What sorcery is this? What dark magic led to the majestic wonder that is Jeff Driskel’s backside? And What did Quinton Dunbar do in a past life that was so heinous as to render him virtually cakeless next to a white man from Florida?

I haven’t seen it. Hell, this is the first I’ve heard of it. But it exists.
What’s next? The Princess Bride? Pink Floyd’s The Wall? Star Wars: A New Hope? Robin Hood: Men in Tights? Zardoz?
I mean, some remakes are good: The Thing (1982) being one of them, but the odds are low, especially when the movie you’re remaking is so damn good (despite being a sausage fest).
Speaking of remakes, when are we going to remake that commercial for Eris: The Movie? You know, the one starring Heather Graham.
I’m not sure so there are any good movie remakes, though: The Thing (1982) just happens to be the second adaptation of this one novella.
Nor sequels (with the exception of James Cameron), nor prequels.
Trying to cash in on the success of some already successful thing usually leads to bland, predictable, unadventurous stuff.
My understanding was that this was actually a semi-prequel to the 1982 film, i.e. It ends with the Norwegian scientists chasing after the dog-thing and trying to warn the Americans.
