Movies that should have never been re-made...

    Planet of the Apes.
    Remake almost made me throw up and actually made me hate the original.

    The Italion Job.
    The original was a genuine classic and the remake was just another vanilla action movie.

    The 1955 original was one of the best movies ever and the remake was just plain sloppy.

    Disagree with you here (you were dead on with the others), it wasn't some great action movie with some great plot and/or twist, but it was definitely worth watching.

    I'm not saying it was horrible. And it is worth watching, but I just think that it was re-made horribly and is just like any other action movie.

    Psycho - why remake it shot for shot? Also, Anne Heche vs Janet Leigh? Gimme a break!

    The Haunting - the original is tame by today's standards but was great for it's time. the remake was pretty hokey, especially the ending

    How about movies that I'm glad they remade. Have to start that list with Oceans 11

    Have to agree on Planet of the Apes.

    I will throw out Get Carter, Godzilla, and Shaft as some of the worst. And The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake was kind of disappointing. Some of my favorite remakes are Cape Fear, The Bourne Identity, and Oceans 11.

    THANK YOU!. Nobody ever listens to me when I say that Ocean's 11 is the best remake EVER.

    Ocean's 11 is one of my favorite movies period.

    I totally agree with you. The movie was sweet, but I'd have watched it just for Charlize Theron...even if she is old. :biggrin:

    I think if I need to watch a Chalize Theron movie, it would be Reindeer Games.

    2 Days in the Valley is much better than Reindeer Games.

    Well, I only watch Reindeer Games for a 2 minute portion.

    Have you ever seen 2 days in the valley? The 2 minutes is much better in my opinion.

    The Devil's Advocate is a good movie if you want to stare at Charlize Theron (minus the part where she's all cut up). It's also one of Keanu Reeves' best performances, but then again it's like saying 'It's one of Donny's most well thought out responses.'

    Good remake? Zatoichi: The Blind Swordsman is a great remake of Ichi the Blind Masseur.

    I haven't seen Ladykillers, but it's a Cohen Bros. movie, and they're the best. Is it that bad?

    bearonu 60% of the time, it works every time.

    In short, YES !!! I am a huge fan of the Cohen brothers but Ladykillers was horrific. Two hours of my life I will never get back.

    Anyway, back on topic, I am also a big Vincent Price fan, and while displeased at the thought that House on Haunted Hill was re-made, I have to admit that it wasn't a terrible movie until the lame-ass ending.

    By the way, The Amityville Horror is about to be re-made with Ryan Reynolds playing the father.......WTF?
