I'm not big on remakes and sequels and such, but I thought this would be a good pad for putting down the shows you think could have been better.

I'll go with the TV movie "The Warriors." It's pretty to look at, but I thought the movie was rather weak.

Tai-Pan.

I so want a mini-series for this tale. I loved it's follow-up Noble House and believe they could do the same for Tai-Pan with more time to spin the yarn properly.

BRIGADOON

The MGM version was all on sound stages, with mediocre effects.

This already happened in 2009

The film was a huge success.

I wouldn't mind seeing a remake of White Zombie. There was one in development a few years ago, but it was stalled by some rights issues. The original hasn't aged too well, although it still maintains a spooky atmosphere and nice cinematography. But I think a remake could be pretty good, and I'd welcome a return to the original slave-worker zombie. The more popular flesh-eating zombies mostly just bore me these days.

Hellraiser. If they are doing pointless low budget sequels anyway, why not remake it with a proper budget, cast, director... The original isn't flawless (aside from the score) so it could benefit from an update and expand on the mythos.

"Logan's run". That film should be remade every 10 years as a warning because the obsession of the Western world with all things youth is pathetic, destructive, stupid and irritating. The least interesting segment of the human race is getting all the attention and air time, and it has to stop. "Logan's run" is well suited an analogy to point out the dangerous sides of society's unfounded longing for being that phase in a life where the human animal has its head furthest up its arse.

Bad movies should be remade as good movies. Good movies should not be remade as bad movies.

Huh? What does your comments have to do with my desire to see a better more faithful reboot of the franchise?

Its a tv- movie - but grade A - that deserves a 1st class big screen remake -

THE LEGEND OF LIZZIE BORDEN

I liked the James Bast treatment a lot as well as Lizzie Montgomery as LB but some of the facts are wrong and more detail is needed- so a rewrite or rethink of the whole lizzie borden story and trial would have to be done, especially whether she was guilty or not - the tv version was pretty clear on her guilt/innocence - but there are many possible scenarios . A more ambiguous resolution that might suggest more than one possibilty , leaving it up to the viewer to decide , would be fascinating.

I recently read that there are facts/claims that soon after her acquittal in 1893 , Lizzie took a trip to the Chicago Columbian Exposition - which would make a spectacular place to end the story - in the fabled White City .

First Blood - I know a lot of people have a soft spot for this movie (and my oh my - that score), but the source novel is rich pickings for a remake in the context of Afghanistan etc.

I've been waiting in vain since 1964, for a remake of MY FAIR LADY. I thought it was going to happen, recently; but, that seems to have disappeared. I'd like a remake that restores some of the energy that was inherent in the original stage production. Something a bit more cinematic with a use of some location photography. Hire a director who knows something about musicals and the art of cinema.

I liked the movie ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST; it was well-done. However, this
movie didn’t film a lot of novel. It only took parts of the novel. I’d like to see a remake of
Kesey’s novel where the movie is narrated by the Chief and where his story is as
significant as McMurphy’s story. They are intertwined. Too much of the first movie
dropped the social commentaries and just focused on McMurphy’s battle with
Nurse Ratched. I’d like to see the NOVEL turned into a film.

TO PHILLY SON- Well les Miserbles did do well, so maybe there is hope, by the way, how come the theatre talk thread is laying low, the history of theatre is too rich and vast for such a thread to die.

The Arthuriad? The Trojan War? Here are two subjects that have inspired countless volumes of great literature and drama over the centuries, yet Hollywood has yet to make a decent film from either source.

The Guns of Navarone.

The original was great. So make it up to date with improved effects(lord those toy cannons falling into the bathtub looked fake even back then) and get together another great cast.
