Yep, it's totally bonkers and a lorry load of fun. I haven't seen it in years - I'll really have to seek it out.

Cheeky. I think you've been up without sleep too long. Since when does Jackie Chan look like Kurt Russell?

Whilst BTiLC is perfectly acceptable, if you want a great Kurt Russell movie young Eocene then watch John Carpenter'sThe Thing.

Agreed- a classic that surpassed the sequel Escape from L.A. by light years.

Both very good choices, though Big Trouble is more fun.

This is Jack Burton in the Pork Chop Express, and I'm talkin' to whoever's listenin' out there.

True. BTiLC certainly is non-stop fun.

Whereas The Thing is non-stop doom and gloom. But in a wonderfully ground breaking way. Smile

Agreed. I can't say I'm overly enthused at the prospect of the forthcoming 'prequel'.

Wha... Whoa! Hold on there. A "prequel" to The Thing?

This sounds about as bad an idea as a sequel to Tron.

Trouble is, where can it go? And it'll be CGI whereas the 1982 movie was simply awesome in its use of the effects crew's imaginations.

I'd have preferred the once mooted sequel with Macready and Childs to have been made. But that time has long since passed.

You honestly hadn't heard about it? It's set at the Swedish base mentioned during the the first movie. Here's a little more...Info

Read it and weep.

Read it and weep, indeed. Sad

Did you happen to notice there's a member of the cast who's name is "Stig"?

Exactly. This can bring little or nothing new to the table. It's entirely pointless, basically.

Certainly did. I really don't think I'll be first at the box office for this one.
