Meh

Another movie based on a Philip K. Dick short story. I'm a little torn because I loved the original story and it was surprisingly warm and fuzzy (by Philip K. Dick standards anyhow). I also really liked Minority Report, so all adaptations aren't evil. I actually believe that Ben Affleck can act (watch Dogma you doubters), but I'm not sure about what kind of spin they'd have to put on Paycheck to make it translate well. In all honesty, the futuristic feel was the best part of Minority Report and the short isn't that great. Blade Runner was pretty good. I think Total Recall completely sucked ass after trying to watch 5 minutes of it on the Sci-Fi Channel.

I think I'll read the reviews and see what I think about it.
