Various attempts at remaking Bonanza
They tried to remake Bonanza? I think I rememberd the worst offender, The American REIMAGINEING of GODZILLA.

Re: Failed reboots/remakes?

I hate to admit this given my adoration for the film but I think by large Superman Returns was a pretty expensive failure. I don't even necessarily think it conforms to the "reboot" label -- it was positioned more as a sequel to the previous Christopher Reeve movies than anything else -- but I suspect it was WB's desire to have this launch a whole new series of Superman movies and obviously that ain't happening, so I guess you could consider it a failure on that regard.

Maybe the next Superman movie will use Superman III and Superman IV as launching points.

Which was a shame because I really liked Kevin Spacey in that.

Anyone remember the reboot of The Night Stalker?

That was pretty damn awful.

I understand there's a remake of The Prisoner out there. I haven't actually seen it, but I can't imagine it's very good.

And, well, of course, damn near every horror movie remake that's come out.

I found it...unmemorable.

It will air on AMC in Nov, iirc. Stars Jim Caveziel with Ian McKellan as the eternally new Number Two. That right there sounds pretty worthwhile. And filmed in Africa (most likely the geographical setting will once again be obscure). I'm keeping an open mind. If they're smart, they will change it signficantly from the un-copy-able original. The Prisoner can't be a super-spy; it would be better for him to be a confused but resourceful common man type. Jimmy Stewart, not Steve McQueen.

Was the Tim Burton remake of Planet of the apes a disaster? they never made a sequal. (not even to the Direct to DVD market)
