The Thing ★★½

I thought this was a pretty decent prequel to the 1982 film of the same name. And it being a prequel is where it does a lot right. I’m glad they didn’t just remake the original film because the first The Thing is almost perfect. This one does pretty much the same story line but with a few twist; being backed by a fun story, although cgi, some pretty decent effects, and great performances from Joel Edgerton and Mary Elizabeth Winstead make this an all around pretty fun counterpart to John Carpenter’s classic.
