1 Back to the Future

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

Sorry to tell u but...

2 The Empire Strikes Back
3 Ferris Bueller's Day Off
4 Forrest Gump

Only if they ley play Tom Hanks

5 E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial

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

6 Jaws
7 Jurassic Park
8 Home Alone
9 Matilda
10 Titanic

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

The Contenders

11 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

It's probably gonna gross over 2 billion dollars at the box office - PeeledBanana

18 Blade Runner
19 Full Metal Jacket
20 Groundhog Day
21 Rain Man
22 Hook
23 Rush Hour

This and all the others on this list should never be remade!

31 Memento
32 Goodfellas
33 The Godfather
34 Seven
