Which of These 19 Movies Should Never Be Remade?

by | October 5, 2017 | Comments

Remakes and reboots are all too common these days, and every time a new one is announced, movie fans tend to let out a collective sigh. We decided to ask our followers on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram what movies they thought should never be remade, and we got an understandably enthusiastic response.

Robert Zemeckis’ beloved Back to the Future made it to the top of the list on both Twitter and Instagram (it was #3 on Facebook), so fans will be happy to know that Zemeckis himself has said it will remain untouched as long as he’s aliveThe Godfather and The Shawshank Redemption also both made it into the top 5 on all three platforms, so here’s hoping the studios don’t get any funny ideas about them either. See below for the full list, vote on the films you least want to see remade, and tell us in the comments what else you think should be kept sacred for cinematic posterity.
