Want to Know Some Remakes Better Than the Original?

Ever hear about one of your favorite movies getting a remake and feel that awful groan of “why can’t Hollywood do anything creative?” Well turns out that not all remakes are bad, some are even better than the original (gasp!)

WhatCulture put together an awesome list of innovative and creative movies you’d never know were remakes, and that definitely stand up against their vintage counterparts.

There are some you wouldn’t even think of being remakes, like who thinks of Scarface and goes, “Yeah, I mean it was good, but have you seen the original?” Also I felt personally validated that It made the cut, maybe it’s because I didn’t see the original, since I was an adult, but I thought it was boooorring and loved the 2017 version. Let us know what you think of the list in the comments and what are some of your favorite innovative remakes?
