I can't explain quite why, but I'm genuinely intrigued by and looking forward to this summer's reimagining of TOTAL RECALL

Maybe it's because I'm a big fan of Colin Farrell, maybe because the mystery at the heart of the plot interests me, maybe it's because I enjoy the dirty and stripped down sci-fi asthetic, or maybe because its the only flick of its kind coming out this summer.  I've never much more than passingly ejoyed a Len Wiseman movie in the past, but everything from Farrell's presence to the kick-ass trailer is telling me that I'm going to have a damn good time out when I finally see TOTAL RECALL on August 3rd. 

What say you?

Plot Recap: 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. The line between fantasy and reality gets blurred and the fate of his world hangs in the balance as Quaid discovers his true identity, his true love, and his true fate.

I wonder if Colin will surpass Arnie's record for the most number of nut-shots in a movie? xD

Maybe its just me...

But I'm not really feeling the excitement all that much. The trailer was not bad, it was quite action-packed, but maybe my indifferentness is bacause they stripped the "Real Mars" from the plot, or the fact that the original was such a damn good classic which totally hold to this day besides other much more modern scifi films without losing a single point, or maybe its just that there are far too many exciting films coming this summer. The reimagining is feeling a bit generic "Amnesiac Bourne
But I'm not really feeling the excitement all that much.

The reimagining is feeling a bit generic "Amnesiac Bourne in future" type thriller to me, which can be great if done right, but lets face it, more often than not, its not the case. And no offense to Farrell (I loved him in In Bruges & Minority Report), but he is no Schwarzenegger in his prime, IMO.

I'll gladly eat my own words if I am proven wrong, but till then, I going to be cautiously interested. Much more excited about his SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS, btw.

P.S. That scene of Arnold removing a bug inside him through nasal cavity is one of the most bizarre and painfully funny moment I've seen (maybe I was in school the firsttime I saw it). They HAVE to have that scene with Farrell in this one!
