Total Recall (2012) – Review

2 1/2 Stars

There is a central misconception regarding reboots, it is as if filmmakers are forced to acknowledge hallmarks of the original, while still attempting to expand and position themselves as the better entertainment. This trend continues with the shiny, new update of the Paul Verhoeven/Schwarzenegger sci-fi (semi) classic Total Recall. Director Len Wiseman practices an almost slavish devotion to the touchstones of that 1990 predecessor, after a while I was making a mental checklist of the similarities and differences. Maybe, it is impossible to appreciate this picture without having an affinity with the original? However I think those uninitiated, will find even less to like about this expensive retro fit.

The Break Up (2006)

Box Office Gross: $118,703,275     Adjusted $0

Pushed to the breaking-up point after their latest “why can’t you do this one little thing for me?” argument, art dealer Brooke (Jennifer Aniston) calls it quits with her boyfriend, Gary (Vince Vaughn), who hosts bus tours of Chicago. What follows is a series of remedies, war tactics, overtures and underminings suggested by the former couple’s friends, confidantes and the occasional total stranger. When neither ex is willing to move out of the condo they share, the only solution is to continue living as hostile roommates until somebody caves.
