MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- The interview took place in the "Total Recall" conference room of Silicon Graphics Inc.'s headquarters, which shouldn't be confused with the conference rooms upstairs bearing the titles "Terminator II" or "Beauty and the Beast."For the moment, Edward McCracken, SGI president and chief executive, wasn't discussing those films, for which his super-fast 3-D graphics machines generated special effects and animation, turning "morphing" into a generally recognized term.

I had low expectations for the remake of"Total Recall,"one of my favorite movies. And it appears that they have been met. The movies are based on the great Philip K. Dick's 1966 short story "We Can Remember It For You Wholesale. " Dick was asci-fi master, and his works have been adpated for many other movies, including "Minority Report," "King of the Elves" and"The Adjustment Bureau. " The original, 1990 "Total Recall," which starred Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sharon Stone, dealt with the blurred line between memory and reality as the hero confronted an improbable plot.

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.

Targus accessory adds voice recording to Visor's capabilities I have scrambled for a scrap of paper to jot down an idea while driving hundreds of times. Or forgotten to bring a pen for notes during a meeting. Or wished that I could just listen instead of writing furiously.

Targus has just shipped the Total Recall Digital Voice Recorder, a 1.2-ounce module that pops into the personal digital assistants.

IT WAS A SUMMER of violence, and I don't mean the Persian Gulf crisis. I'm talking about movies.Film violence was at an all-time high. SAT scores are at an all time low and a testing official concludes that too many students are watching music videos and playing video games instead of reading. The FBI reports that violent crime is up.Is there a correlation? Sure.Did you see "RoboCop II," "Die Hard II," "Total Recall," "Wild at Heart" or "Delta Force?" If so, then you know that this was the summer of our discontent with movies, or our summer of violent intent.

Evidently at least nine people in the world thought "Total Recall" was a great movie; "Fortress" appears to have been made by four of them for the other five.Like "Recall" it's a mega-violent dystopian fantasy about mind- and dream-control set in an underground metropolis overseen by an evil bad actor.Unlike "Recall," it didn't cost $80 million; $80 is more like it.What does $80 buy you these days?Not much.For one thing, it buys you Christopher Lambert, a far-fallen star whose appeal has always baffled me. Long ago, in "Greystoke," he was the only actor who played Tarzan who made Johnny Weissmuller look good.

Movies ''Reversal of Fortune'' is a fascinating dramatization of the story of Claus Von Bulow, who was convicted then acquitted of attempting to murder his wife, the super wealthy Sunny Von Bulow. Glenn Close and Jeremy Irons, left, are Sunny and Claus Von Bulow, and Ron Silver is the Harvard-trained attorney who is asked to seek a new trial for Von Bulow. The film has more humor than you might expect, and the players are superb. Language. Rating: PG-13. ****College opera is busy these days.

No sport whose world championship is decided by penalty kicks could keep Americans away from the movies. Although early projections for a record nonholiday-weekend box office proved unsupportable when actual attendance figures came in, World Cup couldn't crimp the nation's interest in world-beating movie heroes.Led by three powerhouse performers -- Arnold Schwarzenegger's action-comedy comeback "True Lies," the phenomenally strong holdover "Forrest Gump" and Disney's continually regal "The Lion King" -- the combined gross of 68 films in release was $101,650,507, according to the industry data clearinghouse Exhibitor Relations.

ASHBURN, Va. -- The Washington Redskins have selective memories when it comes to last season's trip to Giants Stadium.

Things were already weird. And they're getting weirder. As supporters cheered the strapping Republican action star - the next governor of California - his doting wife, the longtime NBC News correspondent, stood to his left. Stationed just behind was his exuberant father-in-law, a lifelong liberal who was Democrat George S. McGovern's running mate in 1972. This wasn't a scene "ripped from the headlines," like Dick Wolf's ever-expanding Law & Order empire. This is the headline. And here's another: The thin, fragile membrane separating news from entertainment, fact from fantasy, appears to have disintegrated entirely.

Long before Governor Terminator, before Congressman Gopher and Congressman Cooter, even before Governor Gipper, there was Governor Pappy. W. Lee "Pappy" O'Daniel, host of a popular daily music program on Texas radio, swept into the Texas governor's mansion way back in 1938. In years to come, other entertainers would also become governors, in Louisiana, Connecticut, California, Minnesota and, now, California again. Not only did O'Daniel get to be governor, he was re-elected in 1940 and, in 1941, won a special election to the U.S. Senate, narrowly defeating a young congressman named Lyndon Baines Johnson.

News and notes as California's gubernatorial recall election campaign lurches into high gear. Today: Samplings from the online world. Yes, your worst fears have been realized: Someone has written "The Recall Song." Yes, it's getting air-time. Yes, it's horrifyingly bad. Desperately bored individuals can hear the song, sung to the tune of "American Pie," by visiting a pro-recall Web site - www.recallgraydavis.com. Sample lyrics (with apologies to the great Don McLean): A long, long time ago ... I can still remember ... The days of Governor Jerry Brown ... We thought things couldn't get much worse, Moonbeam and his medfly curse, But now Jerry Brown isn't looking all that bad. Is there someone out there who can save us?

New York -- Once upon a time he was a body builder, and under the star-burst shirt he's wearing today, there's still enough muscle to propel a backfield into the divisional playoffs. Then, with his broad smile and beaming charm, he became a movie star, and Arnold Schwarzenegger prospered beyond all expectations.But now, on this day, Arnold is a salesman.This could be an Amway convention or a Tupperware session with all the selling that's going on. Actually, it's a Manhattan banquet room and Arnold, big as a haunch of beef and radiating Arnold-charm and Arnold-smiles, is selling his new product "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" with the single-minded energy that once he devoted to lifting large disks of metal in an obscure Austrian gym all those many years ago.Though an American citizen since 1984, Schwarzenegger is still Austrian after all these years.

All you need to sense the accuracy of a revealing documentary about the movie business on basic cable this weekend is to remember how often you've seen Arnold Schwarzenegger this summer.The man has been everywhere! Plugging his latest hit, "Terminator 2," he's been doing the television talk shows and making the covers of magazines both slick and pulpy. And just this week he also popped up in the news pages for the birth of his second child (a daughter, to celebrity wife Maria Shriver).Did the couple time the blessed event to coincide with the "Terminator" publicity push?
