    I have not seen the new reboot of the old classic.
    Total Recall (the original) is one of my favorite sci-fi movies (my absolute favorite one is Inception)
    and I love Arnold (Terminator two is amazing) so I decided to pass on this one.
    Have you seen it? Is it worth watching?

    Haven't seen it and won't because it stars The Movie Slayer (Colin Farrel).

    Because he's killed every movie he's ever been in. He's just a terrible actor. Just my opinion. I want to make that clear before I offend anyone who likes him.

    And this one is a flashback preceded by Stewie's comment "You're more worthless than Colin Farrell:"

  7. No–he's a terrible action hero. He's actually a really good character actor; he was loads of fun in Horrible Bosses and In Bruges. Crazy Heart, too; he didn't have a big role but he inhabited it well. Seven Psychopaths looks like it's going to be fun.

    He just doesn't do well in big flashy action roles, e.g. S.W.A.T., Alexander, Miami Vice.

    He plays the same guy in every movie. Same cardboard cut-out Irishman. I didn't know that Alexander the Great was Irish.

    I had the exact same thought when I watched it the one and only time.

    He was Bullesye in Daredevil. One of the few good things about that movie... especially his last scene with the fly. :D

    No, no no. He was Colin Farrel playing Alexander the Great playing Bullseye. Or was that the other way around?

    But despite that fact, I do like Daredevil. I own the Director's Cut.

    Shall we start a Colin Farrell thread? :rolleyes: Though I will note that I really, really dislike American or out-of-place accents in historical films. It's done more than you'd think. It's annoying. I'm aware that I'm also off-topic. I haven't seen Total Recall yet.

    I agree with you one hundred percent. It's very annoying.
