If this counts, I enjoyed both Let the Right One In, and Let Me In.

Star Trek. Without getting into a huge wall o' text, the franchise was stagnant and needed a reboot. I loved it. One of the best sci-fi films I've ever seen, and I've seen at least 42% of them.

Call me someone with low standards, but I like most of the slasher remakes (Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween). I think if the originals didn't exist, the reboots would have made great standalone movies. Especially Rob Zombie's Halloween--the profanity in the Meyers' home was a little over the top, but I can't remember a time I've actually FELT the raw brutality in a horror movie. Very realistic, as far as movie killers go.
By that same rationale, I liked the Karate Kid remake. I know it's popular to hate on it because of Jaden Smith and how timeless the original is, but I apply the same logic as the monster movies--if Jaden wasn't famous because of his parents and Pat Morita wasn't so loveable in the '80s version, I think more people would have been open to it.

Does aliens v. the predators series count?

@wilcononomous: I had seen it. They should have done that instead of War Zone for the second....

A bit off subject for the OP:
Did you just call Judge Dredd an awful movie? Perhaps if you use the IMDB's Genres: Action | Crime | Sci-Fi | Thriller
BUT I submit what if you change the Genres to Genres: Action | Comedy | Sci-Fi | Thriller?
I saw this movie with no previews to judge my expectations and laughed my butt off, I thought it was a clever comedy and I like this movie.

@caffeine_dude: I'll agree with your premise that it was an entertaining action comedy, but it was an awful adaptation of the comic book.

However, I will not go so far as to call it a good movie. I reserve that for quality movies like Doom. :)

Star Trek was an amazing reboot. Was never a big fan of the franchise, but I love this version of it.
J.J. Abrams does no wrong, except Lost IMO.
Rob Zombies first Halloween was great. The second, not so much.

The Dukes of Hazard and Bad News Bears remakes where funny and stuck to the original material for the most part. I enjoyed them. They are fun.
21 Jump street was a fun redo with Jonah's comedy spin on it.

I enjoyed the new Spiderman movie with Andrew Garfield much more than any of the Tobey Maguire ones.

Another vote for Star Trek, showing the origin of the characters in the crew gave a great insight into what they became in later movies, and was action packed and funny - I may be in the minority, but I liked the humor in ST4.

Klaatu barada nikto
"Klaatu barada nikto" is a phrase originating from the 1951 science fiction film The Day the Earth Stood Still. "Klaatu" refers to a name of the humanoid alien protagonist of the film. Klaatu (Michael Rennie) commanded Helen Benson (Patricia Neal) that, were anything to happen to him, she must utter the phrase to the robot Gort (Lockard Martin). In response, Gort relented from destroying the Earth and resurrected Klaatu from death.

GORT is the first and best

I thoroughly enjoyed the new STAR TREK film, but the reboot of the James Bond series CASINO ROYALE was excellent and completely shifted the tone of the series from campy adventure to dark and edgy.
