25 of the Best Movie Remakes of All Time

"Through the years, movie buffs have moaned and groaned through countless remakes. Though the majority of them deserve to be moaned and groaned over, they already have a built-in fanbase and thus are a surefire way for studios to make money. Case in point: Disney's live-action "Lion King" remake raked in $1.656 billion at the global box office. But for every "Lion King," there is a "Flatliners" or "The Fog"—though more often than not remakes, even if they do respectable box office, are simply forgettable compared to the original. Anyone remember 2008's remake of "The Day the Earth Stood Still?" (Look it up.)
Stacker surveyed the often-disastrous history of film remakes and found 25 diamonds in the rough. To qualify, the movie had to have at least a 7.5 IMDb user rating with 15,000 votes or a Metascore of 70 with at least seven reviews. Films are organized chronologically"
