Well, seems Jacob screwed up and the secret episode they had planned fell through at the last minute, so he pulled a last minute selection out of his sleeve and he and Stuart are discussing it today! Another comedy pick, and apparently this is a topic that has been on the backburner since sometime in 2020! What fun! Also in this episode is talk on …
 
It's been quite a long time since Stuart and Jacob covered a Roger Corman-adjacent picture on the show. In fact, not since season 1 all the way back in 2018. It's nice to know that after all of this time, a Corman picture hasn't changed. Whether he's directing or producing, it just has that feel. How does the remake compare, and where does it decid…
 
Well, if anything else you certainly can't say that Jacob doesn't make interesting selections for the show. Who knew that the Audrey Hepburn/Cary Grant classic had a modern retelling, and one that leaned so heavily into the arthouse cinema side as well. But the true question remains: are either of these any good, and do they work as comedies or dra…
 
Just in time for the real Independence Day, Stuart and Jacob sat down to discuss the 1996 Roland Emmerich movie and its overdue sequel, complete with pointless franchise setup at the end. Oh, weren't they ambitious? It the Super Mario Bros. Movie all over again! But, that being said, are either of these truly bad? I'm sure the boys have some though…
 
It's about time Stuart and Jacob talk about another comedic film on the show. Hell, it's the only way the podcast will ever be funny. And today they aren't messing around, as Jacob as brought in what is highly regarded as a classic in the comedy space, as well as it's 1998 follow-up starring both Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon from the original! Wi…
 
It's become a "They Remade It" staple at this point to cover at least one Disney live-action remake a year. They're fairly abundant and seem to dominate much of the discourse surrounding remakes and reboots, so it only makes sense. This time around is The Jungle Book, and in a situation similar to that of the Beauty and the Beast episode some years…
 
A listener request has come into the podcast!? Well, Stuart and Jacob are never ones to back away from a requested topic, especially when its about covering horror outside the month of October. I know Jacob is a big fan of that. How does the Brian de Palma classic compare against the Kimberly Peirce remake? Tune in, as always, to find out! Also in …
 
Eagle-eared (is that a saying?) listeners will recall Stuart going into detail about having watched Guillermo del Toro's Nightmare Alley some episodes ago and how much he did enjoy it. Well, the duo both decided that since it was a remake, they might as well hop on that train and cover the two noirs on the show! Who could've thought that in 2022 th…
 
It's been quite a while since the last episode talking about a film from Akira Kurosawa. To that end, it's been even longer since Bruce Willis has been discussed on the podcast as well. Consider this a homecoming for the show as Stuart and Jacob talk about samurai and westerns once again (though some would have you believe that this remake is solel…
 
Are the boys classic literature majors? No. In fact, far from it. And both Stuart and Jacob repeatedly make that abundantly clear throughout the course of the episode. But either way, Shakespeare is up on the chopping block today as the duo look at both the Zeffirelli and Luhrmann adaptations of the classic Romeo and Juliet story. Their thoughts on…
 
Season 5 is starting off and boy is Stu frustrated. Who knew always letting Jacob pick what movies set the tone for the rest of the year would be a bad thing? Either way, its time for Space Jam! While both seem to agree that the original doesn't tend to hold up in any regard, does that excuse the blatant IP festival happening in the new film? Is th…
 
Well, many would say that 2021 was a rather unfortunate year, but for the duo, it was leagues better than 2020 was, even with its own shortcomings being extremely apparent. But 2022 will no doubt be better, especially as Sonic 2 will be coming to theaters, which is discussed at length. Throughout the course of this longer than average episode, Stua…
 
The final traditional episode of 2021 is upon us and the duo is discussing one of the most well known and oft referenced pieces of Christmas pop culture to ever be created. Alastair Sim and Michael Caine will face off as different portrayals as the famed Ebenezer Scrooge, which one pulls it off better? And frankly, is there any better way to send o…
 
Christmas is here just in time, and this is the first of the holiday 2021 episodes of the podcast! Stuart and Jacob have a couple of doozies to talk about this time, and you might be surprised on their opinions. No, like really surprised. I just listened and I'm still shocked trust me. Also Larry the Cable Guy is here. Also in this episode is talk …
 
Stu and Jacob have officially wrapped up Halloween 2021, and its only the day before Halloween! Not to late, we don't think. It's always almost Halloween (excluding October 31st). This time around another staple is being discussed, and while there are a TON of adaptations of this movie, but the Lon Chaney classic and the 2004 adaptation of the stag…
 
It's Halloween in late November as the boys had a difficult time syncing their schedules to record and edit the two scary episodes. They did it though, and just in time for Thanksgiving! One of these is Jacob's favorite horror movie of all time, does Stuart feel the same? And how does the remake compare? Also in this episode is talk on the new Veno…
 
