I watched John Carpenter’s The Thing again the other night. I love that movie! Such a great sense of tension and paranoia. Though with a movie full of men it doesn’t leave much room for romantic entanglements or plot drivers.

So I started thinking…what would a woman do if she were in that situation? She’d undoubtedly handle it better than most of the men. Except MacReady, he rocks and of course is totally gorgeous. Kurt Russell is always so fun to watch.
