Looks like it is going to be crap. I think I will go and watch the original instead.

I think it looks pretty good, but Arnold's movie was still the BOMB!

OK I went and seen the new Total Recall today and it was OK definitely not better than the original! Having Kate Beckinsale in it, with her crew reminded me of Underworld when you see it you'll know what I mean. And they did change up the story somewhat instead of the plot being about Air its about population overcrowding. Some of the scenes were taken right out the the original movie, and the robots looked like the Stormtroopers from the Clone Wars that's exactly what they reminded me of. The future remided me of Blade Runner where everything looked like Chinatown this was the samething. Overall it had some good action scenes but I could have waited for it on DVD.

Don't mean to be a dick, or call anyone out, but people who go to see remakes, reboots, latter day sequels etc. lose all right to trash said phenomenon and the current unoriginality of Hollywood, in my book. As long as you pay em' they're gonna shovel you the same shit, and call it sugar.

Of course if you like remakes and the current state of Hollywood, by all means.... go nuts. I just see a lot of people who bitch about todays crappy output, and yet they are first in line for whatever 80's classic is being ass raped that opening weekend.

This of course pertains only to americans, as the domestic box office gross, and more or less only the takings of opening weekend is what matters to the studios.

WOW! TWC, shit don't hold back Bro! As far as this movie goes I didn't wait in line to see it myself, LOL but I do get your point. I was just curious how much they (Hollywood) were going to change the storyline around! And certain remakes are OK some reboots are Great, ex: Batman trilogy!

I get your point about straight up Remakes, but reboots and 'latter day' sequels can sometimes be very good, like the aforementioned Batman, Star Trek, Casino Royale, X-Men First Class, etc. Sometimes these are lazy studio projects, but sometimes you get writers and directors that actually care. It just depends.

@Daisho

That's cool, and I wasn't gunnin' for you in particular, just to be clear.

But if people could save their curiosity for halfass movies till the dvd release (as you yourself said) that would send those no talent hacks a message. All they care about is the opening weekend box office gross.

You're right yoda, there are some good ones. My problem is with the rampant unoriginality and lack of artistic integrity and vision.
