Back in September, Kellogs2066 mentioned wondering if the Star Wars Prequels we got were the ones Lucas had intended back in the 1970s. We'll never know for sure, of course, since Lucas was apparently killed by Soviet agents in 1981, and replaced with a sock puppet. Not just any sock puppet, however, no, no. This wasn't a chipper, wholesome, family-friendly sock puppet of hilarity like we're used to. You know, like Skank:

MOVIE REVIEW: The Thing (2011)

The Thing was a 1982 science fiction/horror film directed by John Carpenter. It was based on a novella called "Who Goes There?" written by John W. Capmbell, jr. and originally published in 1938. The novella was first adapted as a motion picture in 1951 titled The Thing from Another World. Despite popular belief, John Carpenter's The Thing was NOT a remake of the 1951 film. More appropriately, it was an attempt to do a more accurate adaptation of the novella than the original movie had been. In that same vein, the new film is not a remake of the 1982 movie, nor is it another interpretation of the novella. Simply put, it is a prequel that couldn't have come up with a better name than just using the name of the original, The Thing.

Obviously, those of you who are aware of my stance on the show are going to be pretty nervous about me reviewing the new spinoff/prequel.

Let me calm your not-entirely-unfounded reservations before we begin:
