100 Word Review – While You Were Sleeping (1995)

sandra bullock while you were sleeping

Sandra Bullock (The Heat, Miss Congeniality, Speed) at her absolute finest in this classic 1990s Rom Com.

Lucy (Bullock) sells tickets at a train station, when a handsom stranger (Peter Gallagher) falls onto the tracks and she rescues him. Mistaken by his family for his fiancé, comedy, romance and drama ensue.

Bill Pullman (Independence Day) co-stars along with some other familiar 1990s faces. Do not let the fact it was directed by Jon Turteltaub (of National Treasure fame) put you off. It’s a wonderful film, nominated for a Golden Globe among other awards, that will leave you feeling warm inside.

100 Word Review – Total Recall (1990) 

Based on Philip K Dick’s story, We Remember It For You Wholesale, this is Arnie at the very peak of his brilliance. 

Douglas Quaid (Arnold Schwarzenegger) can’t afford to go to Mars, but he can afford to have an adventure implanted into his memory of being a spy on Mars. But is it really a false memory? Why are people trying to kill him. He must get to Mars!

Full of the paranoia typical of Dick, and the explosions and shouting you get in every Arnie flick, all tied together by the satirical vision of director Paul Verhoeven (Starship Troopers).
