    I can recall just one.

    And it wasn't so much, "better," as it was, just as good. The modern techniques and cinematography made the modern version a joy to watch though.

    I read the book, then I watched them back to back to compare.

    The Cohen Brothers are second to none when it comes to directing.

    I don't care if a remake sticks to the original, as long as it's a good story by itself. For instance, I'm a big comic book fan, but I don't care if a movie takes liberties with the source material, as long as it stands on it's own as a good story. The Magnificent Seven remake just wasn't a good movie.

    Two good films. I would add "3:10 to Yuma" to that short list. Both excellent movies.

    I would say the opposite. But that might be an age thing. I dont think that they make films for me any more. These wretched marvel movies are the modern day westerns and before them the star wars type films were the modern westerns. And the star wars genre provides the reference points for todays directors. Its just explosions with a John Williams soundtrack.

    I would revise his statement to; most movies between the 1960s and 1990s sucked ass. To put that into perspective there's around 600 movies released per year in the US alone.

    Thats probably a thread in itself. When was the best time for movies ? Probably depends on what sort of films you like.

    Personal preference. I like the 40s & 50s movies, the 60s, 70s & 80s had some good ones but for me they were few and far between, the 90s onwards is a mixed bag.
    Not a major Eastwood fan, basically hated all his spaghetti westerns, Wayne for me is a mixed bag, some really good, some not so good.
