Total Recall was not as bad as everyone said. It was pastiche, yes. But I had the impression that if it had told its own story (rather than retelling a previous one) it would have seemed more successful. What I mean is very literal: if someone dubbed it into another language using a different script, the same shots and edit would seem much better.
Looper is very good. A clearly and economically presented premise, that is elegantly developed to an unexpected(ly) satisfying conclusion.
Given how rare it is to see even decent science fiction movies, I feel giddy at seeing two that I enjoyed in the same week.
