It’s been a few seasons now, and Mumble (Elijah Wood) and his lovely mate, Gloria (Pink) finally made their own egg, and this fluffy little bundle is Erik (Ava Acres). He’s got a wonderful talent for song, but can’t quite keep up with his father’s feet. The whole of the Emperorland has become one big party during the summer, but Erik just can’t get into the beat, and he’s afraid of joining in. Meanwhile, below the ice Will (Brad Pitt) and Bill (Matt Damon) the Krills are wanting to know what life is like beyond the krill swarm, and Will decides it’s time to move on.
There are some classics that are almost always going to be remade and I think that in another 10 years you will probably see this one remade again. It seems that when ever there is a great leap in technology that this one becomes the guinea pig for that to see just what can be done. For some stories this is a bad thing but for The Thing I think it will always be revisited. It is the unknown terror and horror of the story that draws the viewer in and then slams them against the wall as they catch their breath. That is what a terror and thriller film are supposed to do. It is supposed to make you hold your breath and then jump or scream with something happens. This film uses those tried and true methods of scaring you without being a blood bath like the current films of the past few years.
As the tag in the title says, this film will get your toes and fingers tapping as you are watching the film. While Musings has reviewed this film before it deserves a revisit not only because it is a different reviewer but it just really is that good of a film. We get to see the journey of discovery by a loveable little fuzz ball of a penguin named Mumbles and how it is that he is able to save his entire race from starvation and death. It is a film that will move your heart and might even bring a tear to your eye but in the end you are going to be feeling good about yourself and those around you. It really that powerful a movie that will stick with you for a very VERY long time.
This match 3 marble popper game was listed as a recommendation for those whom like these kinds of games, so I thought I’d give it a try. It turned out to be the same old game with a new paint job, but now that I’ve started telling you about it, I might as well finish.
