The remake did not work out very well, even though it had great actors in Jodie Foster and Chow Yun-Fat. So the 1946 version is better.

Destry (1954)
Both Destry and the 1939 Destry Rides Again were entertaining. I give the vote by an edge to the older version with James Stewart and Marlene Dietrich.

The 1965 version is compelling and edge of the seat. The 2004 version does not work very well.

Godzilla (1998)
In the 1956 version with Raymond Burr, A 400-foot dinosaur, wakes from undersea hibernation off the Japanese coast because of nukes. So that makes it the better version.

Both version are good. The 1948 version has more emotional tone while The Messenger has great action.

Here are a list of remakes and sequels that might be good or might be bad. Some repeat older Hollywood versions, some copy foreign films, mostly from France. What is it about Hollywood that thinks they can make a French film better? Remakes from other countries
