Total Recall (2012)

I watched it a few months ago, not a horrible movie. Really dig Kate Beckinsdale as a baddie. Having seen the original dozens of times, (probably second only to Mad Max 2) I cringed as soon as his hand rang. Other callbacks were fun, too. Like the "two weeks" woman, human shield man, and, of course, the three breasted hooker. I don't find The Fall any worse than the alien atmosphere generator of the original.

The fx for the gravity transition was excellent, I think.

The dystopiascape though... Who builds like that?

Someone who wants a really cool turbolift chase.

I was thinking more of the hovels built ad-hoc here and there.

Gravity defying to put it mildly.
