Total Recall – Trailer

The official trailer for Total Recall starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, John Cho and Bill Nighy. As the nation states Euromerica and New Shanghai vie for supremacy, a factory worker (Farrell) begins to suspect that he’s a spy, though he is unaware which side of the fight he’s on.

From the original Total Recall with Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 90s they went and remade into a film with Colin Farrel and I really like just based on the trailer, I honestly forgot that this movie was even coming and now I’m excited. It looks like they took a lot of the good elements of the old one and still building an interesting story, remember Sharon Stone was in the original, she did play a great role in it. Schwarzenegger was king of the movies in the 80s and 90s.

Hawaii Five-0 – Fantastic!

One of those crazy anticipated shows of the season and it turns out to be even better then expected. There have been a lot of remakes over the last few years of old shows, and there has been some good buzz for Hawaii Five-0 but there were still some skeptical people. Once I heard the theme song I knew that I would love this show, I remember watching the original on AMC in the states and its a lot better. The remake does justice to the show, the remixed original theme song is very fun, the storyline is good, and they have some very good characters with some old school lines thrown into the mix that you will remember like “Book ’em Dano”. This show is a must see for this season, and the best part its in Hawaii.

Review: The Karate Kid

A lot of remakes have been made recently, and Karate Kid was at the top of my list. I’m a huge fan of Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith has a lot of potential. The story of a kid moving to China from Detroit and having no friends and doesn’t speak Chinese. Jaden plays the role of the kid who gets beat up and learns Kung Fu from Jackie Chan to face his fears and beat everyone. The story is told a different way then the original but I like the route they took, makes it less cheesy and pulls you into the story. I was a bit annoyed with some of the supporting characters, they should have been a little bit more colorful, a little bit more attitude. The relationship between Jackie Chan and Jaden in the movie as Master and Student is great, with the right amount of humor. And the fighting is pretty good, you could tell he went through a lot of training, I don’t want to spoil it for anyone but it was a funny movie to watch, I wanted it to be better but I had high expectations, still a fun movie to watch.

Melrose Place Coming Back

Due to the huge success of the 90210 remake it seems the studios are now thinking about bringing back some other shows, and one which has been green lighted is Melrose Place! I remember watching this show on and off when I was a kid, it was a complex story of relationships which I didn’t get but even as a kid I knew that some of these women were hot. This is when I remember falling for Heather Locklear even though I’m not a blonde type of guy. There were a lot of hot women in this show and nobody realized it back then, things have really changed for the TV industry for the past decade and half. Who even remembers Alyssa Milano on that show, and she was hot back then and ridiculously hot now. Who even knew that Kristin Davis from Sex & The City was originally from Melrose Place. That show had a number of hot women, and the men were only tools of those women, I keep reiterating the fact that they are hot but it still isn’t enough. I wonder which cast they would pick for the remake, because they have to be very mean and scheming as well as good looking just like the original women.
