Total Recall (1990)

Directed by
Paul Verhoeven

Set in 2084, this classic but brutal sci-fi action thriller stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as Douglas Quaid, a lowly construction worker from Earth who has been plagued by constant dreams of Mars.

Unable to afford to visit the red planet, Quaid decides to have the memory of a trip to Mars implanted in his mind by Rekall Inc, a firm specialising in memory implants. Bad move. Things go disastrously wrong and Quaid is launched into a dangerous world of espionage, mutant rebels and alien conspiracies.

Released in 1990 and directed by Paul Verhoeven, it's one of Arnie's less wooden performances and there's even the odd gag amidst the OTT violence and effects. And Sharon Stone turns in a powerful performance as Lori, who may - or may not - be Quaid's loving wife. Good stuff.
