Movie remakes that were better than the original.

Recommended Posts

This 1978 remake of "Invasion of the body snatchers" gave me nightmares for weeks as a kid.

Just this ending scene alone sends shivers down my spine despite the absence of gore or anyone jumping out to shock you

 

What are your top tips for remakes that improved on the original?

Magnificent Seven.

I’ve just realised that due to my age I don’t consider the latest remake of TMS to be a thing, which is potentially dangerous for younger viewers, I was referring to the Brynner/McQueen version as the superior remake.

The 80s remakes of The Fly and The Thing?

I know it's a different genre (ok ok it's for kids), but I thought the most recent turtles film was better than the 90's film. I think as cgi has got better it allows for better films in instances like these. In a similar trend, I'd fly the flag for the It remake.

Eh?

It’s a “remake” of Pocahontas. Which was better anyway. Dreadful, but better. :lol:

It's still not a remake. Ripoff maybe, but not a remake.

 

Must try harder. Although I'm surprised you care so much about a film that features a planet that's round... ;)

Well if that's a qualifier, the last 5 Fast & Furious films...

 

And Terminator 2 was better than Terminator. Not remakes but incredibly similar.

 

:rolleyes:

I'm no critic but those were continuations, a remake by definition is quite different.
