    There is something i like to call "subtle remake". It works like this: if a film is too decent to be remade, instead you make a film with a similar plot, but with different title, different characters, different setting, etc. For example, if you want to make a "subtle remake" of Star Wars, just make another space opera film with some references to the saga.

    The list of movies that shouldn't be touched is enormous and you haven't even scratched the surface. A better list would be movies that were touched but shouldn't have been. You can start with Planet of the Apes, King Kong, Godzilla, and Frankenstein.

    A studio would think of a re-make ONLY if a movie is a good one of its KIND. That means NOBODY would think of re-making a sui generis movie like Citizen Kane, Schindler's List, My Dinner with André,
    Koyaanisquatsi, Being John Malkovitch, Being There, Reds, Last Tango in Paris, Apocalypse Now, A Clockwork Orange, AI, Eyes Wide Shut, etc.

      If they remade Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, they should put Oliver Stone as director and some Oscar winner as the main actor. And the fact that the character is suppoused to be caucasian, i would recommend the great Denzel Washington.

    I've never actually seen Schlinder's List, but Watchmojo's description of what a remake would be like makes it sound like it would become a Michael-Bay-blow-'em-up travesty. As for movies that weren't on the list, I would have to say Alien, Aliens, and To Kill a Mockingbird.

    There are some classic films that could be remade like Gone with the Wind, Back to the Future, etc. But others, like Star Wars, Citizen Kane, etc. are too good to be remade. Instead, you could make a film with a similar plot, but a completely different story.

    The truth, remake is always bad and should be avoided. Is always someone getting a cash from the ideas and creations of past geniuses instead of working they're own... It happens with everything, movies, music, games... Ruins the gaming today. In the 80s to 2000 the games were a lot better with way less graphics and hardware power cause they needed to use creativity with what they had. Stupid gamers ruin games supporting cash grabs like dlcs instead of demanding full games and asking for remakes and remasters instead of supporting and asking new good games. Resident evil 2 remade is it, re1-3 defined a new entire horror genre in the 90s and should be untouchable but dumb gamers instead of asking for new amazing horror games styles like silent hills pt was gonna be they ask for remakes and remasters, pay dlcs ruining games and of course developers go with it, they get pay for doing nothing much just remake or remaster what was done and sell half a game and the other half in dlcs. Before online consoles every game was full and complete , how can technology decrease that for gamers instead of improvement? Because of they're own stupidity

    for all RU-clip makers and viewers let me tell you that there was one remake that stands out the best and that was and is the 1966 Columbia remake of the 1956 Paramount Ten Commandments,,,the 1966 remake was a perfect line by line remake,,,I saw it in 1968 in a third class theater in Tanjay Negros Oriental,,many people nowadays forget that there was a 1966 Ten Commandments,,,so I will test your memory,,,fill in the blanks and you get the actor as Moses.
    don't waste your time filling it up as Heston,,,there are four blank spaces and it is definitely not Charlton Heston...all the 1956 cast didn't reprise their roles in the 1966 remake,,,for instance there 's no way Fraser Heston could reprise his role as infant Moses in the 1966 remake as he would be ten years more or less .
    I know millions of viewers around the world had seen both versions and most of them got mixed up the remake as the original or vice versa...the 1966 Columbia was never reissued/rerelease theatrically / video copied is unfortunate that video cams didn't existed wayback in 1968,,,many people could have made a copy...that film was literally destroyed,,it was a classic Hollywood homicide,,,Paramount feared that Columbia's remake would make the 1956 inferior so Paramount ,I suspect may have paid a very large sum to Columbia and had the master copy burned..literally destroyed...for me if the 1966 version still existed I would watch it over and over again in parallel with the 1956 original...what do you say, babyboomers ?

    I see no reason 2001: A Space Odyssey couldn't be remade. The original would definitely benefit from some editing to improve the pacing. And it's not like the acting was anything special, so there are no "great performances" to suffer by comparison. With modern special effects and current scientific knowledge, an update would be welcome - if done by a skilled director, such as Denis Villeneuve, who did Arrival and the updated Blade Runner 2049, or even Christopher Nolan. I would personally love to see a remake.

    Many of the points on this list sound less like reasons that some of these films shouldn't be remade and more like lack of creativity. Shot for Shot remakes shouldn't be done, but I could think of many interesting hooks for remakes or sequels to several of these films. You sound like the whiners about the Star Wars universe who are perpetually saying this project or that project shouldn't be done. Get over it.
