Top 5 Worst Remakes of All Time (Anyway, That’s All I got)

worst remakes

For our second episode, we’re following up last week’s “best remakes” by discussing the other side of remakes: The Bad Side. We take a little time at the beginning to get to know the hosts a bit more, and then we get into our lists, highlighting the worst remakes of all time. Needless to say, we had some stuff to get off our chests.

We’d love to hear what some of your least favorite remakes are, or what we might have missed, and we’d also love to see your ‘Cinemaholic Bios.’ Comment below and let us know!

  1. yesssss when I see Sam Noland I don’t hesitate to smash that play button.

    • Haha thanks so much! I’m glad you enjoy listening! (we hope the length on this one wasn’t too much)

  2. Wait is there a big difference between watching the Kill Bill movies separately and viewing “the whole bloody affair?”

    • From what I understand, The Whole Bloody Affair has an extended anime sequence for O-Ren’s backstory, the Crazy 88 fight is in color, and the prologue from vol. 2 is cut out.

  3. 1. Psycho
    2. Red Dawn
    3. The Wicker Man

    • It’s a shame when a movie is bad and didn’t have a reason to exist in the first place. I personally enjoy The Wicker Man at times, but it’s certainly not very good.


    • Yeah, that’s a bad one. I think it had its heart in the right place, but that just wasn’t enough to pull it through. It didn’t quite fit the criteria, but it’s definitely a failure.

  5. Haven’t listened yet but you missed a giant opportunity when you wrote the bad side instead of the bad place. Michael Schur is shaking his head in disappointment

    • Oh man, you’re totally right. I definitely owe someone an apology 🙂

  6. Glad I could make another appearance on the show. For the record, my horn is “train” for “hi guys, keep up the good work and don’t forget to subscribe”

    • Haha that’s awesome. Thanks for the (very loud) encouragement!

  9. I wholeheartedly agree with all the negative feedback regarding the remake of the classic Dynasty drama. It could have been great, but the writers and producers killed it. The best advice I can possibly give you is: Don”t mess with perfection. Remember earlier in the year when one of the networks did a remake of Dirty Dancing? It crashed and burned. Well, you know what happened afterwards! People hated it, it was so bad. Ditto the remake of Dallas. It started off good and then flopped due to the poor writing. Both the original Dynasty and Dallas dramas were the greatest ever! A message to writers and producers: STOP with the political correctness. Don”t cast black people in a white person”s role, and vice versa. Stop shoving race and homosexuality down our throats. I have news for you, people who watch shows like Dynasty don”t enjoy seeing two men in bed. We just don”t. Thank God for HBO!
