    All they make are remakes! They are even remaking The Killer Elite.

    WTF? The imagination bank is empty I guess.

    The new "the Thing" is not a remake of the Kurt Russell version. It's actually a prequel dealing with the Norwegians that actually found the creature and were seen at the begining of the 1982 "The Thing" chasing a dog across the ice in a helicopter that crashes, killing them.

    I thought it was a remake as well until I did a little research and found otherwise.

    James Arness of Gunsmoke played the Thing in the original. I thought it was a pretty good movie, but I liked the Kurt Russell version better.

    I digress then. However, a different title would have been nice. You know, like The Thing: Arrival or something like that.
