TOTAL RECALL Review. Is It Worth Your Money?

TOTAL RECALL Review By: MattInRC

TOTAL RECALL is a fun, action-packed summer blockbuster that's great eye candy and just smart enough for us nerds.

Make sure to come back soon. We got some information from a source who saw the unfinished film who gave us some comparisons from the unfinished film and the completed movie.


I remember watching Arnold Schwarzenegger's version of TOTAL RECALL when it came to theatres in 1990: sexy, sultry Sharon Stone, brandishing firearms against Arnold's Doug Quaid as he traveled to Mars to fulfill his destiny. The film raised interesting questions about memory without getting too involved in the discussion. Appearances by the alien named Quatto and Eddie the crazy cab driver turned hitman helped round out what I thought was a pretty good film. But in preparing for this review, rather than leaving its warm glow in my mind, I made the mistake of watching it again. Oh brother: campy and just plain cheesy, TR has not retained its cool 90'…

Secrets Of Disneyland. Can You Say You Have Done Any Of These?

Here's an insiders look to all the secrets that Disneyland has to hold. I can check off a few for the items on the list. Can you?

If I could live anywhere, I would live in The Haunted Mansion, like all year long," director Guillermo del Toro said last year at Comic-Con while discussing his upcoming film featuring Disneyland's iconic haunted house. And he's not alone.

Hollywood is full of filmmakers and talent who are addicted to Disneyland, which opened in 1955 and now averages 40,000 visitors a day. Zachary Levi, Gwen Stefani, John Stamos and Miley Cyrus count themselves as Anaheim regulars, and it's the date place of choice for Ryan Gosling (he's taken Kat Dennings, Blake Lively and Eva Mendes). "It's not about going on the rides as fast as possible," says music producer Matt Beckley. "It's an appreciation for the art that goes into it."

No matter how fanatical, though, few want to brave tourist hordes. With the June opening of th…

However, Dean has his sights set on becoming a professional race car driver. When a high-stakes investigation into their business unfolds, father and son are pushed into an unexpected situation that threatens the family’s…

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Gets A Rewrite

Chris McCoy is being tapped to rewrite Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel Studios’ space adventure movie.

Galaxy is part of Marvel’s second wave of movies and is the only new title among the crop of mostly sequels featuring Iron Man, Thor and Captain America. It was revealed as the company’s mystery movie in late June and officially announced at Comic-Con in July.

While there have been several incarnations of the team in the comics over the years, the movie’s lineup will include Drax the Destroyer, a human resurrected as a green warrior with the sole purpose of killing Thanos (the villain in the Avengers final-scene tease); Groot, a giant tree-man; Star-Lord, a gun-toting half-human/half-alien intergalactic vigilante; Rocket Raccoon, a genetically engineered animal with a knack for guns and explosives; and Gamora, the last survivor of her species who was saved by Thanos to be his assassin but now battles him.

Nicole Perlman wrote the previous draft. Perlman is graduate of Marvel’s now-def…

Kristen Stewart Will "Lie Down In Darkness"

Kristen Stewart may have become tabloid fodder in recent days, but the 22-year-old seems decidedly committed to being taken seriously as an actress: Vulture hears exclusively that Stewart has landed the lead role in an indie adaptation of William Styron’s 1951 novel, Lie Down In Darkness. Directed by Crazy Heart helmer Scott Cooper and set in genteel fifties Virginia, Lie Down will have Stewart play Peyton Loftis. As part of a dysfunctional and disintegrating family, Peyton is constantly compared to her crippled sister, Maudie, and her intense physical beauty makes her the object of her frigid mother’s jealous hatred and the target of her father’s incestuous, alcoholic lust. (Stewart will also appear in another fifties-era film, Walter Salles's On the Road, when it's released in the U.S. sometime this fall/winter.)

