Rules: Tell me 2 movies you believe should NEVER get remade, because it is perfect the way it is, and I'll add it to the list.  If we don't have enough, I will take more suggs.  If we have too many, I will do a part two.  Thanks!  Will post the list soon!

I remember a poll like this about untouchable movies.

FYC:

The Shawshank Redemption

The Godfather

Inception

Memento ( they are making already a remade, it is sad, I hope that they will cancel it.)

Lord of the Rings ( I guess It is not eligible there is already a ton of adaptation of it.)

Gladiator ( if they remake it, it will be crap like all the Hercules movies.

Psycho (they made crappy sequels (Bad Idea), a prequel series, but I didn't hear about remade)

Blade Runner ( The sequel was good but not remake pls)

Dune ( they will make a remade but this kind of movies just don't need it.)

They may cancel some of the upcoming remakes... a few years ago they were planning a Roadhouse remake, but it got cancelled and we dodged the bullet!  ;D

Narni, you have to let me think about this, I think the movies that I rated 9/10 are perfect as they are and do not need a new version and really are many movies that come to mind.

Narni, I think I have my options after all.
The Shining: The great horror movies of the 80s and 70s are being terribly redone and anyway this is a perfect movie as it is.

Risky Business: teen movies in the 80s were great, they had interesting characters and turned out to be smart representing some everyday teenage problems, however, teen movies are now misogynistic and stupid and if this movie is remade it would fall into these same cliches

You don't want (or expect) to see a gender reversed remake of Casablanca with Rickie Blaine as the protagonist?

I would like to nominate Ben Hur but because it is already a remake I don't think it fits the list.
Choices:
Spartacus
High Noon

Ben Hur is fine (I'm assuming you mean the old one), because it never shoulda been remade and never should be remade again.  :)

Thank you, Juan!  Yes, I agree they should never remake Back to the Future.  That would just be... sad.  :)
A Princess Bride remake would be good in theory, but they would probably just make it stupid.

A remake of Back to the Future would be really scary, knowing what movies are like about teenagers today would make it a very stupid cartoon about stupid teenagers.

Yes!  I'm sorry, but teenagers in movies are stupid!  :D  And not just in a realistic way, but they're just annoying.
