Movie Review: "The Thing" (2011)

So they remade one of the movies from my childhood in the Eighties, “The Thing”. Apparently it was more of a cult classic than a box-office success back then, but what mattered to me is that it was a scary movie – and I was too chicken to watch it! Fast-forward 20-odd years, and there I am, braver and ready to face my fears.

My over-all rating of the movie is that it it is “cinema-worthy”; you don't have to wait to rent/stream/HBO it. It's an enjoyable story, with believable characters, and nice cinematography. I particularly loved the change in the characters once the (understandable) paranoia over who was an alien started to kick in!

QBF Rating: 3.5/5.0

PS: The original poster and trailer added below as a bonus!


  1. Did you watch it? I did! It was something, they did not hold back on the graphics at all!

The Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences.
When love and hate are both absent everything becomes clear and undisguised.
Make the smallest distinction however and heaven and earth are set infinitely apart.
