John Carpenter’s 1982 horror classic, The Thing, is one of the greatest films ever made – regardless of genre.

Disregarding how much fun the film is to watch, you look at everything it had to over come to reach the cult status it has achieved today and it is outstanding! I will get into the analysis of the film soon, but I think it is only fair to let you know where The Thing started. Continue reading

I consider an actor to be cool if they’re willing to go from being John Carpenter’s go-to guy in movies like The Thing (1982) and They Live (1988), to doing a single line for a character in a cartoon never to be seen again, yet it’s not a cameo. Some would just call that being a small-time actor, and maybe that’s true, but you need those guys all the same.

And Keith David is one of those guys who’s been doing that so well for so long, he’s almost famous for it. Almost. Continue reading
