I loved the original, but admit it could have used some tweaking

I fucking hate Hollywood.

(Colin Farrell? :lol: )

I'll see it on the movie channels. If at all.

What's wrong with Colin Farrell?

(Sorry, is he regarded as a serious actor these days? :lol: )

Maybe you guys want to take a look at some of his recent films. He's come a looooong way.

Actually, it's not that I think he's a bad actor. He's been in some interesting films and worked with amazing directors. The thing is, I just don't like to watch him. I mean, looking back on his IMDb page, he's been in a whole lot of interesting things, but I just cringe for some reason. And I'm no longer interested in the Total Recall remake. I might be wrong...

I like watching him. Even at the age he is now he still has the "physicality" element that a young Brad Pitt had.

I don't think I would enjoy it without Arnold.

Oh well, at least news of this remake allowed me to get some movie & dick jibes in at @TheKJA & @DuneNovels. :lol:

Merkin, check out Colin in "In Bruges", excellent black comedy. I also liked him in Intermission.

In Bruges is EXCELLENT. Highly recommended.
I deleted some of your posts because they were derailing the topic and not focusing on the issues asked, and instead going after the authors or their material. That's why. ~ BM

wasn't there a thread about this before ?

cuz I surely remember making some comment about the slutty midget ....


seems like this was another one of those horseshit 80s movie my then teenaged boys
were pawning all my tools for the $6 tickets (or whatever the seemingly outrageous
Mall O' the South in Memphis "mega-cinema" with 10 screens' price was) and getting
hyper over how "radical" it was, until one day, while taking a sick-day to drink, I stumbled
into a theater and saw it - and laughed and laughed, and spilt the bourbon I had poured
into the concession stand's cup of ice ($3, plus tax) and was asked to quiet down or
leave by a skinny twenty-something usher who got his flashlight taken away from him,
and by the time he had retrieved it from beneath the second row's seats where it had
landed after bouncing off the screen, had had a Little Talk With Jesus and decided he
didn't want My Trouble .... this ruckus almost broke the concentration of the one other
man in the theater, who was masturbating furiously under a duster (overcoat, to the
rest of you) and it was late summer in the mid-south ....

I guess now isn't the time to mention that on my Dune Film Fantasy Cast I have Colin Farrell for Shaddam IV...

No, it's never the time to mention Colin Farrell.

Unless he's died.
