    I figure since I live in Calif I need to purchase Total Recall! I used to love the movie but have not purchased it because all Artisian DVD's suck (with the exception of Terminator 2)! I bought my wife the Dirty Dancing special edition and let me tell you in one word, "POS", well I guess it was three words! That DVD was horrid, the video and sound. I am hoping somebody will help me, I know Totall Recall is only 9.99 at Target, but I don't want to support any of Artisians titles unless they do a better job.!!

    Yes, it is good.

    The barebones edition has a slighty crisper image quality than the SE, but both are pretty good.

    I have the SE and the quality is pretty good. However, Artisan has aleady said a new edition will be coming out (eventually).

    I agree the Terminators are excellent, but I have not seen the new Stargate. Both of those movies always had high expectations to be good. Terminator 2 has been a home theater staple for years and Stargate was the first DD movie available on laserdisc. What I am saying is for the most part Artisan does not do a good job restoring movies that need it, Stargate and Terminator 2 were movies they had to do well because I would imagine they are the top titles in their library.

    Well, you can trust Total Recall as well. Good transfer.

    Good video and audio, terrible commentary (Schwarzenegger constantly interrupts Verhoeven to give a play by play, "look, I just killed that guy...now I'm running" - it's really that bad at times), good documentary. Other stuff is random filler.

    Deep Discount DVD is selling the SE for $8 with free shipping - that's a steal.

    Coconuts is selling the SE for $7.99, if they have any left.
