What is bad, is these freaking people who weld these shitty nostalgia goggles to their heads, and claim that the 82 movie was one of the best things ever. It wasn't. I could point out plot holes in this movie, as well as glaringly obvious ones in 82. People just like to hate things because they're new.
I don't think the movie being new is the reason why people think the 2011 Thing movie sucks? People think the John Carpenter is much better because the characters are much better, the use practical effects are better, the suspense is much better and the atmosphere with a strong sense of tension using creepy music is much better. It's not that hard to comprehend.
Edit: The original Comic Con trailer is now in HD BTW
