Thread: Movies that need to be re-made

  1. #1

    Default Movies that need to be re-made

    Sitting here after surgery and nothing else to do but watch tv and came across a movie I hadn't seen in awhile that I thin should be re-made.

    Adventures of Buckaroo Bonzai

    List yours and who you'd like to see in them.

    Remakes are a waste of the investment. They never come close to matching, never mind exceeding, the quality of the original.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    I was never able to watch John David Booty quarterback USC without thinking of Buckaroo Bonzai.

    I disagree, some remakes are done well. I think the best "remakes" are often the ones that completely change the theme to something comedic.

    Examples - "Stalag 17" to the t.v. series "Hogans Hero's" , "Airport 1975" to the film "Airplane".


    With a change in theme in mind I could see some of these films remade with different stars -



    "Rocky" - Carrot Top replaces Sylvester Stallone

    "Alien" - Fran Drescher replaces Sigourney Weaver

    "They call me MISTER Tibbs" - Eddie Murphy replaces Sidney Poitier

    "Godfather" - Danny DeVito replaces Marlon Brando

    "Omega Man" - Pee Wee Herman replaces Charlton Heston

    Airplane was a parody, not a remake. Parodies are often very good, remakes are almost never good.

    What if the original sucked but could've been a good movie if done right?
