'I went into his room and thought: "This is / That's / It's a mess.'"
I'd say, "This is a mess!" under in most situations. However, I see nothing wrong with any of the three choices.
If I am with another person. I may choose "That's a mess!" Or if I am comparing it with with the condition of another room, I may choose "That's a mess!"
If someone asks me the check on the room, I may yell at home, "It's a mess!"
'The show was ghastly, but I won't keep complaining about this/that/it.'
I think I'd say, "...about it" in most situations. However, I see nothing wrong with any of the three choices.
I'd probably choose "...about this" or "...about that" if the show is just one of several things that I am complaining about. (I got there late, I couldn't find a place to park, the seats were terrible, and the show was ghastly, but I won't keep complaining about this/that. I promise that I won't complain again tonight.)
If you ask another native speaker, he will probably have another reaction to your sentences. Why? Why do I prefer apple pie to peach pie? Why do I prefer coconut ice cream to strawberry ice cream?
