Total Recall (Original vs Remake)

12 posts in this topic

I realize from what I've read that I may be the only person who says this, but I actually like the new version better.

It looks gritty and somewhat realistic as opposed to cheesy like the Arnold version, and obviously Colin Farrell is a much better actor than Schwarzanegger.

The new total recall was entertaining but it didn't break any grounds nor did it make me want to watch it again. I felt like i got my moneys worth because to me its what total recall would have been if they had our type of CGI back then. plus having the girls with the three boobs helps as well very suckable.

does he pull anything out of his nose?

No. This time it's his hand.

Three tits > two tits.

Gotta go to Mars for it really to be Total Recall.

Plus the original kinda left you thinking, was this the implanted memory? But in the remake, you know right away that it's "real" and not a memory.

Original by a mile... But the new one wasn't horrible.

Yeah, the new one wasn't bad. It just should've been called something besides Total Recall.

They still dropped some hints, even at the end with the "Rekall" billboard, that it might be a dream.

I will grant there were parts of it that could have been better executed, but that's true of the original also.

I liked how they paid homage to the original during the security gate scene.

the fat redheaded lady looked exactly like the one from the original, I got a snicker out of it.

    • I'd love it if someone could do a compare & contrast post on Corey Davis, Zay Jones, Ross and maybe one or two of the other top WR prospects, ranking them on Speed Route running / separation Hands (catch percentage) Durability Fit in our offense For me, Ross is off my board (at least in the 1st round) due to his knees / injury risk.  Davis seems promising but it's hard for me to imagine DG going with him at #8.  Seems like one of other players we are likely to have ranked higher (Thomas, Adams, Fournette, Howard) might be available at #8.  Barnett & Lattimore might be above Davis on our Board and have a pretty high chance of being there at #8... I don't watch much college football at all. (Have enough trouble watching NFL games here in West Africa)  Don't know enough about Zay Jones and any of the other potential round 2 WR prospects....
    • I think Panthers fans would lose their minds if we took Lattimore. But he would be a stud for sure and pairing him with JB24 would be nice.
