Under Review: Total Recall

— by ADAM DALE — When it comes to classic genre films, fans can be less than enthusiastic about the idea of a remake. With ostensibly a more faithful interpretation of Philip K. Dick’s 1966 short story “We Can Remember it for You Wholesale” than the 1990 original starring Arnold Sc[...]

Under Review: ‘Fright Night’

— by ADAM POYNTER — The term “remake” has become synonymous with negative feelings and a general groan, but it is usually in regards to beloved source material and has no reflection on the cast or movie itself. What if you could take an outdated film that is regarded as a cul[...]

Review: Horrible Bosses

— by ADAM POYNTER — In my opinion, some of the best recent comedies are those that have a few key ingredients: clever writing, an original idea and also a talented ensemble cast of actors that are allowed to do their own thing. Just let them improvise and run wild with ridiculous concept[...]

Six Clips from ‘Horrible Bosses’

— by ADAM POYNTER — We have all had them, a boss that is either mean or verbally abusive. I’ve had managers that have given me their work to do and I did it happily thinking I was helping them out and gaining experience, and then they took credit for it. Either way, every single [&hell[...]

A Clip from ‘Fright Night’

— by JESSIKA OWENS — Vampires are becoming a tad over-killed these days. Remakes have become entirely overdone in the past decade. So whose idea was it to smash the two together and do a vampire remake? It doesn’t matter because even though vampires and remakes are recycled news, &[...]

Two New Images from ‘Fright Night’

— by ALLISON HIGGINBOTHAM — While it’s easy to bemoan the yearly slew of remakes, it’s just plain hard not to get excited about some of them. Remakes have the wisdom of hindsight and time, and one of the remakes I’m looking forward to is “Fright Night.” Since the film has a bit[...]

Jessica Biel in Talks for ‘Total Recall’ Reboot

— by JOSUE SANCHEZ — I still remember the first time I watched “Total Recall,” starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. It wasn’t at a theaters (I was to young to watch the “R” rated movie), but when it was finally available on video, my friend and I immediately rent[...]

Bryan Cranston Zeroing in on Total Recall

— by SEAN GERSKI — I don’t know if rebooting “Total Recall” — the Arnold Schwarzenegger sci-fi flick from 1990 — is a great idea. I do, however, know that hiring Bryan Cranston to act in anything you are doing is an excellent idea. In the newest incarnation [...]
