Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

This science fiction blockbuster from 1990 began its production life as a very different movie than the one that was released. An adaptation of the Philip K. Dick short story "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale," Total Recall was originally conceived of with Richard Dreyfuss starring as a Walter Mitty-like character who experiences a variety of artificially induced fantasies. The movie we know is a mega-budget action epic set on Mars. Arnold Schwarzenegger plays a normal working man who discovers that his entire reality has been invented to conceal a plot of planetary domination. Oscar-winning special effects and violent action propel the twisting plot, in which Arnold manipulates his manipulators in a world of dazzling high technology. Director Paul Verhoeven (Robocop) indulges his usual penchant for gratuitous bloodshed, but the movie has enough cleverness to rise above its excesses. --Jeff Shannon

By Dr. Joseph Lee #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
There are two versions of Total Recall (blu ray): The Mind-Bending Edition with one disc, and the Ultimate Rekall Edition (blu ray + DVD combo). I bought the Ultimate Rekall Edition for $10 when it was first announced, but now the price has gone up to $23.99 from seller, while the one disc Mind-Bending Edition is still $10. The two versions are apparently the same.

VIDEO:

Total Recall (1990) arrives at blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.85:1 encode. The original Total Recall blu ray was released in 2007 with disastrous results. This new Rekall Edition is much improved, supposedly taken from the original elements according to information from Lionsgate and approved by director Paul Verhoeven as the way he intended the film to look. As evidenced by the restoration comparison included on this Blu-ray as a supplement, the results are rather dramatic. Contrast is markedly better in this presentation, as is colour timing and especially saturation. We can see more of the finer details in the background. Besides, this goes back to the deliberate photography of Jost Vacano ('Das Boot,' 'Robocop') and Verhoeven, wanting the feel of a dystopic, lifeless and morose future. The colour palette is severely affected by these artistic decisions, also looking fairly glum and downcast, but primaries are cleanly rendered and stable. (4.0/5)

AUDIO:

This DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless track is also an improvement from the last edition. It has a wide dynamic range. The English track is an incredibly visceral experience, completely immersive and wonderfully nuanced. Dialogue and Jerry Goldsmith's nicely bombastic score are well prioritized and are delivered cleanly and clearly. (4.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst. Shipping packaging. Evar. April 9 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
First, I'd like to make this clear, the product is excellent and it's one of my favorite movies of all time. 5 stars for the steel book. My 1 star rating is for what they want me to do, "review your purchases". Purchasing from Amazon.ca seems to have been a mistake. On a side note, I've recently purchased some blu-rays from the American site because for the same blu-rays as you can get on the Canadian site, the prices are so dramatically less that even after paying for shipping (with the Canadian site I get free shipping) AND paying import duty fees they STILL cost less then if I GE them from my country's site. This makes absolutely no sense but that's another story. I've ordered items like this from multiple places and they always come well packed, usually in a tight fitting cardboard box to prevent damage. When this item and Goodfellas came together in not even a decent quality but a cheap bubble envelope, I knew there would be trouble. Goodfellas had a dent in the slipcover, which isn't a big deal but could have been avoided but what sucks the most, a huge dent in the Total Recall steelbook. When you fork out the extra cash to get a nice steelbook, the biggest thing to be avoided is getting one with a dent and they took zero precautions to prevent this from happening. I'm not nearly as anal as a lot of people who collect blu-rays are but I'm still disappointed. I'm going to just end up keeping them because to return them is a timely pain in the arse that wouldn't be an issue if they had just been sent properly like everyone else does, the first time.

Even though the remake follows the novel a bit more closely, Verhoeven and Schwarzenegger's Total Recall is the best of both. Read more
