It Is Weird...


... that I haven't watched the new trailer for
 the Total Recall remake yet because I'm afraid of it, right?

Afraid! I have such mixed feelings towards it. On the one hand I love Colin Farrell and I can watch him in anything, and the footage that they showed from the movie at NY ComicCon last year was pretty kick ass. On the other hand, I love, like loooove, Paul Verhoeven's movie (Here's a list I did back when the remake news first surfaced of some reasons why I looove it) and a remake seems generally useless. God they're remaking all of Verhoeven's movies - this and Robocop and Starship Troopers - and I just know they're going to wipe clean all that Verhoeven brought that made these things interesting in the first place - the sleaze, the love of the ridiculous, the attitude. The questionable morality. What's next, a G-rated Showgirls? (The G is for g-string!) 

Anyway I am torn. I mean, Len Wiseman is no Paul Verhoeven. (Understatement.) But all the articles about this new trailer make mention of the three-titted hooker! Is she in it? Or merely alluded to? And it panics me - I want more three-titted hooker (of course I do!) but maybe they have ruined her? Panic, it panics me. It's weird! I know. I am seeking medical attention, for my brain. Anyway here is the trailer. Which I have not watched. Because I am so fucking weird, you guys.

Somebody tell me what to do, please. And just because here are a couple of shots on Colin Farrell in simultaneously clingy yet falling off pajama pants on the set of his next movie Dead Man Down (via) here in New York City the other day. I keep looking for more picture of Dominic Cooper and his purple underpants on the set but no more have shown themselves, alas.

I saw the trailer last night and it looks a lot closer to the Philip K. Dick short story than Verhoeven's movie. I can't wait to see it.

I watched the trailer and it looks good. I like that it looks completely different from the original (which I loved) because I feel like I won't running a comparison in my head the whole time.

They're remaking Starship Troopers? why? WHY?! WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!?!?!?
The only reason that movie was any good was because it was crappy and silly and had pretty people pretending to be tough and/or smart. It's just stupid to remake cult classics. STOOPID!

I don't know why, but I have faith in The Beckinsale.
She hooked me so long ago I have to carry on.

Colin Farrell and Michael Fassbender are both Irish and they both have huge floppy dicks. Is that a coincidence or is that just a thing with Irish men?
