Spring Byington was in six movies with Charles Coburn:

THE STORY OF ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL (1939); THE DEVIL AND MISS JONES (1941); HEAVEN CAN WAIT (1943); B.F.'S DAUGHTER (1948); LOUISA (1950); and THE ROCKET MAN (1954).

They were reunited on an episode of December Bride in 1955. So either they liked working together, or they had the same agent!

💙 Clue (1985) is supposedly going to be remade with Ryan Reynolds in it.

❤ Friday the 13th (1980)

💛A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

💚 The Fog (1980)

❤ My Bloody Valentine (1981)

 

I am almost always of the opinion that the original is best, especially for the films listed above. There are times I really like a remake, but those are far and few between.

I have generally found this to be true. The exceptions to this, for myself, were when I unwittingly viewed the remake before the original. This has happened at least twice with Get Carter (1971 and 2000) and (Wages of Fear and Sorcerer , 1953 and 1977).  With Get Carter though, the original was definitely better.

You're right! The remakes I like better are the ones I have seen before the original too - The Thomas Crown Affair (1999) vs the (1968) version and An Affair to Remember (1957) vs the (1939) version.

Most of these, I never saw or didn't know they existed. It seems I didn't miss anything at all.

That 2005 remake of THE FOG was ♦dire♦. 

So we have the original 1951 version of 'THE THING' and then the 1982 remake (which I quite like) and then there was a pre-quel from 2011 or 2012.  I've never seen the prequel.  Couldn't be bothered.  I thought the '51 version was ok, but the '82 was much better.  And all those creepy 'creations' added to the fun.  I would wager the 2012 prequel is full of CGI effects instead of creepy things that are actually there. 

'Nuff said.
