I’m a big fan of Philip K. Dick stories, but the movies they inspire tend to be hit or miss. The original Total Recall film was silly, but it had it’s moments. I don’t know quite what to make of this reboot, even after this new trailer:
Ok, fellas, first thing’s first. You can stop asking about the three-breasted prostitute, okay? There. She’s in the movie. Let’s move on. I can’t tell if this one will be a great PKD movie or a sub-par one. I’d love it to be good–full of PKD paranoia and questioning of reality–but so many PKD movies just become spectacles instead of good stories. And all that preaching aside, if it’s as fun as the original, I’ll probably end up seeing it.
And am I crazy, or does it look a little Minority Report-ish and a little Fifth Element-ish, particularly the cars? Anyway, what do you think?
