Movies That Were Better Than Their Remakes


The Top Ten

1 Psycho

I can agree with this one. I saw the trailer for Psycho II and it looked horrible compared to the first movie. Yes the first movie's trailer was rubbish too, but at least the movie was pretty good. - Anonymousxcxc

2 The Karate Kid

I LOVED these movies when I went through my karate phase and took martial arts. - RockFashionista

The remake was good but this was better

3 Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory

Not bad, what happens is that the only good parts are the Johnny Depp

4 Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

Why is this on here twice?

5 A Nightmare on Elm Street
6 Ringu

The original is better than Ringu and The Ring, because I have to see her well regarded

7 When a Stranger Calls
8 Miracle on 34th Street
9 Robocop
10 Planet of the Apes

The Contenders

11 Clash of the Titans (1981)

I liked this one as a kid, but the remake is crap!

12 Rollerball
13 The Great Gatsby

The sex scenes are spectacular so shut up

14 Evil Dead

Not bad, what happens is that the first was good in all languages
