1 Invasion of the Body Snatchers

Original was great but 1978 version was better, creepier and more interesting - Alexandr

Superb acting from Eric Bana. - Alexandr

3 Ben Hur
4 The Birdcage
5 The Shadow
6 Scarface

Al Pacino shines as always - Alexandr

7 Village of the Damned
8 The Fly

And this one was definitely better. Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis did a great job - Alexandr

9 The Thing

This remake is pure brilliance - Alexandr

10 King Kong

Peter Jackson not only adds much better special effects and more intense scenes on the island (ie pit scene), but also adds an interesting aspect to the story - that the girl realizes Kong's humanity and tries to save him. This makes for a much more compelling story. - ColinH

This film should be in the toptens, its got great CGI, great story and Jack Black! Please please please this must be rated higher
