I haven't seen the remake of Magnificent Seven yet, but I probably will. Speaking of westerns, I liked both versions of True Grit as well as 3:10 to Yuma.
Ok, I think I have the worst remake ever:
Clash of The Titans with Liam Neeson and .... what's his face. I wanted to like that movie because I do like Liam Neeson and thought he was an intersting choice for Zuess..... but everything about that movie sucked. Part of the reason I have such an acidic reaction to this movie is that the original with Lawrence Olivier, Burgess Meredith, and Harry Hamlin is one of my favorite movies ever, maybe my ultimate favorite. The special effects by Ray Harryhausen really captured my imagination as a child, in fact his films were a huge influence on me artistically throughout my life in inspiring me to draw monsters and dinosaurs since I was about 4 years old. In the original, Perseus has to embark on a series of quests to earn the hand of and then save Andromeda. He has to go through hell and earn everything, for example Pegasus, the winged horse. In the remake, the effects and designs weren't iconic, they made fun of Bubo the mechanical owl from the original, and when Pegasus shows up he just kind of presents himself to Perseus like (this should be read in a Mr. Ed voice) " Hello, Perseus! I'm your magical winged horsey!"
The motivation in the remake is that Perseus is a whiny little emo with daddy issues, bleh. They combined the characters of Calibos and Acrisius into one, and he was lame and made no sense. I could go on and on, it was so Hollywood Vomit. Bleh.
