8 Remakes That Were Amazing And 7 Remakes That Should Have Never Been Made

Sometimes they work, but sometimes it's best to leave the past in the past.

1. We all know that the US adaptation of The Office was hilarious.

2. But the American version of Skins really didn't translate. Like, at all.

3. Ocean's Eleven is so good that you might not even know it's a reboot.

4. It wasn't awful, but no one asked for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and we could do without it, tbh.

5. Queer Eye kept the essence of the original, but had all the right ingredients to bring it into the modern day.

6. The US version of The Inbetweeners, on the other hand, chewed up and spit out any essence the original series had.

7. One Day At A Time is the perfect example of how to bring an old sit-com into the 21st Century.

8. Though it's technically a continuation, Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life showed us that some things are best left in the past.

9. The 2016 Jungle Book showed a new side to the classic story, and real-life Mowgli was even cuter than the cartoon.

10. But all The Lion King did was show us that live-action lions aren't as lovable as cartoon ones.

11. The revamp of Doctor Who is way better than most thrillers, tbh.

12. This goes without saying, but the 2017 version of The Mummy just didn't need to be made.

13. I'm sure I wasn't the only one that was left confused after seeing the Watchmen movie, but the TV series has all the answers.

14. But after seeing the 2014 TMNT movie, all I can say is: Leonardo, Raphael, Michaelangelo, and Donatello – I'm so, so sorry.

15. But it's safe to say that the remake of The Parent Trap is a modern-day masterpiece.
