Movies That Should Never Be Remade

Movies get remade all the time however these are the movies that should be off limits in remaking.

The Top Ten

1 Gone with the Wind
2 The Godfather

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

This movie was enough for itself. Timeless movie. Don't need no remake. - zxm

I agree it's a badass movie no need to remake it

Come on we all know the remake is gonna suck - hetapai

3 The Wizard of Oz

Its over 70 Years old and still great after all these years, time has not dull the edge of this great movie and its wonderful cast of characters plus one more thing and it must be said no one else can ever play the role of Dorothy again. - egnomac

4 Casablanca

A remake wouldn't amount to a hill of beans...

5 Forrest Gump

Tom Hanks is Forrest Gump.

Tom hanks. No one else. - Beatlesboy9

6 Back to the Future

Agree all the damn way. And no fourth part! Three is good enough. - dureckl

7 National Lampoon's Animal House

The absolute funniest movie ever made the thing that made Animal House funny was its cast mainly John Belushi its been mimicked so there's no reason to remake it. - egnomac

Animal House is the funniest movie ever made so no remakes please.

8 Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark
9 Raging Bull

It’s based on a true story. Why remake it again? - BUETBU91

10 The Shawshank Redemption

The Contenders

11 The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
12 The Exorcist


13 The Breakfast Club

HELL NO! Leave this classic as is.

14 Who Framed Roger Rabbit
15 Some Like It Hot

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

16 The Lion King

Please don't. I don't think they would do a Toy Story so my vote goes to this. However, I would love to see Scar again. But NO! Don't do it! - CDShark

17 Star Wars, Episode IV: A New Hope

Everyone on the planet knows this movie so why bother remaking it?

18 Lord 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.

19 Toy Story
20 Pulp Fiction
21 Spy Hard

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

22 Home Alone
23 Space 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.

No kobe, no lebron

24 Citizen Kane
25 Apocalypse Now
26 Jurassic Park

I hope this never gets remade even though they might do it anyway after Jurassic world 3 but I hope not.

27 Die Hard
28 Terminator 2: Judgment Day
29 Twilight

I honestly think this should be remade because of how terrible it is. the books and the movies are done poorly. we could have Hollywood go the Stanley Kubrick route and change most aspects of the books for the movies like kubrick did with some of his films. that way the movies will be more better and more well constructed than the books.

30 Gandhi
31 Johnny English
32 2001: A Space Odyssey
33 Fight Club
34 The Silence of the Lambs
35 Monty Python and the Holy Grail
36 Ghostbusters
37 E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial
38 Rear Window

A remake of this movie with the right people involved, could potentially be very good. - BeatlesFan1964

39 It's a Wonderful Life
40 Double Indemnity
41 Ferris Bueller's Day Off
42 Alien
43 Lawrence of Arabia
44 Predator
45 To Kill a Mockingbird
46 The Sound of Music
