The Thing (John Carpenter, 1982)

Kurt's #beardgame is tight.

You know, for a second, I actually allowed myself to believe that two Black characters might survive the horrors of this film.

Solid flick, even though the final showdown wasn't much of a showdown. Kurt's "Yeah, fuck you too" was good for laughs, and the final FINAL showdown was a really great way to end the film. Much better than the alternate ending I read about.

A masterpiece, IMO.

Can I link my post about it here?

Of course.

I remember you doing a post about it, but I was too lazy to look it up.
