Top 10 Ridiculous Remakes
Rightly credited as the worst remake of all time, Gus Van Sant’s biggest crime is that his remake of the Hitchcock classic is pointless.

Sure it’s interesting to see what different actors can do with the roles, (that is until you actually watch them) and the story being set in the modern day (until you realize that it changes nothing. Thankfully Van Sant learned from this failed experiment, and went back to making thought provoking indie films. We will forgive you Gus, if you promise never to do it again.
