Three Movies That Really Should Be Remade
Hollywood bores us with its second-rate redundancies, but these films deserve to see the light of day again
Remakes are not a bad idea, in theory. Some of the best movies around have been remakes, including such classics as “Ben-Hur.” However, like a great many things, Hollywood usually does it completely wrong.
One golden rule should be applied to all remakes and reboots before filming commences: “Don’t fix what ain’t broken.” Living by this rule, Hollywood studios could avoid underachievers like “CHiPs,” “Baywatch,” and 2005’s “King Kong.”
The only reason a remake should happen is if it is going to improve upon the original property, rather than simply live in its shadow and cash in on the curious ticket buyers looking to see what has happened to their favorite brand.
