Total Recall Synopsis

Total Recall is an action thriller about reality and memory, inspired anew by the famous short story “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale” by Philip K. Dick. Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories. For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell), even though he's got a beautiful wife (Kate Beckinsale) who he loves, the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life - real memories of life as a super-spy might be just what he needs. But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man. Finding himself on the run from the police – controlled by Chancellor Cohaagen (Bryan Cranston), the leader of the free world – Quaid teams up with a rebel fighter (Jessica Biel) to find the head of the underground resistance (Bill Nighy) and stop Cohaagen. The line between fantasy and reality gets blurred and the fate of his world hangs in the balance as Quaid discovers his true identity, his true love, and his true fate.

Total Recall Closer To A Reality: Fake Memories Implanted In Mice Total Recall Closer To A Reality: Fake Memories Implanted In Mice
Over the years, science fiction writers like Philip K Dick, Isaac Asimov and H.G. Wells have continued to remain relevant as more and more of the wacky gizmos and morally complicated societal issues they predicted have inched closer to reality. Today, another one of those forecasts into future technology got a whole lot less ridiculous after scientists announced they successfully implanted fake memories into mice.

The God of War series' bald-headed, blade-slinging, ash-covered anti-hero, Kratos, is one angry dude. While several of the previous games in the series have delved into the cursed Spartan's past, the best way to learn about what triggered all of that rage is to play the upcoming PlayStation 3 exclusive, God of War: Ascension. And the best way to play the single player demo for said game well before it hits store shelves is, of course, to buy the Total Recall Blu-ray.

No film is ever able to get through development, production and editing without at least some changes.

For years we have watched as studios have constantly churned out remakes of 80s movies like Fright Night, Clash of the Titans, Nightmare on Elm Street and The Karate Kid, but the release of Total Recall brings us into whole new territory: the 90s. The original adaptation, directed by Paul Verhoeven, came out in 1990, and the remake could very well be the excuse studios need to start mining the rest of the decade for properties to reboot.

Part of what makes the story of Total Recall so great is its ambiguity. While the audience is happy to go along with the ride and see Douglas Quaid become a super spy and a hero, at the back of your mind you’re always questioning if what we’re seeing is actually happening. Is Quaid actually living the life of a spy or is he just experiencing an implanted memory? It’s a fun and confusing question, and not just for the audience, but the cast as well.

Paul Verhoeven’s Total Recall is seen by many as one of the best examples of modern science-fiction. Released in 1990, the film mixed classic sci-fi elements with great world building, plenty of action, and a lot of fun. Because of the original’s popularity, however, there are many eyes looking at director Len Wiseman and producer Toby Jaffe, who will be releasing their own version of Total Recall this August...
