    The problem with the theory Quaid is really experiencing a memory implant at Recall, is we often see other POV than Quaid. For example the scene with Cohaagen yelling at Ricter shouldn't be in the movie since it couldn't possibly be part of the implant.

    The movie should have been edited so that up until Quaid goes to Recall we see several POV, but after that moment only Quaids POV is shown.

    It could be Quaid's mind extrapolating what he believed was happening outside his view. When we dream, our p.o.v. is rarely consistent.

    If this release is only slightly improved over the earlier blu-ray release - it must still be pretty pathetic, because the first release of "Total Recall" on blu-ray is the worst piece of high def garbage I have ever seen.
    Another site has reviewed the British "Ultimate Rekall" edition and handed out a 5 of 5 for the PQ. Is that the same video used in this USA release?

    I believe Studio Canal, which holds distributing rights in Europe, is using the same new remaster as Lionsgate, but handing out a reference quality score seems like a huge stretch of the imagination.

    Hey E, I have to ask...

    So I had the original Terminator 2 Blu-Ray, then I bought the SkyNet Edition. While the quality was remarkably better, the disc took forever to load, and I pretty much only watch it on my PS3. I still use the original release if I am watching it with my standalone player, as the SkyNet Edition takes like 5-10 minutes to load on it.

    My question is if the Mind Blowing Edition of Total Recall is plagued by the same long load times as the SkyNet Edition of T2 was.

    I used my OPPO to watch the movie, but I'll try on the PS3 in a bit and get back to you.

    @gravis,

    It took just under a minute to load. By chance, when was the last time you deleted the BD Data Utility folder and emptied the Shared Cache Data folder as well? The folder on my PS3 is empty, and I'm wondering if that might have something to do with slow load time.

    The slow load time on the T2 Skynet Edition mostly has to do with the way Lionsgate authored the BD-LIVE and Java content on that disc. T2, take 2, is kind of a "special" release on the BD format... because of the truly horrendous awfulness in its menus and bonus feature implementation. I know, who'da thought--a version of T2 with a needlessly complex menu and overly elaborate way to access extras? Never had to deal with that before... except on basically every home video release of the film!

    But seriously, I can't imagine Total Recall will have the same issues. Is it even BD-LIVE enabled?

    Also:


    And:


    I love Total Recall. And, actually, most Verhoeven movies, in point of fact. Even some of the bad (or would that be "worse") ones.

    Never seen this movie. Hated how they put it on Mars when the original story was no Earth.
