Awesome / The Thing (1982)

  • The entire blood testing scene.
  • Mac's final confrontation with the Thing. Facing the remains of most of his friends all mashed together in one giant Eldritch Abomination, he burns it, then when a piece tries to detach and escape....
    ''Yeah? Well FUCK YOU, TOO!'' *throws dynamite*
  • The transformations stand out being moments of awesome by itself.
    • Also an off-screen Moment Of Awesome for Rob Bottin, who worked so hard he ended up in hospital with exhaustion. (And a small one to Stan Winston, who declined prominent credit for working on the Dog-Thing sequence to ensure Bottin wouldn't be overshadowed.)
  • Garry pulling off a Moe Greene Special against the crazed Norwegian. Sure, it's a case of Nice Job Breaking It, Hero, but it's still an impressive shot.
