TOTALLY RECALLED: YOUR FAVE 90’S SCI-FI FLICKS

“How could you forget Total Recall?” asked Wired.com reader finwake.

That anguished question, in response to our roundup “Wired’s Favorite Sci-Fi Flicks of All Time — Star Wars and After,” is typical of the hundreds of comments we received. Clearly, the hive mind of the Wired.com readership has near-total recall when it comes to the science fiction movies held dear, deep within its bulging collective brain.

JEFF BRIDGES REVEALS THE SECRET OF HIS TWO TRON LEGACY ROLES

Jeff Bridges likened playing Kevin Flynn in the original 1982 Tron to being a kid again, playing pretend, so it’s appropriate that he literally becomes a kid again in the upcoming 3-D sequel film, Tron Legacy, in which he plays dual roles.

Though the movie’s storyline is closely held, we know that Bridges will play an older version of his original character, Kevin Flynn, as well as a second character whose appearance is that of Bridges 27 years ago.

DIRECTORS SCOTT AND DAVID HILLENBRAND SUCK THE COMEDY OUT OF VAMPIRES WITH ‘TRANSYLMANIA’

Whenever it’s time to make fun of a new movie trend, the studios trot out the unbearably lame SCARY MOVIE-type spoofs that ape better films frame by frame, but with very little wit or originality (EPIC MOVIE/DATE MOVIE anyone?)

For directors Scott and David Hillenbrand, they decided to go a completely different route – to make a vampire movie that was a comedy first and foremost, with none of the SCARY MOVIE spoof trappings. And with TWILIGHT, TRUE BLOOD and THE VAMPIRE DIARIES sucking the life out of the vampire genre, isn’t it about time to suck some comedy out of it too?

It is interesting to see what made the favorite list for the 90’s sci-fi flicks. With so many individual preferences, I think one list just doesn’t cut it. However I do agree with a few listed; such as Dark City, The Fifth Element, Men in Black and Total Recall.  What are your favorites?

Iron Man 2 poster grumpy? Hmmm…I wouldn’t call it that. I’d say a bit more menacing. He looks like he’s ready to kick some ass, which is what a superhero needs to look like.

I’m sure everyone is just as excited to see Tron Legacy as I am. The original was quite groundbreaking and this version sounds like it will surpass it’s predecessor.

If they can make a zombie comedy (Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland) I can’t see why a comedy vampire movie can’t be made. It just has to be done right. What are your thoughts on a vampire comedy, is it pushing the genre too far or is it something it needs?
