A Fistful of Remakes
Written by rifflaff_f213uk on February 24, 2022
To many movie fans the term ‘Remake” is a four letter word. Nearly every time a movie studio announces a remake is going into production, the world pauses spinning for a moment as the cinephiles collectively roll their eyes. But what if a remake was good? So good that it matches, or dare we say it, surpasses the original, and stakes its own claim amongst the throngs of classics. This episode, Cory tries to sell Jeff on a few examples of remakes that can stand on their own feet. Unconvinced, Jeff then presents Cory with some remakes that should never have been made. The debate may never be settled, but one truth remains: a good film, whether wholly original or a remake, is worth the watch.
