    The Thing 2010 remake is only worth watching if your a big fan of the John Carpenter classic.

    Its an interesting backstory but has faults with its shot for shot dependence on Carpenters film and storyline.

    IMO.

    Let me put this out there, I am a John Carpenter fan, and I loved his remake.

    The new version starts out strong, but in my opinion falls victim to the over use of mediocre digital effects.

    The movie looks great for the most part, and the acting is fine.

    Every time I see the Immortals commercial I find myself waiting to hear "Just Like You Imagined" by NIN. Looks good, I'm waiting for it to hit redbox
