The other day, I watched the movie [Project X (1968)]. It was a sci-fi espionage film set in the year 2118. Due to the nature of what the film is about, I was a thrown off by the upbeat 60s jazz music in the opening credits. Not what I was expecting at all. The whole thing had a TV movie feel to it.
But I will say this: The core story was actually pretty good. This would a prime candidate for a modern big budget remake. Keep the basic plot and give everything a fresh coat and it could be a winner. Movies like this are ones that should be remade. I’m reminded of this quote from director John Huston:
There is a willful, lemming-like persistence in remaking past successes time after time. They can’t make them as good as they are in our memories, but they go on doing them and each time it’s a disaster. Why don’t we remake some of our bad pictures… and make them good?
So, what movies do you think should be remade?
