Are any of these originals even worth the remake? I see the few classics but really most of these originals aren't exactly lighting the world fire.

In cases like Ocean's 11 I think that's sort of the point, the remake was so much better than the original it does make it worthwhile.

The Thing remake surpasses the original but, I mean movies like Red Dawn aren't exactly good to begin with.

Also I thought the new Fright Night was certainly serviceable.

Would The Mummy count as a remake?

Don't get me wrong, I love me some cult classics but cult classics are usually pretty bad.

Should get the Rifftrax commentary. That's how I've been able to get through the Twilight movies. :evil:

To be fair, the original Red Dawn was very much a product of its time. If you didn't watch it when it first came out, you lose a lot of what made it interesting in the first place.

I'll give you Ocean's 11.

I just find remakes really low quality cinema. That and musicals. Remakes of musicals are just the scummiest of scum.

Rocky IV was a product of its time as well, but it's still great. Also it ended the cold war.
