The remake of Phillip K. Dick’s “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale” (aka Total Recall) provides the show with a bit of a mystery: did we really see a new movie or is it just the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger film with a different cast in place? Why can’t Hollywood make a faithful adaptation of Dick’s works and why do they seem to lend themselves to guilty pleasure, ridiculous action films? We also talk about where our personal “fear” line is when it comes to movie content and how that’s changed over our lives, the Internet’s grudge with NBC’s broadcast of the Olympics, and more! Co-hosts: Tim, Thomas, and (in a very strange way) Owen.
