It's no secret the vast majority of remakes are crap. But occasionally you get gems
Any movies you'd like to see remade?
I like really like the premise The Man With The Golden Gun. They shoe-horn in some crap about solar energy, but really, it's just an excuse for Bond to be there and to give Scaramanga an Island. At it's core it's a story about Bond fighting his opposite, like Professor Moriarty.
I don't hate this movie like many people do. I love the opening, the duel at the end, the Island setting, the soundtrack (which everyone seems to hate) and it has one of the best (ruined by dumb sound effect) stunt sequences in the series.
They already rebooted Spectre/Blofield (and to be honest it was pretty bad), but i'd love to see them reboot The Man With The Golden Gun in a more modern, gritty setting with whoever replaces Daniel Craig.
