Brian Cranston is the best actor alive today.

Yes he is very adaptable. Played Malcolm's Dad really well, and he is outstanding in Bad.

I haven't seen either version of Recall yet, I think my Dad has it on VHS in a box in the attic with all his old tapes, but we dont have a machine to play it on.


You know, hearing there are people alive today that never say John Carpenter's "The Thing" or the original "Total Recall" make me realize how old I am...

Dillster, do yourself a favor and pick it up on dvd. It's an all around great action/sci fi adventure. Leagues better and more fun than this paltry remake.

Completely agree. It's so rare to see an actor with such a wide range. Really hope he continues to get more and more roles. (hopefully in better films)

Happens more and more lately..that and certain movies hitting their 20, 25 and 30th anniversaries, really drives it home.

On topic, I was actually into seeing this, but based on reports, I think I could enjoy it just as much on blu-ray, for less.

P.S. Cranston is awesome! In Breaking Bad or whatever he does.

LOL Actually, The thread title came close to being exactly that! Probably would have been better if it was. I often wonder whether or not I chose the best title for these threads.

There is a box set of Arnie DVDs in the local HMV store. I'll get that for my Granddads birthday this coming week. He is an Arnie fan, so I'll gve him the box set and borrow recall out of it.

It's Kim Kardashian. Nice and beautiful on the outside but on the inside shallow and boring.

This movie has great fx and is beautiful and interesting in many parts and has beautiful people running around looking beautiful (Ferrel, Beal, Kate) By the way I ran into Kate at a store in New York and she is just as beautiful in real life as the movies, plus she is a really nice person.

Anyways.....that aside, this movie is but a shadow of the older Total Recall.

No humor.
No mutants
No Aliens

The original was fun, goofy and had all those things packed into one movie.
This had none of that. Just depressed emo looking distopian people walking around looking mad.

The film tries to pay homage to the old movie but each scene that it tries to pay homage is boring.

One scene as an example is when Arnold is at the checkpoint and his costume starts messing up. It is dramatic, funny especially seeing ARnold fighting in a dress. This one had a Hologram flicker and then he starts fighting.

The 3 boob chick was the only upgraded homage. Aside from that...booooring.

No Fun and no substance. Just another "let's start trying to be like Chris Nolan" realistic hipster mess.

Yawn.
Avoid this movie like the plague. It is nothing more than a demo reel of great FX, but nothing we ain't seen before.

Do You have any idea how depressing that is for ME ? I watched it in the theater, dammit !
Now I feel old. Best put me on the attic, too.
