Re: Remake or original???
When I see a movie that I know is a remake, I always try to check out the original as well.
"The Day The Earth Stood Still" comes to mind for me. The original was a masterpiece of creepiness. They didn't have the special effects that we do....and this movie shows that they didn't need them. The remake really showcased Keanu Reeves and showed that he really is a great actor and not just the other half of "Bill and Ted", and the special effects were phenomenal. They were very different movies IMO, and I liked them both equally, but in different ways.
Any horror fans? "I Spit on Your Grave" the original was an absolute classic. The rape scene was particularly brutal....it just seemed to go on and on and on. Not for the faint of heart. The remake was good as well, but it lacked the raw power of the original, IMO.
