I will have to see "The Thing" finally I guess. You know, I never heard a DAMN thing about this movie hype-wise my whole life until they started making it one of the freebie HD-DVDs you could get with a player. After that no one would shut up about it. And it became one of the first catalog titles people started whining about not having once Universal switched over to Blu...

If the spec list is final, people on the blu-ray.com board are saying that "The Thing" is missing the 80-minute documentary. That would eliminate it as a buy possibility for me. Not interested in double-dips that could have easily been prevented.
