I watcged the remake yesterday, it was intresting and Entertaninng at the same time, i do love it how its Earth in 3 locations, Shanghai Britain and the Ruins of Britain so i say watch the Remake Folks i really do i enjoy it.
I remember watching this movie as a kid and getting creeped out at the eye popping seizuring barbaque hamster moments in the extreme environment of Mars/space. Course I didn't pay much attention to the rest of the movie at the time.
Those creeped me out too. You know the funny thing is that's not exactly what could happen if you were exposed to Mars atmosphere. As I've heard Mars does have a very thin atmosphere which consists of carbon dioxide. You would die of course, but not from decompression. It would be choking and extreme heat conditions.
I know what people are thinking, Its had a good story it has some good Chacters, the Locations are really good, and of course it may be a Arnold movie it dose have over the top moments. But it would like to see the new Version with Colin Farrel and see if it has the wider Reconition to the old version.
and Marobot tell the Critic their should be a Old vs New Of Total Recall 1990 vs 2012.
I saw that movie for a college class (it was about Mars in fiction) and loved it. So did my dad, apparently. He saw it in theatres in 1990 and my mum was not happy about it when she found out there was a mutant with three tits in it! Don't worry, they're still married.
The idea of The Nostalgia Critic reviewing this movie is especially funny since The Angry Video Game Nerd reviewed the NES game of the movie recently, along with several other Schwarzenegger NES games.
