The 2011 prequel to The Thing was a movie that bombed harder at the box office than a T-1000 into a pool full of mercury. A fact many attributed to the film’s atrocious CGI, an element of the film it later emerged was added at the last second for the stupidest fucking reason ever.
With the ever-rising cost of fuel being an ever-present concern for vehicle owners and the depressingly slow uptake of electrical vehicles, the idea of a car that runs on any random shit a person could find lying around their house sounds like science fiction. Weirdly this exact technology existed in the 1960’s, it just never caught on.
The T-1000 is among the scariest and most eminently recognizable villains in pop culture. It’s a tireless killing machine that can run forever before assuming the form of a loved one and stabbing you in the dick, with it’s own dick. It’s also a role Robert Patrick landed by staring.
Willem Dafoe is an incredibly talented and versatile actor with exceptional range as a performer. A factor that resulted in many a baffled critic when he made the decision to play the Green Goblin, the psychopathic billionaire antagonist of Spider-Man, in the 2002 film of the same name. A role it turns out, Dafoe was insistent only he could play.
Like many actors who cut their teeth in the world of television Nick Offerman will likely be forever synonymous with his breakout role. In this case, burly mustachioed man of the people Ron Swanson from Parks and Rec. A fact Offerman likely doesn’t mind considering that he and Ron are so similar the writers on the show kept accidentally coming up with character quirks for Ron they didn’t know Offerman shared.
