TIL that Bob Crane who played Hogan on "Hogans Heroes" was bludgeoned to death in 1978. The murder was possibly connected his sexual exploits with many women that he filmed with Henry John Carpenter. Carpenter was charged with the murder in 1994 but found not guilty, the case remains unsolved. crimelibrary.com/notoriou…

Re-watching "The Thing" by John Carpenter

I got into a long conversation with my son about old games that truly freaked me out. One was Half-Life 2, and the other was "The Thing." He didn't know what I was talking about, so we started watching it together. Immediately, he understood how creepy the premise is. You're alone, isolated, and you only have like twelve people you can trust. Or you can't. Carpenter beautifully executes what terror is. It's a masterpiece. Such a great concept and really well done. This movie ages well.

John Carpenter's The Thing assimilates Ego the Living Planet. Can it take over the entire MCU?

NOTE: Consider this as taking place before Guardians of the Galxy Vol. 2

The Thing has absorbed and copied Ego the Living Planet, and acquired an insane amount of biomass in the process. Assuming does retain his powers and knowledge, can it find a way to assimilate the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Rules: It wins once it has taken so much biomass, it is impossible for any being to stop it (TOAA is not to be considered).

John Carpenter’s β€œThe Thing” Themed Deck

My playgroup had recently gone through the arms race phase of a group’s lifecycle, so i proposed that for Halloween that we make themed based decks as a change of pace. Sadly, we didn’t get to test them out, but I’m super proud of my deck list. The commander is [[Lazav, Dimir Mastermind]] and the deck theme is shapeshifters with a sub-theme of milling, for obvious Lazav reasons.

I only included cards that could be tied to the film (though I’ll admire some of them are grasping at straws).

Example: I made sure that the only shapeshifters included in the deck either depicted the original and the copy in the art, or had some kind of body horror duplicating the transformation.

The biggest reach (literally) is [[Drowned in the Loch]]. You might be thinking, β€œhow does that fit into the Space Alien Shapeshifter theme?”

Well let me refer to the blood test scene from the film. There is a prop hand that is supposed to be Kurt Russel’s, when he presses the hot needle to the dish and the blood reacts and jumps out. If you redirect your attention back to the card, I think you’ll see the connection ;)

It was a blast to build, and feel free to ask questions about the card choices. I’d love to watch people guess the tough ones.

https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/john-carpenters-the-thing-edh-deck/?cb=1605380093

Edit: [[Anthroplasm]] and [[Volrath’s Shapeshifter]] have probably the perfect art, but they were literally the last two cards to get cut for less clunky options. Sad face, but I might put them back in if the deck operates well enough to include purely flavor cards.

What I appreciate the most about John Carpenter’s The Thing

When it comes to horror movies, and especially creature features, one of the most frustrating and over used tropes is when only the protagonist sees the monster and no one else believes them. Unless the movie is going for a head fake and legitimately commits to wanting you to question the protagonist’s frame of mind this just wastes time since you know by the start of the third act, everyone will believe them anyways.

This is not the case with The Thing however. In fact, it’s the exact opposite. In the three pivotal scenes regarding the alien, it’s initial reveal as the dog, when they catch it morphing into Bennings, and when they do the blood test, all the characters are present, so there’s no one to doubt what happens. This is great because by the end of the first act, the characters are already at a point that they wouldn’t reach until the third act in a lesser movie. To me, that’s why The Thing is a notch about the majority of horror films, it truly feels like an evolution of the formula that breaks new ground. Exploring the idea of paranoia and suspicion is so much more unique and interesting in this case than doubting your sanity. Such a smart move by screenwriter Bill Lancaster that Carpenter just nailed the execution of.

John Carpenter's Vampires (1998) was the best movie to carve pumpkins to last night.

James Woods and Dani Baldwin are Vampire Hunters in Texas. They dress in black, talk fast, make the best 90's witty jokes, and beat everyone up. James Woods at one point asks the Padre if he got wood when he was beating him up for info in the scene prior. Dani Baldwin has to tie down a girl and strip her naked just to get her name. There are constant explosions, blood everywhere. One point a guy gets cut in half and the practical effects are great. Yet there were so many laughable moments, of unintentional hilarity. A guy in the most 90s party scene ever, is partying too hard and just takes a lamp and throws it out the window. Guns were blazing in every scene, James Woods curses every five seconds. Samuel Jackson would be upset by how many times Woods screamed MOTHER FUCKER! I legit thought Tarantino made it at one point. It's a little similar to Dusk till Dawn. I loved it, it's fantastically terrible in a 90s kind of way. The banter between Woods and the 'Master Vampire' was too good. "You want to bite my ass, would that make you happy?"
