Most remakes are not even close to being good as the original; in fact, they’re usually terrible. Studios sometimes tend to think that they can cash in on the popularity of historically good films and make equally successful good ones. However, while not always true, it does hold for these five films.
1. "War of the Worlds"
A 3-D comedy remake of the 1978 film of the same name, "Piranha 3-D" has an ensemble cast to its name with notables such as Steven McQueen, Elisabeth Shue, Richard Dreyfuss, Jessica Szohr, and Eli Roth. Both a commercial and critical success, the film navigates the lives of humans after sudden underwater tremors liberate prehistoric man-eating fish.
4. "Peter Pan"
plotline, 2003’s "Peter Pan" does not stray from the standards that its high-quality predecessors have set. Starring Jason Isaacs, Lynn Redgrave and directed by PJ Hogan.
Loosely based on the film "12 Angry Men," "12" is psychologically compelling, like the original, but has an authentic Russian feel to it. A film about prejudice and stereotypes, the film documents the story of a boy who is put on trial for murdering his adoptive fathers. The jurors, markedly racist, must decide the boy’s fate. This one is bound to keep you on the couch for the entire 159 minutes.
