I've always found John Carpenter's The Thing to be highly overrated. Certainly, the creature FX are astonishing, some of the best of that kind of stuff ever put on film. But the characters and dialogue are just there to pad out the film between monster scenes. It's really just a slasher film with a novel setting and a cool monster. All things considered, the 1950s original is a much better film.
