MOVIES THAT NEED TO BE REMADE

New movies! Old movies! B-movies! Discuss discuss discuss!!!

I'd love to see some real, big-budget, serious, NEW adaptations of some of Jules Verne's stories. Specifically Around The World In 80 Days and Journey To The Center Of The Earth. Set them in the 19th century, with no trace of Jackie Chan or Pat Boone or anything else gimmicky and stupid. Do them justice, dammit.

Vampire Circus

FYI-The hot open-shirted vamp boy in the beginning? Robin Sachs, who played Ethan Raynes on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer".

And I really hope Hammer does remake this...reeeaaalllyyy hope.


Vampire Circus is good stuff; I saw it on TV (edited and with commercials, unfortunately) many years ago. I'd be more than happy to get an R1 DVD and say pffft! to a remake.

I made it almost the whole way through that post before I started simultaneously giggling and weeping.

Giggling because of how cool these could be.

Weeping because I know that if these were re-made, they'd end up gimmicky and stupid.

this one http://icons.imdb.com/title/tt0235068/usercomments

what is so funny about this is that my own comments would match up with most of those on there, even age, since i was about 9-10 when i first saw this, and it scared the shit out of me. the sound that monster made sent chills down my spine. i think my little brother and i were unable to get to sleep for quite a while the night we saw this movie.

Interesting.




Hey, as long as we're on the TV-movie tip...


The True Story of Frankenstein (Though I doubt it would be as cool as the original)

Mazes & Monsters (There's a cool concept lurking here that could be played out better IMO)

The Last Wave (I'm not 100% sure if this was TV...or maybe it was only on TV in the US. Either way this would be an interesting re-make)


Gosh, has Hollywood ever mined a TV-movie for a theatrical yet? I can't think of any instance off the top of my head.

you know, Wonka, all it would take is one old TV movie to be remade and make money, and then we would see a slew of them as studios rushed to mine the cheap source of material.

Well, they're making "High School Musical 3" as a theatrical release.

And after that, it's going to go downhill from there...

Yanno, a REAL remake of The Night Stalker TV series(or sequel since McGavin cant really be replaced) would be awesome.

Was there really a bigger disappointment as a child when you fall in love with a show, watch it devotedly week after week at that same time and channel and then one day it just isn't there anymore? I think the closest I came to that as an adult is when that bitch Hammer over at Sci-Fi cancelled MST3K. That network sure has gone to shit.

I want to see a decent, mainly directed by Jackson, remake of THEM!.

Who the fuck do I have to call in Hollywood to order that film?

Maybe I should spam call blockbuster? or perhaps anyone whose name ends in ...Stein or ....Sky?

Everyone wants to see a bug film like Starship Troopers but with the same depth. THEM! is the only one to fill that gap (ignoring the many bug films before and after but THEM! but it was surely the best).

Easily my favorite sci fi flick as a child until Star Wars. Would you want it played seriously or in more of an 8 Legged Freaks vein?

I would have slit my own wrists if it turned out like '8 legged freaks'....and possibly most zoners would have wanted that. ;)

Them! Is a deadly SERIOUS film....No question. No doubt. No OTHER!

Did I mention it IS one of the best films ever made?

Sod the whole 'giant ants...argh!', the whole military tactics plot completely suprised me when I first saw it.

Expected a giant monster movie flick...what I got was an incrediblt story of survival through many different social stratas....or maybe I just read too much into it.

It could certainly be a better modern day 'war of the worlds'.

But please....No Mos Def (I'm remembering 16 blocks for some reason *pukes*)

I could be wrong....BUT....I think you like this film.

But yeah, I love this film, too. I remember about 6-7 years ago introducing it to my ex-GF, and she loved it. Are there any SE DVDs out for it that you know of? Seriously, this needs to be done. Now.

*raises feet and hands in the air*

Seconded, Thirded and Fourthed.

Such a great Sci-fi film.

There need to be more like this....and 'Children of men'.

Give us a dilema and see how we deal....pure quality!

