Apartment Parties & Kate Beckinsale & A Baby Brother Emergency?

There was more to this dream than I can remember now, it took place over the course of several days or more, and the dream involved me coming to & from a fictional multi-story apartment where I lived.

I lived on an upper floor of this apartment, the apartment was in the style of a hotel where you had to go inside the building to get to your apartment room, and one day or even or night I had a party at my apartment.

Total Recall (2012 Film)

What is it?

The 2012 American science fiction action film Total Recall.

What is it about?

This is how Metacritic describes this movie:

“Total Recall” is an action thriller about reality and memory, inspired anew by the famous short story “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale” by Philip K. Dick.

Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories.

For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid, even though he’s got a beautiful wife who he loves, the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life – real memories of life as a super-spy might be just what he needs.

But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man.

Finding himself on the run from the police – controlled by Chancellor Cohaagen, the leader of the free world – Quaid teams up with a rebel fighter to find the head of the underground resistance and stop Cohaagen.

The line between fantasy and reality gets blurred and the fate of his world hangs in the balance as Quaid discovers his true identity, his true love, and his true fate. (Columbia Pictures)

My Thoughts

I think that I saw this movie in a movie theater back when it came out in 2012, and maybe my brother GC and/or one or more of my brothers watched it with me.

I have not seen the original Total Recall yet unfortunately, and so I had nothing to compare this movie to.

Critics did not like it, but I did not hate it and I thought that this movie was okay.

Colin Farrell did an okay job, I liked Kate Beckinsale’s performance and her character, and this movie had a lot of action.

The end,

Underworld (2003 Film)

What is it?

The 2003 action horror film Underworld.

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:

A young man who has pledged his life to helping others finds himself in a pitched battle between two gangs of supernatural villains in this blend of horror story and action thriller.

Michael Corvin (Scott Speedman) is a medical student who is heading home after a long day of school and work when he unexpectedly finds himself in the middle of what appears to be a rumble between two well turned-out street gangs.

What Michael doesn’t know is he has witnessed a skirmish between two deadly underground communities, unknown to the mortal world, who are battling for supremacy — the Death Dealers, a tribe of vampires, and the Lycans, a band of werewolves.

Selene (Kate Beckinsale) is a leading member of the Death Dealers who hears through the grapevine that the Lycans have plans to capture the aspiring doctor who witnessed their battle.

Certain something is in the air, Selene begins following Michael around the city, and she finds herself growing emotionally attached to him.

As Selene becomes more attracted to Michael, she becomes more convinced that the Lycans are planning a major attack against the Death Dealers, although vampire kingpin Kraven (Shane Brolly) is certain she’s crediting the Lycans with more intelligence than they can muster.

As Selene shadows Michael, she finds herself wanting to protect him, but her longing becomes a handicap when he’s attacked by Lucian (Michael Sheen), the leader of the werewolf community, and the man she wants to save has now become a sworn enemy.

Underworld was the first feature film from music video director Len Wiseman.

My Thoughts

This is probably my favorite Underworld movie so far, the Underworld movies are a guilty pleasure of mine I guess, it was my former male classmate DH who first got me watching this franchise years ago back when it first started.

Back when this movie came out we went to watch this movie in a movie theater, and we both watched the second (Underworld: Evolution) and third (Underworld: Rise Of The Lycans) movies in the franchise at movie theaters when they came out.

So going to watch Underworld movies in a movie theater is a tradition now I guess, and I have seen all of the Underworld movies in a movie theater so far.

I like the visuals of the Underworld movies with the color palette et cetera that just works, I like some of the acting and accents, I like Kate Beckinsale’s performances, and I like how vampires and lycans are portrayed compared to many other movies et cetera.

The end,
