I have a bad feeling about the remake of "Total Recall," the sci-fi thriller that was adapted from Philip K. Dick's 1966 short story "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale. " The1990 movie, which starred Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sharon Stone, was a masterpiece. (And for my money, the best thing Schwarzenegger ever made, with the possible exception of "True Lies. ") The story line hasn't changed. A factory worker, in need of a vacation, heads for a company that can implant memories in the brain.

CBS has some "Good Advice" on tap tonight, and so do I. Mine is to skip "Good Advice" and watch HBO's comedies instead -- especially "The Larry Sanders Show," on which Sharon Stone is a guest star.* "Good Advice" (8:30-9 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- This show ought to be called "Lethargy Inc." Who cares? CBS.* "Models Inc." (9-10 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- William Katt, as Paul, begins to get even more involved in the murder case, and with some of the suspects, in tonight's episode. The writers have yet to ignite any sparks on this show, but at least they're beginning to make the effort to create some entertaining friction.

Next time you hear quality actresses complain that Hollywood has few good roles for women, think of "Sliver" and Sharon Stone -- and realize the essential truth of the grievance.Ms. Stone ranks as a hot, hot box-office draw from her previous film, "Basic Instinct." Furthermore, "Sliver" has gotten sizzling prerelease buzz, including reports of frantic cutting of steamy scenes to barely garner its R-rating, as well as tales of an icy behind-the-scenes relationship between Ms. Stone and co-star William Baldwin.

As if there weren't enough issues dividing America, now along comes a movie to add another.I'm talking, of course, about "Sleepless in Seattle," which is the surprise hit of the season. But it's so much more.You know what I mean. If you don't, here's an actual, real-life conversation following a night at the movie that should explain it.The Man: "I hated the movie. It was like 90 minutes of foreplay."The Woman: "What's wrong with that?"The Man (suddenly sheepish and maybe embarrassed): "N-n-nothing's wrong with that.

Los Angeles -- Sharon Stone spent years in the trenches, surviving awful movies like "King Solomon's Mines," "Action Jackson" and "Scissors," and bit parts in "He Said, She Said" and "Irreconcilable Differences." An ice pick and a silk scarf -- tools of her character's trade in "Basic Instinct" -- put an end to that.Now one of the most popular and most handsomely paid actresses in Hollywood, Ms. Stone writes her own ticket. She's co-producing her latest effort, "The Quick and the Dead," which opens Friday.

Sharon Stone built her entire career on a fraction of a second of screen time. You have to admire that. So why does Stone insist, to this day, that it was her superior acting in Basic Instinct that opened the door to fortune and fame, and not the most famous peekaboo in cinematic history? There's no doubt Stone was good, very good, as suspected killer Catherine Tramell. So good, and so friendly, in fact, that a sequel, the imaginatively titled Basic Instinct 2, blows into theaters today.

In the recently published third edition of his "Biographical Dictionary of Film," David Thomson does a wicked thing. He chooses to combine the entry for Frances Farmer with that for Sharon Stone: together again for the very first time, Hollywood's most famous victim (then) and most famous vixen (now). We are reminded that the difference between them isn't necessarily all that great, a dream factory being a factory first and foremost.Jessica Lange got the title role in "Frances," the 1982 Farmer biopic.

Now here's a high concept for a movie: Sharon Stone is Clint Eastwood.It makes sense: Both have faces so lean, angular and epic they resemble the landscape photography of Ansel Adams, and both look good in leather.And upon that sturdy rock is "The Quick and the Dead" built. It's a tale of the West, the West that was west not of St. Louis but of Rome back in the '60s when Eastwood quit shaving, strapped on an Uberti-replica Colt and made himself an international star in three movies from the outlaw genius Sergio Leone.

THE GOLDEN GLOBES didn't happen, for all intents and purposes - it was a news conference, for heaven's sake! But other events benefited from the lack of glitz at the Beverly Hilton. Over at the legendary Beverly Hills Hotel, the annual Diamond Information Center/InStyle luncheon attracted the likes of Sharon Stone in a skin-tight leopard print Cavalli cocktail dress and matching sky-high heels. This outfit did not say, "I'm just here to browse and have a bit of sushi, pay me no mind." Debra Messing was way over the top in a chic black satin party gown and a Stella McCartney bow-shaped diamond ring.

TELEVISION has brought back murder into the home - where it belongs," said filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock. Speaking of murder, an informal panel of publishers, editors and public relations pawns voted recently on who the most impossible persons are in show business. This probably won't be printed anywhere but here, as these pros all have to stay in business. But Numero Uno, at the top of the list, is the rather newish star, Vince Vaughn, he of the current Fred Claus. (This so-called comedy is about as funny as a lump of coal in one's stocking.

Sharon Stone, losing both her inhibitions and her audience, shared cinematic dis-honors with Marlon Wayans' head yesterday as nominations for the 27th annual Razzies, celebrating the year's worst films, were announced in Hollywood. Stone's Basic Instinct 2, a box-office dud that grossed less than $6 million in the United States, and Little Man, with Wayans' head atop the body of a midget pretending to be a baby, tied for the most Razzie nominations with seven. Both films were up for Worst Picture of the Year, along with the horrific horror film BloodRayne, the indecipherable and sophomoric Lady in the Water and the pointless remake of The Wicker Man. FYI For coverage of the Oscar nominations, starting at 8:30 a.m. today, go to: baltimoresun.

Poor "Last Dance." It's meant to be a searing examination of capital punishment, but any reason for it to exist was obliterated six months ago by the appearance of "Dead Man Walking," which got there first with more.But "Dead Man Walking" aside, "Last Dance" isn't very good on (( its own. Other than a powerful performance by Sharon Stone, it fritters away possibilities in odd ways, never really finding a moral center, never convincing us of any rightness of its position, and finally settling for a cheap jolt of melodramatics to give it punch.

HOLLYWOOD - One scene in Catwoman cuts painfully close to home for Sharon Stone, who plays Halle Berry's nemesis in the action-adventure based on the popular comic book. As ruthless cosmetics magnate Laurel Hedare, she laments that when she turned 40, "they threw me away." That line was added after Stone had a heart-to-heart with producer Denise Di Novi. "I was telling her about how when I turned 40, I was going around saying, `I'm 40 and it's so cool' - and then I couldn't get a job. It was the most peculiar thing I have ever seen."

Her entire Hollywood career spanned less than a decade, from a memorable (and unbilled) walk-on in a 1928 Laurel and Hardy silent film to her death in 1937 when she was just 26, and yet Jean Harlow remains one of the movies' most recognizable icons. Drive down the refurbished Hollywood Boulevard, and her visage gazes down on you from the side wall of the Chinese Theater. Search for her name on eBay, and you'll get about 200 hits - including still photos that sell for upward of $300. When the American Film Institute released its list of 25 screen goddesses, she came in at No. 22 - and many complained she had been severely shortchanged.