Once again Stuart and Jacob have returned to the Disney well, as its a fairly deep one that always yields results. However, a bit of a departure, as this remake is from quite a while ago. Long before the current boom of redoing everything that you've ever created as a studio. Does the original hold up at all, and can Glenn Close's performance save …
 
Oh boy, this may be the roughest go Stu and Jacob have had at a film in a long time. Who knew that an Ohio-based lawyer would obtain the rights to make a follow-up to one of the quintessential American films? And why does the film have 800 new characters introduced in it? Tune in to find out! Also discussed in this episode is the newest Marvel pict…
 
Halloween is coming a little early this year as the duo discuss the duel thrillers that are The Wicker Mans... Wicker Men... bah! It seems pretty obvious that Stuart and Jacob are going to agree this time around, but exactly to what extent we aren't sure. How did they feel about the over-the-top (and under-the-bottom) performances of the remake? Tu…
 
Stuart has finally done it and convinced Jacob to take the lead and produce an episode on a couple of Western films! All about two men at constant odds and a train ride awaiting one of them. Is it possible that one of these movies shows too much while the other shows too little? Can either of our intrepid hosts ever be satisfied? Also discussed in …
 
After a bit of a delay following an extremely busy month for our two hosts, they've come back in an all new episode featuring the first sports movie on the podcast, all about... pool! Or billiards. They may not be totally clear on the differences between the two, but they do know that lots of money is to be had in the game, and Paul Newman loves ly…
 
On this newest episode of They Remade It, Stuart and Jacob dive into a large cultural milestone of a film, one that is an important mark in the history of thrillers and horror pictures, and is also deemed the progenitor of the psycho-biddy, or "hagsploitation" genre. Not a lot of individuals realize that there was a TV movie adaptation of the origi…
 
Can you believe Stuart and Jacob are covering another couple of science fiction films so soon after tackling RoboCop? Well, they can, as its another fairly big one and its a genre they both care for. Which will prevail in the battle of "who likes what more"? Will the duo disagree again, or will they come to some surprising revelations on the road t…
 
Another tentpole discussion this time around, comparing what is considered by many to be a musical classic to Tim Burton's much darker take from the mid aughts. Plenty of people actively dislike the remake, but is it really as bad as people say? And surely the whimsical Gene Wilder romp isn't perfect, is it? Make sure to listen and find out what St…
 
This time around its a straight user suggestion on the podcast as Stuart and Jacob both take a look at the "romantic" crime-thriller The Postman Always Rings Twice! Listen as the duo discuss the differences between the casts, the representation of the stories and their themes, and why Jacob thought this was Death of a Salesman until he started actu…
 
It's the 50th traditional episode of the show, and Jacob acted accordingly, by taking the originally planned sci-fi episode and removing it in the schedule (don't worry, it'll show back up at some point he's assured me). But why was this done? Stuart and Jacob decided that the 50th episode called for a slightly bigger tentpole amongst remade films,…
 
In the midst of the aftermath of the most recent snowstorm, Stuart and Jacob meet up (virtually) once again to discuss two Disney family movies that neither had seen before. Well, they both think they may have seen the one from the early 2000's but for the life of them they just can't remember. Do either of these hold up or are they groan-inducing …
 
2020 is behind us and Stuart and Jacob are looking forward to a much more prosperous 2021, and they are starting it off with a bang, talking about too films that couldn't be more identical while also being almost entirely different. Its a tough talk this time around just attempting to figure out how to accurately compare the two films! This episode…
 
Another year comes to a close, and boy what a year it was. Not in a good way, though that should go without saying. However, it seems like Stuart and Jacob continue to flourish and in fact grow despite the year itself! Throughout the course of this longer than average episode, Stuart and Jacob discuss varying aspects of the year, reviewing The Osca…
 
For the last traditional episode of 2020, Stuart and Jacob once more dive into the Disney vault to cover yet another of their animated classics and its live action counterpart. There is plenty to cover and the live action Aladdin had its share of criticisms and controversy. Does it hold up from an *attempted* objective viewing? Who knows. This epis…
 
Back at it again with the silent movies, but with a title featuring Buster Keaton, how could Stuart and Jacob refuse! The film was taken and remade a number of times, with one of the most recent interpretations being right before the turn of the century, replacing Keaton with Chris O'Donnell. Surprisingly, besides a more modern setting there are a …
 
A late end to Halloween, but Stuart and Jacob are happy to provide. Especially with a couple of titles that actually spark some horror this time around. They compare one mini-series to a collection of more recent films that try to be scarier, and end up finding themselves at almost 9 hours of total watch time. However will they persevere? This epis…
 
Halloween has officially begun early on They Remade It as it is finally the season for it, and therefore it is finally the time for some horror movies. And this time around, Jacob finally has gotten his way and the duo are covering some goofy horror from the early 90's and the franchise's most recent entry. Does this new sequel hold up compare to t…
 
