On this week’s What the Flick, I join critics Christy Lemire (AP, Ebert Presents At the Movies) and Alonso Duralde (The Wrap, Linoleum Knife podcast) to review Footloose and The Thing, and we’re surprisingly positive on both.


68%

Footloose

Christy, Alonso and I are all surprised at how much we liked the Footloose remake, which was directed by Craig Brewer (Hustle & Flow, Black Snake Moan).


34%

The Thing

Alonso and I tackle The Thing, and we’re both much more positive on this movie than most critics (as seen from the Tomatometer).

I’ll return to What the Flick!? in two weeks, so check back in for our special Halloween show on October 28. In the meantime, you can see the archive of What the Flick!? reviews here.
