    "For being one of the most top rated horror movies this is really meh"

    (Realises I've been watching the wrong version halfway through)

    Oh well...

    Remakes of John Carpenter movies have been a mixed bag in recent years. Rob Zombie's completely pointless (though fairly entertaining) Halloween remake aside the rest have been atrocious (his Halloween sequel and the shitty Assault on Precinct 13 remake for example). For that reason alone I was a little apprehensive about the new The Thing film, but when I heard it was more of a prequel I decided to give it a shot.

    The reality is that it's actually kind…

    Cosas mortales.

    Hay que tener mucho cuidado al hacer la precuela de una de las mejores películas de terror de todos los tiempos, como es The Thing, un clásico de 1982 del maestro John Carpenter.

    En este caso funciona, ya que el feeling original de la película esta ahí, tensión, suspenso, horror y mucho gore, además de tener detalles que nos explican mucho lo que vemos en la secuela de 1982, logrando una buena conexión entre las dos partes al…

    This remake masquerading as a prequel is a real missed opportunity. It could have taken the Alien route and at least tried to do something different and interesting. Instead it pointlessly tries to match its "sequel" beat for beat.

    It does have it's moments, doing a pretty decent job with the effects despite not having the "How the hell did they do that?" factor of the Carpenter classic. It also occasionally manages to capture some of its paranoia.

    One of…

    A preferencia por efeitos práticos, abusando do uso de próteses e maquiagem grotescas, é acertada. Uma pena que com isso as inserções de computação gráfica se tornem ainda mais falsas, pelo contraste.

    Se é pra ver a Ramona Flowers presa em um lugar fechado sem saber em quem confiar, é melhor assistir Rua Cloverfield, 10. E sem entrar em spoilers, alguns acontecimentos no terceiro ato se tornam perturbadoramente parecidos.

    I enjoyed it. It had some flaws. The ending was a really big one. But still enjoyable.

    Esta cinta me causo muchos sentimientos encontrados, el mítico film de John Carpenter siempre está en lo más alto de las criticas mundiales especializadas, una de las grandes peculiaridades de la película es que es como un iceberg a pesar de los años solido como un monstruo; no pierde esa calidad y gana fans a lo largo de las décadas.

    Por lo tanto tratar de homenajear este film es una tarea asesina lo que aplaudo del productor y dueño de…

    Not as bad as I expected, but entirely forgettable. I would have preferred a glorious disaster to a limp effort.

    ★★ Rewatched by Kendomustdie 11 Jul, 2016

    Rewatched after listening to the latest School Of Movies podcast. It's still an enjoyable effects-driven monster movie, but ultimately hollow and pointless. Doesn't compliment Carpenter's film in any way.
