I read the whole debate about what happened with Siddon's vote, and it's a complicated issue. I'll try to sum up my opinion.

I'm sorry to hear that you disliked Real Genius so much. It's been one of my favorite comedies since the first time I saw it. It's one of my favorite Val Kilmer movies.

That sounds like it could be a fairly accurate prediction, but I think it might be easier to predict the bottom 4 than the top 4 in this HoF. There were a few movies that seemed to be disliked by a...

I agree that this is one of the few cases where the remake is actually better than the original movie. In this case, I think the cast is a big part of the reason why this movie is better.

I didn't know that Eddie Murphy was ever considered for this movie. I've never been a fan of his, so I'm glad that he wasn't in it. I think he might have ruined the movie for me.
