Throughout the years they made a lot of movie remakes. Especially recently filmmakers decide to remake every single movie. Even if they don't need it. Like "Halloween" and " ANightmare on Elm Street". Movies that didn't need a remake. But sometimes directors do the right thing. I made a list of remakes that were actually good and maybe even better than the original. Here they are:
[The Ring] A strong horror movie that always gives me the creeps. Naomi Watts has a beautiful mother role in it and she does everything to unravel the mystery behind that weird videotape.
[Cape Fear] A very good thriller. Robert De Niro plays his rol as th obsessive Max Cady very convincing.
[The Departed] I love this movie. Perfect casting, an intriging story and a strong ending.
[King Kong} This is one of those movies that needed a remake. Peter Jackson made a masterpiece, with again Naomi Watts in it (she's in a lot of remakes). Great action, beautiful scenes between Kong and Ann and a heartripping ending.
[Scarface] A couple of years ago I didn't even know it was a remake. Brian De Palma did a great job and Al Pacino created an iconic character with even so iconic lines ("Say hello to my little friend")
[Pride & Prejudice] The best story Jane Austen has written and this is also it's best movie. Keira Knightley as Elizabeth Bennett, awesome! She even got an Oscar nod for it.
[True Lies] Not to be taken very seriously, but that's what makes this movie so good. It has great humor and Jamie Lee Curtis and Arnold Schwarzenegger make a suprisingly fantastic duo.
