When Hollywood runs out of ideas, they remake older films. Sometimes this works, and sometimes it fails miserably. On May 17, list the best remake you’ve ever seen and the worst.
Let's start with the WORST remake *in my opinion*
WORST Movie Remake
So many things wrong with this movie - the original was MUCH better! Spider-Man suddenly became a hipster geek who is incredibly attractive and everything works in his favor. Here's an honest trailer which sums up most of it...
Honestly, the movie was alright. The original Spider-Man is wonderful, this one... not so much. And during one of the biggest scenes (swinging between buildings and cranes), instead of focusing on the action, all I could think about was that the music sounded exactly the same as Titanic. I looked it up when I got home. James Horner. Same guy did the soundtrack for both movies. He might need to think of changing his compositions not to be so similar... To sum up, Spider-Man is better. Though while looking up the info for The Not-So Amazing one, I saw they are making a sequel in 2014. Darn.
BEST Movie Remake
Star Trek (2009) - Star Trek (1979)
Though I love the original films and watched them with my dad when I was little, I love what they did with this new film! Granted they have rewritten cannon to read a new timeline and new events for the characters, but I'm excited for the new adventures! And a hopeful lack of Khan. Never really liked Khan. Anyway, I think this new remake has a lot of great things to come! Here's a few thoughts on it - same guy, but a better honest review of the trailer. :)
One - Chris Pine is incredibly attractive. Two - Still very attractive. Three - I LOVE Star Trek! Super excited for the new movie, which I will hopefully get to see tomorrow! :)
Do you agree with my choices? I'm off to read all the rest of the entries! Hope I at least amused you!
My name is Krista and did you hear they are making another Jane Eyre? I'm kidding, but seriously how many remakes of it do we need? Have a great Friday!
