In movie news, almost all you'll hear about are remakes, remakes, REMAKES!! Some of which are not very good. But there are some that are not that bad.

One that I like is...

What remakes do you like?

Well, I think the conventional wisdom says the very best REMAKE that ever happened was John Carpenter's Excellent Remake Of The Thing.

But for a less popular choice, I would go with 12 Monkeys.

Some others:

Christopher Nolan's Excellent Remake Of Batman
The Omega Man
Peter Jackson's King Kong
The Mechanic
A Perfect Murder
Disney's Robin Hood

Yeah, I would definitely put The Thing in that list. Also, like Jrs mentioned, The Fly and War of the Worlds. Both really good films.

The live-action film version of The Flintstones.

I don't consider those types of movies as remakes, i just count them as live action versions.

Mr Magic
Well, they've been brought back in the form of films.

But it's not a remake of a movie.
