You can flick through a hundred digital channels and find bugger all on, maybe a re-run of Catchphrase where the new, imposter presenter breaks his foot and just momentarily has his perma-smirk wiped from his idiot face.

But then just occasionally you come across some real retro gold. Like last night when a casual flick brought us face-to-face with a young Sharon Stone making ITV4 worth its digital bandwidth.

The film was Total Recall; it’s pure brilliance for these three reasons:

  1. It’s a sci-fi classic: violent, disturbing; exploring how destructive paranoia can be and questioning the very fabric of our reality and self image.
  2. It has a woman with three tits in it.
  3. Sharon Stone is VERY, VERY fit. Especially in the scene where she tries to kick Arnie’s arse.


The 1990 masterpiece (yep, masterpiece, you heard us) is getting a remake this year swapping Colin Farrell for Arnold Schwarzenegger and Stone being replaced by the lovely Kate Beckinsale.

It looks reassuringly good but, and it's a big butt, it won’t have Sharon Stone in it wearing Lycra, which is definitely a loss in our perverted retro boner books.

Readers: Total Recall a movie classic or mindless rubbish? Tell us below, why don’t you.
