    Best Movie Remakes

    A thread about movies got me thinking about the best movies remakes I've seen. I thought "3:10 To Yuma" with Russell Crowe was a decent movie.

    Anyone else with their favorite or at least liked remakes?

    I thought the new "True Grit" with Bridges and Damon was good. The old one with John Wayne and Glen Campbell is a classic favorite but the newer one is also a good watch.

    Yep…True Grit and I will throw in the Magnificent Seven as well. I thought they were both pretty good.

    I have rarely seen a remake that I liked as well as the original.
    I guess they ran out of stories, so they have to rehash the old ones.

    I'm with elmacgyver0. As good as the remakes can be, and they can be good, they just smack of a lower level of creativity.

    Monty Walsh with Tom Selleck is pretty good.
    Never saw Lee Marvin in the original version.

    Selleck's Monte Walsh was very good as was Crowes 3:10 To Yuma. Both being better than the originals in my opinion. The rest of the list above I will stick with the originals for my preference, but the remakes are entertaining, and I watch them if they are on.

    I thought "The Thing" remake was much better than the first one.
    I like the first one, but the FX made the second spooky.
    Another was "Cape Fear".
    Robert Mitchum and Robert De Nero both made you hate them.

    Monte Walsh. I have seen both, and I think the new one is head and shoulders above the original.
    3:10 to Yuma, too.

    I enjoyed both versions of "Man On Fire", although the second version with Denzel Washington was much better with graphics.

    The Last of the Mohicans remake, circa 1992 is preferable to the original. It's extra fancy, got sound and everything. The original, silent film, from 1920 is available on Amazon Prime.

    Read the book and saw the movie but didn't know it was a remake. Daniel Day-Lewis is one of the best actors out there.

    I think the Maltese Falcon with Bogart is one of the best remakes.

    Another +1 on True Grit.

    EDIT to add Ocean's Eleven. The George Clooney version.

    Not exactly a remake as a reboot, the Star Trek movies with Chris Pine (The Kelvin Line). Also, I am not a big Will Smith fan, but his remake of the Last Man on Earth and the Omega Man "I Am Legend" was well done.
    A vote for anyone other then the conservative candidates is a vote for the liberal candidates.
