Yeah, that's a pretty good movie and the effects are good for its time.  I didn't think Waites was any good in it though, he seems to overact in every scene.

Yes - his character's name was WINDOWS - and he dies in it too - pretty cool film, John Carpenter's Thing was a nicely interpretation.

I'm glad that Tom Waites put aside his issues with the film to lend his voice to the FOX character for the game.

But then again, he must still have some issues if he does not appear on the DVD.

I don't think he has any issues with the film anymore, I'm sure looking back he's proud to of been a part of it, but he's probably still not on talking terms with Walter Hill. And Hill wasn't involved with the game, which would explain why Waites had no problems doing it, but Hill was very involved with the DVD, so perhaps Waites didn't want to do it because he didn't want to run into him or maybe he wasn't asked.

Windows is a great character in THE THING. John Carpenter (one of my all-time favorites) did an incredible job with that flick, especially considering the special effects for the time. I saw it in the theater and everyone was totally freaked out by the end. Kurt Russell was also one Hell of a great leading actor in it. I loved that crazy looking sombrero/cowboy hat that he sports in it.

If you liked the flick, you ought to check out the SE Director's Cut and watch all the interviews. They are almost as good as the movie itself...

Funny how so many of us have the same taste in movies.  The THING is in my top 20 all time favorite movies.  I thought all the actors in this movie were superb.    The SE DVD is quite awesome.  Probably one of the best crew interview films I've ever seen.  I may have to watch it again this weekend.
