In Episode 42, our Top 6 list is about movies we’d like to see remade. Normally we scratch our heads and roll our eyes when a new remake is announced, because Hollywood tends to remake movies that are already great and successful. What they should be doing is remaking movies that had great ideas but weren’t executed as well as they could have been. There’s no need to remake a perfect movie, but every reason to try to regain lost potential.
