Remake-o-rama

If you're like us, every time you hear of a movie from our childhood being remade, you practically break out in hives.

You know it's gonna suck, you know it's gonna be all modernized up with super special effects and a smartass script and it's going to lose all the goofy, ugly charm that made us love it. "Bad News Bears," anyone? And that was even one of the better remakes!

Here's one man's list of the Top 10 Gen X remade films of this decade.
Hmm, I don't really think films from the 1990s should qualify, do you? And it's not like "Star Wars" was remade ... they just piled more sequels onto the gravy train. "Planet of the Apes," though not as cheesy as our beloved original, was actually an acceptable remake, in my judgment. (Via JenX67)
And speaking of remakes...if you can find them, maybe you can hire "The A-Team" remake. Or, you know, not.
Here's that film's new trailer, but you know, I will always miss the original credits. And the original Mr T. (The "Family Guy" parody was pretty right on, though.)
