These days there seems to be a lot of remakes and reboots. It makes me think back and remember old sci-fi movies that by today's standards would appear very dated and even corny.                                                    If you were to choose two movies to be remade what would they be.                                           For me, I would choose Frank Herbert's 'Dune' and an old classic called 'The forbidden planet'.                     Make you choice or  criticize mine.

PULSERIFLE 187 - What an exceptionally fun topic! Hmm...if I were given the chance to remake two science fiction films, I would go with Screamers and Enemy Mine. Both films would likely be amazing if brought forward into today's special effects wizardry! :)

YES! Enemy mine is an awesome movie. Good choice.

TBH most of the movies I would have listed already have been remade to some extent, and it's almost always a less quality product than the original.

That being said if I had to choose probably the Universal monster movies- Creature from the Black Lagoon, and The Invisible Man.

Both AVP movies, they need to be made better

I've seen Enemy Mine. I agree with that choice. That was a good flick.

I'm not really sure what else. I would say something older like The Fly, but I love Cronenberg's version from the 80s, so no need to remake that. I would say Planet of the Apes, but they're already doing that and doing a great job at it. I would like to see a good Alien vs Predator, too, like LT said, but I'm honestly not sure Hollywood is capable of doing it justice (even though I'm not familiar with the comics). I dunno, I may have to think about it for a while...

I know...

John Carter. But not the awful Disney version that came out a few years ago. It was butchered. I wanted to like it, I really did, but it was terrible. Something a little darker and closer to the book with likeable characters.

Alien as a PG13

and

A genderswapped The Thing

 

Both by the worst director possible and with the worst cast available.

 

Why? To make a point that some things should be left well alone.

Logan's Run.  Make it closer to the book and cash in on some of that Hunger Games/ Maze Runner bank.

a dark, madhouse version of Silent Running and a much updated Andromeda Strain

This is a tricky one...

I would like to see a more Darker Remake of the 1979 Disney The Black Hole (Maybe Ridley Scott director)

And maybe Forbidden Planet

I watched The Black Hole again not long ago. Setting aside some of the sillier bits - I'd forgotten how dark it is already.  It wouldn't be hard to make a better version.  Maybe the gravity from the proximity to the black hole is what drives Reinhardt mad; kinda like Pinbacker in Sunshine (but not so blurry).

Can I use BOTH of my votes on Forbidden Planet please?  1000 times Forbidden Planet!  But if I had to choose another, I would be The Beast from 20000 Fathoms.

I see there are a few votes for the Forbidden planet. The movie has a few excellent concepts. But the effects are a bit on the old and dusty side. A revamp would ring in some more Sci-fi fans.

The movie Krull would look good if it was rebooted too.
