If you had to be trapped inside a movie for 5 days, which movie would you pick?
Being trapped inside a movie for 5 days would allow me to live my fantasy life and still come back to real life. So I would choose a movie that allows me to try different things for 5 days. It is very difficult to pick the right movie as I have so many favorite movies. Since I like sci-fi a lot, my pick is “Total Recall” with Arnold Schwarzenegger (1990 movie). The movie is a non-stop action, thriller movie that has a lot of characters, scenes, and scenarios which means I would never run out of things to do in 5 days.
The synopsis of the movie is that Douglas Quaid (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is a construction worker in the distant future. He is happily married to a woman named Lori (Sharon Stone), but is dissatisfied with his place in life. He also has a recurring nightmare about being on Mars with a beautiful woman who is not his wife. After Quaid goes to a company that implants fake memories of ideal vacations called Rekall, all hell breaks loose. Quaid loses sight of reality and everyone around him seems to be trying to kill him as he remembers things erased from him. He seems to fight people who are trying to kill him all through the movie but he finally wins in the end, saving Mars And the resistance fighters by turning on the old oxygen generation plant for the planet and providing the atmosphere to live in Mars. Here is a movie within a movie, what is real and not real. Who is with you or against you. It is a thrill a minute and totally mindless danger at every turn. I could be on earth, Mars, life, a dream, alternate reality, and trying to survive in all of them. Not for the faint of heart but thrilling nevertheless. A thrill at every turn while not sure what is real and what is not.
At the end, the hero saves the day and all is right with the world. I get to travel a lot, see two worlds, go to the future, experience future technology, and save a planet and the people in the end.
What is your movie and why??
