Monster of the Day #1227

Another shot from The Thing prequel/redo. Not my bag, really.

The extraction / healing so far has been pretty painless. Mostly it’s about not disturbing the blood clot so you don’t get a horrific sounding thing called dry socket. By Sunday I might try Mac & Cheese and see how that goes. So far so good, though.

I never appreciated how big a molar is, though. Man, that’s a big gape in my teeth.

    Good to hear you’re feeling better Ken. After having two broken when the airbag went off in my face during an car accident about a year ago trust me, no matter how small the tooth might be it leaves a mighty big gap.

    Left side molars extracted…oh, yeah, chewing is tough. Now absorbing a body, that looks easy…
    Yuck! No wonder I don’t ‘do’ horror…too much like real life.
    ISIS makes people kneel on Det. Cord and makes it go ‘boom’…yeah…try equaling real life horror, you yutzes.

    IIRC, it is the tongue’s sensitivity that makes the gap seem so big.

    It’s never fun to have a tooth removed, even when it’s gone dead and already broken apart (as happened to me earlier this year). May yours heal soon!

    And that picture there, is the monster looking like a human female? And I suppose it’s having lunch? Man but this looks like it was one weird movie.

    I watched this again tonight. Those who feel it’s yet another CGI freakout are incorrect…there are a lot of practical effects throughout the film. And aside from a couple of “modern Hollywood points” it’s actually a pretty good movie. For those of you who are “Harbinger Down is practical effects and it rules, and The Thing prequel is terrible because digital!” you might be surprised to know that the Harbinger effects team of Gillis and Woodruff…were the Thing team on this movie as well.
