Most Unnecessary Movie Remakes


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Point Break (2015)

All the charisma and charm the original had got just about completely sucked out of this borefest. The only saving grace for me is the real stuntwork, but that just makes me think this should've just been a straight Xtreme Sports movie or documentary instead.

22 Clash of the Titans (2010)

I guess they were trying to remake the original because it looks pretty cheesy (the stop motion effects still don't hold up). but could they have at least tried to make it as good as the original or even better than the original?

Harryhausen's meticulously crafted stop motion creatures would dominate this Cgi mess of a film any day. - TheRiceKing

23 The Haunting (1999)
24 Bewitched (2005)
25 The Tourist (2010)
26 My Bloody Valentine (2009)
27 101 Dalmatians (1996)

This movie does not have the charm of the original. Glenn Close ruins Cruella de Vil with her overacting. The dogs don't talk and the human characters take up too much of the screen time. It's like Home Alone with dogs.

28 Charlotte's Web (2006)

Bland remake. Bad acting. Lack of emotion. The original had songs show all emotion.

29 RoboCop (2014)

The original was an awesome movie featuring a new cyborg policeman who fights corporate greed, corruption and crime. The new one should be called Cyborg Dad because it talks about his family more.

30 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)
31 Sabrina
32 Ben-Hur

This movie is such a classic, why remake it? - SplashMoun10

33 Star Wars: The Force Awakens
34 Ghostbusters (2016)
35 Ben-Hur (2016)
36 The Parent Trap (1998)
37 The Mummy (2017)
