Top 10 Movies that Should Never Be Remade

Movies get remade all the time; however, these are the movies that should be off limits.
The Top Ten
1 Back to the Future

This is one of my favorite movies of all time. It doesn't need to be remade. It is perfect as it already is.

I actually read that they made it next to illegal to do a remake of Back to the Future or something.

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

2 The Godfather

This movie was enough for itself. Timeless movie. No need for a remake.

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

It will happen, I am warning you.

3 The Wizard of Oz

It's over 70 years old and still great after all these years. Time has not dulled the edge of this great movie and its wonderful cast of characters. Plus, one more thing: it must be said no one else can ever play the role of Dorothy again.

4 Casablanca

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

5 Gone with the Wind
6 Forrest Gump
7 Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
8 Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark
9 National Lampoon's Animal House

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

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

10 E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial
The Contenders
11 Ferris Bueller's Day Off
12 Jurassic Park

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

13 Jaws

PLEASE NO! This movie is absolutely perfect as it is. It's already gotten three crappy sequels. It doesn't need a crappy remake. If they do, they're probably going to replace the iconic shark robot with a bunch of CGI mayhem, and actors who can't replace the amazing performances by Roy Scheider, Richard Dreyfuss, and Robert Shaw.

14 The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
15 Home Alone
16 The Shawshank Redemption
17 Toy Story

Unless they just update the character graphics/CGI to 2020 standards, no way, man.

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 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!

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

20 Star Wars, Episode IV: A New Hope

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

21 Some Like It Hot

This was one of the most iconic comedies of its time and has never been equaled. Plus, who the hell could they ever find to replace Marilyn Monroe?

22 Titanic
23 Matilda
24 Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory

They already did a remake. It's called Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Not that great, honestly.

25 The Breakfast Club
