I wasn't a huge fan of John Carpenter's original production of 'The Thing' but i did appreciate the undeniable originality of the picture. Few stories are this out-of-the-box but this remake did very few new things. Sure, they utilized state-of-the-art graphics and computer generated effects but guys, in 1982 we saw Carpenter's version of 'The Thing'. Show us your version of it! Do you not think something could have been done better? That some new scenes could be added? That some scenes we've known for 30 years could have been omitted? Did you not have your own take? Evidently not. Pretty people in a pretty setting with a good story, poorly executed. Next time, give us something we haven't known for three decades.
