As long as Lionsgate don't take their cues from what Fox did to Predator, I look forward to getting this.

I'm hoping this is closer to Lionsgate's treatment of Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown (which were also director-supervised): excellent A/V, one or two new extras and a low price point.

This reminded me I should probably get around to watching my UK disc. I know it reviewed better than the current US disc. Would still love to see a great domestic release though.

I still have the German HD-DVD of this film. I didn't pay much for it, so I'll definitely pick this up if it's a big improvement.

I held off on the first release waiting for something better.

This is that something.

I hope this turns out awesome, i'm glad I waited too. I still have my darn Mars tin on DVD since I heard the Blu-ray wasn't very good.

I'm lucky...I've never owned a prior version other than the old laserdisc one...but just prebooked.

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.

Price has dropped on Amazon to $9.86.

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!

RocShemp 05-16-12 09:09 PM

Re: TOTAL RECALL: Mind-Bending Edition (new transfer!) - 7/31/12
 
It's now down to $9.86.

EDIT: Mr. Cinema beat me to it. :doh:

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?
