Poll Suggestion: IMDb Poll Board: Movies That Should Never Get Remade!

Rules: Tell me 2 movies you believe should NEVER get remade, because it is perfect the way it is, and I'll add it to the list.  If we don't have enough, I will take more suggs.  If we have too many, I will do a part two.  Thanks!  Will post the list soon!

List: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls095333165/

Narni, you have to let me think about this, I think the movies that I rated 9/10 are perfect as they are and do not need a new version and really are many movies that come to mind.

Narni, I think I have my options after all.
The Shining: The great horror movies of the 80s and 70s are being terribly redone and anyway this is a perfect movie as it is.

Risky Business: teen movies in the 80s were great, they had interesting characters and turned out to be smart representing some everyday teenage problems, however, teen movies are now misogynistic and stupid and if this movie is remade it would fall into these same cliches

You don't want (or expect) to see a gender reversed remake of Casablanca with Rickie Blaine as the protagonist?

I would like to nominate Ben Hur but because it is already a remake I don't think it fits the list.
Choices:
Spartacus
High Noon

Ben Hur is fine (I'm assuming you mean the old one), because it never shoulda been remade and never should be remade again.  :)

Yes, I mean the 1959 version, I didn't remember that awful remake that they did a few years ago the truth never i bothered to see it, the trailer said it all.

Thank you, Juan!  Yes, I agree they should never remake Back to the Future.  That would just be... sad.  :)
A Princess Bride remake would be good in theory, but they would probably just make it stupid.

A remake of Back to the Future would be really scary, knowing what movies are like about teenagers today would make it a very stupid cartoon about stupid teenagers.

Yes!  I'm sorry, but teenagers in movies are stupid!  :D  And not just in a realistic way, but they're just annoying.

At this moment there are a lot of IMDb poll board suggestions. And I like that very much, these are my favorite polls! I have 4 pending.

My idea is to make 1 thread with a overview of all these suggestions. In that way you can bump all these suggestions at once. And the poll board members can easily pick the polls for their contribution.

I can't make this thread because I can't add the thread after it is posted and responsed.

Maybe you can do it if you like this idea.

That's a great idea, Hoekkie. :)

Everyone can edit their own posts now, so you can do it if you want.