Today, in an episode which both Stuart and Jacob agree should've been the season 3 finale, the Seven Samurai and its American counterpart The Magnificent Seven get compared. The direct link between samurai films and the American western are examined and in this case, the duo find out which does a better job at telling the same story. This episode c…
 
In another episode where Stuart almost wasn't able to obtain a copy of one of the films to be discussed, the duo talk about a couple of films based on the short story and stage play of the same name. If that does ring a bell, how about the classic Germanic tale of Faust. No? Ok, maybe the episode of The Simpson's where Homer goes to hell? Ok, now y…
 
It's pretty much impossible to escape Disney's pull, as the company not only has acquired plenty of franchises to remake, reboot, and sequelize, but they've done it with their own content plenty over the past fifty years. So, Stuart and Jacob take a look at Tron and it's sequel that no one had really been expecting, Tron: Legacy. Both of these film…
 
This time around Stuart and Jacob are tackling a suggested episode. At least for the concept, they ended up picking the two versions of the film to watch. There are a lot of adaptations of the original Brewster's Millions source material, including a film older than the 1945 one being discussed today (although unfortunately that is considered to be…
 
Did you know that Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds is a remake? Well, technically it isn't and is more so just a borrowed title, but both films have Nazis and that sure is something. Is there any possible way that the 1978 film with the original correctly spelled title of Inglorious Bastards can live up to something created by a director both Stuar…
 
It's official, the lockdown has driven both Stuart and Jacob so mad that, even with all their perceived downtime, they barely watched anything between this and the last episode. Its okay though, as they both have been dying to talk about these two movies from a franchise whose games they are only familiar with in the loosest sense of the words. How…
 
At Stuart's request, the duo return to another series of heist films nearly two years after their original look at the Ocean's Eleven films. And what a return to this form, as one film has the presence of Sir Michael Caine and the other has a variety of name actors in its own right. Tons of stunt driving and gold pilfering abound in this episode. T…
 
To compensate for the headache that was editing Hellboy (thank Jacob and his hellish audio), this podcast comes a bit sooner than usual. After this its back to the routine schedule! Jacob is always looking for an excuse to talk about Japanese animated films, but the remakes are much scarcer under that criteria. Boy did he stumble across the motherl…
 
Firstly, let it be known that this one was delayed so that Jacob could fix his audio to the best of his ability as his microphone broke down on him (and in the middle of a quarantine, no less). There is an echo as well later on in the episode but it fades after some time, apologies for the inconvenience. All that aside, the boys are tackling a more…
 
The boys are tackling two films with all-star casts this time around (debatable in regards to the latter), and Stuart and Jacob need to decide whether that means a film is inherently good or not. Chances are, that answer will be no. Also be known that in this episode we have the longest Full Circle to date, so be prepared for that! This episode con…
 
In what is officially the fourth Disney Animated Masterpiece being covered on this very podcast, Stuart and Jacob look at 1991 Best Picture nominee Beauty and the Beast and its 2017 remake of the same name. Does the reputation of the terrible live-action remake ring true with one of Disney's most beloved classics? The boys are gonna find out! This …
 
It's season 3, and it's starting off right with laughs and japes as the duo discuss the first Muppet film and compare it to the franchise's big comeback in 2011. And with the episode comes the perfect test case, as Stuart has little to no prior knowledge of the history of the characters before this. Well, besides Muppet Christmas Carol, and really …
 
Another year comes to a close, and the duo are attempting to look back fondly on this previous decade. Well, not necessarily in the episode as that is primarily focused on 2019, but they are being positive. And why wouldn't they? 2019 marked new jobs for the both of them and a big move for Stuart! Throughout the course of this longer than average e…
 
Due to a rendering issue that pushed the release of this episode back two days, this episode is releasing a little late. But better late than never as some schmuck once said. Neither Stuart nor Jacob had seen any of the Godfather movies in full up to this point, and they decided to rectify that! This, of course, is to varying results. What can be s…
 
Closing out the month of October, or perhaps the beginning of November, is another horror/thriller film that had Stuart and Jacob pleasantly surprised. Whereas last year they only got to do one "Halloween movie", this time around they get to tackle a second. And of course it had to be on a film that has both Atticus Finch himself AND the irreplacea…
 
The boys get back to another horror film, harking back to last year's Halloween horror fest. We'll bet Jacob is beyond pleased. Frankenstein and Young Frankenstein were both classics and pioneers in their own right, just for different genres. And this time around, Stuart and Jacob compare these two cinematic staples to the best of their abilities. …
 
Not since The Little Shop of Horrors episode have we had a full musical to talk about. Let alone two of them! Not many remember (or know for that matter) about the Disney helmed 2003 remake of The Music Man, let alone that Matthew Broderick was in the starring role. However, Jacob and Stuart do! Somehow. This episode also has (surprise!) more music…
