I thought the prequel was amazing.

I... LOVE... THIS THREAD! Wee!

Re: In defence of The Thing (2011)

Huh, totally missed this thread.  I guess the average viewer didn't know this was a prequel, and thought it was another remake (something like "The Thing: The Beginning" or something could have helped).  Comparisons to JC's version were inevitable.   Female lead was nice.  CGI was ugh (well known that I don't like CGI). 

It was good, gave the backstory, but I feel that it could have been... more.  There certainly have been worse prequels/sequels.

I already gave my opinion of this flick somewheres else but I really think it was well done compared to the other shit remakes out here that lay flat. I know its a prequel thats what saved it!

Maybe they thought it sounded too mediocre. And also I was just passing by to revive these threads.
