f'ing really? does this movie have to be remade? the original is perfect as it is. i'm not opposed to a new movie set in the Total Recall universe, but a complete reboot seems unnecessary.
"All authority of any kind, especially in the field of thought and understanding, is destructive and evil. Leaders destroy the followers and the followers destroy the leaders. You have to be your own teacher and your own disciple. You have to question everything that man has accepted as valuable, as necessary."
I'd rather see originality sure, bit if they want to throw their bucks against it and make a remake then I'm not gonna stop them. I don't understand why people hate remakes being made so much. It's not like it erases the original from the planet, nor does it mean you -have- to watch it in the first place.
They already remade The Karate Kid so fuck it all!!
FUCK IT ALL TO HELL
Some of them just baffle me. Remaking Conan.. remaking Masters of the Universe.. etc and so on. I understand the desire for a revamp, but props to the classics. I prefer when things are more like sequels/prequels than remakes.

Remakes generally don't bother me at all. If the first movie was good then it has been my experience that I can rely on the remake to not totally suck.
There are some movies that are sacred cows "Gone With the Wind", "The Maltese Falcon", "Chinatown", and "A Clockwork Orange", "The Empire Strikes Back" and a few other five star classics would come to mind.
Willywonka/Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was a close call but I thought the remake was decent enough to be given a pass as a "tribute movie".

If it's a remake of Total Recall then I don't care about it. If it's a new version of We Can Remember It for You Wholesale, then I'm all for it. Too bad Phil couldn't actually make money while he was alive.
