The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

Exactly, and is a good example (IMO) of a good remake. The original B&W 1950's version is an all time classic. Carpenter's remake with Kurt Russell is well worth a watch and would be a classic all by itself if the original "The Thing from Another World" had never been made. All based upon a longish short story "Who Goes There?". extra DIV

I have to agree with you. John Carpenter's Thing is how you do a remake and IMO he's an outstanding director in his own right.

It's funny how people in Hollywood seem to think that good special effects an/or CGI can make up for a bad story line. Case in point: the old 1930's Wolfman is a classic horror film. The recent remake was visually stunning. The cast was outstanding and the special effects were good...almost too good. But they had to write in a plot twist that wasn't part of the original. This didn't improve the movie, it actually made it stupid. A bad decision for a cheap and easy way out. (If you've seen it you'll know what I'm talking about).

Sometimes, if you're not going to stick with the original story, it's better to leave it alone.

I starred for good list which i mostly agree with apart from Dawn Of The Dead which i thought was decent remake. I was shocked to discover Romero was behind Diary Of The Dead which was just poop.
