It’s hard to believe that Y2K was fifteen years ago, yet here we are. The years since have been filled with some great cinematic wonders, but today we focus on 15 films that were released 15 years ago in the year 2000. There is no order or preference, just a reminder of some films you may have forgotten from the turn of the century. Enjoy and if you have a favorite movie from 2000 that’s not on the list, be sure to mention it in the comments below!
Hollywood nowadays has a tendency to take any mediocre hit from the 70’s or 80’s and reboot it for a new generation, in what are obvious cash grabs. The usual formula follows taking what most consider to be an enjoyable film and turning it into a laughable mess of try hard comedy and special effects. Or turning a campy horror film into a gorefest. For instance, Sam Raimi’s ‘The Evil Dead‘ revolutionized the horror-comedy genre, while maintaining a sense of fear throughout. In it’s remake though, the film went in a much bloodier, and grotesque version of a fantastic story. Still enjoyable to some, but for others, very disappointing. Here are five films that weren’t all too great in the first place, that with a new age in film, could easily be remade into blockbusters.
