It was relevant to what I was saying... After two decades of making other, sometimes better, movies based of a "Total Recall" script, we're finally getting a remake (like it or not, it is a remake because they're keeping details and plot points only found in the Verhoeven film, the "True Grit" argument won't work here). Paul Verhoeven even mentioned it in his commentary talking about "Minority Report", and likewise in the special features for "Minority Report" and "Paycheck". I think it's interesting to note the similarities between the movies now knowing what the were originally intended to be, however they may have changed when we got the final product. The fact is, "Total Recall" was based of the novelette, and these other films were inspired by the loose-fiilm adaptation and intended as remakes or sequels.
And I should note I got all of this information from the film makers in the special features for each movie's DVD, all referencing eachother, and only "Total Recall" referencing the novelette. Sure, it was mentioned in a 'Total Recall, which was based on the PKD story, is what inspire our...' sort of a way, but they all cited "Total Recall" as the original basis for their movie.
