The Good, The Bad and The Remake - Christmas Teaser

BONUS: Episode 11 - The Things

EThe public have spoken and the films for the final episode have been chosen - by a landslide, you voted for Neal, Catherine and Ben to watch The Thing From Another World (1951) and its remake John Carpenter's The Thing (1982). The original is another slice of high-grade 1950s B-movie from producer-director extraordinaire Howard Hawks. Adapted from John Campbell's story 'Who Goes There?', the thing from another world takes on the form of a very tall man with an odd-shaped head, limbs made of plant and a taste for blood. If that doesn't sound like your cup of tea, fear not - there's actually lots of great stuff to recommend in this sci-fi thriller. The 1982 remake needs little introduction - it's the one with Kurt Russell's magnificent beard, the chest cavity that eats hands, a head that sprouts legs, THAT blood test and one of the best dog performances in cinema history. Neal and Ben are lifelong fans of this one, but Catherine's never seen it and doesnt much care for horror films. S...

BONUS: Episode 11 - The Things

Episode 10 - Seven Samurai & The Magnificent Seven

EWe believe in going out with a bang and, perhaps, saving the best for last. That's why this week Neal, Catherine and Ben will be tackling two classic, epic interpretations of the same story. Up first is the indisputable masterpiece from Akira Kurosawa, Seven Samurai - featuring the Japanese John Wayne, Toshiro Mifune - a 3.5-hour, black and white, subtitled film from the 1950s. But don't let that put you off, it's genuinely really entertaining. Then - vying for the final Remazing of the series - is John Sturges' 1960 Americanisation, The Magnificent Seven. Adapted into English and updated into colour, cutting an hour and a half of runtime and enlisting Hollywood legends in the shapes of Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, James Coburn, Charles Bronson and Eli Wallach in the process, can Sturges stand a chance of matching the great Japanese master? It's a hotly contested battle and neither film comes out unscathed. Stay listening until the end for details of how to help select the bonus epis...

Episode 10 - Seven Samurai & The Magnificent Seven

Episode 9 - Invasion of the Body Snatchers

ETwo bona fide classics for you this week, as Neal, Catherine and Ben get stuck into the black and white 1950s B-movie version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers - complete with communist undertones - directed by Don "Dirty Harry" Siegel. Then it's onto Philip "The RIght Stuff" Kaufman's late-1970s update, starring Donald Sutherland, Jeff Goldblum, Veronica Cartwright and the once and future Spock, Leonard Nimoy. Special effects, paranoia, fear and distrust course through both of these films, which are both clever, fast-paced and well direcetd. So will there be anything to call the difference in quality, or are we destined for a 5-star Agreemake?

Episode 9 - Invasion of the Body Snatchers

Episode 8 - Flatliners

EAn unplanned tribute to the recent passing of director Joel Schumacher this week as Neal, Catherine and Ben revisit his 1990 'brat pack' thriller Flatliners - featuring Julia Roberts, Keifer Sutherland, Kevin Bacon, William Baldwin and Oliver Platt - from a time when he was a respected Hollywood heavy-hitter, prior to ruining the Batfranchise with Batnipples... Then it's onto the much-maligned 2017 remake from The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo's Neils Arden Oplev, and a cast that includes Juno herself Ellen Page, Rogue One's Diego Luna and up-and-comers Kiersey Clemons and Nina Dobrev. Can it capture the stylistic thrills of the earlier film and do something new with the material, or is it another case of a film that should have been left alone?

Episode 7 - The Hitcher

EWe've gone slightly more obscure this week, as Neal, Catherine and Ben take a look at the cult 1986 slasher-thriller The Hitcher - starring Rutger Hauer, C. Thomas Howell and a very young Jennifer Jason Leigh - as three people caught in a vicious, cruel game of death and torture on a Texas Highway, climaxing with one of the great twists in 80s horror. Then it's on to the Michael Bay-produced remake, starring One Tree Hill's Sophia Bush and - in the role of the psychopathic John Ryder - Sean Bean. Given that the original fllm didn't make much of a splash at the time, is this set to be a shot-for-shot remake cash grab, or will it forge its own path?

Episode 7 - The Hitcher

Episode 6 - Ghostbusters

EThe GBR team tackle the most controversial pick yet, with a bona fide 80s classic in Ivan Reitman's original, not to mention an amazing cast - Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Sigourney Weaver, Rick Moranis and more - followed up by the 2016 all-female remake from Paul 'Bridesmaids' Feig. Ben is all ready to man the defenses and with neither Catherine or Neal having seen the remake, could this start a fight, or will they come down on the side of agreeing and making up (agreemaking, if you will)?

Episode 6 - Ghostbusters

Episode 5 - Insomnia

EA double bill of acclaimed, high-brow thrillers this week, as Neal, Catherine and Ben sit down with the late-90s Scandi-noir Insomnia, starring Stellan Skarsgard in a very dark role - prior to finding international fame in Good Will Hunting and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Then they mull over the slightly expanded remake from Christopher Nolan - his next film after Memento brought him to worldwide attention - starring Al Pacino, Hillary Swank and Robin Williams. The original is very highly regarded by critics and the remake is arguably the forgotten film from its superstar director, so has it got a shot at winning the coveted GBR stamp of Remazing, or is it another lazy but glossy Hollywood Unmake, as so many remakes of foreign films are?

Episode 4 - Robocop

EIt's little surprise to most people that three people that grew up in the 1980s would have strong feelings about Paul Verhoeven's seminal sci-fi actioner - and Neal, Catherine and Ben are predictably gushing when it comes to rewatching it. But 2/3rds of the GBR team have yet to see the 2014 remake starring Joel Kinnaman, Michael Keaton, Gary Oldman and Samuel Jackson. With a lineup like that and a massive budget, can it really be as bad as some critics say?

Episode 3 - The Wicker Man

ESo far on The Good, The Bad and The Remake, we've had one terrible remake and one brilliant remake. Now, as Neal, Catherine and Ben sit down to watch the 2006 remake of the seminal 1970's classic - this time starring Nicolas Cage - it could well be equal amounts of both. Which could be a problem when it comes to rating it.
