Remakes?

Recommended Posts

Logic3

Well, fairly simple, you can post as much as you want about as many remakes as you want

 

Ok, my worst remake has to be Taxi, I mean, I saw the cover, and was wondering how that "Queen" Fatf*ckah got in the car

 

I don't care if the original was in French or not, IT HAD SUBTITLES!!!

 

Yeah ... anyway, favourite remake ...

 

Scarface!!

 

Excellent, simply excellent. What more can be said? Excellent.

The re-make of King Kong, f*cking loved it. The old movies were enjoyable, but the new one is fantastic. inlove.gif

 

Assault on Precinct 13, the original is absolute genius, a classic. The new one is hardly comparable, as basically, they are different movies, based in a similar police station. Don't get me wrong, I still enjoyed it, but it just isn't the same.

 

War of the Worlds, enjoyable in different ways, I suppose. biggrin.gif

What most remakes are missing are the things that make the original a classic. For instance, the new Carlito's Way (I know it's not a direct remake) was okay, but I found it hard to get into because it didn't have the acting of Al Pacino, one of my favorite actors.

They made a mini-series for tv. It sucked.

The original Scarface was made in 1930, released in 1932 after lots of sh*t happened with it (people thought it glorified mob life).

 

More on the original Scarface

 

I'd agree that the 1983 Scarface is the best remake.

 

On the subject of remakes, the only other that comes to mind is The Manchurian Candidate, in which case the original was wayyy better.

King hated Kubrick's version, and re-made The Shining into a TV mini-series back in 97.

 

 

Needless to say, just like most of King's TV adaptations (The Stand, IT, etc.), it sucked balls.

The Italian Job.

 

I think the newer one is quite good. As good as the old one was, I enjoyed the new version more.

 

Also, Gone In 60 Seconds.

 

Both version were good in their own ways.

C'mon people, The Thing!

 

Also I think if you're going to make remakes you should remake really sh*tty movies like My Bloody Valentine and Night of the Creeps.

 

Has anyone seen the previews for Slither? It looks like a Night of the Creeps remake to me.

Back in the day.

It was actually a pilot for a whole series. I saw most of the episodes. In all honesty the guy in baggy underoos wasn't half as pathetic as the person off camera that threw the net that was supposed to be his webbing. Lame.

 

I actually liked the older Scarface better. Not a good mob/crime movie at all, but still pretty good. I thought the one or two bits of humor were good, and there are a few scenes that they just stole outright. I liked the first Manchurian candidate better than the remake. I liked the first Ocean's eleven better (sans the ending anyway, if they tried to end a movie like that nowadays there'd be a riot in the theater.) I liked the remake of Kiss of Death better than the original, but that's a close one. I really didn't mind the Dawn of the Dead remake. I liked the most recent version of Love affair better than the original. Sabrina is a tough one, both were pretty good movies but in the end I'll have to go with Audrey Hepburn. And even though I've heard that about King thinking Kubrick screwed up The Shining, I still like the first way better. I mean come on, the douchebag from wings vs Jack Nicholson? No contest. You've got mail vs Shop around the corner (I think that was the name) Tom Hanks is a good actor, but so is Jimmy Stewart. The original Time Machine, and the original Solaris were better, but the original Cheaper by the dozen blew. I liked the first Kong better than the second, but I haven't seen the third yet.

 

There are a sh!tload of them I can't remember offhand, but in most cases I don't really prefer one over the other as much as I just want to see them both.

(EDIT)

Also, the newest The Fly, the newest Point of no return, any Godzilla that doesn't have Mathew Broderick in it, The Mod Squad remake was okay,the original The Fog was better. I'm not really sure about Heaven Can Wait vs Down to Earth as one seemed like it was a comedy with a sprinkling of romantic parts and the other a love story with a tiny bit of humor. I think I'll have to go with funny and say Down to Earth. And I can't remember if I've ever seen the original The Thing, but I probably have.

 

I also heard they're remaking Logan's Run, I almost hope it's just a rumor. It'd be good because I loved that movie, but it'd be bad because they're going to screw it up and make me stab someone.

 

P.S. Add "IMO" to the end of all of my sentences.
