One of the things I don't like about The Thing. MacReady (Kurt Russell) plays computer chess game Chess Wizard and pours whiskey into the computer when he loses. What a moronic thing to do, the computer beats him, so he fucks it up, & he & no one else can play computer chess on it anymore, & this is our hero, plus he's a miserable sod throughout the film. Great special effects, but a terribly written film.
No long-winded response from me to Rameau can equal this.
