Total Recall

Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories. For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell), even though he’s got a beautiful wife (Kate Beckinsale) who he loves, the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life – real memories of life as a super-spy might be just what he needs. But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man. Finding himself on the run from the police – controlled by Chancellor Cohaagen (Bryan Cranston), the leader of the free world – Quaid teams up with a rebel fighter (Jessica Biel) to find the head of the underground resistance (Bill Nighy) and stop Cohaagen. — (C) Sony

Scott’s Take

When we can’t think of any new ideas, what is it that we do? We remake the old ones. Did Total Recall need to be redone? Advanced word on Total Recall is that it isn’t that good. I’m hoping to be entertained. Get your ass to Mars!

Steve’s Take

The remakes will rarely be better than the original. That being said – go out and see Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale, eh?

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days

During his summer vacation, “Wimpy Kid” Greg Heffley, the hero of the phenomenally successful book series, hatches a plan to pretend he has a job at a ritzy country club – which fails to keep him away from the season’s dog days, including embarrassing mishaps at a public pool and a camping trip that goes horribly wrong. — (C) 20th Century Fox

Scott’s Take

Here’s one for the kiddies. Not much to say here. We’ve been there. Done that. But…it’s something safe to take our kids to see.  Enjoy!

Steve’s Take

Personally, I’m tired of hearing about these movies and the books. I guess it is alright if you have kids in the target age group, but that’s all.

Next Week

That’s all for this week.  Next week we have The Bourne Legacy, The Campaign, Hope Springs, and The Awakening. Have a great weekend everyone!
