    The transfer on the Special Edition DVD is extremely disappointing. The image is soft, with faded and dull color. When the flesh tones appear more vividly saturated they come across as “artificial” and “pumped”. One thing that continues to bother me is the fact that the “tint” during several Mars scenes actually changes in front of our eyes. That is plain carelessness on the part of the “Colorist” whose duty it is to make sure (Total Recall) came through with the most optimum images for a movie of its vintage.

    The most cost effective compromise is to use the same source print and completely re-color correct the whole movie while getting either the director or cinematographer’s final approval.

    Since I am requesting a new edition of the film be made for the sake of a re-color corrected transfer, how about securing some deleted material never before seen commercially on home video?

    These scenes do not need to be re-mastered just made available for viewing.
