Question of the Day

Suggested by Shaker BlueJean: "What's your favorite remake, and why? (I've grown attached to the Japanese remake of Ghost, where the business executive/ghost is a woman and the potter is a man. Better special effects, too, though the ending isn't as satisfying.)"

Off the top of my head, I can't think of any remakes I prefer to the original material — not that that was a stipulation of BlueJean's question, anyway — so, with that caveat, my favorite remake is probably A Bug's Life, which is a splendid remake of Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai.

You might be thinking: Liss, that is just an homage, not a remake!

But oh no, my friend. It is a remake. 😀
