Worst Movie Remakes

Here's the list. I think #16 must be a mistake, or maybe just an example of further persecution.

Hat tip to John Duke.

I don't think anyone on earth, or even on Mars, could really actually argue against any of these pic picks. O, look at that; "pic picks." Fantastic. Let's do a remake of this comment.

How can anyone look at that great picture of Paris Hilton expressing electrifying grief and fear and say she is nothing but a slut? She's also a good actress. And a photogenic fashion model. And a riveter of global human attention. She is Princess Diana reborn in a new and exciting, sometimes naked, package. How American! How commercial! She has taken shallowness and made a science out of it! She is the Anti Andy Warhol !....Only SHE will be famous! She will steal everyone else's fifteen minutes! She is pure genius!!! And a slut. But a brilliant, way above average one. That's almost gotta actually negate the sluttage. I would think.

Eh. THE HAUNTING (newer) needs to be on this list, in a way that HOUSE OF WAX probably doesn't need to be.

Once again jj and Todd have nailed it.

How about Casablanca and Stagecoach? Wasn't there a High Noon remake, too?

I don't think the remake of The Ladykillers should be on this list, though I'll concede it can't hold a candle to the original. The scene where J.K. Simmons is the technical assistant on the dog food commercial is awfully damn funny. I'd replace it with Todd's suggestion, The Haunting, or the remake of 13 Ghosts.

Steve Martin is becoming the King of Bad Remakes. He is doing another Pink Panther movie now, as if the first one wasn't bad enough.

Not that his remake of Cheaper By the Dozen was any better than that or The Out of Towners.

And where is The In-Laws? Or The Heartbreak Kid?

Another Pink Panther movie? Noooooooooooooo!

Come on, where's THE DESPERATE HOURS? DIABOLIQUE? The seventies version of KING KONG?
