Total Recall

(PG-13) ★★★☆☆

Original this thing is not. While director Len Wiseman’s futuristic film is more hectic than inspired, it certainly moves. Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell) lives a decent life with his wife Lori (Kate Beckinsale). Restless, he visits a dream factory for a memory-implant vacation, which doesn’t go well. Chaos, hover car chases, confused identity and reality ensue. Quaid spends much of the film on the run or surviving ridiculous falls. It’s great visually, but a little too predictable, even for a remake.

In The Cure for Everything: Untangling Twisted Messages about Health, Fitness and Happiness (Beacon Press, $25), health policy and fitness expert Timothy Caulfield explores and debunks research, crazes and advertising messages. He reveals why exercise, although critical for good health, is not the best way to lose weight, and that diet is 80 to 90 percent of the weight-loss equation. Most of us eat far too much, and don’t exercise at an intensity that’s high enough to actually increase our fitness level.
