Comments– The more I see these older horror movies, the more I dislike all the CGI bullshit we have today.  The Thing is a great movie, and may be one of my favorites in this genre.  It is suspenseful, bad ass, and made me a jump a few times along the way.  Kurt Russell is fantastic, and the rest of the cast is great too.  I have been wanting to see this movie for years, but never have until tonight- the wait was worth it.  It looked great on Blu-Ray.  And the special effects were awesome!  I wish we would use more puppets today like they did in Jaws and The Thing, etc. because they just look so much cooler in my opinion.  I want to keep this one short because I know pretty much everyone has seen this movie, but all in all, I REALLY enjoyed it.  Bridgette thought the ending could have been a bit “harder” for Russell’s character, but I didn’t mind it at all.  Great-good.
