I wonder if it will have movie cash for the remake? I never picked up the original blu-ray release just the Mars "tin" back in the day.

I wouldn't expect movie cash. This release is handled by LionsGate and the remake is being distributed by Sony.

Excluding the VHS releases, I've had all of them too. This is interesting, but i'll wit a bit till after the reviews after this is released to buy it or not.

The remake is not very good, so I'd say a free copy of the blu-ray should be included with every ticket sold for the 2012 version. I saw it, and it bored me to tears. Ya know something's not right when you feel that Schwarzenegger was more believable in the role. Plus, it does almost nothing to differentiate it from the original. In fact, theres this odd element where they pay tons of little homages to the Verhoeven original. Obviously, only fans of the 1990 film would recognize them. That is the exact audience that gets nothing new out of this film. Except glossier special effects and lamer action sequences brought to you by the maker of LIVE FREE OR DIEHARD and UNDERWORLD.

Re: TOTAL RECALL: Mind-Bending Edition (new transfer!) - 7/31/12

I almost bought the blu-ray several times at Wal-Mart when it was on sale for $7, but held off because of the bad reviews. Finally my reticence works in my favor!

It's now down to $9.86.

EDIT: Mr. Cinema beat me to it.

This title is not shown in Best Buy's ad for next week. So it should be $9.99, which means it qualifies for the "upgrade and save" program. $4.99 sounds great.

What makes you so sure? I pre-ordered this a while ago. It would be good for me to cancel the order and do the Best Buy thing, but how sure are you that it will be offered in the swap program?

As long as it's $9.99 and up, it will qualify.

Are specs *identical* to the UK release? Video Bitrate exactly the same? If so, it's a done deal at $9.99 ($4.99!).

Blu-ray.com gave the video 5 and audio 4.5. The interview with Verhoeven is nearly 35 minutes and in HD. The restoration featurette is also a little over 5 minutes.

Strange that the US and UK disc both have the French and German language options, yet they region code both of them...
