I'm sure that I don't have to explain to you that "a lot" is not equal to
"all". Therefore, aliens and saucers do not qualify as a criteria. Is
Killer Klowns From Outer Space a sci fi movie? Why not- it's got aliens
and a ufo in it? Is it possible that the presence of an alien and a saucer
is not strict criteria to define genre?

If there can be said to be genre experts, I'm sure that most would agree
that The Thing (both versions) are sci fi/horror (and that's horror with
elements of sci fi). But to simply define them as sci fi would be absurd.
The whole point of these movies is to be scary, not to be scientifically
intriguing in the Jules Verne-ian sense.

Hehehe.. don't know what is coming though. Not my purview.

Where is what's his noodle? :]

Norm Wilner. I'll bet he'd know.

Oh, I don't know. I haven't seen it since I was a kid. But I remember the
funkidelic theme song.

Maybe if someone would challenge him to a sword-fight or something...

Show yourself, Wilner, you wag!

There is ALMOST enough information in your headers for me to come
find your lame ass, and put it under the earth where it belongs.

You had BETTER watch what the **** you say, boy.

Inciting someone IS a TOS violation, retard boy.

You have already crossed a line that you shouldn't have gone near,
don't make yourself a complete **** and force me to report your lame
ass, because I will.
