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 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.

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

8 Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark

The Contenders

11 The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
12 The Exorcist
13 Who Framed Roger Rabbit
14 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

15 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.

16 The Breakfast Club
17 Toy Story
18 Pulp Fiction
19 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

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