OvomorphMember0 XPAug-07-2012 9:49 PMWARNING SPOILERS FOR TOTAL RECALL 2012 I put a warning up as I have no wish to spoil it for anyone. You will see why I put this up.... First off I stopped watching about 1/2 way through IT WAS THAT GOOD But, there were scenes straight out of Bladerunner as far as I got... childhood memories said in sycn and finish by the "revealer", memories coming forth while seated at a piano, the flying cars (even though it seemed important that you knew they were suspended by a Mag-Lev system) all looked like Spinners with a bonnet on, running and crashing through glass pains, the streets all looked like Blade Runner but a bit stripped down ...infact most of the world just looked like L.A 2019 but a bit stripped down, there are so many more instances that it became like where's Wally? But, a blade Runner version!. I know that P.K.Dick wrote the story (We'll rememberfor you whole sale)... But it wasn't the story that was upsetting and like a cheap shot at doing Blade Runner, it was the visuals... yes I accept the notion of a retrofit world... and yes their are some things I haven't SEEN (I have read most of those ideas from desent writers)... but I expected to hear Vangelis and to see a short-haired man with a gun and a trench coat run past. Well that's an hour of my life I won't get back. When will peopele learn if you set your adventure in the near future, in a multicultural urban world with a reluctant and confused protagnist... its got to be good because the mark to reach was set along time ago and this (poor IMHO) effort hardly seems to get off th ground, let alone reach it... and as predicted by many it is unworthy of my further time. I will now forget it!

NeomorphMember1566 XPAug-07-2012 10:46 PMI wouldn't say its a bad review! Infact i would say its alot better than the Film, i was hooked Punx! Anyway... would have been better if they'd recycled the 80s. I don't mean Films like Bladerunner and the original Total Recall, but the ACTUAL 80s, Punks, poncies, Audi Quitro's(sic), Madonna songs, anarchy(sic). Just modern buildings and clothes. Bloody nora, well it is prety late...Nite

The poster was good though!



OvomorphMember0 XPAug-08-2012 2:40 AMII think old movie kept the respective running fashion trends and just put the future plot. But if you see where we are going as of now, we have those skyscraper building, less madonna songs and more justin beiber etc. lol. So I guess compared to old movie, fashion looks much decent in this new movie. (I have not seen whole movie but from I get from the trailers).
Uncertainty is the only certainty there is, and knowing how to live with insecurity is the only security.


OvomorphMember10 XPAug-08-2012 6:44 AMHaven't seen it yet,but my friends are telling me its good.Comparing it to Blade Runner makes me want to see it all the more :)


OvomorphMember0 XPAug-08-2012 7:08 AMThere's a thread about this film not 4 threads below this one. When I started it I tried to edit and add "2012" to it but the edit function is screwy. Regardless, thanks Punx.
