Len Wiseman is good at what he does -- and what he does is make mindless action films. Unfortunately, that makes him a poor choice to direct a remake of 'Total Recall,' since what makes the material so great is the fact that it's anything but mindless.
Wisemen is totally uninterested in the very thing that makes 'Total Recall' interesting -- namely its poker-faced presentation of a story with two totally viable interpretations. Is what we're watching really happening? Or is it all a dream? In investigating the nature of reality amidst a barrage of chases and fight scenes, the first 'Total Recall' was a unique pleasure: an action movie with brains and brawn. Wiseman strips away the subtext and ambiguity, puts his head down, and barrels along from one scene to the next.
After 'The Amazing Spider-Man' unleashed about 25 minutes of footage online before release, it seems that Sony - the studio behind it and the upcoming 'Total Recall' remake - have decided that it's better to put out less of their movies. We've now had two clips from 'Total Recall' and the sum total of clippage is about eighty seconds.
'Breaking Bad' is weary of the minefield that is spoilers. So much so that the just-released peak at their new season offers little but footage of its stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul saying that they're currently shooting, but don't want to give anything away. Still, they made a video to get you pumped for the penultimate season.
With Julia Louis-Dreyfus' new show 'Veep' premiering on HBO this Sunday, we thought it would be fun to take a look at the cast of 'Seinfeld' and some of the projects they've been involved in since the show ended in 1998. They haven't always been good (and some have been pretty bad) but it's always good to have them around.
Lucky for us, our favorite neurotic quartet just can't stay off our television screens.
Personally, we'll just be happy when 'Breaking Bad' returns period, especially after the season finale that had us all blown away with its brutality. But as long as 'Breaking Bad' is confirmed to return this summer, it's nice to know just how exactly we'll be getting our weekly dose of vitamin B.
This weekend the first trailer (the teaser trailer) for Len Wiseman's 'Total Recall' is going to premiere. But until that time, we have the teaser for the teaser trailer. The film is an update of Paul Verhoven's classic science fiction film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, but - from the teaser trailer's teaser - it seems all they kept was one prop. Take a look...
Ah, Bryan Cranston. What a glorious, monumental human being. 'Breaking Bad' literally and figuratively blew our faces off with its fourth season finale, the appropriately titled "Face Off," but nothing quite devastated us as much to learn that 'Breaking Bad's' fifth season would be its last. Whether treated as two individual seasons, or two-halves to a fifth, 'Breaking Bad's forthcoming eight-episode runs will unfortunately be its last. But when can we start watching again?
