A Certain Point Of View posted “Total Douchebag” which is about a Huffington Post’s review of Len Wiseman’s remake of 1990′s “Total Recall.” The reviewer noted the film’s plot shared many similarities with AOTC, while trashing AOTC of course. One commenter to the HP piece noted that the movie seemed to visually cop every sf film of the past several years including AOTC.
Paul McDonald posted about the film on my FB wall. Here’s what he had to say:
Just saw it. You know, this would be a good thing to mention at the PAS. Yes, as A New Hope noted, the guy is bashing it, but this reboot has tons of prequel homages/rip-offs. He missed the one where they actually have commando droids courtesy of the CW, and our hero even rips the chest of one opens and shoots it with a blaster/gun, ala Grievous. Shaky plot and shakier physics, but still a fun movie. I know Len Wiseman is a SW fan, but this is one of the only films I know to directly reference the prequels over and over again. I personally think that’s awesome.
