Total Recall

Total Recall (2012)

TotalRecall

Starring:
Colin Farrell
Kate Beckinsale
Jessica Biel
Bryan Cranston
Bill Nighy

Review:
Based on the better film with Arnold, this was better than I though it would be. The central idea that there is an elevator through the middle of the earth is preposterous, however there is sufficient adventure and action to keep the story going for an entertaining movie.

 

Lair

Lair by James Herbert

Lair

Rats mutate and take over. People die. Lots of blood. An unlikely hero battles the odds. It may be a formula, but James Herbert is one of the best at this genre.

The Dream Girl

The Dream Girl by Richard F. Myers

DreamGirl

 

Surprisingly racy (for it’s time – 1947) and funny stories about a woman who comes from dream to reality. Some of the portrayals of woman do date the book to its pre-feminist times.
