The Italian Job. The first one was meh, the second one was much better.

Ocean's 11. While the first one had the Rat Pack, the remake was so much more classy and didn't have that "rewrite on set" feel to it.

Cape Fear. Oh yes, there was an original before DeNiro rocked it out of the park.

The Departed. The remake was so much better.

Casino Royale. The first one was obviously meant to viewed on acid.
I agree that it is unlikely to measure up, but they do get remakes right once in a while and we can only hope this will be one of them.

I have another remake better than the original.----Payback with Mel Gibson.

IMO, The remake of True Grit was good, but it can't pass the original just case of John Wayne. But the remake of Red Dawn sounds ok, I just wished they woulda pick more manly men, not these Disney stars who can't act whatsoever.
