During the Summer my film consumption goes way down due to the fact that I just don't have much free time. This means that wasting my time on a garbage film like The Thing remake/prequel is all the more maddening. There isn't a single interesting or unique idea in the film, and the handling of the creature is horrid. All the characters are one note, with the only thing brought to the table being decent facial hair. Pretty much bored the entire runtime of the film, and now I am depressed as I think about the lack of creativity in films these days.
