Kurt Russell is probably my favourite Action Hero. Why? Because the man doesn't need dialogue, he just constantly looks bad ass. In this he smokes cigars, prefers flame throwers to pistols and has beard that could melt the clothes off an inuit. Plus this revolves around a bunch of dudes hanging marooned in a research base in Antarctica waiting to die at the hands of a monster that makes Michael Bay look like Celine Dione. Doesn't make sense? Watch THE THING!
You know that hollow doomed feeling you get in your gut when you feel like slitting your wrists/hanging yourself/jumping in front of a milk tanker and jumping off the sky tower all at once? Do you like that feeling? If you don't, don't watch this movie. I saw this film late last year and still feel affected by the final scene, it's quite beautiful.
