This film looks at life in the Bedford-Stuyvesant district of Brooklyn on a hot summer Sunday. As he does everyday, Sal Fragione opens the pizza parlor he's owned for 25 years. The neighborhood has changed considerably in the time he's been there and is now composed primarily of African-Americans and Hispanics. His son Pino hates it there and would like nothing better than to relocate the eatery to their own neighborhood. For Sal however, the restaurant represents something that is part of his life and sees it as a part of the community. What begins as a simple complaint by one of his customers, Buggin Out - who wonders why he has only pictures of famous Italian-Americans on the wall when most of his customers are black - eventually disintegrates into violence as frustration seemingly brings out the worst in everyone.

There have been shows like Batman: TAS that went on to share significant amounts of narrative DNA with other shows like Justice League , but again the difference here was that the studio took the time to “teach” audiences how to consume the stories that they were telling and understand that they were independent from one another. For example, The Batman , Beware The Batman , Batman Unlimited , and Justice League Action are all shows that prominently feature Batman, but the each differentiates itself in terms of tone and visual aesthetic to convey that they’re their own thing. The beauty of these animated shows and movies is that they cost a significantly lower amount of money to make and if one stops being profitable, Warner Bros. can pack it up and start all over again. That isn’t quite the case with a multimillion dollar live action movie.
A US research station, Antarctica, early-winter 1982. The base is suddenly buzzed by a helicopter from the nearby Norwegian research station. They are trying to kill a dog that has escaped from their base. After the destruction of the Norwegian chopper the members of the US team fly to the Norwegian base, only to discover them all dead or missing. They do find the remains of a strange creature the Norwegians burned. The Americans take it to their base and deduce that it is an alien life form. After a while it is apparent that the alien can take over and assimilate into other life forms, including humans, and can spread like a virus. This means that anyone at the base could be inhabited by The Thing, and tensions escalate. Written by grantss
