My favorite all time Arnold Schwarzenegger movies is Total Recall. Granted, the first time I saw it I was a kid and the alien woman with three boobies guaranteed it was a favorite. I have watched the movie many times over the years, and honestly three boobies and the “Two Weeks” scene still sort of make the flick.
I wasn’t sure what to think when I heard Colin Farrell would be taking over the role of Douglas Quaid in the upcoming Total Recall remake. I’m not a big fan of Farrell, I can’t think of a single film he’s been in that I actually liked. The full trailer hit the web over the weekend and honestly, the movie looks pretty good so far:
Judging by the trailer, Len Wiseman’s version has a lot in common with the original 80s classic – especially the Rekall machine and the “If I’m not me then who the hell am I?” line. However, it also differs a great deal. The new movie is said to follow more closely to the Philip K. Dick short story the original was based on called We Can Remember It for You Wholesale than the Schwarzenegger film. Guess we’ll all find out on August 3, 2012 when the remake hits theaters.
