Whaaaaaaaa-? I don't even..Tell me you like The Lord of the Rings. Please?
Different interpretations of the same source material don't really count as remakes - eg Batman, Lord of the Rings, Let Me In etc. There are countless interpretations of Shakespeare, but you don't think of them as remakes of the previous version.
Totally OT, but I just noticed that Rebecca and I are both Zombies in our Avatars ok back to topic
Incidentally, I do think Clueless was a good remake of Jane Austin's Emma, and 10 Things I Hate About You was a great remake of The Taming of The Shrew. They both did a terrific job of respecting the source material while removing the period elements and making it current. And I've nothing against period pieces, in fact I prefer them, in general, but those two films both handled the 'modern update' concept very nicely.
