Yesterday's thread about favorite space movies got me to thinking about whether or not John Carpenter's 1981 version of The Thing
starring Kurt Russell would qualify as a space movie. I suppose not since it was set in the Arctic, so I didn't put it on my list. But it is a fave of mine. And sure enough, serendipity stepped in and the movie was on cable last night. I watched it and remembered just why I like the movie so much.
If you're a fan of the sci-fi genre and haven't seen this movie, do so. If you've seen it before, but haven't seen it recently, refresh yourself with it. It's a worthy 90 minutes.
An absolute classic. One of my favourite films of all time, definitely in the top 10. Not sure what to think about the upcoming prequel. Hope they do the orginal justice!
I was wondering why there wasn't a film thread! :)
Oh heck yes, that movie is intense and great. I thought it was rather freaky a few years ago when I first saw it; just imagine what audiences in the 1980s thought!
Hmmm, I'm a self-described action-junkie. The Lethal Weapon series, Die Hard series, Bad Boys and Bad Boys 2
(in my top 3 greatest action films of all time), Speed, Terminator series, etc. I also enjoy some action-horror films, like Planet Terror and AvP - Requiem (which is strange because I have a hard time watching torture in movies, so I don't plan on seeing SAW or more realistic war films).
