The Top Ten

1 Casablanca
2 Gone with the Wind

4 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

5 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.

Tom Hanks is Forrest Gump.

Tom hanks. No one else. - Beatlesboy9

8 2001: A Space Odyssey
9 Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark

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

12 The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
13 Raging Bull
14 It's a Wonderful Life
15 Double Indemnity

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

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.
