"The Thing"

Have you ever been to a movie and thought, "Okay, it's about to get better" and it doesn't? You just expect the climax to be shocking and to put you on the edge of your seat. Well, watch the movie “The Thing”, there is nothing exciting or thrilling about it at all.
October 14 the movie "The Thing" was released. It had an overall grade of a C from the People's Critics: Film Review. After watching the movie and reading comments, there are people who enjoyed it and people who think they wasted money to make it and to go and watch it. Personally, I think it is a waste of money and cheaply put together. I was very disappointed after watching this movie as were the people I was with. Movies should keep you guessing and this movie what was about to happen was too obvious.
For those of you who haven't watched it or heard of it, I'll sum up. In the beginning of the movie an alien spacecraft and specimen were found under ice. Kate (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), a paleontologist and a group of researchers (Joel Edgerton as Sam, Ulrich Thomsen as Dr. Sander Halvorson, and Eric Christian Olswen as Adam Goodman), are called to study the specimen found. After the specimen is brought up from the cold, it becomes alive and starts attacking and getting inside people to makes everyone second guess everyone and everything. After watching this movie, I discovered it is a prequel to the classic 1982 movie “The Thing” by John Carpenter.
After researching the older movie and watching clips of it, there are a lot of good elements in both movies. In the 1982 version, the horror is more intense and there’s an uneasy feeling as you’re watching it, which is the feeling you want when you watch a horror film. The 2011 version is more digitally designed with the new technology we have today, but the focus was so much on that, that the horror fell flat. So either movie you watch there are things you are going to like and dislike.

  3. All are required to attend strike. In the event the show is selling extremely well, Sunday 2/25 will be used to add a matinee and extend the run. Currently, there’s only a small chance we will extend. Because of weather, sales may be down - and Thursday has not sold well at all. A decision will be made by Friday morning 2/23 (if not before).
