phillip k. dick fans and the movie "next"

posted 5/1/2007 12:48:23 AM by: timothy

if you're a phillip k. dick fan, don't bother with this one, unfortunately.

it will probably just piss you off.

nicolas cage, an actor i attempt to avoid, is surprisingly less annoying than normal in this film. however, the screenplay is weak.

this is no "blade runner" or "a scanner darkly" or "total recall" which at least attempt to convey the intent of his writing -- instead, this is "paycheck".

as an aside note, there was a canadian series called "total recall 2070" which i would like to see. it doesn't appear to be available anywhere. i heard that you can get it on joost but only if you are outside the united states or canada. if you know anything about this series, could you please let me know?
