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

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

I bought the FS VHS, the WS VHS, the barebones DVD, the SE DVD, the Blu-ray, and I'll be buying this. Excited. It would be good if they could give me a coupon for my devotion.

*I didn't get the baboon-assed Mars tin however

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.
