Best Movie Remakes of All Time
"remake" screams "cash cow" in many peoples minds however there have been some extremely good ones in cinema history; arguably better than the original in some cases. This list features the best movie remakes ever chosen for quality.
Some of the movies in this list are not widely known as being remakes and I am sure it wont be long before we start getting remakes of remakes.
Tagedremake List order as defined by john
Cape Fear (1991)Crime Thriller
There is nothing in the dark that isn't there in the light. Except fear.
The original was good but Cape Fear 1991 remake is simply awesome and De Niros' acting is on point.
The Thing (1982)Horror Science Fiction Mystery
Man is The Warmest Place to Hide.
John Carpenter re-imagined the story that was "The Thing from Another World" (1951)
