If you come up with a list of the GREATEST movies of all time, there is going to be a huge section of them that are remakes or adaptations of movies or books or history. The strength (and even the originality) of a story has nothing to do with the actual content, it's how it all comes together.

Francis Ford Coppola
John Carpenter
Steven Spielberg
Alfred Hitchcock
Christopher Nolan
Stanley Kubrick
The Coen Brothers
Scorcese
Tarantino (Reservoir Dogs is actually a remake of a Korean(?) movie)
Sam Mendes

ALL of those directors (which includes many of the greatest directors to have EVER lived) have directed or written remakes/adaptations of other books/movies and these are only the ones I can pull off the top of my head. Some of the most beloved movies of all time (in many different genres) are STRICTLY remakes - I haven't included any adaptations (even graphic novels) in this list, only STRAIGHT remakes.

The Thing
Scarface
The Magnificent Seven
Cape Fear
Invasion of the body snatchers.
The Scent of Woman
The Fly
A Fistful of Dolllars

There are film-makers out there who ONLY make original screen-plays and are extremely good at what they do, but being an adaptation or remake of something else shouldn't automatically preclude a movie from being good, and doesn't automatically make it less creative either.

Never understood the hate that remakes get. Because a remake exists, does it diminish the quality of the original work? If Godfather was remade, would the original suddenly become a second-rate movie? Would Mario Puzo's novel become less relevant? I guess any works by Shakespeare are garbage now since its been remade countless times in nearly every medium available.

Agreed.

The biggest gripes I see are usually:

-There's no creativity in Hollywood.
-Remakes tarnish the legacy of the original.
-Remakes sexually assault someone's childhood.

I think remakes are great. It's fun to see a different spin on a familiar story and they can raise awareness of the original.

The 2030s is an interesting decade to think about. I didn't start really caring about movies until I was about 14-15. Before that, I just watched big blockbusters for fun like any normal kid. Now I'm 24 and hopefully by the time I'm 30 I'll be a father. That's about 2020. By the time my kid really cares about movies he'll be about 14 and we'll be in the 2030s. By then, all of the big actors we look up to today will be old men and women. Daniel Day Lewis, Johnny Depp, George Clooney, and Brad Pitt will all be in their 70s. Robert Deniro, Michael Caine, Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese....they'll either be dead or close to it. Whoever plays James Bond will have been born in the 2000s.



It's weird stuff to think about.

The play Pygmalion, which My Fair Lady is based, had already been adapted to film twice prior to the movie and has since been adapted as the 90s romcom She's All That.
