6 Terrible Movie Remakes That Should Not Have Been Made

4. Planet of the Apes (2001)

  • Remake of: Planet of the Apes (1954)

1954’s Planet of the Apes is widely regarded as one of the greatest sci-fi movies ever made. This makes any attempt at a remake a fool’s errand, especially when your efforts will be constantly measured up to those of a classic film. Why a studio saw fit to tag Tim Burton to direct its remake is far beyond us. His version possessed none of the charm of the original, and certainly little of the shock value. Cinema Crazed even went so far as to call it “one of the most nonsensical series of events ever created on film,” making for a movie that failed astronomically on every level.
