    Hmm, close call... either where Arnie pulls the tracking device out of his nose or the scene in Mars spaceport where Arnie's disguise starts to malfuntion and he twists the ear to release the fake head.

    :rotfl: :rotfl: Or that too :D

    That bit where the old guy from the recall company comes into Arnie's room and tries to convince him that he is hallucinating. For me, this was the closest that the film got to the feel of the story (not knowing what was real). I believe the original is called something like "we can remember it for you wholesale" (Philip K Dick). Original story much better than film IMHO (although Ms Stone was a welcome treat for the eyes).

    Where Arhnuld is running away and goes through the security check point and the x-ray shows the gun.

    I remember this from when I was a kid and thought that it was genius as I'd never seen anything like that before


    Check out my trade thread ;)

    When one of the freaks says "You got a lot of nerve showing your face in here"

    Arnie replys "Look who's talking"

    Probably didn't get that quote exactly right.

    Just read in one of the DVD mags on the newsstand (the one with Total Recall on the cover) that there was going to be a sequel but the company went but and Spielberg bought the script off them and made the film instead. This film was 'Minority Report'. Originally it was going to be set on Mars which would have made more sense then by having three 'alien' pre-cogs.

    best bit is the gunfight on the escalator, where arnie uses innocent bystanders as shields, then they all trample the dead bodies.
    I went to a preview screening of this movie at the cinema when it first came out, and I seem to remember a lot more flesh in the bedroom scene. I think the movie was recut and that scene altered.

    While I'm not sure it's my "favourite" scene, one image from that film that always stuck in my mind as bizarrely kinky was the midget hooker wearing very small stockings and suspenders.

    Most definetely a classic where its hard to choose a favourite - other scenes that come to mind when he annihilates the co-workers in the corridor, ironstones arms in the lift scene in the pyramid and what about the classic "OPEN YOUR MIND - OPEN YOUR MIIINND". Gotta watch this tonite

    C'mon the bit everyone remembers is when they get exposed to near vacuum and the female lead ends up looking like Fatima Whitbread! :D

    I love the way their eyes are literally bulging out of their sockets, veins bursting everywhere, then seconds later, Mars acquires a one bar atmosphere and their faces return to normal... :rotfl:

    I'm actually quite glad that they didn't make a sequel as that would have had to confirm one way or the other whether it was all just a Rekall-induced virtual holiday (my opinion) or it all actually happened (very silly and would spoil my rating of the movie).
