Episode #128 for Total Recall (2012), in which our protagonist applauds remakes that go their own way (like the song said to), applauds goofball 80s sci-fi and especially applauds sexy, scary, beat-your-ass Kate Beckinsale.

  • I think it’s very telling that the aesthetic homages you mentioned are both to other movies based on Philip K. Dick stories.

  • Ha! Well, there’s bloody proof that I come straight from the cinema…neurons hadn’t completely made that connection yet. Either that or proof the meds aren’t working.

  • I completely agree with your review. It’s funny, I decided I was gonna comment when you were wrapping up. I was going to say about the only thing you didn’t mention that I liked was Bryan Cranston and then we had your coda to your post. It didn’t feel original but the pacing and cast was good enough to keep it hopping along, so I was happy.
    I’m all for more sci-fi to be made so hopefully this does well.

  • Dan: Yeah, I didn’t want to say too much about Cranston and especially Nighy so I wouldn’t spoil anything. But talk about two solid actors who just make you feel at ease when they hit the screen. Thanks for the comment.
