In this episode of Natter Cast, Jason and the Oscar Blogger himself Andrew Littlefield do a remake throw down of Christian Nyby/Howard Hawks' 1951 classic "The Thing From Another World" against John Carpenter's 1982 classic remake entitled simply "The Thing."
Andrew will be defending the original classic, in which we learn that army guys get nervous around girls, that artctic researchers are GGG with a little light rope bondage, that only animal arrogance denies the intelligence of vegetables, that scientists can be both smart AND filled with "wild blueberry muffins" and that you can boil, bake or fry a carrot, even a vampire space carrot.
Jason will be defending the remake, in which we learn that computers are cheatin' beyotches, that Norwegians are crazy Swedes, that space clones are voodoo bowl sheet, that the Backscatter Effect has been rockin' out for hundreds of thousands of years, that the chameleon strikes in the dark, that spending the winter tied to a frickin' couch can affect mood, and that things can even freak out other things.
So join Jason, Andrew, Garry, MacReady, Nauls, Childs, Captain Hendry, Nikki, Blair, Palmer, Dr. Carrington, Scotty, Windows, Dr Stern and the rest for a two our tour (a two hour tour!) of Thing vs. Thing!
