The Apartment Blu-rayThe GodfatherRocky

With the Oscars set to air on Sunday, the Super Bowl for movie geeks is obviously on my mind at the moment. However maddening, controversial, and self-serving as the Oscars may be at times, at the end of the day, it is still a celebration of cinema that inspires intelligent conversations and debates about the art of motion pictures.

Now, it’s no secret that the Best Picture winners are sometimes anything but.

Top 10 Movie Remakes

The Thing                                    The Fly

Whenever the word “remake” pops up, it’s hard not to groan. After all, most remakes are needless and pointless cash grabs that pale in comparison to the original (I’m looking at you “Halloween” and “Planet of the Apes”). With that said, there are some remakes that do stand out and, in some cases, are even an improvement over the original. This list is a tribute to those films. Continue reading
