    I rented the new version of 'Total Recall'. <*sigh*>

    Who comes up with this garbage (the 'fall')???

    Schwartenegger's version with a Mars-colony is at least plausible, and fun to watch.

    At this time of year, think of the pitfalls of being a snowman.

    Statoil buys 280 000 square km's in West Virginia/Ohio for 590 million USD (Marcellus, dry-gas energy). They're already running things in Three Forks and Bakken, with some stuff coming in 2013 in Eagle Ford.

    Another intersting thing is that they are cooperating with another company designing and building complete factories for subsea processing (separation dry-gas) as the first in the world.

    I purchased it on blu-ray. I purchase most movies with well known actors. Maybe that's why I have 900 movies. Anyway I liked the movie. There are always things that could have been better, but I enjoyed it. The part when they were completely surrounded by cops and his so-called friend was talking to him was not believable. I won't get into details as I don't want to be a spoiler, but I'm sure you know what I mean. I would have to agree with the Fall. I would think that would be an impossibility and would make more sense to go into space and back than create a tunnel as such. I in no way would be able to compare it with the first one though because the only thing I can Totally Recall (pun intended) from it is when Arnold was on the surface without a helmet. I can't remember if his helmet came off or the glass was busted out, but I do remember that god-awful look he had when he was breathing the Mars air. His eyes bugging out was hideous. I suppose I will have to purchase that movie so I can then compare the two. Of course it is kind of difficult to hold up to today's movies with the capabilities that are available to them.

    people too lazy to come up with original material is why we keep seeing rehash after rehash of old movies in the theaters.


    if people want to rehash a movie, pick one of the black and white B-rated Sci-Fi ones from the 50s

    I get confused how original is original. There are lots of stories about humans, so are movies with humans not original?

    Visually it's a superb movie, but the script is godawfully dumb. That's why I rented it to see it first, then decide if it's worth money to get on disc. The original with Arnie's buggy eye freaked me out too, but with the things they had then, it's still surprisingly good.

    Rating of 'new' version:

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1386703/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

    6.3/10

    Of old version:

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0100802/?ref_=fn_al_tt_2

    7.5/10

    Imdb-poster quote:

    Benny, Benny's the Name! he had five kids to feed, and because of this remake they will go hungry.

    There have been many stories taken place on Earth or an Earth like planet. I fear that is not original.

    Well thought about doing this figure the other day and decided to call it Wendy Wombat, I can't say who inspired me to do this, or who it looks like it pure coincidence. LOL!!!
