I love the film The Thing and the original black and white version it is based on (The Thing From Another Planet), but now we have an upcoming Prequel in the works.
I am excited about this one.
You want a good movie recommendation? Watch INCENDIES, one of this year's oscar nominees for Best Foreign Language film. It's from (French) Canada.
Dude, this movie is a fucking kick in the head, holy shit!
This is a film thatís best experienced blind, with as little knowledge of the events within as possible. In the end, it may overreach a bit by striving for almost mythological consequences, but itís an easily forgivable sin, given the emotional heights that it reaches.
The finale of this film is literally stunning. Itís melodramatic at times, a bit messy, and the finale relies on a revelation thatís just shy of being entirely credible, but superb acting and an unflinching look at the proverbial sins of the father make this a film-going experience thatíll stick in your mind long after you exit the theater.
I have a rule, if I see one of these good, high quality movies (which I do on occasion) I HAVE to watch a movie at the other side of the quality spectrum.
For this I often use films from the production company called "The Asylum" who are the masterminds behind gems like "Transmorphers", "I am Omega" and "Snakes on a train" and "Mega shark VS Giant Octupus". I can have fun at their expense and it makes me enjoy the good movies even more.
Ha! I watched a film recently called Piranha from 1995. One of the opening scenes had a young girl stripping and going for a swim and I thought:
and sure enough, she did.Hmm, I bet she ends up in porn.
