The Thing 2011 – Preview to a Review

I’ve noticed a lot of trafic hitting the site for people looking for a review of this film, I haven’t seen it, because it doesn’t come out in Germany until the 17th of November – it opened a month ago in the U.S. Because I’m so excited for this film I had considered watching a bootleg copy, but the one being circulated on the net is awful. Instead I went with a film of a similar genre, Pandorum, and was pleased. But that doesn’t help anyone wanting to know if this film is any good, and to give you an idea, audiences seem to like it more than critics. Rotten Tomatoes users gave it 59% fresh rating – which is actually rotten – and IMDB is currently showing a 6.7 rating. It seems it doesn’t do a whole lot entirely different than the previous films, with a lack of genuine scares. We’ll have to wait and see.

    I can’t wait to see this thing either, regardless of what anyone says, you need to see it for yourself. It doesn’t seem to be god-awful anyways, which would have been disappointing. I loved Pandorum too, although the sped up kill scenes were a bit annoying…
