Total Recall Honest Trailer

You know what action movies are missing these days? Swift kicks and punches to the nuts. Thankfully, there are plenty of movies from the past that deliver the kind of breathtaking groin shots that can incapacitate even the strongest man. In the case of Total Recall, that man is Arnold Schwarzenegger, and he takes a couple good shots to the wedding tackle, courtesy of Sharon Stone.

But perhaps more importantly, Total Recall clearly holds the inspiration for a couple of the biggest sci-fi movies of the 1990s and 2000s. The Total Recall Honest Trailer looks back at this 1980s sci-fi classic, and when you break down the plot, it’s hard not to see elements of The Matrix and Avatar. Check it out below. Read More »

Philip K Dick

“Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn’t go away.” – Philip K. Dick

Philip K. Dick remains one of the most influential science fiction writers to ever work in the medium. Writing works both philosophical and strange, the prolific author often wrote about just what it means to be human. With Dick’s work so iconic, it only makes sense that Hollywood (and others) have tried again and again to turn his stories into feature films. Some of the films succeed, but often they do so by altering the original nature of the stories. And they almost always jettison Dick’s prose, which can often leave readers scratching their heads. Dick’s work has also influenced countless other movies, which may not be straight adaptations of his work but are clearly borrowing elements – think The Matrix, Gattaca, Source Code, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind; the list is actually pretty endless.

With Blade Runner 2049 now in theaters, and a new anthology series, Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams, scheduled to hit Amazon sometime next year, it’s time for a primer on the wild world of Philip K. Dick adaptations – the good, the bad, and the films that just don’t make much of an impact at all. .
