I was listening to the Minions of the Monster Master the other day (an actual play podcast covering several different systems, definitely suggest checking them out) and they happened to mention a new movie coming out that's a remake of an old favorite. The first quest that came to my mind; Why?
Originally released in 1990, Total Recall starred Arnold Schwarzenegger and was directed by Paul Verhoeven... like anyone didn't know these things. To me Total Recall is one of the signature Schwarzenegger films along with Terminator and Predator. Is it a great movie? In its own way, yes but why remake it? It just didn't really make any sense to me.
Then I saw the trailer for the new movie.
A lot of things have changed (no more trip to Mars, the addition of flying cars) but the basic story line seems to be pretty much the same. Even so this looks like it will be one wild ride that I can't wait to check out. Until next time...
