The Big Movie Weekend

Posted by David Leslie on August 4, 2012

This was a big movie weekend:
TDKR = Saw it on the Imax which is worth the up charge. There is an emotional wallop you just don’t get with other superhero movies here. Yet there are some unusually big plot holes for a Nolan Bros script that will nag at you when you get over that wallop.

The biggest is in the third act…that’s all I’ll say except that this is the first time I’ve seen an almost 3 hour movie and thought “It needed another hour..”

Total Recall = Better than expected aka better than Arnold’s. Worth catching on the big screen with some nice stunts and effects. Still would have liked for to be more like PKD’s vision for Quaid.
