The Thing is not just great horror, it's great period no matter the genre. I dare say it's better than Alien. Too bad it isn't as popular.

I wish someone good would have done the prequel because i always thought it had potential as an idea. Of course though....one of the problem you have with a prequel is...we already know what is gonna happen and what the alien is (well...not really i guess but...) and what it can do...

I saw this movie in the early 90s on late night tv by accident and had never heard of it then and didn't know anything at all about the plot, didn't even get the title becuse i was just seconds too late to catch it. It was a remarkable experience to have. Just that opening with the chopper and the dog...sometimes i think that's how we should all experience some films. No context, no vague idea what its about or even the genre and perhaps even...no title.

a fun fact about giuseppe andrews that a lot of people may have forgotten is that he was in the videos for 1979 and Perfect.

I just hate the trying to make you jump moments which frankly i think is just kinda lame and too easy to resort to. Especially in a theater where you can't escape the screen and sound, you WILL fucking jump even if you knew it was coming and it's not even particularly a scary scene. I have this technique now where when i know it's coming, i look at a corner of the screen.. You can sorta still see what happens but without focusing on it so half the time i don't jump.

Yeah jump scares make horror movies not fun at all. It's just cheap.

I love everything horror but I don't like being subjected to basically a steady stream of those screamer e-mails people used to send

I haven't even tried to see any "jumpy" film in a theater for over a decade.

since Hannibal. that was so utterly embarrassing. dinner before the film, and then comes this scene where they open his head with a scalpel, and I had to leave, thought I'd puke in the cinema.

A good tense psychological horror film is hard to come by these days

I think horror novels are so much better at getting the right type of scare

that's the script that's different from the movie except for one scene, right?

why do you ask?

They are the funniest, craziest, most outrageous films I have ever seen in my entire life and they have to be judged unto themselves. You canít compare them to conventional films. They always make me laugh harder than I have ever laughed. They always make me gasp in either shock or disgust. They illicit so many raw emotions.

Giuseppe is a pure artist. He lives to create. He sees the creation when itís done as irrelevant to him, thatís whatís fascinating to me. And it is not an act. It is not pretence. This is exactly who he really is. He just loves the act of creating his art more than anything in the world. If five people see it, heís just has happy if 1,000 people see it. He just doesnít care other than the act of creating. I think thatís what makes him a pure artist.

it's not odd to me, but I think Adam Underdog Rifkin is a joke, so...

but it wasn't my intention to start an argument over the quality of something you apparently enjoy - and I simply don't.

i've been pretty open on the board that i really have no real taste for cinema. definitely a dilettante.

95% of movies i watch is used as a means to fall asleep.

I enjoy eating, I couldn't care less that I'm an haute cuisine dilettante.

(that's the worst comparison I managed, I'm proud of myself.)

i guess i'm just curious about where the kneejerk reaction came from - this is all new to me for the most part. i mean i have my fair share of hipster made vhs tapes but this seems to be very next next level compared to that.

why are you touchy about being called a HIPSTER? UH? Sounds like a typical hipster reaction.

I just wanted to use that word, since I never do.

the kneejerk reaction comes from having spent too much time with a bunch of art school students praising how "bold" and whatnot Guiseppe Andrews stuff is. the same people calling masterpieces "outdated" - Hitchcock for example.
I had these little fucks sitting in my living room, arguing why they never even watched a single Hitchcock film, but know all about "Guiseppe."

I remember one of those 20somethings said David Lynch is "just a director" but Guiseppe is "a true artist - and he does everything himself, muti-talent!" I hate these people.
