This Friday, "Total Recall," a movie about a man named Doug Quaid (Colin Farrell) who learns that he's a spy (or is he?) while undergoing a memory implant procedure, will be released into theaters. Which harkens back to a movie from 1990 -- also called "Total Recall" -- in which a man named Doug Quaid (Arnold Schwarzenegger) learns that he's a spy (or is he?) while undergoing a memory implant procedure. Here, we compare the Schwarzenegger sorta-classic to the new, revamped version that you probably won't see. (Spoilers ahead, if you care.)
Mike Ryan is senior entertainment writer for The Huffington Post. He watched two Total Recall movies on Wednesday. You can contact him directly on Twitter.
