So, I have been trying for a few days now to get my words together and write a post about all the unnecessary Remakes and “Re-Boots” that Hollywood has been pushing out lately. It annoys me, mainly because a lot of them are Remakes of Classic 80’s Movies which is my Generation. But I wanted to really analyze WHY this is happening, and if anything can be done to stop them.

While I still try to wrap my head around THAT post, I wanted to keep my #TopTenThursday consistent. So here is a Top 10 list that’s related to my as-yet-unpublished-Post. It’s MYFAVORITE Movie Remakes of All Time, the Remakes that manage to be just as good, and sometimes better, then their originals. As we know, most remakes are crap, but I was surprised to find there were so many worthy Remakes – I didn’t think I would even find 10.

Since time is a bit of an issue (I’m at work Yo!), I’m just gonna post the list without my witty (lol) descriptions.

So here goes…



10. “Cape Fear” (1991)

9. “Death at a Funeral” (2010)

8. “The Fly” (1986)

7. “Imitation of Life” (1959)

6. “3:10 to Yuma” (2007)

5. “Dawn of the Dead” (2004)

4. “The Nutty Professor” (1996)

3. “King Kong” (2005)

2. “Ocean’s Eleven” (2001)
