Are there any remakes you have seen that you found more enjoyable than the original version? Is there such a thing? I can't think of any film in which the remake is significantly better than the original.
Here's a list of remakes in the works:
Godzilla (2012) - Warner Bros. wants to reboot the Godzilla story that apparently was present in the 1998 film with this time staying closer to its roots, which I think means he will be attacking other monsters while simultaneously destroying Tokyo (which will likely be portrayed by New York).
Total Recall (TBA) - Colin Farrell has taken Governator's role. I will be disappointed if I don't get to see tri-boob in 3D.
Wizard of Oz (TBA) - Not much info on this, but I thought it was worth mentioning that there is WB's remake, a prequel being made by Disney, an animated sequel by summertime entertainment, and Universal's "Wicked" which is the origin story for the Wicked Witch of the West.
Hellraiser (TBA) - Every horror movie gets remade.
RoboCop (TBA) - This film has Darren Aronofsky directing, so it might end up being pretty good.
Spider-Man Reboot (2012) - Peter Parker all over again, now younger and more awkwardness to relate to.
The Crow (TBA) - A remake of the 1994 original. Since all the sequels featured different characters they were kind of all remakes anyways.
Footloose (2011) - Baconless, as far as I know.
Conan the Barbarian (2011) - Jason Mamoa replaces Schwarzenegger and the film promises to be more faithful to Robert E. Howard's original creation.
Short Circuit (TBA) - Johnny 5 is alive!!!
