Day 352

movie: Total Recall (remake)
starring: Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale
genre: Sci-fi, Action
year: 2012
format: Shaw Video On Demand

plot: A factory worker has a recurring dream that he is a spy, and goes to a place that can alter dreams and memories, only to find out that his dreams are not just dreams.

This is based on the 1990 movie which was based on the book "We Can Remember It for you Wholesale" by Philip K. Dick

I've never seen the original 1990 version, so I can't compare the two. Which might be good for me, given I really liked the remake.  Farrell plays the lead character of Quaid as clueless but does it without coming across as boring. Beckinsale makes the movie.  She might have started off doing romantic roles but she owns the action genre now.

what do i think i learned from this film?
Sometimes our minds are not what they seem. Follow your instincts over everything else.
