Top Ten Worst Movie Remakes

Over the past two decades, remaking movies has really taken off. Thing is, some movies weren't made to be re-made. This is the top ten worst movie remakes.

The Contenders: Page 3

41 The Day the Earth Stood Still

I think the only reason people went and saw this movie is because it had Keanu Reeves' name on the front cover.

42 The Producers
43 Taxi
44 City of Angels
45 Dinner for Schmucks
46 Bangkok Dangerous
47 Alice in Wonderland

It's like Tim Burton took the original Alice and wonderland, sucked all the imagination, color, and fun insanity, and just replaced it with a dull generic prophecy story

The remake with Johnny Depp is just so odd and doesn't make any sense. It definitely could have been better.

Johnny Depp and Helena Botham Carter were too over-the-top and weird and everyone else, ESPECIALLY Alice sounded so uninterested

48 The Karate Kid

Well, this version actually wasn't half bad at all. And although the original will always be a classic even to this very day and that this version is not AS good as the original version, it again wasn't half bad and seemed to match to more modern times now and they used a couple of my favorite actors such as Jackie Chan and Jayden Smith.

49 The Last House on the Left


50 Clash of the Titans
51 The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
52 Wrath of the Titans
53 Dark Shadows
54 Oldboy
55 The Amityville Horror
56 Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

I actually love this movie! And I can't think of a better Grinch than Jim Carrey. He's so funny!

Aside from the Grinch's makeup, this entire movie, (the who's, the town, the lighting, and the colors) is so ugly looking

This movie is just an awkward, unpleasant experience

57 Ocean's Eleven

I mean come ON! The original "Rat Pack" version could be sloppy enough to make Plan 9 From Outer Space look like a Spielberg production and it would still have one truly incalculable edge on the more recent one, namely, it would still in no way shape or form involve that poster-child of Hollywood nepotism, George Clooney.

58 The Miracle Worker
59 The Hunchback of Notre Dame II

Horrible animation; the songs weren't as good.

60 Poltergeist

The unbelievable, artificial, fake, unrealistic family in this failed attempt at a remake to a classic film was just trying at a failed attempt to mimic a dysfunctional family in real life and fictional ones in other movies. I can't believe that one of the horrible actors actually said in an interview on a talk show, though I don't know which, had said that this remake was supposed to be a KIDS MOVIE and that it was supposed to be a rated PG-13 Movie. First of all this movie just had no potential whatever and just went down the pales all the way, there was no connection of reality to it, everything about this movie such as the feel and the look was just head ache causing, nauseating, and just made a person want to fall asleep for watching it. Second of all, This movie wasn't meant to be a kids movie at a PG-13 Rating, it was meant to be anywhere between an adult and a full family oriented movie at rated R. How dare they take an adult - family oriented supernatural paranormal classic ...more

This movie was just so horrible and very painful to watch. This was just just so terrible and torturing (And not the good kind of torture either.). This movie would have been better if it was haunted down by the original but it clearly wasn't at all. Also, the kids in this version look like they're not even the unbelievable couples real blood relative biological children. They look like they were all adopted and I can't even imagine the couple in this film to be an actual couple in real life. The effects in this version were garbage and fake unbelievable and just an overly CGI usage of CRAP! Not to mention that this film was produced and directed by a producer and director who never had ANY kind of experience of doing an actual enjoyable-to-watch type of movie and are anywhere close to the directors and producers of the original movie, who were also known for producing and directing acetal good other movies as well, Especially if it was a horror movie. I will have to say that even all ...more

Everything about this movie going from the opening, setting, characters, acting, conflict, special effects, the whole plot and the entire storyline was just fake, unbelievable, fake, plastic and cheap as hell. The ending of this movie was just so horrible that it shouldn't even be considered as a real ending. Stick to your guns people and forget about this piece of crap and watch the original movie from the 1982 version. You'll be glad u did and you'll thank me later for it.

Look, I really like Sam Worthington but come on, do they really expect us to have any emotional attachments to a family that's about as interesting as rocks?
