    Wow! All of these movies are horrible! Nut I liked 101 Dalmatians. The Wicker Man was just plain dumb.

    ^ Agree. Remaking a Hitchcock movie is pointless, IMO. Why mess with perfection? Same goes for The Truth About Charlie. Remaking an Audrey Hepburn movie practically signs you up to be on a list like this!

    The Truth about Charlie almost made me hate Charade but I just like to forget all about the remake.

    ^ Yeah I can't understand the thinking behind the remake of Psycho.
    The Pink Panther remake was embarrassing to watch :doh:

    I actually thought "Psycho..." when I read the title... :innocent:
    Oh, and I must admit loved the Pink Panther remake. It was hilarious!

    The Ring 2 was such a letdown after the first one was so damn scary.

    i've only ever seen the originals to many of these movies, having heard the remakes were awful. something tells me that the remake of "breathless" w/richard gere was a waste of time after the pleasure of seberg/belmondo.

    also, vadim remade "and god created woman" in the 1980s, and NO one can live up the bardot especially with cheesy 80s styling.
