interesting line-up, and without much distinction, i think 'thomas crown affair' doesn't look positive, simply because of casting...

'jacob's ladder' is a tough row to hoe...the first was so friggin' raw and powerful...a remake, i fear, will only produce a xerox copy...

just an interesting side...the title 'nasty women' is supposed to be a remake of 'dirty rotten scoundrels' starring michael caine and steve martin...'dirty rotten scoundrels was actually a remake of 'bedtime story' staring david niven, marlon brando, and fetching young shirley jones... 

but you knew that already...

That's all Hollywood can do now is either: Remakes, Sequels or Prequels. Hollywood has NOT an original idea in 20 years at least. Today we base films on: Video Games, Old Television Shows and Comic Books. Also the Violence in films is so Glorified by Hollywood that its so PURE EVIL. People are like sheep going to the slaughter house watching and enjoying this horrific films. Perhaps that's why there is mass shootings every week or month and road rage is getting worse. Perhaps that because in society there is: No Empathy, No Compassion, No Understanding, No Love, No Intelligence, there is NO NOTHING.

Shudder, groan, these all sound horrid.

It's heartbreaking they will ruin this Dr. Suess classic again: How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2018)

I hear much scorn for The Upside (2017) and the planned Toni Erdmann remake.

Oh jeez. I hadn't heard about The Upside. I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

I knew about the Toni Erdmann remake, but I have a feeling it will never happen. With Nicholson at least. But I'll add it.

And maybe 'It' should be removed?

Nice poll idea!
I think you forgot to mention Al Pacino in Scarface.
Scarface will get my vote, couldn't made better than the 1983 version.

Yeah, I put Al Capone instead of Al Pacino... Freudian slip. Funny that Pacino and Capone are nearly anagrams of each other.

I REALLY hope this goes live soon, since some of these movies are starting to come out... :/

I agree with Jess above that you should probably remove 'It' since it has been widely released and is really popular, too.

I didn't like the original Suspira.  But I love seeing Tilda Swinton in this upcoming remake and I also flinched seeing terrible actress Dakota Johnson in that one as well.

Joe Carnahan directed freaking A-Team movie.  That's not a good sign for The Raid remake.

I'm trying to keep an open mind on Murder on the Orient Express (2017) and the trailer looks pretty terrible and Kenneth Branagh is hit or miss as a director.

Flatliners has an abysmal 4% on Rotten Tomatoes.  I will likely watch as a potential Razzies ballot.  That will get my vote.

I think it's pointless and absurd to judge the quality of movies that haven't been made yet. The title is "The Worst Movie Remakes Ever" and then you ask people to judge what they think will be the worst in upcoming movies, so it's already a bit misleading.
