Total Freakall

Am I freak because I like the movie "Total Recall?" Don't answer that. I don't like many of the Governator's movies. This is pretty much it . "Last Action Hero" is ok just because it's pure cheese. "Last Action" was his worse grossing movie ever at the time it was released and critics slammed it. I rented it when it came out just to see it. I laughed my ass off, but probably not at what the writers thought was funny. I guess "Total Recall" is pure cheese too. It's not really "funny" though (not meant to be anyway). I just get sucked into it. It's like a cheesy version of "The Matrix." I seriously doubt anyone has compared the two and "Matrix" fans would call me a blasphemer. You gotta admit, it deals with some of the same issues, with an over-Austrian accent, lots of slutty women and heavy weaponry.

Besides, it has great Arnold Lines. For example, Sharon Stone (she plays an Agent Smith type, kinda. She was implanted in the false reality as his wife to keep an eye on him): "Honey, I'm your wife!" Arnie: "Consider this a divorce" {shoots the hell out of her}. I think he even said "I'll be back" earlier but I could have imagined it. How much would you pay to hear Arnie shell out cheesy lines? Ok, I wouldn't pay either, but when I flip past it on the Superstation, I stop.

I have to say, it's probably on my top 10 list of movies. It's on my top 20 for sure. Then again, "Dirty Dancing" is on my Top 10 too just because I laugh so hard at that movie. I don't agree with Mike Nelson about "Road House" being the best movie of all time. "Dirty Dancing" is so much better! "Road House" is ok, but come on. Patrick Swayze has never exuded more Swayzeness than in "Dirty Dancing."

PS: Mike Nelson, you need a blog man. I'd read that everyday (I used to read Timmy everyday). If Alton Brown, a chef, can have a kickin' blog you can too! I'll design it and even pay to host the damn thing! I'll even buy more 2 more copies of all three of your books. (Like he would actually care!)
