What a cool line up!
Best Movie Remake – Total Recall
The original was good, but let’s face it, it was an Arnold Schwarzenegger movie.
The remake stared Colin Farrell (love him) and Kate Beckinsale (love her) and included hot fight scenes between the two (love it).
The movie made me want to write science fiction. I wanted to build worlds and create technology and choreograph chase scenes through multi level, maze like hotels. The world created in this movie was inspiring.
Worst Movie Remake – Father of the Bride
Steve Martin is a good actor, but he could not fill the shoes of Mr. Spencer Tracy in this classic role.
And, the original had Elizabeth Taylor as the bride. I can’t even remember who played the bride in the remake.
Spencer Tracy is brilliant. He was nominated for an Oscar for best actor for this role and the movie and the screenplay were also nominated.
Have you seen the new Total Recall? Have you seen the old Father of the Bride? What do you think are some of the best and worst remakes?
