    I have seen this thing countless times and I still don't really know why. It's the most pop action film if there ever was one. All the action scenes feel more like a stunt show on some backlot. Definitely the lesser of Cage's 90's action movie run. But despite all that I never peak at my watch during it. Make of that what you will.

    Gore, paranoia, some impressive fx-work and an atmosphere for the ages make this Carpenters best film. It is simply astounding to (re)watch. It does not get any better than this group of men fighting against something so horrific at a place that feels like the end of the world. Cundey's lighting is brilliant as well and the blue and orange/red lights paint the white snow in images you won't soon forget.

    Clark: "I dunno what the hell's in there, but it's weird and pissed off, whatever it is."

    Scorsese explains why he has an additional TV in his editing room that's constantly on:

    "I just like to look at the pretty pictures. Basically it comes down to having a flow of images I'd like to see. And I guess, also havin grown up with televison, if it isn't on, you feel lonely."

    Me too, Marty...me too.
