Not too impressed with Empire’s latest article. Quite a few of their “remakes that worked” would probably be on my list of 10 worst remakes.
Some of the worst choices on their list:
50: Italian Job
47: Assault on Precinct 13
27: War of the Worlds (I actually didn’t mind War of the Worlds but I know I’m in a minority)
26: King Kong
10: The Magnificent Seven (I know most people like it but I really don’t)
