With the release of the Wolfman and news about that upcoming Spider-Man reboot coming along (Why?) I have decided to make an article about the Reboot and the Remakes that have happened over the past while.

First up:

Star Trek (2009)

Directed by JJ Abrams, Written by Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, Starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Eric Bana and Simon Pegg

Remake/Reboot of:

The first ten Star Trek Films (1979-2001)

If you're wondering why this is here despite it being a Sequel of sorts, You'd be suprised. This movie explains a lot of how each character from the Original series became to be who they are in the series. Plus the FX don't hurt.

Transformers/Revenge of the Fallen (2007/9)

Directed by Micheal Bay, Written by Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Ethan Kruger, Starring Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, Tyrese Gibson, Josh Duhamel, Peter Cullen, Tony Todd, Hugo Weaving, Charles Adler, others

Remake/Reboot of:

Transformers: The Movie (1986)

Directed by Nelson Shin, Written by Ron Friedman, Starring Judd Nelson, Orson Welles, Peter Cullen, Frank Welker and Leonard Nimoy among others

The first animated film is consider to be the better TF film with the first live action film by Micheal "Explosions" Bay coming in close second. But with revenge of The Fallen, not only is there more explosions, but there's also Boobs, Butts, Stereotypically racist Robots, Robot Genitalia, Dog Humping and other insanely disturbing stuff that makes it one of the worst films of the previous year.

Plus the animated film had Unicron in it. UNICRON!

The Ten Commandments (2007)

Directed by John Stronach & Bill Boyce, Written by Ed Naha, Starring Ben Kingsley, Elliot Gould, Christan Slater, Alfred Molina and Kathleen Barr

Remake/reboot of:

The Ten Commandments (1956)

Directed by Cecil B. DeMille, Written by various, starring Charlton Heston, Yul Brenner, Anne Baxton, John Carradine, Vincent Price and a cast of Thousands.

Which in turn is a remake of this 1923 silent film also made by DeMille:

The original 1923 film was different then its two remakes as it only had the Moses story for only half the film. The '56 remake boasted a cast of thousands and great special effects for the time. Unfortunately, the 2007 remake was horrid. The animation and voice acting being the worst things about it.

Bad Moses, Bad!


The Incredible Hulk (2008)

Directed by Louis Leterrier, Written by Zak Penn and Edward Norton (albeit uncredited), starring Norton, Liv Tyler, William Hurt and Tim Roth

Remake/Reboot of:



Directed by Ang Lee, written by James Schamus, Michael France & John Turman, Starring Eric Bana, Jennifer Connelly, Sam Elliot, Nick Nolte and Josh Lucas

I know what you're thinking, why the hell would there be a movie from the 2000's in this list of remakes that was later rebooted only five years later. That's a very good question that I can't rally answer. But either way, while the first movie had ILM, the second movie had both plot and Abomination. 'Nuff said.

I also apologize for the lack of pictures too. I'll be adding more as I write onward through this series.
