MOVIE LIST: Remakes

Pay it
Forward

25 value Virtual OK

List of 20+ quality movie remakes.

I think people treat the announcement of remakes harshly without even giving them a chance. I've made a list of remakes that do the original justice or far outpass it. Some bring the story to a new generation or to a world-wide audience. Some edify the story by making it a musical. Most are based on novels or plays anyway. Some are based on tv shows.

None of these remakes are based on "classics". So nothing by Shakespeare and Jane Austen or the like, or retellings of "Alice in wonderland," "Peter Pan," and fairy tales on this list. It would be enormous if I added them, too.

Here's an example that I didn't put on the list:

Swiss Family Robinson (1960) remake of the 1940 movie of the same name. Here's the twist: Swiss Family Robinson inspired the 1960s TV show Lost in Space which had it's own film remake in 1998 (an example of a BAD remake).

P.S. I would like to add that I have not seen half of the originals, but I have seen all of the remakes. ;) I only put remakes that I would watch again (there are definitely a lot more than on this list).

Also, the Lord of the Rings is a REMAKE! *mike drop*

Check out my other lists: Archaeology, Time Travel, Remakes, Weddings, and Twins. More lists coming soon. I also make custom lists.

Training & Qualifications


I have seen 1800+ movies. I love finding clusters of similar movies. I picked "remakes" for the theme because I know not all remakes are bad.

I will not recommend anything I haven't seen; nor recommend something I wouldn't be willing to watch again.

Availability & Preferences


I try to respond quickly (during waking hours obviously).

Trading Preference: Pay it forward – pass on the good deed!

About Janice Eckworth

I have seen 1900+ movies. I have made several services in the form of MOVIE LISTS. One of my favorite services is movie recommendations. I know how hard it can be to find something fun. I will not rec...ommend anything I haven't seen; nor recommend something I wouldn't be willing to watch again. I teach music lessons (in-person and online via Zoom videochat). I play piano, ukulele, harp, and kalimba. I love arranging music to fit the range and qualities of each instrument. I recently got an accordion! I'm also a parent of two boys (8 and 6). They are clever, happy little boys, so I'm very lucky. They are also both on the autism spectrum.show more
