    Every Arnold movie they tried to remake was a flop, from Conan to everything else. Why would they even try to remake total recall without 1/2 of it's plot/cast of characters and details?

    Why oh why.

    I agree. Why do they have to remake every halfway decent movie these days... Come up with an original idea!

    Also, how are you gonna switch in Colin Farrell for Arnold... might as well get Justin Bieber

    Total Recall was a classic.

    I don't know, so they could make people specify either the good one or the shit one when referencing Total Recall.

    I imagine the TS is talking about the recent remake, which is total dogshit, imo.

    Basically, like the above poster said, it is all about milking every last cent out of the moviegoers.

    Call me crazy, but I liked Running Man more than Total Recall.

    Having seen it but I'm guessing it was just an excuse for another broad with three tits

    agree, have no idea why.

    Totall Recall remake was very disappointing.

    It lacked the fun and significance of the first

    It was kinda fun, though the last 20 minutes sucked. I can watch Jessica Biel read the phonebook though. Ahnold TR is a classic of course. Great movie.

    They should have made a prequel or sequel instead.

    I agree, I didn't mean that Total Recall isn't a classic... I have it on Blueray. I meant that more in a general sense, talking about how they've been redoing lame movies like Judge Dredd. Also, I wouldn't mind if the remake was good but it seems like they are never as good as the original. Some things are better left alone...

    Bingo. No remake should have been made.

    Mostly it's Hollywood's general lack of creativity, deciding to remake every fucking film that ever made a profit, but also that the original veered away from Philip K Dick's story.

    They weren't remaking Judge Dredd as such. They were trying to do a proper adaptation of the comic. Dredd himself never removes his helmet (although other clones do), nor does he have romantic interest.
