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. Picking the right movie makes this very difficult as I have so many favorite movies. Since I like sci-fi a lot, my pick is “Total Recall” with Arnold Schwarzenegger (1990 movie).
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 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 finally wins by saving Mars & the resistance fighters by turning on the oxygen generation for the planet. 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 would 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.
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, and save people in the end.
What is your movie??
