TOTAL RECALL (Orange Wednesday)

The Science Fiction Book Club cordially invites the London Movie Meetup Group to join us to see the latest version of the SciFi blockbuster Total Recall.

Please remember: This film has had [terrible reviews].

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED

Its based on a book by Philip K Dick.

Its probably going to be Excellent!*

Bring on an ORANGE WEDNESDAY screening!!!!

YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO.

Euroamerica (formerly the United States and the United Kingdom) and New Shanghai (formerly China) fight for political power in the far dystopian future. A simple factory worker suffering from violent nightmares (Farrell) begins to suspect that he's a spy whose memory and personality were erased and replaced -- though he is unaware which side of the fight he's on and how important his lost memories will be in its outcome.[citation needed] What matters to him the most is that he must team up with a young female freedom fighter (Biel) in order for both of them to change the political system in their own country, Euroamerica, which is currently controlled by Euroamerican President Vilos Cohaagen (Cranston) and his government that rules with extreme austerity.

The Plan

6.00pm - Meet to the right of the main door into the cinema. Please negotiate who is sharing 241 Tickets before you get to the Boxoffice.

6.30pm - See the early evening screening of the film

8.30pm - After the film lets head to [The Rising Sun] or [The Jack Horner] which are both near the cinema for some socialising & banter. It's probably easiest if everyone goes to area to the far left of the Bar.

Where:
Odeon Tottenham Court Road

When:
Cinema: 6:00
Film: 6:30
Pub: 8:30
All times approx

    was ok. spectacular visuals, if plot a bit ropey. Reminded me in places of Fifth Element, Blade Runner, Star War prequels & Bourne.

    Hi all
    due to the studio recently changing the release date I need to change the date we will be seeing it due to a conflicting commitment. I'll be holding off posting the cinema/time until the cinemas post their timetables, which will probably be Friday Aug 31st. Sorry for any inconvenience.

    Please return to what you were doing.

    in truth the original was cheesy but in a nice cheesy sort of way...the challenge is if the remake is even cheesier.....

    This movie is one of those remakes which is not as good as the original 90s version. In other words it was pointless.

    There is some continuing action that keeps one mildly engaged but the story is weak. The Arnie version had a clear and interesting plot with charm and wit remember "Sweetheart, be reasonable. After all, we're married!", "Consider this a divorce". Also the climax was grand and fascinating - the lack of oxygen bug eyed thing.

    Hi all
    please remember if you want to be recognised, post a recognisable picture of yourself. Members who do not post a pic (or those posting pictures of puppies/sunsets/ducks/etc) and complain they couldn't find us, should only do so if they want to be laughed at.

    Final instructions will be issued to you after the cinema posts their time table.


    Please return to what you were doing.
