For Ocean's Eleven, it was a great idea...because of the cast...I have not watched all other remakes..
some times, it turns out great like The Departed
sometimes a horrible idea. i hated The Tourist remake
I agree that sometimes it works and that sometimes you have to wonder, "Why??" A remake gone ugly is The Fog. The original (1980) with Adrienne Barbeau is genuinely scary and has a great cast. When the remake came out, I was SO excited....until I saw it.
A remake I did love was Dave, which I thought was a remake of Moon Over Parador (awesome, awesome movie). As it turns out, they both are based on The Prisoner of Zenda. Both of those movies had amazing casts and were incredibly funny.

by Daffy Duck 7 years ago
Hollywood just keeps coming out with remakes after remakes. The origional PLanet of the Apes is better than the remake as is true of most remakes. Now Footloose has been remade and is out in theaters.Is there anyone besides me that hears about these remakes and just wants to hang...

In your opinion, has any movie remake ever been better than the original movie or book?I still go back to The Notebook, I love the movie and don't care for the book as much. Just wondering if you think that any remakes have surpassed their original counterparts.

Do you think its a good idea or bad idea to write about politics on HubPages?Politics, like religion, stirs up emotions in some people bringing out their, shall we say, darker qualities. Knowing this is it a good idea to rouse them with political hubs?
