Best Movie Remakes Of All Time
Here are the best movies which were remakes of older films!
Honorable Mention: Dawn of the Dead
Zack Sndyer's take on the classic zombie film from horror master George A. Romero is a brilliant modernization of the tale. The cast is excellent as a group of survivors hold up in a shopping mall fending off hordes of undead thirsty for human flesh. There's great character dynamics here and the opening sequence is as intense as anything out there. This one also features plenty of comedy along the way. It's a fun movie to pop in anytime and is at the top of my favorite zombie movies ever list.
10. A Fistful of Dollars
Taking Akira Kurosawa's samurai story Yojimbo and turning it into a western was a stroke of genius by spaghetti western auteur Sergio Leone. Catapulting Clint Eastwood to super-stardom and spawning two sequels is what this film is known for, but it's a great film in it's own right. There's plenty of exciting action, excellent character interactions, and a wonderful score. Bringing 16th century Japan to the American west of the 19th century does just enough to set it apart since it's still essentially the same story as the original.
