Movies that should be left alone. pro vs cons of remakes!! fun post

Posted by   + Show Post

There are just certain CLASSIC movies that should never be remade. "CARRIE" is one of those movies that stand the test of time  No matter how hard they try to update was already a perfect film that the original is the best.  This remake literally just gave away the ENTIRE movie, there is no reason to even rent or buy it, lol

So what are your favorite movies?

Dirty Dancing should be left alone. Nobody can replace Patrick.

 I think it's ok to remake movies several decades later.  I'm talking about when I'm too old to care, lol.  Sometimes I don't know that I'm watching a remake and then I actually like the movie enough to look it up only to find out it is in fact a remake.

I didn't like that they made a remake of Steel Magnolias but I watched it anyway.  I wasn't impressed at all.  I would have rather they did it when I was too old to care, lol.  We all have that one movie I suppose, lol.  If they don't remake movies then the newer generations may never get the chance to watch our favorites and what a shame that would be. 
Yeah, you guessed it...I'm a bit mixed about the topic, lol!

If they screw up The Crow, I'm gonna be pissed! I say this while wearing a t-shirt from the original, it says "Victims aren't we all?"

And I've had about enough of the Batmans, Hulks, and Spidermans. Just about every guy in Hollywood has played the lead in one of them.

Halloween. I almost cried when Rob Zombie remade it and made it horrible.

I agree Willy Wonka should have been left alone, as well as Footloose. The Breakfast Club should NEVER be remade.
