The Thing Review:

At first when I watched it, I thought that this remake was at least as good, if not better than the original, mainly thanks to the stunning modern special effects! From the scenario point of view, the two movies are exactly the same except for a few little things. Then I re-watched the original and everything was clear, I like much better the original look of the creature, probably because the computer special effects in the remake make it somehow a bit unreal. Also, the original movie has a tenser atmosphere and better acting. Don’t get mistaken, this still a bloody good movie, even if you’ve seen the original one. Still, it deserves a lower rating than the original, partly for the creature and the atmosphere, partly for the lack of innovation.
