    I LOVED the original, probably watched it 10 times over the years, and after watching the trailers for this remake, I'm not confident it's going in a direction that will be as satisfying ........

    Still, I do want to go see it.

    I really hope that they have an alien with at least three boobs in this one too!

    The remake is only PG-13? Does this mean the three-boobed hooker only tells but doesn't show?

    Yeah, she's in the trailer. But like i said, it's PG-motherfucking-13.

    Oh well, the Judge Dredd remake looks more promising. I long for an ultra-violent action picture.

    And as much as you guys are preserving the memory of the 1990 Paul Verhoeven classic, which I can appreciate, I'm disappointed that no one responded to the "Two weeks" reference.

    I thought the original implementation was cheesy, although I enjoyed the concept.

    I didn't think the trailer looked bad, I just didn't see anything that leaped out to me. Reminded me too much of Minority Report, though.

    Today this city belongs to the Batman.

    The flying cars were cool, but they always are. And I can't stand the needless use of slow-motion bullet-time fight scenes. It's so 1999.

    I think the 90's cheese is the best thing about Total Recall, you just can't bring that back. Minority Report is like the only movie that I've seen that actually closely resembles Philip K Dick source material, though the look was a little too polished. I'd would welcome getting to the source with Total Recall, but I heard they were intending it as a remake of the movie, not as another attempt at the story. And ,anyway, it's been a while since I read it.. I'm not sure if you even want to attempt to be faithful to it. I may have to take a second look.

    This will probably be the last movie I see in the theaters this summer.
