Best Movie RemakesAlexandr
The Top Ten
I've never been able to pinpoint it, but there is something special about this film. Not the story, that is for sure.
The Original of 1933 is really a cult movie. So, I won't say anything about that. As for the 1977 King Kong movie, the Peter Jackson movie is a thousand times better. Naomi Watts is so much better than Jessica Lange. Naomi Watts should have won an Oscar for this movie.
One of the most underrated movies EVER!
This film kicks ass. Wait until you see the exetended edition its probably even more kickass. Peter Jackson forever!V 1 Comment

There are a lot of similarities to the film A Night To Remember (1958) - westofohio
This movie is not a remake - Y2K
My all time favorite movie and my favorite romantic film as well - Szonana
Such a good film. - ParasN2000
Now, Johnny Depp is awesome in this movie, and the soundtrack was amazing Tim Burton stuff (Not nearly as incredible as Edward Scissorhands, Burton's all-time best film, but still cool). However, that doesn't change the fact that the original with Gene Wilder as the title role was infinitely better. The Oompa Loompas seemed more like real people, and not...you know...minions from Despicable Me. Also, there aren't any unnecessary subplots in this film that only serve to stretch the run-time, and Gene Wilder is incredible as Wonka, the most ingeniously subtle performance I've seen my entire life, whereas Johnny Depp (Though, again, is awesome in this movie) is all over the place. However, this film does have a lot of heart and a lot of elements that Roald Dahl lovers like myself will adore, and Freddie Highmore is fantastic as Charlie Bucket. This is a good movie, don't get me wrong, but it's not Edward Scissorhands good.
Although tim burton bombed with his first remake (planet of the apes) he did very well with this remake even if its not as good as the original
Gene wilder was crap in the originals
This is the best movie everrr!V 2 Comments
What's this doing on the list?! It was produced by Michael bay for goodness' sakes!
Along with the Parent Trap has been remade in just about every generation - westofohio
No way that this is better than the Original. Don't tell me that Alec Baldwin is better than Steve McQueen. Kim Bassinger is a good actress but she's not as convincing as Ali McGraw was for that movie. Don't get me wrong, I think that this one is well "re"made and very entertaining to watch but it's not better than the Original.
Masterful character-driven western that vastly transcends the original.
The story is well written and the acting is fantastic. - Shadsilvson11
1 of the very few remakes I like more than the original
Are you kidding? Carrie with Sissy Spacek is a classic. They will never make a Carrie better than the Original.
Worst remake ever!, after that the films were bad ass - westofohio
A Fist Full Of Dollars is a remake of a 1961 Japanese film called Yojimbo, from director Akira Kurosawa - westofohio
This 1967 classic is a remake from what movie? Seems that your list was troll ed. See many Original movies in here or remakes that are certainly not better than the Original.
Not as good as original but very underrated movie
Not even close to being as realistic as the first movie located in urban america
To me it wasn't as believable as the the first film - westofohio
