially as the paranoia sets in.

    I hope it's not gonna be as bad as amityville horror. The remake butchered the original.

    That was the best part in the entire movie, everyone went bonkers just to find the Thing, though I did think Childs was actually infected at the end.

    It might help that it's not a straight remake, more like a telling of the story of the people who discovered The Thing. I agree that I hope it's not as bad as Amityville Horror. But I'm hoping that the fact that they can tell their own story while just following the guidelines of The Thing will make it good in its own way.

    I know, that's what I mean. :D And yeah, I'm sure one or both of them were infected. But the point was, they'd rather die then let it reach others. The ending wasn't concrete, but I think that's what happened. One killed the other, and then the Thing was stuck there, alone.

    That's what I thought the first time I saw the film since you had to pay close attention to figure out who was infected.

    From what I heard for this prequel, the director strictly told them they were not gonna use CGI and do the Thing just like in Carpenter's version, if they do, that'd be fucking boss cause most horror movies suck due to CGI graphics and I kinda hate it for that reason.

    Really?? That would be awesome. I hate CGI graphics, especially when it looks so fakey (Beowulf, anyone?). It's one of the reasons I liked The Thing, even though I only saw it recently on Netflix. Now I'm really looking forward to this movie. :awesomesmall:

    The realism was done pretty well, it has a pretty original story to it.

    Two things (pun intended):

    1º How is that a prequel? Is the new fancy way of saying remake?
    Cause that scrip looks pretty the same, only without Russell...and more copters and a female protagonist student who shots like Billy the Kid, or so say the early reviews. Not cool.

    2º For what I can see in IMDB etc, the movie has plenty of CGI, the lying fuckers

    Still I'll check it, but not paying, I'm afraid

    1. In the trailer, they say that it is something new they've discovered, as in, no one has been there before to investigate it. In the original, isn't the team put together to find out what happened to the original team? It's been a while, but I know there was a team there originally, then they disappeared. The new guys (Kurt Russell & gang) go and investigate, find they're all dead, and bring the dog they find back with them. The dog is infected, kills the other dogs, and infects the humans.

    Sure, the trailer for the new one looks similar, but I believe it will be about the team that arrived first, discovered the Thing (however they do that, dunno), and it runs rampant among them, killing them all save for one dog, who will be discovered by Kurt Russell and gang. That's the way it looks to me, anyway.

    2. :( I hope not. I was excited to hear that they may be making it the way the first one was made.

    Ok, your are right.

    In The Thing (1982) is the Norwegians who discover the alien, and then the Americans who investigate when they get mad

    I was wrongfully mixing that movie with the original one which I think is the one where they discover the flying saucer, and the one with the scene of the ice slab containing the critter, etc...which was the one which made a bell ring in my mind

    The Thing 2011 then would me more of a remake of the 1951 movie (which is nice too, btw) than the 1982 one

    That's why I said it was the prequel, technically.

    Hmm, I haven't seen the 1951 movie. Guess I'm gonna have to see if I can find it somewhere.

    Carpenter has stated, though I don't remember where, that he actually has no fucking idea which one is infected. He never decided.
    My grandfather loves that movie. First one I ever saw. You should also read the novel that the movies were based on.

    I'm fairly sure it's not MacReady, though. His actions would make no sense. For instance, why would he blow up Blair, or not take the chance to kill everyone while they were tied down during the blood test.

    That's what I was watching closely, Childs could've been infected due to trying to follow Blair when he saw him at that moment.

    If that's true they're both infected now. Remember the bottle of alcohol they shared?

    Could be possible but in the game it was revealed MacReady was alive and uninfected.

    Remember when that guy tells Mac to make his own food, as a single cell could infect you?

    That was not canon and clearly just a cop-out to please idiotic fans of the movie. Also, how did he survive in the freezing cold when Childs died? The only way for him to of survived was for him to be infected.

    It looks sort of like Alien one with the flame thrower and vaguely attractive chick and niggas incubatin inside niggas. I haven't seen the first thing, though I imagine that I'll shit everywhere and die from fright and be paranoid all night. It looks pretty good though.
