Because often times, remakes are stank wreckage washing up on the shores of the megaplex… sucking some dollars up out of audiences and then skulking back out to the sea of unoriginality. Occasionally remakes are good,for sure. Sometimes even great. But more often than not this past decade or so has brought soulless knockoff after soulless knockoff.
And it doesn’t matter if the original was a classic or not. Beyond “Total Recall”, Hollywood has given us “New” versions of “Arthur”, “Planet of the Apes”, “Fame”, “Guess who’s Coming to Dinner”, “Psycho”, “Straw Dogs”,”The Omen” and “The Pink Panther” just to name a few, with none of them holding a candle to the original.
I’m guessing that at some point there was some remake that bugged YOU, too. Which one was it? Which remake do YOU think is the worst? Does “The Day the Earth Stood Still” piss you off? Or maybe it’s Rob Zombie’s “Halloween”s. Does the “Stepford Wives” remake leave you feeling like you’re the one without a soul? LOL.
Whichever one it is, let us hear it! Which Remake do YOU think is the worst?
