    I enjoyed the remake of I Spit in your Grave moreso than the original.

    No it's not. I can see a discussion that it's better. But there is no way in any fashion to say the original was bad or a flop. It is still a classic scifi movie.
    This thread is not about just better.
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    Deathstalker was a cheap Conan the Barbarian knockoff. Deathstalker II was a funny, fourth-wall-breaking spoof of cheap Conan the Barbarian knockoffs.

    Sticking with Star Trek, Undiscovered Country followed Final Frontier and First Contact followed Generations. 2 fantastic movies that followed 2 terrible movies.

    Guyver Dark heroe would be my pick. Although the original it not really bad in my estimation but more of an okay flick.

    The second Nolan Batman film is often considered better because of Heath Ledger's Joker.
    I really enjoyed Dark Knight and Dark Knight Rises, but I thought Batman Begins was pretty lackluster.

    None of the Saw movies are good, but I thought Saw II and III had more compelling characters than the original.

    I thought the first Saw movie was pretty darn good.

    Saw II was also good but I think it was with III the series started leaning into torture porn.

    They're about equal, imo. The first being one of the best superhero movies to date.

    Friday the 13th Part 2, did introduce Jason.
    I think restorative nostalgia is the number one issue with comic book fans.
    A fine distinction between two types of Nostalgia:

    Reflective Nostalgia allows us to savor our memories but accepts that they are in the past
    Restorative Nostalgia pushes back against the here and now, keeping us stuck trying to relive our glory days.

    Like I said, true. Serves me for making posts right before bed.
    The bit I remember best was when they were on the ice measuring what was under there, and them realizing they were in a perfect saucer-shaped circle. For some reason that scene has always struck me as so perfect and cinematic.
    Same here. I don't remotely get the okay but overplayed 2005 Kong being close to the innovation of the 1933 original or that original being a bad movie.

    Really not seeing the dislike of the original Wrath of Khan either as it stands as the most beloved of all the original cast Trek movies.
    Power with Girl is better.

    ...really? I always thought the original was commonly agreed to be the best with each following entry getting worse. What was bad about Blade?

    Die Hard With A Vengence was much better than Die Hard 2
