Worst Movie Reboots

Updated on March 31, 2017

If there is one thing Hollywood is good at, it is getting remakes of movies produced. Unfortunately, a lot of them are just stinkers. Hollywood keeps churning out lousy remake after lousy remake. The creativity and originality seems to gone and what we as movie goers get is rehashed stories plastered on the movie screen.

If you are going to produce a remake, do it right or don't do it at all! Unfortunately, these guys listed below, did it wrong.

The remake of Psycho is a real head scratcher! The makers of this movie were so lazy, they made a shot for shot copy of the original, only this time adding bland actors in the roles and what was an exhilarating original was turned into a boring snooze fest.

No one can argue that Steve Martin isn't talented, but this bomb hit theaters in 2006 and was a real insult to the original. He tried his best to be funny, but just missed the mark miserably. Peter Sellers would be shocked by this remake.

Even if you somehow a fan of the actor Mark Wahlberg, this boring and sub par remake deserves no love. Epic in scale, but just totally missed the mark.

Dishonorable mentions:

There are quite a few dishonorable mentions, and they are:

-The Day the Earth Stood Still(2008)

-Clash of the Titans(2010) AND it's sequel!!

-The Longest Yard(2005)

-Guess Who(2005)


-The Wicker Man(2006)


-A Nightmare on Elm Street(2010)

-The Grudge(2004)

-The Omen(2006)

-Conan the Barbarian(2011)

-Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans(2009)

-Red Dawn(2012)

-Mr. Deeds(2002)

-No Reservations(2007)

-The Amazing Spider-Man(2012)

The future of cinema

Remakes will always come out of Hollywood, that is a simple fact.

What needs to happen is that the quality of these remakes needs to increase. There is nothing wrong with a remake that actually improves on the original, but these lame cash grabs don't cut it. Hopefully, if moviegoers don't spend their hard earned cash on these stinkers, a change will come about.
