Bloody Disgusting recently had an article series that pitted two remakes against each other. In one, they asked which was better: The Fly (1986) or The Thing (1982)? Most of you know that I come down very strongly on the side of The Thing. Nothing against The Fly, it's an amazing film and while I do find a lot of Cronenberg's work very enjoyable if slightly sterile, I LOVE The Thing.
Discussing it with Elizabeth, I realized that there are few films that I like better than The Thing. In fact while thinking about it I could only put Halloween above it. I realize this makes me a huge Carpenter homer but that's a badge I proudly wear. My question is this: Do you ever see or think about a film and realize that it occupies a different place in your estimation than you realized?
