From her 1993 film debut in "Much Ado About Nothing" through to the just-released "The Golden Bowl," British actress Kate Beckinsale has amassed a diverse list of credits, a stack of good reviews--and a much lower profile than many of her contemporaries on either side of the Atlantic. Well, that's about to be blown out of the water.

Like a drug that starts with a rush and ends with a headache,"Total Recall"is too much of a good thing. Though this film shares the same title as the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, 2012's "Total Recall" is not exactly a remake or even a reboot. Both films were inspired by the playfulPhilip K. Dick short story "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale," and some things are carried over from the first film to this one. But as directed by Len Wiseman from a screenplay and screen story credited to five different writers, this "Total Recall" plays more like a pop-culture mash-up.

MOVIES Before Wes Anderson's films examined the preppy-adjacent struggles of upper middle class young people, Whit Stillman walked a similar beat in '80s with witty films such as "Barcelona," "Metropolitan" and the third of his self-described "Doomed Bourgeois in Love" trilogy, "Last Days of Disco," which screens at the Cinefamily with the writer-director on hand. Chloe Sevigny, Kate Beckinsale and bone-dry scene-stealer Chris Eigeman star in an unironic, funny and even moving depiction of coming of age in the privileged class while sparing the easy, '70s cliches.

This 1996 release is a celebrated parody of Gothic romance and solemn rural fiction. Its self-confident heroine Flora Poste (Kate Beckinsale, pictured) fancies herself a potential novelist, stating blithely that by the time she's 50, "I would like to write a novel as good as 'Persuasion.'

"Underworld: Awakening" begins with a tidy, three-minute wrap of the series' first two movies (the third, a 2009 prequel minus star Kate Beckinsale doesn't figure into the equation) before revealing the current grim state of affairs for its clashing vampires and werewolves. Humans, at least those oblivious to the charms of the "Twilight" movies, have decided to stop killing each other and focus on eradicating creatures possessing fangs.
