List: Top 3 Films We Want Remade
This week on Episode 188 of the InSession Film Podcast, we reviewed Antoine Fuqua’s The Magnificent Seven, which was a remake of the 1960 film of the same name, which itself was a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai. We understand that most cinephiles are not on the remake bandwagon, but it’s getting more and more inevitable these days. Remakes are popping up all over the place and it is something you just have to accept. Remakes aren’t always a bad thing either. If a filmmaker has a clear vision for his/her film, a remake can easily stand on its own. There are properties and premises that already exist (and are really fascinating) that could actually work very well on film and are due for good justice.
On that note, which films would make your list? Here are the one’s that made ours:
*Keep in mind we have different criteria for our lists as well*
