    I preferred the original True Grit. I guess I’m just a die hard John Wayne fan. Man on fire with Denzel Washington, I really enjoyed. I’m still not sure if that was the best ending or not, but it sure was dramatic. I only saw the original years after the remake and wasn’t nearly impressed.

    I think you might be the only one to think that.

    I thought the remake of Planet of the Apes did a much better job of suspending disbelief than the original did. It wasn’t just the superior special effects and costuming; the acting was more believable too.

    The same with True Grit. John Wayne did a good enough portrayal of John Wayne doing Rooster Cogburn, but when Jeff Bridges did Rooster Cogburn, you could almost smell him.

    And that hard-boiled little girl in the remake was much more believable than the chirpy, cheery performance of the starlet (forget her name) in the first one.

    But in general, movie remakes are so poor that I can’t even remember most of them. I didn’t see it, but when they announce that the reboot of Psycho was a megadud, I was not astonished.

    Robin Hood with Russell Crowe was well done, the archery equipment was spot on.

    Stagecoach wasn't bad as a remake, after all it had Ann Margaret in it. I first saw it on TV as a kid.

    Years later I saw the John Wayne version, and have to admit it is a better movie.

    Today, were it not for great previous movies and comic books there would be no 2022 Jollywood. Incredibly incompetent is a better title for an award.

    One movie they better not EVER remake is The Princess Bride. Guilty pleasure and if they mess with it, well..........

    True Grit. I had read the book before I saw the first version, and was a bit disappointed in the first version. Second version was much better.

    On a comedic note, the remake of The Lady Killers with Tom Hanks is better than the Peter Sellers original. Then again, the Coen brothers always put strange twists on things.

    The 2021 Dune is a far better attempt at doing Frank Herbert's book justice than the 1984 effort - and they had the good sense to NOT try to fit the whole book into one movie.
    WWJMBD?

    Is the mightiness of the pen still relevant after we roll the writing paper into cartridges for a Sharps?

    I like the first one, but the FX made the second spooky.
    Another was "Cape Fear".

    All hale Madelaine Kahn. Her character in this as the "Teutonic Tart" and in Young Frankenstine are epic. Watch a youtube of the legendary Gilder Radner playing Barbara Walters interview her as she plays the German Tart!

    1973 Papillion with Steve McQueen and Dustin Huffman was quite the story. The remake in 2017 helped explain some things missing in the original. Quite the real story. I think both need to be watched for full story.

    I'd like to see a remake of Sgt York I just hope that they do a better job than the jokers who did All quiet on the western front. We know so much more about Alvin York now than they did in 1941 he went from the hell of the Argonne to being the largest pillar in his community.
