Regular Karate: What are your favorite and least favorite remakes?

Some favorites:

The Fly
Ocean's 11
A Fistful of Dollars
The Ring
Solaris
The Thing (Carpenter's Version)
Willard

I'm sure I'm leaving some out (and I'm not counting when a director remakes their own).

Least favorite would take too long, so I'll say the last one I saw that I absolutely hated was Red Dawn.

I'll just say that my favorite is 'Let Me In' and my most hated is STRAW DOGS


you were really right about not listing least favorites, I might as well say "Every horror remake of the past ten years."


Anyone else feel free to chime in! This probably belongs in the remake thread, though.
Ever have a feeling and you donít know why?

Aja's version of The Hills Have Eyes is great, though.  The remake of Last House on the Left was solid, too.  The Crazies remake justified its existence.  Quarantine was a worthwhile version of [Rec].  Hell, I even like Zack Snyder's Dawn of the Dead quite a bit.
That's some catch, that Catch-22.

The Ring is great too.
