(Hero fights villain!)
(Villain on the point of defeating hero!)
(Villain says something villainous, suggesting the hero's hopeless demise.)
(Hero does something that surprises the villain, killing him gruesomely and definitively.)
(Insert hero saying a bad pun!)
The real question is whether they'll explicitly reveal at the end that the whole thing was an adventure dream/memory, or merely make it extremely obvious without actually showing the protagonist wake up at the end.
(I do wish the 1990 Total Recall had a final scene of Schwarzenegger getting up from the machine, and walking--dazed, in the rain--home to Sharon Stone and his mundane life.)
Well, there's still plenty of Phillip Dick movies yet to be made. I'm sure a fair number of Metafilterians could name a specific book they're waiting for Hollywood to turn in a (respectful) interpretation of. Radio Free Albemuth? Three Stigmata...?
1982 was a damn good year for movies.
