The Thing, a review by Boomstick98


The Thing (1982)  :thumbup:

Plot: Scientists in the Antarctic are confronted by a shape-shifting alien that assumes the appearance of the people that it kills.

My O: This is still one of my favorite horror films. I remember this movie really scaring me when I was a kid. Watching it now I can see why. This movie has some nasty and creepy creature effects on the mutations. Nasty as in good. ;D I miss these kind of creatures. It seems everything now has to be CGI. This movie really has that claustrophobic nowhere to go feel to it. I'm sure most everyone has seen it, but if you haven't give it a watch. Now I just need to get the original 1951 film so I can finally see it. Yes, I admit I've never seen the original.

Dragnet, a review by Dragonfire




Just the facts: Dan Aykroyd is Tom Hanks' unlikely partner as the two set out to solve a pattern of unusual robberies and, along the way, encounter an oddball assortment of obstructions to justice.

My Thoughts

I've seen some of the episodes of the television show when they were on Nick at Nite.  Aykroyd is perfect in the part, making it very believable that his character is the nephew of the original Joe Friday.  He's very by the book, and a bit uptight about certain things.  The way he reacts to his new partner is entertaining.  The plot dealing with the crime spree by the PAGANS is kind of silly, but it is still very entertaining.  I could have done without seeing the giant snake at one point though.  Overall, this is a fun, entertaining movie, though it probably won't appeal to everyone.

 ;D

I did get a review posted on Epinions.

I really like the premise about the puppets being "fabricated Americans". And it was I show which I enjoyed every episode. I followed it when it was originally aired and was disappointed when it was cancelled. It has some great cast like Eugene Levy, Seth Green and Sarah Silverman.
The pilot episode is really great and sets up the show brilliantly.
