When Hollywood runs out of ideas, they remake older films. Sometimes this works, and sometimes it fails miserably.
The Best Remake: Poseidon
Poseidon is an adventure to watch! It keeps you on the edge-of-your-seat and is a thrill ride. I enjoyed Poseidon immensely and it's highly recommended.
The Worst Remake: Footloose
Footloose is very predictable and derivative. The performances aren't pleasant to watch. I did not enjoy this film at all. I don't recommend Footloose unless you're passionate about dance.
The Underwhelming Remake: The Great Gatsby
The Great Gatsby remake by Baz Luhrmann is currently in theatres. I did not see the 1974 adaptation and perhaps, I'll catch the film on video. The latest adaptation is good, but not excellent. You can see my review here.
Have an excellent weekend!
