Everyone keeps bitching, talking about "omg they r remaking evrything!!!11! why?!!1!!?1", so I'd like some of you guys to try and discuss the remakes you thought were better than the original.
For me it's gotta be Peter Jackson's King Kong, and not just because of the big special effects, even though those helped. I've seen both movies, and the remake just has much more than the original in terms of substance. In the original, there was no reason to care for the characters, if you could call them characters. They were basically there so that there was a reason for people the audience can relate to can meet Kong. In the remake, the love story is fleshed out, and the Jack Black character's greed was a major part of the story. Even the side characters were given more personality than the original, and you cared when some of them were killed.
Even King Kong is interesting in the movie. He has real feelings, despite being a CG character, he seems like a real giant monkey that can kill dinosaurs. Plus, the creature designs is worlds better than the original, and the fight scenes were pretty cool and imaginative.
Also, I liked the 1987 Little Shop of Horrors better than the old one(which was crap).
