    A spotty entry. Some of the picks (Dawn of the Dead, Hairspray, Oceans 11) don’t merit serious consideration because the originals weren’t important nor were the remakes either. Others (The Fly, Scarface, True Grit) are spot on. A few (A Star is Born, Body Snatchers, The Thing) aren’t improvements but just equals. And one (Little Shop of Horrors) is a 100% miss. The Corman original is infinitely better than the disastrous Frank Oz remake, especially since the Oz film emasculates the stage version…as your video inadvertently admits by including footage from the finale which was cut from the theatrical version.

    For me was all the remakes better, why?
    I was grownup whit these actors, the original classics was the most actors unknown for me and also as movie.
    The most people love always a movie of his time area, cuz the quality of images, special effects and knowing of actors.

    A Star is Born was first made in 1937 - so the 1954, 1976 and 2018 versions are all remakes. You listed a remake of a remake in your honourable mentions - well done.

    "Hairspray" with John Travolta SUCKS! It lacks the energy of the Broadway musical and the charm of John Waters' ORIGINAL 1988 classic. And star Power?? More like MISCAST star power. Travolta is terribly miscast as Edna. In the other versions, Edna is a full comic character. Travolta is just slumming it in drag here, and the girl playing the leading role of Tracy does not even register here. Boy,, you are monumentally WRONG on this one. I suggest you go back to film school, and see some live theatre musicals too!

    That was a complete waste of 10 minutes. I clicked, hoping to see The Parent Trap. Instead, you showed a bunch of movies, for the exception of The Little Shop Of Horrors, that I will never watch in this lifetime. And, to top it all off, you had to torture my ears with Lady Gaga. That was totally uncalled for.

    "Hairspray" the Musical is not a remake if the 1988 film! It is a film adaptation the Broadway Musical Hairspray (with a few nods to the 1988 movie) that was based on the original film. It is apples and oranges and it offends me that you put on this list.As much as I loved Hairspray the musical, both the movie and stage versions) It will never have the cult following that John Waters "Hairspray" has.

    Little Women with Winona Ryder
    King Kong
    Dredd (waaaaay better than the original, in my opinion)
    Murder on the Orient Express with Branagh is actually good, but DEFINITELY not better than the Finney version,
    SABRINA with Harrison ford was WAAAAY better than the Bogart version (poor Audrey Hepburn was wasted with that highly unenthusiastic Bogart)
    Ghostbusters remake was good. Not better, but definitely good. Don't care what anyone else thinks!
    Far From the Madding Crowd with Carey Mulligan was just exquisite.

    YEAH! THE THING is #1! It's one of the few times I felt where both the original and the remake were equally awesome! And thumbs WAY WAY UP also to 1978's INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS, 1983's SCARFACE and 1986's THE FLY - I still think these three versions are superior to their predecessors, and they're in my TOP 100 FAVORITE FILMS OF ALL TIME!

    The Nutty Professor
    Peter Jackson’s King Kong
    Red Dragon (remake of Manhunter)

    Why put let me in on this list????? the american movie is a joke compared to the original swedish movie. If you'd read the book you can see why the american fails to capture all those insane moods and it also cut out important scenes. The american one feels like a normal horror movie, but the swedish one and the original book, made me so sick to my stomach i had to stop watching/reading them. That is good story/film making, just by atmosphere making me scared and not by jumpscares

    I just watched the remake of Cape Fear for the first time last night. I've never seen the original, so I can't compare, but the remake was pretty good. The music was a little cheesy, but I get why it's there. The only part of the movie that really threw me off was Robert De Niro doing a southern accent. It's just...wrong lol. His portrayal of Max Cady was absolutely menacing though, to the point that I was very uncomfortable during several portions of the movie.

    Ok first of all in the mentions in the film a star id born whant lady gaga has anything to do with a remake of a movie? Anyway when it comes to a remake if the producers and directors really loved it and lived with the film they remaking will be respected,most of the times though because they are trying so hard to put their own lousy signature things starting to go down the hill.For instance an epic movie in our eyes like one of my favorites from the 80s fright night if i had the money and luxury i would remake it much better than Craig Gillespie because of the respect of this film i have and nostalgia values.Though to be honest i don't believe that from the moment a movie that was good in the past needs a remake & all.A bad movie probably yes but not something that was good made,even though it is really welcome to me when it is respected.And i don't think i will ever put even to your honorable mentions ben hur from 2016 since it is not worth mentioning it close to the classic of 59! Some films are not allowed to be touched simple as that people and producers all over the world.
