Jimsaid on Friday, August 17, 2012 1:33:07 AMTo me there's too many remakes of good movies being done that aren't needed with Point Break, Dirty Dancing, Time Bandits, Near Dark and Romancing the Stone in the works, I'm sick to my stomach.
There's much more books to make into movies so why not just make those and leave classic good movies alone. Total Recall was a classic, I didn't see the new film but I doubt it's an instant classic like the original.
Devon Hughessaid on Tuesday, August 14, 2012 10:21:05 AMI loved Total Recall - it didn't try to be anything it wasn't and it was a lot of great fun to watch, sticking true to the action genre from which it was first born. Really enjoyed this movie, check out my review. :)
RIK FONTANAsaid on Sunday, August 05, 2012 10:18:38 PMAlmost Total Agreement for Total Recall, Richard. 'A' for the original, but too much Mindless action in what should be a thought-provoking film for the new version, so 'C+'.
David Pittnersaid on Sunday, August 05, 2012 10:57:27 AMAre there links to read your reviews or am I always forced to watch video? Sometime I'm on my phone in public in line somewhere or in a waiting room and would just like to read what you have to say about a film. Also, sometimes my phone has issues playing the videos so I have a difficult time with it.
