Also if you would like to keep your movie a surprise, for us, please at least make sure it is available on netflix, and let us know with enough time to get it from netflix.

Also, if in the review you reveal a huge plot point or spoiler, for those that haven't watched it yet, please in bold letters before you reveal it note SPOILER So somebody doesn't have something revealed before they watch it.

recommended homework prior to watching the first pick, The Thing:

first off, read the novella the movie is based on, the '50s story Who Goes There?
cool to see where it came from. the writing's not exactly genius, but it's a cool little story.
http://www.amazon.com/Who-Goes-There-Novella-Formed/dp/0982332203/ref=sr_1_5?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1310248179&sr=1-5

then check out the first movie based on Who Goes There?, the classic '50s flick The Thing From Another World. very very different from Carpenter's re-make, very of its era, but still enjoyable. directed by Howard Hawks, known for romantic comedies with snappy dialogue, which this movie likewise has tons of.

i'm not sure how netflix does all of their streaming, but i've seen in some cases that movies are NOT widescreen, but pan and scan.

The Thing should not be seen in pan and scan. it's shot in 'scope, like john carpenter shoots all of his movies, which is extremely wide, 2:35 to 1. so watching in pan and scan you lose at least one quarter of the image. don't cheat yourselves!


Come And See.
awesome.
i watched that off of your recommendation years ago and loved it. but yeah...that is one seriously bleak movie.

selection 1 looks interesting:
Quote
Scientists working in Antarctica are forced to abandon their research after a helicopter crashes near their camp, bringing a lone dog into their midst. But the plot thickens when the otherworldly canine changes form in the middle of the night. As it turns out, the dog is a shape-shifting alien that can attack animals -- and unsuspecting humans. Kurt Russell stars in this creepy John Carpenter-directed remake of the 1950s classic.

Haven't seen the Conversation yet, should by the end of this weekend, which I know is late in the cycle, but it'll get done. And since mine is up next, I just wanted to change my choice to a documentary that I really enjoyed recently instead, Flow: For Love of Water, by Salina (2008). That is all.
