Knowing Hollywood nowadays, they must make a remake of an original classic. These are the 30 films that they simply must not make a remake from.

Personally I'm fine with someone remaking the Harry Potter films since I thought they were a mixed bag from the 5 I saw. On the other hand, probably best if nobody does so that we don't have to endure another 8 or more films. ;) Ah but I'm a fan of the books so odds are remakes wouldn't satisfy me either. I just hope that if remakes ARE made they wait a looooong time to do so.

Otherwise of the films here I've seen I agree.

I disagree, a remake doesn't ruin an original, just itself.

So many remakes have been successful and so interesting, the problem is that Hollywood has been in s staple lately and the lack of ideas make them grab oldies, foreign movies and not-only and remake them for the current audience...

I approve of remakes.

More Harry Potter films... god no.

Remakes are fine, but it would be nice that they had something new on them then. Remaking something like Straw Dogs and Infernal Affairs (yes, Departed is shit.) and whatnot hasn't really moved the original idea to any particular direction, thus the point of remaking is only a) monetary b) lack of imagination and idea.

But there has been known of some good remakes as well. And remake as it is doesn't really affect the value of the original, it just sadly usually sidelines it, atleast in the eyes of the contemporary film viewer. Which is sad.

I agree with most of these, except I wouldn't mind seeing a remake for 2001 or Jaws, if they're done well. Also, I think the BTTF trilogy should never be remade.
Posted: 5 years, 8 months ago at Feb 12 15:56
agree with most of them :)

I agree these are classics which shouldn't even be touched now I don't disapprove of remakes I wish they would that bad to okay films and remake then to get a better film. But these are films that pop into your head and you say, "Remake!?! Never! Never! This films will not be touched as long as my lungs still draw breath!" LOL a little serious on my part sorry LOL but really great list :)

I kind-of disagree when it comes to Harry Potter, since I think that the films kind-of skimmed over so much especially when it came to the later films that it got really awkward. Half Blood Prince in particular really suffers because they hardly bother exploring Voldemort's origin like the book, and the actual stuff dealing with the 'Half Blood Prince' is so underbaked that it's actually a surprise that they bothered with the reveal at the end.
