Open your mind!

So, I'm watching Total Recall. If you haven't watched this movie, you really should. Not just because I'm about to spoil the hell out of it, but because it is totally bad ass. After you've watched Arnie kick the shit out of some mutant Martians, watch the commentary, it is equally awesome, and I'm also about to spoil the shit out of it as well.

So, you're back right? And you watched the commentary? Good, now check this out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N0amCfgnwY8, it's got nothing to do with what I'm about to talk about, but it's friggin' hilarious.

Now, let's assume that the whole movie is pretty much just the brain trip that Rekal sends Quaid on, and as soon as the credits roll he wakes up in their offices. He's just had the most awesome virtual vacation ever, and he's about to head home. To his wife. Who, in his mind, just tried to shoot him in their own home, told him their marriage was a sham, and was killed by the girl of his dreams. That's pretty fucked up right there. This poor bastard is going to second guess everything in his life (remember his best friend tried to kill him in his fantasy vacation too) all because he opted for the bonus package.

Seriously, that's just fucked up.

I always thought a good ending for that movie would have been a montage of a bunch of different people, men and women, young and old, simply saying "... and that's how I saved Mars". But yeah, the whole movie is crazy weird man.
