“See You at the Party, Richter!” Total Recall

Following on from my tribute to the toxic waste death scene from the original RoboCop the other day, today I thought I would tip my hat to another Paul Verhoeven classic: Total Recall starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.

In this classic scene Douglas Quaid (Arnie) faces off against Richter (Michael Ironside) in their final battle in an elevator.

Verhoeven always had a thing for arms being removed (involuntarily) and this is one of the best.

Michael Ironside never disappoints as a villain and Richter may well be his finest hour.

 

 

I literally want to become friends with someone called Richter, so I can organize a party in their honour.
