'Total Recall,' 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days,' 'Killer Joe' reviewed by Mr. Moviefone
This week at the movies, a wimpy kid has a new adventure and Matthew McConaughey is getting dirty... again.
But first, Colin Farrell takes over for Arnold Schwarzenegger in the reboot of "Total Recall." This remake of the cult sci-fi classic stars Farrell as a bored factory worker looking for a new thrill. So he heads to Rekall, and the company plants new memories in his mind. But as things go haywire and the body count rises the question is, is it real or is it recall?
The Reel Deal: Oh it's real alright. Really long, really loud, really relentless and, unless you're a 17-year-old sci-fi nerd, "Total Recall" is a movie that's easy to forget. I'm out.
For the tweens this weekend, there's "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days." The popular character of the wimpy kid series is back in the third installment and this time he's spending his summer working at a country club and getting into mischief.
The Reel Deal: It's the dog days alright. I'm out.
Also in theaters is the dramedy "Celeste and Jesse Forever" starring Rashida Jones and Andy Samberg as high school sweethearts who married young and now, in their 30s, realize they're growing apart. And in the NC-17 rated dark comedy "Killer Joe" Matthew McConaughey plays a Texas cop who moonlights as a hit man.
