No one can deny that most movie studios in Hollywood occasionally run a little low on originality. Luckily for them, there’s over a century of classic films that can provide inspiration for new ones… in addition to already-formed characters, plots and dialogue, if need be.

So, it’s never a surprise when a remake gets the green light – this year alone, we’ve had many. Now and then, one of these remakes is pretty good. Other times, a remake is bad or just utterly pointless. Sometimes, they’re even masquerading as original films.

Join us as we count off the top five best (and bottom five worst) remakes and rip-offs from the past year.

Thanks for reading We Got This Covered »