The part of Peyton had been coveted by Jennifer Lawrence, but Lawrence will spend the better part of the next year shooting sequels. (Catching Fire ignites this fal…

Lionsgate® and the filmmakers of THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE are pleased to announce that Lynn Cohen has been cast in the role of Mags in the much anticipated film adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ worldwide smash hit novel Catching Fire. A former mentor to Finnick Odair, Mags is an eighty year old Hunger Games victor from District 4.

Known to New York theater audiences for decades of memorable roles, Cohen has also appeared in critically acclaimed films such as Steven Spielberg’s Munich and Charlie Kaufman’s Synecdoche, NY, as well as commercial fare such as Sex and The City and its sequel. She can next be seen in They Came Together, with Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler.

THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a "Victor's Tour" of the districts. Along t…

Doctor Who Is The Villain In Thor 2

British actor Christopher Eccleston, who played Doctor Who during the 2005 season of the BBC sci-fi show, is in final negotiations to play the villain in Thor 2, Marvel Studios’ sequel to its 2011 hit.

Alan Taylor is directing the picture, which is officially titled Thor: The Dark World, and brings back most of the first movie’s cast, including Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor.

Could Zachary Levi Join Thor 2?-

Plot details are being kept in the farthest reaches of Valhalla, but Ellleston will play the ruler of the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim.

Eccleston has a penchant for playing bad guys, as he did in 28 Days Later, NBC’s Heroes, and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, where he played Destro.

Schwarzenegger Has The Last Stand

Ladies and gentlemen, brace yourselves. This might look like it's just a picture of a former governor of California but it is in fact your first look at the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger to leading film roles - specifically, his turn in The Last Stand as Sheriff Ray Owens.

The film sees Schwarzenegger play a former LAPD officer who has retired to a quieter life in a small town called Summerton Junction, near the Mexican border. His big problems start when a drug kingpin (Eduardo Noriega) escapes police custody and makes a run for the border - with only Owens standing in his way. Desperate, he deputizes the locals to fill out his force as the druglord and his lieutenants loom ever closer.

Schwarzenegger told USA Today that his character, "hasn't had to flex his muscles in a while. So when the gangsters come to town, it's a big test."

"You're rooting for him more because he's more like us," added producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura says. "And h…

Emma Stone To Star In A Cameron Crowe Film

Sony Pictures has just closed a deal for an untitled love story that Cameron Crowe will direct in the spring, with Emma Stone starring. Crowe wrote the script, and Scott Rudin is producing.

Prometheus Sequel Could Be On It's Way

Are your excited about this news?

The studio's big summer bet was Ridley Scott's Prometheus, June's sort-of Alien prequel. The $130 million-budgeted film grossed a solid but not spectacular $303 million globally, putting it right on the franchise bubble. Fox confirms to THR that Scott and the studio actively are pushing ahead with a follow-up (stars Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace are signed) and are talking to new writers because Prometheus co-scribe Damon Lindelof might not be available. "Ridley is incredibly excited about the movie, but we have to get it right. We can't rush it," says Fox president of production Emma Watts, who also has overseen the successful reboots of the X-Men and Planet of the Apes franchises. A Prometheus sequel would be released in 2014 or 2015.

Tom Hardy's Star Trek: Nemesis Screen Test With Actual Footage

Before Tom Hardy bulked up (again) and chilled audiences as Batman's nemesis Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, the actor got to play a villainous, younger, cloned version of Capt. Jean-Luc Picard in 2002's Star Trek: Nemesis. I don't even remember this movie or his role in the film. Now you can watch his first interaction with Picard himself, played by Sir Patrick Stewart.

The newly unearthed screen test is intermingled with the actual movie's filmed scenes, so you can have a nice look at the different nuances the two British actors brought both to the screen test and then to the actual finished film.

At the time, Hardy was a green and mostly unknown actor (with a few small roles in Band of Brothers and Black Hawk Down), but Star Trek: Nemesis helped get the young British thespian some international exposure with a performance that was both tragic and chilling—even though Nemesis became a complete commercial flop.
