Week 13 - What's Old is New Again

Remakes - we see them more and more frequently. Taking an old movie and completely reshooting it with a new cast, new effects, new styles and even new genres can be a hit or miss proposition. This summer we've seen several remakes already, from The Stepword Wives (original and remake) to The Manchurian Candidate (original and remake), plus there's even an Alfie remake in production (original and remake).

1) What is your favorite remake of an older film? Did it actually improve on the original?

2) What remake was handled so poorly even if the original was not great it would've seemed Oscar-worthy?

3) Are there any classic films you feel would cause the fabric of space/time to rip apart were a remake made of it?

BONUS) What film would you most like to see remade, and what would be your dream cast?
