MOVIE LIST: Remakes

Pay it
Forward

25 value - Virtual OK

List of 20+ quality movie remakes.

I think people treat the announcement of remakes harshly without even giving them a chance. I've made a list of remakes that do the original justice or far outpass it. Some bring the story to a new generation or to a world-wide audience. Some edify the story by making it a musical. Most are based on novels or plays anyway. Some are based on tv shows.

None of these remakes are based on "classics". So nothing by Shakespeare and Jane Austen or the like, or retellings of "Alice in wonderland," "Peter Pan," and fairy tales on this list. It would be enormous if I added them, too.

Here's an example that I didn't put on the list:

Swiss Family Robinson (1960) remake of the 1940 movie of the same name. Here's the twist: Swiss Family Robinson inspired the 1960s TV show Lost in Space which had it's own film remake in 1998 (an example of a BAD remake).

P.S. I would like to add that I have not seen half of the originals, but I have seen all of the remakes. ;) I only put remakes that I would watch again (there are definitely a lot more than on this list).

Also, the Lord of the Rings is a REMAKE! *mike drop*

Check out my other lists: Archaeology, Time Travel, Remakes, Weddings, and Twins. More lists coming soon. I also make custom lists.

Training & Qualifications


I have seen 1600+ movies. I love finding clusters of similar movies. I picked "remakes" for the theme because I know not all remakes are bad.

I will not recommend anything I haven't seen; nor recommend something I wouldn't be willing to watch again.

Availability & Preferences


I try to respond quickly (during waking hours obviously).

Trading Preference: Pay it forward – pass on the good deed!

About Janice Eckworth

I have a variety of interests and craft skills. I enjoy art, astronomy, baking, beading, calligraphy, crochet, drawing, etymology, genealogy, knitting, kumihimo, movies, nail art, origami, painting, ...piano, puzzles, quilting, reading, scrapbooking, sewing, and ukulele. (If you noticed that I ordered my list alphabetically, you can image the attention to detail I put into my projects.) I have been knitting for 8 years. I've made hats, socks, sweaters, and a variety of other projects. I've loved learning different techniques over the years. Knitting with a different color yarn in each hand is my current favorite. I know how to knit continental (aka picking) and English (throwing or flicking). I have seen 1700+ movies. I have made several services in the form of MOVIE LISTS. One of my favorite services is movie recommendations. I know how hard it can be to find something fun. I will not recommend anything I haven't seen; nor recommend something I wouldn't be willing to watch again. I'm also a parent of two Autistic boys (8 and 6). They are clever, happy little boys, so I'm very lucky. I also teach piano and ukulele lessons locally (and a few via videochat).show more