Hmm, after finding out Edgar Wright is a Phan, I'm quite tempted to bug him about approaching Fox to direct that remake... Oh man, that would be sweet.

Plus, the fact he knows a lot of britcom people would make it even better...

It's one of the big "real" sci-fi films of the 50's along with The Thing from Another World, The Day the Earth Stood Still and Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

THEM! feels real from the military response, the scope of the story etc in much the same way Close Encounters has that "real" world vibe throughout.
I highly recommend it.

Anyone mentioned Dreamscape yet? I just watched the majority of it the other night on cable, and... it's not good. I remember it being scary as hell when I was a kid. The thing is, there are some great ideas in there that just couldn't be fully realized with the effects of the day. I think the creepiest part in the entire thing was Dennis Quaid and the little kid running down the rickety stairway into the darkness in the nightmare. Very cool.

You know, I think Enemy Mine could be remade and, especially now with all the terrorism crap and anti-American sentiment, anti-religious, anti-everything, that a movie about tolerance and other cultures (in a sci-fi survival movie vein) could be interesting.

Huh? I was agreeing with you that Red Dawn again would be cool and perhaps timely in a few years. Especially considering Russia's consistent back peddling away from "Democracy" over the last eight years under Putin.

One movie I'd absolutely kill to remake or see remade well is Valley of Gwangi. For those uninitiated, it's about a group of cowboys who capture an Allosaurus, take it to a circus, where it breaks loose and wreaks havoc.

Simple concept. We need more good giant monsters on the loose movies. It would probably have a medium budget and would definitely be a winner.

More like a total re-imagining.....I wouldn't want a remake of TPM


Now that Galactica is ending maybe Lucas will try to court Ron Moore & Co. for the SW TV show.

I'd personally like to see 'Star Wars: The Adventures of Ackmena' myself

The starwars prequels should all be remade because ,in my opinion, they should've shown korriban, Jango Fett shouldn't die like a pussy and we should actually see the Clone Wars and see the actual jedi being killed by other Sith. Anyone have any thoughts?

Well, I've had trouble trying to find this film on DVD, but this 1973 thriller called "Wicked, Wicked" about a young repairman at a hotel who's been killing blonde women due to some very bad childhood memories. It was being hyped up with "Duo-Vision", where some parts where shot in split-screen.

I mention it because the lead looks a hell of a lot like Lucas Grabeel (The ghey but not ghey kid from "High School Musical") and I thought..."Wouldn't it be great to see him in a role other than a guy of questionable sexuality or the dork?"

It could work, it couldn't...but it'd be interesting.

Did you see the Vanity Fair Hitchock photo shoot that came out in december... i thought of the exact same thing!

The thing is, there are some great ideas in there that just couldn't be fully realized with the effects of the day. I think the creepiest part in the entire thing was Dennis Quaid and the little kid running down the rickety stairway into the darkness in the nightmare. Very cool.


did you ever see the poster art for that?

Wonder who they were trying to rip off?

Re: MOVIES THAT NEED TO BE REMADE

Postby Zeeboe on Fri Aug 08, 2008 10:14 am

I don't think the following films need to be remade, but I think it would be cool if they were.

1. Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! - It'd be great if QT wrote and directed it.

2. Network - That movie needs to be remade now more then ever. Michael Moore should write and direct, or least have some kind of role in the creative process.

3. Hitch Hike - Very under-rated and unknown film, and it's too good of a story to be forgotten or never known about. Not sure who I'd trust to direct it.

4. The Elephant Man - I'm thinking about another Tim Burton/Johnny Depp combo. I realize John Merrick was a young man when he died, but make-up, special effects and just brillant acting from Depp could make him appear young on screen. I also think it'd be cool if the film was more accurate to Merrick's life because the 1980 version added in some things that were untrue for dramatic purposes.

"Soldier", a wasted opportunity if there ever was one, could be a badass flick in the right hands if it were to be remade.

Kurt Russel should be the lead again.He was one of the few good things in the "original" Soldier....
