I'm dying to buy this movie but I'm scared its flawed.

I own a Panny BDT220 player. Is that good to try it on? I have updated the firmware right along however not in the last 6 months though.

It is flawed. Just rent it and convert to PCM for playback.

Re: Total Recall - Blu-ray review

Thanks for the review. Sounds like the movie is one big visual and audio showcase, with the story and dialogue not being much of a priority. That's fine with me. I love big dumb action movies I'll pick it up when it's around $10 or so

hmmm, it might be that your player is having issues with the way it was authored. have you updated your firmware?
After exchanging the disk for the 2nd time, I checked for a firmware upgrade and I'm up to date. Its funny how this player gets stuck on the starting of chapter 9 on every exchange that I brought home so far.

well, according to blu-ray.com there IS an exchange program for those of you with affected players.....

just email consumer@sphecustomersupport.sony.com requesting a pre-paid mailer to send back your affected copy

Re: Total Recall - Blu-ray review

Is anyone having hardware compatibility issues with this movie?

Re: Total Recall - Blu-ray review

I haven't...yet...
Lately, I've come across more and more firmware updates that are not yet available for my blu-ray player so I've had to wait on the manufacturer to provide compatibility for a movie I've purchased.

Thank you for that tidbit of information. I've contacted Sony via email regarding the player itself asking them if they encountered other complaints with this bluray and player. I've just sent an email out to the address you suggested telling them of by experience. Hopefully, they'll ship me a working copy of this flick.

I had purchased the combo pack as I still have two DVD players. The DVD plays fine, just not the BluRay.

Not sure I would call JJ Abrams non talented but I don't understand the artistic characteristics they perceive using lens flare. Even Steven Spielberg employs it in his movies.
I love the lens flare effect --- one of my favorite hallmarks of Die Hard.

Each to his own, I guess.
