Name Movies that Should Never Be Remade
 
Recently had an opportunity to acquire rights to a classic film that I hold in such high regard I wouldn't want to even think about, let alone actually do, a remake or sequel. What movies would you consider off-limits for a remake or sequel?

Star Wars IV, V, VI

Big Lebowski

There are more, but it's 2:30 am.

Casablanca
The Graduate
Clockwork Orange
Dirty Harry
Terminator
Kojack


There are scores of iconic movies that stand alone and should never be touched. Roles by Nicholson, Walken, DeNiro, that I don't think any producer in their right minds would touch. Might want to ask what should be remade.

Original Star Wars Trilogy
Raiders of the Lost Ark
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
Last of the Mohicans
Terminator and T2
Ghostbusters
Beverley Hills Cop
The Usual Suspects
The Abyss
Rocky
Poltergeist
Caddyshack
Meat Balls
Blazing Saddles

Not all but what I can think of right off the top of my head.

Casablanca
2001: A Space Oddessy
The Sting
The Great Escape
Oldboy
Blade Runner (director's cut)
Jaws

Just to name a few.

And to quote Jay Sherman from Comming Attractions (from the show The Critic) "If the movie is a remake of a classic, go see the classic!"

Casablanca was remade in the 80's as a tv series...totally bombed as you might expect. And there is a sequel\remake in the works.

Horrible idea.
