    This is frustrating that another Philip K Dick story is turned into a mediocre movie. Sounds like this one is at least better than Paycheck but this ain't no Bladerunner.

    Best part is Hollywood will use this as an excuse to pass up sci-fi movie ideas.

    I finally watched the original on Blu-Ray (Mind Bending Edition of course), and it definitely had the awesome corny one-liners.

    "Consider this our divorce."
    "SCREW YOOOOU!!"

    :awe:

    I loved it when Arnold's head gets to expand like a balloon.

    Even the plot in this one was horrible, not to speak of some of the worst acting by Colin Farell ever. A Total Waste of time is what it was.

    Ever hear of porn?

    I hear some of the newer films resemble older ones.

    I can't stand Schwarzeneggar, but the original film was decent as I recall.

    Lot of remakes fall short - look at 'Planet of the Apes'. Mixed feeling on Star Trek.

    Movie remakes don't stir my primal instincts.

    What actor has gotten more chances with less talent than collin ferrel? Has he ever starred in a good movie?

    Rise of the Planet of the Apes was not a remake.

    Old school Arnold got close to zero acting talent but at least he had a distinct charm and his movies are made with real sets instead of overshiny obviously fake CGI nonsense.

    It's just a bunch of CGI chase scenes. The changes they made were really stupid, and it's inferior to the original.

    Bladerunner sucked ass. I'm still stunned at everybody's love for it.
