The worst thing about prequels is you know how they are going to end. You kind of loose some of the suspense when you know who’s gonna win in the end. I wonder if the last scene will be a first person view from the helicopter as explosives are dropped, or maybe first person view from the dog as it’s running from one camp to another.[/quote]

I have to agree…if it is written well. The new Star Trek was essentially a prequel (as well as a reboot) and what helped make it work is we as the audience already knew who was going to team up…and what was interesting was watching how the pieces fell together.
All we know from the last movie is that part of “the thing” survived and that two of the people left alive don’t speak English. That is essentially ALL they need to work towards.
That leaves open tons of ground.[/quote]
I’m with this. I’m not sure you guys are young enough to remember the talk when the “Aliens” movie came out. People were like ehh it will never match the suspense. But they went another route with the same Good guy Bad guy idea and it was at least to me a Better movie. Not as suspensfull but better.
My only gripe is if the do go all CGI. They need to up the anti to bring in more grit and grime. Becuase some CGI is just to clean. Its why movies like Avatar work they make it like a painting soemthing you can frame so neat and clean. Only with a movie like the THING you don’t want to frame any of those scenes.
Those are Nightmares.
