Oh and I'm going to get shit for this but Total Recall is the most overrated movie ever. It's awful. Starship Troopers though, that shit rules.
Hey i'm the guy on here that dislikes Drive, that's almost sacrilegious in these here parts. lol
i wouldn't call TR a great movie by any stretch, but it was one of the more entertaining and well made Arnie vehicles amidst a string of awful cash-in movies. It also helps when you're familiar with Verhoeven's knack for subtle cultural satire throughout his accessible films. Robocop was better for that, but this wasn't far behind. It's too bad that they had a chance to make a darker, more serious interpretation of the book with the 2012 movie and failed. That pisses me off a lot more than turning We can remember it for you Wholesale into a visually impressive Summer Blockbuster flick that kept the core elements of the book intact.
I decided to watch The Machinist this morning after an unsuccessful attempt at watching Momento the night before. And for whatever reason, I felt the need to eat my Kellogg's Mini-wheats breakfast as this deliciously grotesque film played. You should've seen that priceless facial expression I made near the beginning of the film where the light glistened on Bale's frail, boney chest while he was in the bed. Eating while watching that was such a foolish mistake on my part.
Was eating lunch with my roommate when I watched that movie and immediately lost my appetite. Thought it was a great movie though.
