Remakes – most of them suck. Now and then, one comes along that is as good as, if not better, than the original. And after all of the bad ones we’ve endured, we want to know about some good ones.
On November 13, 2017, blog about your favorite remake: movie (or television show into movie and vice versa), song, or book – or all three! Post a YouTube video and links where we can find these treasures. Tell us why THIS remake doesn’t suck!
Here we go!
In general, I am not a fan of remakes. If I've loved the original, I tend to not want to take the chance or trying the remake, because the new one so very rarely lives up to the standard. I can think of very few exceptions...
One of my all-time favourite Remakes is Battlestar Galactica! The remake was different in so many ways from the original - and it was SO GOOD!
For songs, the remake of Simon & Garfunkel's Sound of Silence by Disturbed is amazing. Beautiful, haunting, and oh so powerful.
How about you? Fans of BSG or Sound of Silence? Do you tend to love or hate remakes?
