I like the old stuff at it is. Why remake such good memories? I always enjoy the original more than the remakes. You can't remake Andy Hardy, Nancy Drew, Dracula, To Kill a Mockingbird and have them as meaningful in today's action-packed colored movies. The one TV show I really liked that got turned into a couple of movies was Pee Wee's Playhouse.

I love Hitchock movies. I love that they are full of suspense without showing guts and sex stuff. If I redid one, I would modernize the story and keep the suspense without all the violence and naked stuff.

My So Called Life or Freeks and Geeks ... maybe even a sequel with them all as adults.

Little One said...

Well, I don't really know of any movie or tv show. But my favorite comic was Family Circus (is that still around?). So, I would probably make it into a movie :D

Lesa said...

Would keep the oldies just as they are - Love them that way. But Alias as an updated movie would be cool!! I miss that show.

SusanH said...

Honestly, I usually hate remakes - I like movies/TV shows in their original form, for the most part. I mean, who could replace people like Lucy or Vivien Leigh?? Seriously?

remakes suck. I have yet to see one I liked. Sequels are usually okay if they have the original actors like Star Trek or that stuff, but I get so mad when writers, actors and directors think they can take a classic and fix it. Only in the US do we tear apart stuff like this. Write something new america!

What fun. My friend and I were talking about this same thing as we drove 2 hours from an all day crop ....we decided that she liked Courtship of Eddie's father & I liked Wanda Wanda...no one ever knows Wanda Wanda though...

I tend to agree with what everyone else said about remakes sucking. lol I usually find that the remakes aren't near as good as the original. Sometimes even making a fav book into a movie sucks. I didn't like Horse Whisperer (it was nothing like the book) or Flowers in the Attic (really nothing like the book). But once in awhile a really good movie comes along and when the ending happens I want more. I'd love to see Pretty Woman Part 2 & How to Lose a Guy in 10 days Part 2. Thanks for a fun question.

Fantasy Island! I'd like to see a (clean) modern movie of this classic show!

I would like to see a movie of Archie and Jughead. I loved that comic book growing up. It would be fun to see them in action.

Wonder Woman! I would make it darker kind of like Batman Begins. How cool would that be?!

My favorite old movie is the musical "My Fair Lady" with Audrey Hepburn. It would be fun to see it remade, although "Pretty Woman" is a version of the similar story line.
Thanks Angie!!

Reality Show Reject said...

I would love to see a movie version of Ed (which was one of my favorite TV shows) or American Dreams (another favorite...why does NBC cancel all of my favorite shows!) Thanks for the chance to win!
