That aspect of it is really good I agree.
I like how there's no suggestion that girls are worth engaging with on their own merits. No hint that even sex is worth the trouble. The normal thing to do would be to stay at home wanking if it wasn't that women are one of the 12 trials a man must master if he wishes to enter Valhalla.
Rewatched Total Recall last night. The secretary's digital nails jumped out at me this time around. She just taps them with something and they instantly change colour. Also the guy who claims to be from Rekall and tries to trick Arnie offers him a red pill that will "wake him up"...I got incredibly high and watched total recall and can you beat Bobby Flay last night. it was amazing
