One reason Total Recall didn't work is because there was no lesbo scene with Biel and Beckinsale.

In all Superhero movies in History *Fant4stic* is the worst remake. It just made the 2000s movies look like Epic

Actually as per my experience *Teen Titans Go* animated series in Cartoon Network is *the Worst Remake* in my whole life

...I get that this is complaining about the movie version, but some of these changes like total recall are based closer to the original book.

The planet of the apes remake made sense, the passed though a time vortex and changed earths distance past. When he returns though it he arrives at the changed earth in the present.

Hollywood is just out of fresh ideas. They have to have at least 2 sex scenes, lots of cursing, and Socialism. Other than that, all they can do is [poorly] rehash what has already been done. Sad.

The movie "Planet of the apes" with Charlton Heston is an adaptation of the book. And the ending in the book is the same as the ending in the Tim Burton version, which is another adaptation, not a remake. So this shouldn't be on the list. But the Charlon Heston ending should be in "Top 10 smart changes in book adaptations"

How in the mother of flip do you do a list of worst changes in remakes and not include the new Be Prepared from The Lion King 2019?

Lord of the Flies, first in black and white with some of the most memorable scenes in film. The second, a US version in colour which runs like an American kids sit com. The Ladykillers - really! How did they think they could remake a film which starred Alec Guinness, Peter Sellers, Herbert Lom, Cecil Parker, Danny Green and the adorable Katie Johnson. Must've been off their rockers!

The first Ben Hur did not win the Oscars just for effects, it also won them for costumes, music, acting, screenplay, and others. Relying on CGI alone to save your movie is lazy.

Gojira is the creature's REAL name, his Japanese name, and it's derived from the Japenese words for Gorilla "Gorira" and Whale "Kujira". Godzilla is the Westernised version of the name, but it has no definition.

I just realized that 1997 Godzilla also had really bad special effects ... Like, they're the sort of effects you would see in a horror movie with a very small budget.
Nycot 18 gün önce
Godzilla 1997 should not be considered as a "Remake" of Godzilla. Rather, the movie, and the monster in it (who's name has been changed to "Zilla" by fans) should not be associated with Godzilla, and should be treated as a separate monster altogether.

Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka was just plain creepy, and that extra backstory tacked on at the end - which was NOT in the book - was completely unnecessary. Tim Burton has given us a lot of wonderful original movies, why did he have to remake something that should have been left alone?

The first Godzilla Movie was a metaphor for the fear of nuclear weapons but it was also inspired by the Movie The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms which could maybe explain why the Zilla Movie took place in New York.

1998 Godzilla should've been number one. That movie was less Godzilla and more The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms

THE all-time " WORST REMAKE, EVER " : Any attempt to remake Willian Wyler's all-time classic " Ben Hur" -----------the remake was so bad, it was almost ---------sadly----------funny. ----------LEAVE CLASSICS ALONE !! ---------------------WolfSky9, 72 y/o
Wolfsky9 23 gün önce
The '26 version of " Ben-Hur" was the most honored film of the silent era. It was also the most expensive. ----------The '59 Wyler version cost MGM 15 million , the most expensive film ever, to that date. ----------In today's money that's well over $225 million. ----------The chariot race alone, took a year to prepare, & 6 full months to film. Charlton Heston spent 18 months learning how to drive a full 4-horse chariot. --------------------------WolfSky9, 72 y/o

You do know roald dalh disliked gene wilder as willy wonka, making him too serious. When you look at it that way, it is gene wilder who put his own spin on the character. Gene wilder looked better playing willy wonka, but johnny depp had the better character. Also the oompa loompas in 2005 the looked like actual small human beings, while in 1971 they looked like gingerbreadmen come to life by some experiment.

Agree with Godzilla totally even though I liked the 1998 movie. Nothing can compare to Charlton Heston and the ending of Planet of the Apes. I actually liked the updated Total Recall movie drawing upon pieces from the original.
CHilla415 25 gün önce
It's over 50 years old so it's not a terrible idea to give it an update? Umm... no. Just since something is old doesn't mean it NEEDS to be re-done. Fuck that excuse. Be original.

I understand when you talk about Planet of the Apes being a terrible remake of the original movie with Charlton Heston but if you've ever read the original book Planet of the Apes at the end of the book The Astronaut somehow gets the spaceship to fly and he thinks he's flown away from the Planet of the Apes only to crash land on Earth between his original time and the time of the Planet of the Apes only to be picked up by apes driving military vehicles. So, you can say the newer version of Planet of the Apes although a terrible movie, has a script more true to the book then the original Charlton Heston Planet of the Apes.

Number 6 didn't ignore the title. The original(alt) ending, he realized precisely what the title meant. But the generic 'sacrifice himself to be a hero' ending being chosen by the studio cause they didn't understand why the original ending was what it was, was what ruined it. The Karate Kid remake was actually pretty good and was universally well received. So I wouldn't call it 'hated' outside of a few people going 'Why not call it the 'kung fu' kid?" but the movie came out and it was good enough that people didn't mind it. And as Jackie Chan is in it, he shouldn't be teaching anything less than Kung-Fu :D
Zilla is not another version of Godzilla, Godzilla in name only.

If I remember correctly, the Total Recall remake was much closer to the original source material, a short story by Philip K. Dick.
