We can't imagine anyone but Marlon Brando as Vito Corleone. - egnomac

This was one of the most iconic comedies of its time and it has never been been equaled plus who the hell could they ever find to replace Marilyn Monroe. - egnomac

14Who Framed Roger Rabbit
15Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

OH, NO NO NO! This movie can't be remade! It is already perfect and it just shows how lazy you are when you don't have any ideas for a movie and decide to remake a classic. if you don't have any ideas, then you shouldn't be making movies at all.

16The Breakfast Club
17Pulp Fiction
18Spy Hard

Leslie Nielsen was the ideal man for the funniest film ever, so no remakes!

19Space Jam

I think this movie's already terrible in my eyes so I wouldn't be surprised if they remade it along with looney tunes back in action.
