I posted a while ago before that Conan would have been a cool remake, but people on here said no, and they did the remake. I also commented that it would be cool if they did a remake in Blade Runner, guess what Playgrounders, they're doing a remake of Blade Runner. P.S. Last night, I smoked about three bowls and watched the Big Lebowski. That movie is so fuc&ing hilarious. I forget who told me about it, but once I remember, I will definitely prop you. What movies do you guys think would be a cool remake? Past or present?

I'm listing these assuming they would be done correctly & well.

Mortal Kombat
Street Fighter
Ghostbusters (50/50 on this one, but if they made it, i'd watch)
Waterworld (i think. some ideas just never work)
Twister 3D would be amazing!

Robocop would be on my list, but i believe they are already doing a remake of it

The Dark Crystal

Labyrinth

Wizard of Oz

Return to Oz

Like P_f said, Jurassic park would be mint. I always wanted to see a newer version of that 'Walking with dinosaurs' doco.

Daredevil. the first one sucked so bad and DareDevil is so much cooler than ben affleck

I'm not a fan of remakes in most cases, and more often than not I don't see them. I'm trying to come up with a movie that I'd like to see remade, and the one that immediately popped into my head was Clash of the Titans, but they did that one already(not well, i might add). The Natural might not be a bad one to remake with a guy that can actually swing a bat like a man.

Good call on the Natural....

Completely re envisioning the fist star wars could be very cool. Could never have the same charm but I am a fan of the gritty. Too bad the mythology is so set in stone.

I would love to see a propaganda element from the dark side, perhaps a bit more gray to the story, and the good guys could have a whole terrorist element used against them.

Taking a couple stories from Creepshow and Creepshow 2 and actually doing them well might be good too. They were so hokey, but there's real potential there with today's CGI technology and a decent budget.

You know just for fun i'm actually writing a street fighter script right now.

I'm very interested in a new jurassic park but with all the new findings paleotology and genetics has made with dinosaurs a remark could look very different from the original. Believe it or not i've also just for fun been working on a jurassic park script .

Some movies are so good that they shouldn't be touched though. I hear you that it would be super cool to see a new version with today's effects though.

Equilibrium - I know it isn't that old, but I think with a bigger budget, it would be spectacular.

They are remaking Red Dawn....hope they dont screw that up.
I would say movies worth redoing would be Cyborg (Minus Van Damme of course) Mad Max (any of them) and A knights tale.

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest



CLASSIC! One of my all-time faves. Just curious.Do you know who you would choose to play Nurse Ratched or McMurphy?

Resident Evil


Follow the games storyline this time.

I actually liked the first Resident Evil. It had a great feel in the beginning and made it's own story. The sequels sucked.
I know it almost never works out, but I wish they would make more video games into movies. FF7 AC was sweet and I actually enjoyed Max Payne (they did a better job at it than people give it credit for) and the aforementioned RE.
I think Star Craft could be good, though I'm pretty sure SC was just ripped from Alien, Predator, and Starship troopers combined.
Maybe they should remake Mario Brothers, I own that movie and refuse to give it higher than a 5/10, even for the time. They can remake that all they want imo, but I'm mostly with 20 20 dollars on this one.

Mass Effect would make a great 3 part movie if done right. Hell, make it 8 like Harry Potter. I'm thinking a Lord of the Rings type feel, but in space. Just have to worry about that thankskilling turkey in space though.

Halo would be a badass game to make a movie into.


Although I might not want that to be made into a movie until maybe 5-10 years from now. Just because it would take an epic amount of special effects

I would hope that they make it a raw action movie full of badassery..... Some of these movies try to have stories and turn mediocre like Immortals.

I'm shocked it hasn't happened yet. I'm not a fan of the games since the first 2, but they're a phenomenon and you'd think they'd take advantage of the popularity and make as much money as they can through things like movies.

It's been done for quite a while, but it got shelved. It finally comes out in a couple of months.

I agree 100%

Lucky for halo the games are ongoing. Plenty of opportunity to still make a boatload of money.

Maybe wait until the series is over?



I was thinking. Grand Theft Auto is an absolutely HUGE franchise as well. Arguably bigger then halo. A series of movies that loosely followed the story could be good depending on the cast. I feel the story is already good enough but I can see them casting actors that just don't fit.

And yes I know vice city was loosely based on Scarface
