Most of the movies we see today are remakes from old movies. A lot of those movies weren’t what you’d call popular so a lot of the movies may not seem like remakes. I truly consider this time era of movies to be the dark ages because of Hollywood’s lack of imagination. The technical advances are epic and the acting quality is MUCH better but an original movie these days is rare at best.
I have to admit I usually like the remakes better than the originals in some cases. Some people are so nostalgic about movies it’s unreal, they’ll whine and complain about the original being so much better and how they’re ruining a classic. I’m not that guy, that’s not my gripe at all. My gripe is the lack of vision and originality. It’s simpler to remake something to make it better than it is to write an original script and run with it.
Let’s have a look at some of the fairly recent remakes.
