Most Wanted and Hated SciFi Movie Remakes
« on: January 10, 2006, 04:57:53 pm »

1) What SciFi movie or series of movies, do you think most needed a remake, but never got one?

2) What SciFi movie remake (or remakes that formed their own series,) do you most want to erase from existence or reremake?

(Note that I said movies, so BSG doesn't count.)

Personally, I think the best way to honor movies is by NOT remaking them.
Therefore, I nominate Forbidden Planet to NOT be remade.
Thank you. Grin

I might agree with you except for one remake that gives hope to the entire concept of remakes (which is good, since they're all hollywood makes anymore.)

The '82 remake of The Thing.

Original Version: Frozen space dude wakes up, gets electrocuted.

Remade Version: Scariest movie of all time. It taps into just about every human fear, and does so in a believable way. I could write many paragraphs on it, but I think it speaks for itself.


As for the worst remake, I'd say that just about every other SciFi movie remake ties for this place.
