FOR THOSE WHO RECALL IT, the ORIGINAL VERSION of THIS MATERIAL WAS FAIRLY GOOD -- BUT HARDLY DESERVING (or DEMANDING) a REMAKE. 

BUT with HOLLYWOOD's CURRENT AVERSION to ALL THINGS ORIGINAL, HERE's THAT REMAKE NO ONE WAS ASKING FOR! 

IT STARS 2004 WORST ACTOR NOMINEE COLIN FARRELL, MULTI-TIME RAZZIE® NOMINEE JESSICA BIEL and PEARL HARBOR SURVIVOR (and FELLOW/FEMALE RAZZIE® NOMINEE) KATE BECKINSALE. IT HAS FIVE NAMES on ITS SCREENPLAY, and HAS APPARENTLY BEEN SITTING on a SHELF in a VAULT SOMEWHERE for SEVERAL MONTHS. 

ALL of THIS, COMBINED with THIS FILM's DISMAL ROTTEN TOMATOES RATING on the EVE of ITS RELEASE, CLEARLY INDICATE THAT TOTAL RECALL (aka THE TOTALLY UN-NECESSARY REMAKE) IS LIKELY to BE "ONE of OURS"... 

BUT WE'RE GATHERED HERE to HEAR YOUR TAKE on THIS, SO...  

HAVE AT IT! 


P.S. IF YOU WANNA CHECK OUT OUR FOTO FUNNY on THIS ONE, HERE's the LINK for THAT...

I'm curious about this. Could Kate Beckinsale be considered Worst Actress for the film, even though she's really playing the villain?
 
She was already in Contraband and Underworld 4 as the main co-star/main star, so why not?
Elizabeth Hartman and Judith Barsi are more talented and beautiful than Scarlett Johansson and Chloe Grace Moretz. Fact.

Apparantly, her role in this is bigger than Sharon Stone's in the original. Probably because she's married to the director. So a Worst Actress nod for Beckinsale isn't out of the picture.
 
Also, has anyone ever watched the original with the commentary on? It's hilarious! Arnold really enjoys watching his movies and it shows.

The other day I went to see THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN (no, it shouldn't be nominated for any Razzies). Anyway, they showed the trailer for this, and I wanted to pay full attention to see if there were any noticeable improvements from the first version. I couldn't because I was totally shocked by the fact that they revealed most of the plot twists! It was like they expect people to remember the first one. If so, why did they remake it?

TO MAKE MONEY, OF COURSE!!!
 
Oiram: There's plenty of other contenders for Worst Actress, but Kate Beckinsale might still have a shot with the combination of Contraband, Underworld: Awakening and Total Remak-I mean Recall.

oiram: Sorry, just wanted to see your reaction. Now, back on topic. I bet Farrell and the rest of the cast and crew are laughing their way to the bank.

I'm still looking forward to the film even with the negative reviews. I saw the original around last month for the first time and enjoyed it immensely. It seems this one is much more serious, which should be enough for a different experience.

Well, I'd go and see Wimpy Kid 3 (if it wasn't for the September release here in Australia, goddammit!) rather than Total Rema-I mean Recall.

Sorry, but I've already heard that joke a bunch of times. And not just on this Forum.

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: My favorite headline/joke this morning was in The Orange County Register: WHO ORDERED THE TOTAL REHASH?!?

By the way, I read that this version doesn't take place on Mars, and yet, they still show the girl with 3 breasts.

R.T. (around 30%): "While it boasts some impressive action sequences, it lacks the intricate plotting, wry humor, and fleshed out characters that made the original a sci-fi classic".

Jeff Beck gave it a 2/4.

Vits, the trailer showed the three boobed lady. When a trailer shows something, it's fair game, and doesn't need a "spoiler whiteout."  

As for why she's still here, it was one of the iconic scenes from the first one. In the commentary track I mentioned a few posts above, that's all Ah-nuld seems to talk about when Paul Verhoeven isn't saying "izznit?". The fact that they had to put the three boobed lady shows how serious they were about adapting the original story. I wouldn't mention this except that they said they wanted this to be more faithful.
