    Default Total Recall remake (2012)

    http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=53284

    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.

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.

    Agreed.
    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".
    I redact everything I have written or will write on this forum prior to, subsequent with and or after the fact of its writing. For entertainment purposes only and not to be taken seriously nor literally.

    I liked the scene with the fly in the new karate kid movie.

    That pretty much sumarizes the movie in in contrast to the original.

    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.

    I originally read this thread title as "Total Recall Mistake". I see that my initial reading wasn't too far from the truth.

    I knew this was happening like three years ago. And I just didn't wanna believe it.

    Open your mind.

    I'd like to see what they do with it before I pass judgement.
