egnomac
Movies get remade all the time; however, these are the movies that should be off limits.

The Top Ten

1 Gone with the Wind
2 Back to the Future

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

This is one of the best movies ever, I hope they don't remake it. - PeeledBanana

3 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

4 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

5 Forrest Gump

Tom Hanks is Forrest Gump.

Only if they ley play Tom Hanks

Tom hanks. No one else. - Beatlesboy9

6 Casablanca

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

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 The Shawshank Redemption
10 Raging Bull

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

The Contenders

11 Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
12 E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial

Already did... Twice... Once for the Atari, another in 2002... they both stunk. - Maddox121

13 The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
14 The Exorcist
15 Ferris Bueller's Day Off
16 The Breakfast Club

HELL NO! Leave this classic as is.

17 Who Framed Roger Rabbit
18 Jurassic Park

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

19 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

20 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.

21 Home Alone
22 The Lion King

Disney doesn't care about new and innovation only $$$ that's why we have 2 to 3 remakes a year now and a princess movie almost every year a star wars movie every year pirates going on for too long and pixar now making too many sequels its all because that mouse wants his money the only movies that are wroth it are the marvel movies to this point - ikerevievs

It sucks that it's getting remade, just to take over the box office more than the animated original did.

Hey, they pulled off a couple of remakes like Jungle Book and Cinderella. I trust that Disney can do with this. - Mcgillacuddy

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

23 Jaws
24 Star Wars, Episode IV: A New Hope

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

25 Pulp Fiction
26 Toy Story
27 Titanic

Shouldn't have been made the first time. It stank.

28 Matilda
29 Spy Hard

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

30 Gandhi
31 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

32 Citizen Kane

After the disaster that was the Psycho remake, I think Hollywood should leave the classics alone.

33 2001: A Space Odyssey
34 Apocalypse Now
35 Die Hard

Please don't - EliHbk

36 Terminator 2: Judgment Day
37 Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory
38 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.

39 Johnny English
40 Fight Club
41 The Silence of the Lambs
42 Monty Python and the Holy Grail
43 Ghostbusters
44 Rear Window

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

45 It's a Wonderful Life
46 Double Indemnity
47 Alien
48 Sixteen Candles
49 Full Metal Jacket
50 Groundhog Day
