^^I haven't watched the remake. The original version was so perfect to me that I see no reason to watch a remake. I liked all three Girl movies in the series but the first one was especially awesome. The scenery alone makes the movie wonderful. Warning tho, parts of this are hard to watch (possibly the same in the remake).
I kinda feel the same way about my favorite movies. I won't watch the remakes of Footloose or Carrie. I did watch the remake of The Karate Kid because it was such a different story. Still not as good as the first one tho. And I think I saw at least part of the remake of Psycho. Just can't beat the original.
