Cecil B. DeMille's silent The Ten Commandments from 1923 is on the other hand better than the 1956 remake, if you ask me. Not that I really care for either of them, to be honest.

Although I like Corman's version, Frank Oz's Little Shop of Horrors is one entertaining masterpiece.

If you want to quibble like Stanton then go ahead.

I was merely pre-empting a possible "Those are different versions of a story" post.

Jackson's is a worthy remake but it's just too damn long.
No story about a giant ape should be three hours long.

Lol, true enough.  Still, I really like some parts of it.  Its also a nifty analogy to the 1930s (Depression at the beginning, Hollywood escapism in the middle, death and destruction at the end).

I imagine that we can agree that both the original and Jackson's remake are better than Dino De Laurentiis's '76 remake.  Old Dino remakes his own movies.   ;D

The Quiet American with Michael Caine is waaaay better than the 50s version.

Nosferatu. The Original, of course, is a great horror, but very old, and apart from a few truly scary scenes you'll smile on it. But Herzog's remake is a thing of beauty. And Klaus Kinski is creepy as usual.

This is a good call, although I don't totally agree with you. It crossed my mind but I personally couldn't decide which is the best of the two. Klaus Kinski is absolutely magnificent in Herzog's version, but the oldie from 1922 is one of those horrors that are like too good to be true, not to even mention for 20s b/w silent horror movie standards (if there were any) .

This is true, provided you don't watch the English-language version.

Savini's version of Night of the Living Dead beats the original.

That's a bold statement.

Something to do with death

 Herzog's Nosferatu is very serein, whilst not a film I regard amongst the greats, it's certainly a very interesting film, and let's face it Kinski is very watchable. I've only seen a couple of Herzog's, I find him quite tough to really love though, some of his films are just too slow for me. I think 'Aguirre: Wrath of God' is my favourite of his.

As for remakes that beat the original how about the Bourne Identity.  O0
