You would think that the longer someone has to work on something, the better it will be. Unfortunately, when it comes to studios revamping our favorite films, this isn't always the case.

Whoever coined the term "It's worth the wait" had obviously never seen these movies!

Tron - 28 Years

The original, which came out all the way back in 1982, was a veritable cult classic. Sure, it looked like crap, but at the time it was cutting edge. Unlike the 2010 edition of Tron: Legacy, which was really just an excuse to see Olivia Wilde in skintight clothing.

Mad Max - 29 Years

Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome was an insane, action-packed thrill ride, that was way too much for 1985 audiences to handle. When Fury Road came out in 2015, everyone who never saw the first couldn't believe it, but really, it was just better special effects. Yawn.

Star Wars - 32 Years

It was good to see Carrie Fisher return to her badass role in this popular sci-fi series, but I think I speak for all of us when I say we could have gone another few years before seeing this one return. How about you force awaken me when the plot gets interesting...

Gene Wilder Had A Lot Of Demands Before Becoming Willy Wonka And We're So Happy He Did

There are few actors who seem to care as much as Gene Wilder did. The iconic actor was an absolute treasure and the effort he put into his roles was clearly evident. Watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory was always a pretty big moment for people when they were kids. You honestly don't know fear until you watch the creepy boat tunnel scene and experience a type of terror that makes no sense. But even though Willy Wonka kind of frightened us, we still loved his goofy nature and his outlandish attitude. Wilder had many hit movies, but it's


'Growing Pains' Stars Reunite To Reveal Their Favorite Memories From The Show We All Loved

Watching Growing Pains was one of the highlights of our week when we were kids. The Seaver family meant a lot to us, and it was such a sad day when it ended. Alan Thicke was the amazing patriarch of the family, but it was the kids that we all cared about. Kirk Cameron's character, Mike, was stealing hearts, Tracy Gold's character, Carol, was inspiring students, and Jeremy Miller's character, Ben, was causing trouble, but we loved him anyway. Recently, the three iconic and original Seaver children got together to share some of their favorite moments, and it makes us

'Top Gun' Sequel Gets A Release Date And A Title And We're On The Highway To The Danger Zone

Tom Cruise was easily the definitive star of the 80s and 90s. He had a lot of huge hits, but few were as amazing and iconic as Top Gun. Watching them fly their planes and play beach volleyball was super entertaining, and because it's 2018, of course they are planning to bring it back in some way. Nothing is safe from a reboot, remake or sequel, especially if Tom Cruise has a say. The Mission Impossible franchise is on its sixth movie now, with Cruise happily performing his own stunts and continuing to defy danger, but apparently that's not enough.


You Can Live In The '10 Things I Hate About You' House And It's Actually Amazing

We all remember watching 10 Things I Hate About You in the late 90s and becoming completely obsessed with Kat Statford's rebel style, or Bianca's collection of cute sundresses. The Stratford sisters were iconic for us, and we can all admit that part of the reason was their absolutely epic house. So many moments in that movie took place in that home, and it just felt like the most iconic and idyllic place for this story to unfold. I don't know how many times I thought that it would be comfortable to sit on the porch of my house and
