The approximately 28 titles that have made the transition boast a combined Rotten Tomatoes average of just 18%, which isn’t helped by German director Uwe Boll’s efforts House of the Dead, Alone in the Dark, Bloodrayne and Postal respectively scoring 4%, 1%, 4% and 7%. Ouch.

Jordan and Eddie – Our Favourite Remakes

Jordan and Eddie (The Movie Guys)

Infernal Affairs, which the Departed is based on Infernal Affairs, which the Departed is based on

Piece by Jordan and Eddie on 25/05/2015

It’s not often that a remake of a foreign movie, TV show or an old classic succeeds, but when they do they’re usually hugely enjoyable and memorable films in their own rights, sometimes even eclipsing what the original did so well.

The key to a successful remake is that the filmmaker looks to not copy or pay homage to the original but ad their own unique flair to the story, without losing sight of what made the tale such a success in the first place.
