I think they should remake The Thing, with all the CGI and technology we have now, we could easily remake this cult classic and show the new audiences what true terror really feels like, although i would only want it to happen if it was directed/written by John Carpenter (the director of the original remake), Marcus Nispel (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2003 director), David Slade (30 days of night Director), or Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes director).

That movie is already well done, even with the special effects available at the time. While some old special effects are cheesy a lot of them are actually well done. A movie shouldn't be remade just so CGI can be slapped onto it. In many cases CGI looks pretty cheesy too, and is often easier to spot as fake then other types of special effects like miniature models. Think about those "enhanced" Star Wars that came out a number of years back. A bunch of CGI stuff was added in that just looked wrong. Good movies should usually be left alone because even if the special effects can be improved, quality depends on so much more than that. There has to be good actors, good writing, good directing, good production, and the special effects need to be used wisely. I prefer the idea of remaking movies that were mediocre but showed promise. That way a good movie idea can have another chance.

I really want to stab you in the dick.

That movie is a cult classic. The stop motion and special effects in that movie are incredible, even by today's standards. Not to mention that the movie wouldnt be the same without Kurt Russel and Keith David. Not to mention the fact that it is one of the greatest scifi/horror movies ever made. If they were to remake it, it would turn into just another slasher. We dont want that happening now do we?

How about instead of remaking the thing they just make another horror movie with an alien. Alien, Predator, The Thing. Same basic ploy. WHY do they need to remake it.

I just gave a good list of writer/directors for it. And with it being remade, i'd assume those things are automatic givens, just look at every remake put out, their always top quality (The Day the Earth Stood Still, King Kong, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Halloween, well, i mean Rob Zombie did more of a reimagining of Halloween but i liked it, alot, and yes, i've seen them all), were they able to stand up to the originals, as in, were they comparable? Some of them, yes, but were they better? Ofcourse not, remakes are NEVER better, but it's still fun to see what an old movie would look like with an update, it doesn't destroy the older one. And you guys know that The Thing was a remake itself right?

I don't really hink any film deserves the torture being remade by today's standards; none of the current remakes impress me, and a lot of people I've spoken to, actually.

Remakes are a catch 22. The makers can't make them the same as no one will watch them. If they are too different too many people complain and then (as mentioned) may as well give it a new title

The Thing is a brilliant film as it is, Come to think of it the original was a great film as well (yes The thing was a remake) A good example of why they should leave the classics alone is the remake of The day the earth stood still. That was total crap compared to the original with too much cgi and not enough tension.
