Get your ass to Mars! The Film Pigs are back with a new alternate commentary for the Arnold Schwarzenegger classic TOTAL RECALL! Given the super-dull remake, this exercise in 90s over-the-topness is a breath of fresh air (Cohaagen!). And by “air” we mean a preposterous storyline, ludicrous blood-squib violence, a truly impressive amount of scene-ending quips, and the smoldering rage of Canada’s own negative emotion repository Michael Ironside. Open your miiiiiiinnnnd!
TO SYNC WITH MOVIE: Start this commentary 10 seconds after starting movie.

Holy crap. How could you guys not have already done this movie twice? This is perfect Film Pigs material. Greatly looking forward to it! Hey, Richter, see you at the party!
We tend to gravitate towards movies we’re pretty sure we’ll hate for the commentaries, and we genuinely love Total Recall.
Is it possible for the Film Pigs to do a commentary of this film that’s funnier than the commentary that comes on the disc? I just don’t know.
It’s a very tall order to top a Schwarzenegger commentary (Milius/Schwarzenegger commentary from “Conan the Barbarian”, I’m looking in your direction…). You should consider this a companion piece.
Awesome. Your dedication to your fans is inspiring.
I keep meaning to create some kind of “suggest a commentary” list or page or something, but I keep getting distracted by things like adult responsibilities and internet pornography. Although, I don’t really have many adult responsibilities.
