It's the Best & Worst Movie Remake Blogfest, minions. Woot! Hosted by Alex Cavanaugh, Stephen Tremp, Livia Peterson, and Al Diaz, this awesome topic is one that stumped me. How sad is that? I even researched it and came up with this recent post Entertainment Weekly did last month. They asked readers to vote on this same topic. The article, "Best/Worst Movie Remakes: You Voted, We Say..." lists so fun winners and losers here. Check it out. Sadly, none of the movies they listed were on my radar. I ended up choosing the ones I could recall quickly.
Best Remake: Buffy the Vampire Slayer! Most people didn't care for the original, but I kinda liked it. Remember the Vamp DJ who took over the turntables? Or Pee Wee Herman? Yeah, I liked it. Originally debuted in 1992, BVS, a crazy teen-take movie had little impact but not a bad following. Did you see the original?
|Wild Wild West: 1999 Remake|
Best Song Remake: Wild Horses, originally written and preformed by The Rolling Stones back in the early 70's was and still is a great song. Fast forward two decades later and The Sundays remade the classic and boom...another hit. Love this song. Hope you do too.
Have a great weekend.
