So last weekend, I watched "The Thing
" on Amazon Prime, thinking that it is a remake of the original "&The Thing" film
It has been many years since I saw the original movie, so I was confused about all the people speaking Norwegian, and the discovery of an alien space ship, of which I was sure it didn't happen in the original movie. Also, the main character was female, suddenly. I was pretty pissed by then, assuming this was again a pretty poor remake with lots of changes in the plot, "just because". Lowering my expectations for the rest of the film, it still was a bit entertaining, although not very thrilling.
Then came the ending, and - boy - I was wrong! Didn't the original movie start with a helicopter chasing a dog? That's right how The Thing (2011) ends! Embarrassing. So it was a prequel. And by today's standards, actually not a bad one.
