I’ve long held the belief that I was born in the wrong time. Despite still being a wee lad, many of my favorite movies, mostly late 70s and 80s sci-fi and cult flicks like Terminator, Alien, The Thing, Escape from New York and many others came out before I was born or when I was too young to see them in the theatres. And like many with my tastes, I hate it—absolutely hate it when the nimrods in Hollywood decide to create a prequel/sequel/remake of these movies. Case in point: 2011’s The Thing, one of the most annoying films I’ve ever shelled out nine bucks for. But I gotta see it, right? I’m almost required by fandom law to see these films even if it’s just to go straight home and complain about it on the internet.
