Kevin likes these movies, but he believes that some small changes could make them even better.

“This 1978 drama about steelworkers who are sent to fight in the Vietnam War could have earned even more profit if it had a prophet.”
__ __ __    __ __ __ __    __ __ __ __ __ __ ➔ __ __ __    __ __ __ __    __ __ __ __ __ __
“Val Kilmer plays thief-for-hire Simon Templar in this thrilling 1997 flick. My version would be particularly focused on the period of time that Simon spends doing something.”
__ __ __    __ __ __ __ __ ➔ __ __ __    __ __ __ __ __
“In this 1984 movie, Eddie Murphy plays a Detroit police officer who relocates to California. I would seek a sponsorship from a brand of cough drops.”
__ __ __ __ __ __ __    __ __ __ __ __    __ __ __ ➔ __ __ __ __ __ __ __    __ __ __ __ __    __ __ __
“Jim Carrey is okay in this 1994 superhero comedy, but I think that Mr. Hamill would be better.”
__ __ __    __ __ __ __ ➔ __ __ __    __ __ __ __
“This 1995 Pixar classic needs a scene in which a truck arrives to take away Andy’s parents’ car.”
__ __ __    __ __ __ __ __ ➔ __ __ __    __ __ __ __ __
“In my version of this 1969 Western, Rooster Cogburn would have a particular manner of walking.”

“In this 1978 film, a Los Angeles Rams quarterback, played by Warren Beatty, is mistakenly taken to the afterlife by his guardian angel and returns in the body of a millionaire industrialist, whom I think should have an ugly protuberance on his body, like a bump on a toad.”
__ __ __ __ __ __    __ __ __    __ __ __ __ ➔ __ __ __ __ __ __    __ __ __    __ __ __ __
“This 2011 fantasy movie is loosely based on a fairy tale about a ‘little’ girl. In my version, the titular crimson-cloak-wearing character will have a penchant for ascending.”
__ __ __    __ __ __ __ __ __    __ __ __ __ ➔ __ __ __    __ __ __ __ __ __    __ __ __ __
“In my remake of a 1999 horror movie, those Maine residents will have a fighting chance against that 30-foot crocodile when they are armed with an implement for gathering leaves.”
__ __ __ __    __ __ __ __ __ __ ➔ __ __ __ __    __ __ __ __ __ __
“This 2003 Disney movie about an Inuit hunter should have him transformed into a wild pig rather than a brown ursine creature.”
__ __ __ __ __ __ __    __ __ __ __ ➔ __ __ __ __ __ __ __    __ __ __ __
“In this 2006 romantic comedy, Russell Crowe plays a British investment broker who finds love. In my version, he is also a Shakespearean king.”
