I don't know if I'll ever be able to get out from this bad internet hell, at least yesterday I could play TF2 for an hour before it starting.
Anyway, while I can and probably will talk about new weapons, updates etc. and since this is the digital era I decided to post about movies too, every time I see a fairly new movie, or maybe even a classic, I'll try to make a short review about it. Today: The Thing
When you see a remake of an old, good movie you go to see it expecting to have a similar experience than when you saw the original, and since many few ones can actually manage to be as good as the first, they are usually conidered bad.
However when I went to see this movie I was fully aware that it was a prequel and I tried to go see it with the lowest expectations possible, the result is a fairly enjoyable and watchable movie.
While I like the original a lot more, this one is certainly not a horrible movie, and it really makes you feel isolated in a little shed in the middle of snow. The reactions were somehow believable and it had some good characters.
However it's not a perfect movie and the flaws tend to stick out more than the goodies, and the first thing you notice are the special effects, let's just say, it's not going to be nominated for an oscar soon, the first time you see the thing, the special effects make you feel like you are watching an Eddie Murphy comedy, sometimes the effects weren't THAT bad, but my god you just have to have some standards and this movie really went below them, other than that I really didn't like the main character and found myself caring more about some of the ones that were killed off immediately.
Well that's really the only problems I had with the movie, but since the special effects stand out so much, it makes it look a lot worse, but in this times of horrible remakes after horrible reboots this one at least enjoyable and a must see if you are a fan of the first one.
I give it a 7.5 out of 10
