Hollywood Remakes That Outshone the Originals

When the word remake gets thrown around in Hollywood, a collective sigh is the typical reaction. Oftentimes remakes are seen as a lazy effort by Hollywood to capitalize on fan audience nostalgia and brand recognition, resulting in a film that lacks purpose or creativity. While that winds up being the case for many Hollywood remakes, that isn’t to say that there aren’t filmmakers who bring something new to a classic, or in some cases update it and create a new classic. Check out this list of some of Hollywood’s best remakes. ~Paolo Maquiraya

    This writer really knows his films, his knowledge is impressive. I agree with most of the selections here, the new 3:10 to Yuma is one of my favourite films, as is True Grit (both the old and the new). I’m not a film connoisseur, I only know what I like and what I don’t, but this is a great selection.
