Great list :)

I never knew about Weekend at Bernie's being a remake, that's hilarious. There are a hundred more you could list as well. (A Fistful of Dollars/Yojimbo)

The title should (more accurately) be "Foreign Films, Inferior American Counterparts".

The Eye is a Thai film not Chinese

@l8t3r: Not Thai. Technically it's a Hong Kong/Singapore production.
