Total Recall (1990)

Format: Blu-ray
Venue: Rivendell

The Good: Fantastic story, badass gore effects, and loads of general genre funtimes! Sharon Stone is still hot as the surface of the sun and Michael Ironside is his typical villainous great. It was based on a book by Philip K. Dick and directed by Paul Verhoeven (Robocop).

The Bad: It is a Schwarzenegger film so a certain amount of cheeseball action hero cliches and bad one-liners.

The Weird: If you were going to build a installation (read shopping mall) on Mars and fill it with oxygen-breathing Earthlings, why the fuck would you then install thousands upon thousands of super flimsy windows? Seems a recipe for...exactly what happens.

Rating: 7/10 Atkins
