MONDAY MOVIE MEME
This week Molly and Andy at the Bumbles Blog reflect on movie remakes after seeing an ad for the new remake of Friday The 13th. Most are cringe-inducing but, every now and then a remake is actually as good or better than the original.
Here are some remakes in my opinion that stand up to the originals:
- 3:10 to Yuma (Russell Crowe & Christian Bale)
- Cape Fear (Scorsese!)
- The Fly (Cronenberg directs a young, buff Jeff Goldblum)
- The Out-of-Towners (maybe it isn't better than the original but it has John Cleese)
- The Quiet American (Michael Caine)
