7. The Thomas Crown Affair

The Thomas Crown Affair
Sleek and sizzling, The Thomas Crown Affair stands on its own and joins the 1968 thriller as a classic.

8. The Magnificent Seven

The Magnificent Seven
The Magnificent Seven is a remake of a Japanese classic, Seven Samurai by Akira Kurosawa. The first one is considered one of the best in history, and the remake... is right alongside it!

9. The Fly

The Fly
With sci-fi special effects as its ally, The Fly arrived and eclipsed the 1958 original on so many levels.

10. True Grit

True Grit
It's hard to top a John Wayne classic. But the Coen brothers did just that by going to the source material to give us an Oscar-winning True Grit that illustrates that remakes can rivet.

11. War of the Worlds

War of the Worlds
There was always something compelling about the H.G. Wells story War of the Worlds. What Orson Welles teased on the radio and the 1953 movie promised, Tom Cruise and Steven Spielberg triumphed with a mind-blowing epic.

12. The Manchurian Candidate

The Manchurian Candidate
When the original The Manchurian Candidate arrived in 1962, it was a thriller of its time. The Denzel Washington remake also fit its time... and if you're going to swap anyone for Angela Lansbury in the original, you can't do better than Meryl Streep.
