• 5 Ridiculous Foreign Sci-Fi Remakes

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 14 comments

Sometimes a remake really does the original movie justice. That said, sometimes the remake is just downright dire. Here are five of the most ridiculous foreign remakes.

I'm not sure how breaking rocks can help you in an intergalactic war, but this guy sure thinks it does. I guess that’s all the proof I need.

Turkish Star Wars

Why are Superman and Spider-Man holding each other and dancing? Even better, why is Spider-Man a woman?!

Indian Superman

Run, E.T.! Some guy who looks like Super Mario is going to beat you up.

Turkish E.T.

I know this isn't technically sci-fi, but it's so over the top that it makes Michael Jackson look normal.

Indian Thriller

The first time I saw this, I thought Kirk was in a duel with ALF. On second glance, it appears to be a remake of the classic battle with the Gorn. This time, though, the alien shoots fire and wears a one-piece suit he bought at The Janitor’s Outpost.

    Nice! The Indian Thriller (although I've seen it before) is brilliant. She only screams at the end and doesn't it sound like he is saying killer or worse kill (h)er. Also Indian movie on VOLGA (Russian river and automobile). Golimar mar mar!

    That Indian Super man irked me in the wrong way. And the Turkish star trek is just full of LOLZ I'm a new generation so I'm not much one for the original series , but that video makes me want to rather watch the original series.

    :D  It's been years I haven't watched Turkish Star Wars - (The man who saved the Earth - Dünyayı Kurtaran Adam)! Wish you'd understand the speech also! That's horrifyingly funny!

    Pity, the guy who's at the lead role paralyzed couple of days ago. (Cüneyt Arkın) :(  All my childhood spent watching his action movies. May god help him.

    The first video had a 70's remix of the original Battlestar Gallactica theme! Epic!!
