We all know abut remakes, right? You take an old movie or TV show and then make it again, updating it for today's audiences. Think of Battlestar Galactica, Batman, Psycho et al.

So how about premakes? The idea here is to take a modern movie or TV show and then create from it an imagined original version made decades ago to show you how effects, etc, have changed over the years. Here's what I mean.

Is there anything you'd like to see pre-made?

Allowable comments

You can leave just about any kind of comment you like. You can argue, suggest I am (or anyone else is) wrong, leaving general messages of love – anything. However, you absolutely can't leave messages that attack other commenters (or me), are simple variations of "your review sucks" or that are misogynistic, racist, homophobic, etc: your comment will either be edited or deleted and you'll be barred from leaving any further comments. We want to keep it civil here.

Spoilers

You can hide a spoiler by putting <spoiler> before it and </spoiler> after it. Hover over a spoiler to reveal it!
