I draw the webcomic Manly Guys Doing Manly Things and work on cartoons you might see on TV sometimes.

Oh, by the way, The Thing From Another World was terrible. Just saying.

 You seem to have missed my sarcasm and didn’t catch that I’m saying the 1980’s Thing movie proves remakes can bring something new to the table and aren’t worth condemning the very idea of. And that it seems quite ironic that people would choose a movie that IS a very successful remake to use in their “remakes are horrible and should never happen” rants.

I. Can’t. Wait.

Oh my god they’re remaking The Thing? This should be interesting… The sudden influx of 80’s movie remakes is astounding. 

Whenever I hear people make a big deal about the idea of the Thing being remade, the first thing I think is “Oh yeah how dare they remake that beloved horror classic from 1951. Oh wait they’re complaining about people expanding on that remake of it from 1982. Golly Gee Wow remakes sure are 100% guaranteed to be awful and not bring anything new to the table, huh?”
The second thing I think is “it’s not even a remake, it’s a prequel.”
