In this way, it was very true to the original movie. There were many quality actors and actresses all throughout the movie that brought a wonderful array of talent and skill to the movie. Each one of them portrayed their characters in a very positive way. The overwhelming success of this movie also led the way for two more movies to be made after this one. These were Ocean’s Twelve and Ocean’s Thirteen and were just as widely acclaimed.

Movie Remake #3: Batman Begins (From the original Batman)
This new version of the movie did everything right. The storytelling element was very well handled. The dialogue was very well written but was not over the top. The director allowed the visuals within the movie tell the story while the character was the key to the fantastic storytelling. The Batman character was perfectly portrayed and was very easy to relate to for the audience. Another aspect of the movie that was top notch was the scenery and the location. While past versions of this movie looked very fake and comical, this current movie gave off a very real appearance. The entire location was made to be as real as possible with a gritty appearance that matched the overall tone of the movie.

Movie Remake #2: True Grit (From the original True Grit)
These two movies were based off of a very well written novel that a lot of people enjoyed.

The casting within the movie was very well handled and added to the movie in all of the best ways. And to help prove how well received the remake of the movie was, it has won a host of awards and had been nominated for many more awards.
