Now that's just not fair!
Ho in the hell are you supposed to make that choice. Big Trouble is one of the great all time B-Movies and The Thing is best remake of a horror movie ever done no contest, but which one do I like more head to head?
If I had to choose to watch one right now and they are beginning at the same time and I have to choose which one to watch, I am always good a laugh and some old fashion silly fun.
The Thing is actually a great film, while Big Trouble is just funny and campy.
My weakness for sci-fi speaks for me. "The Thing" is just light-years better than it had any right to be. Probably Carpenter's masterpiece.
To much camp in Big Trouble in Little China.
Big Trouble in Little China is really entertaining, but it doesn't hold up against The Thing. The "You gotta be fucking kidding" scene is unbeatable.
Haha, there's a "you gotta be fucking kidding" scene in both movies. More or less.
Gotta go with The Thing--BTiLC probably has a better concept than execution. I dunno, throughout the entire movie the characters are running around going "this is unbelievable! this is such a zany situation! what's going on?!" and I'm just not feelin' it.
Plus the action is kinda uninspired.
The Thing has aged like fine wine into accidental camp (the best kind).
Oh, well, guess I'm one of the few here: Big Trouble in Little China by a lot. And I think The Thing is great, so at the end of the day, there are no losers here. But let me put it this way: Big Trouble is funnier than The Thing is scary. The Thing IS scary, don't get me wrong, but some of its special effects are a little campy when you think about them. Great, but campy. Speaking of camp, I loved the level of camp in Big Trouble. That feeling of "what the hell is going on" combined with the incredibly fun performance by Kurt Russell, the over-the-top special effects, the amazing set designs, the fights, the music and the ridiculous nonsense story make this a highly enjoyable ride. Ride...they should make an attraction out of this. Pirates of the Caribbean-esque. I can see it working. COPYRIGHT MYSTICSPOON 2013.

I had more fun watching Big Trouble in Little China than I was horrified while watching The Thing

I'll go with Big Trouble right now, but I reserve the right to change down the road...
