Total Recall is an action thriller about reality and memory, inspired anew by the famous short story “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale.” Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories.  For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell), even though he's got a beautiful wife (Kate Beckinsale) who he loves, the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life - real memories of life as a super-spy might be just what he needs. But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man. Finding himself on the run from the police – controlled by Chancellor Cohaagen (Bryan Cranston), the leader of the free world – Quaid teams up with a rebel fighter (Jessica Biel) to find the head of the underground resistance (Bill Nighy) and stop Cohaagen. The line between fantasy and reality gets blurred and the fate of his world hangs in the balance as Quaid discovers his true identity, his true love, and his true fate.

  1. It's simple really... And will most likely be the most popular answer

    But I'd be Batman... Fighting against his arch nemesis... Chuck Norris

  2. This comment has been removed by the author.

  3. I would choose a life that is almost exactly as the one I am having right now but with all the correct paths chosen and without any mistakes. Perfect life with all the events happening in the way you have imagined.

  4. World renowned chef/astronaut with a monkey butler obviously

  5. I'd be a dinosaur, living as a dinosaur in Dinosaur Land. Groowl.

  6. I'd be a billionaire! Go on shopping sprees and pamper my family and friends :)

  7. Rekall is really just implanting memories right? So I'd have the memories of Colin Farrell implanted so that I could sit there at the screening with my plus-one and regale them with tales from the production.

  8. I'd come back as Stephanie Meyer's father a make sure I pulled out so that the Twilight series was never created.

  9. I'd want the memories of Carl Sagan, however keep my current day job as the massage therapist for Sergey Diaghilev's Russian Ballet Company, the Ballets Russes.

    ... it's a pretty sweet gig, as you'd imagine. Being a professional massage oil applicator.

  10. I would recall the memories of Dr. Doom. Not only could I gain his knowledge of science and sorcery I could also build a time machine!

  11. My Rekall life would be a melenge of 1920s style with enough technology for me to know how to do everything I need, without being overwhelmed by devices to the point that I always need to carry a bag.

  12. I'd choose my hubby's life - how good would it be to have your wife do all the domestic stuff for you!

  13. I would just choose to have some money, I love my life, just not the debt!
