First off, I want to start by saying that I am a classic movie lover and hate nothing more than seeing the legacy of a great movie destroyed by a shoddy remake. That said, I do believe that there are valid reasons for remaking a film. Great Idea, Poorly Executed (i.e. Not a good movie the first time) Limitations due to Censorship Limitations due to technology Drastic differences from the source material (i.e. Book or Play) This topic arises quite often in various threads and sometimes gets quite ugly. Like it or not, the studios are going to continue to do this, because they believe there is a built-in audience and money. Also, there is a history of movies that have had very good remakes. The Maltese Falcon (This was the 3rd time that this story was filmed) Lolita (Personally, I like the remake because it removed the limitations from Kubrick's) Psycho (Just Kidding) The Man Who Knew Too Much (Hitchcock made this twice) Countless others that have slipped my mind. Anyway, back to the original point of my thread. Are there any movies that you've seen that you wish somebody would remake. The one that struck me was Capra's "Lost Horizon". This movie was so butchered over the years and had many technical limitations. I could imagine this movie being amazing today. I'm sure I'll think of others that I've seen, but I thought this would be an interesting topic.
