Re: Total Recall - Reviews, Grading, and duiscussions, SPOILERS
I'd hardly call the original movie a classic, but it is worth seeing.
Mmmmm. I might
say it's "classic" only so far as 80s/90s action movie cheese goes. It's not a classic in the same vain as, say, Casablanca and it's not an "untouchable classic" that shouldn't have been remade. But it's certainly a movie that's very much a symbol of times it was made in.
Just because it's futuristic doesn't mean it's practical.
