You know, for a reboot, that doesn't look half bad. I'm really glad it's not a straight up remake, but rather what appears to be a different story but with the similar premise.

Bah!

Looks like too much bullet time. And Beckinsale and Biel are too old. They should have cast Vanessa Hudgens and Sarah Hyland.

It's a pity neither adaption does the double-twist that's in the original short story.

/Not that I know the plot of this version, but given that it's missing Mars, it's a good assumption.

2012-04-02 12:46:09 PM  
Why?

I need someone to explain this to me. First off, I should probably explain that I'm an old fart in Hollywood's eyes. I have the original Total Recall on VHS. This movie is also available on DVD and BluRay, Amazon VOD, iTunes and it's probably on a million torrent sites. It doesn't appear to be an attempt to attract the teeny-bopper audience as these aren't teeny-bopper actors. I should be the target for this movie. I'm a huge Phillip K. Dick fan and I'm the same age as Kate Beckinsale, but I have no desire to go see this. So who is the target audience?

TravisBickle62: Looks like a typical CGI-fest


Agreed, but I just happened to watch the first Total Recall the other night for the first time in years. And wow, for a 1990 movie did they ever do a crappy job with the set and technology. LCDs existed then, and yet they had some guy with dorky 80s glasses carrying around a CRT-screen tracker.

Plus the new version has Bill Nighy.

Hell yes. I don't know if Hudgens can act, but I'll be too busy drooling to notice.

Is Jessica Biel gonna be the three tittied chick?

Interestingly enough, though, I think I see a nod to Mars having only 38% of the gravity on Earth, with some leaps and other moves that would be obviously impossible on Earth.

I thought you had 7?

Also, I'm not totally reved for this remake, but it is looking decent. Looks like they're mashing up a lot of the PKD stories into here. Also, liked the little nods to the original Total Recal, like the fightscene with the guards and the style of the chair in Recal.
 
2012-04-02 12:57:31 PM  
Jesus fark, there was way too much camera movement in that showdown around the Rekall device. How about a stationary camera?
 
2012-04-02 12:57:37 PM  
Peanut butter?
 
2012-04-02 12:57:54 PM  
The major thing I would change from the original is getting rid of the three breasted prostitute. Instead give both Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsdale three breasts each and then have a naked threesome scene with them. 3^3.

stuhayes2010: I think it looks alright. But, you get a star and a half just for Kate B in sexy clothing.


I dunno,man. That constituted the better part of Underworld:Awakening,but failed to titillate me this time around. She's hot as shiat and I'd run over a few senior citizens for a chance with her,but her shtick'd getting a little...boring.

We need a stupid button for comments like this. I'm watching you mister, and I shall become very cross if you disparage Beckinsale a second time.

Also, why does Cerberus want to arrest him?
 
2012-04-02 01:07:07 PM  
So this new reboot doesn't happen on Mars? What about Benny and his 5 kids he has to feed?

LCD wasn't available for PCs until the early/mid-90s. Total Recall was out in 1990, so was probably filmed around '89.

So much CGI that in the initial scene where Farrell is doing his Arnold moves, it just looked completely unbelievable and mostly CGI, and it probably wasn't. It was probably real but came off as CGI bullshiat.

This Total Recall seems to have a lot of Bourne Identity in it.

No Mars?

Get ready for a big Surprise!

Oh, and I would kill all of you to be the middle of a Beckinsale and Biel sandwich.
