5 Movies That Should Never Be Remade

Kelly Michele

Kelly has been a lover of movies since she was little. Although her movie tastes have changed a little since her younger days of Carebears and Mary Poppins, her love of film hasn't. She can generally be found watching any horror movie she can get her hands on, but will occasionally throw an indie film or documentary into the mix to shake things up. She speaks in movie quotes and uses film references in daily conversation; and she does all of this while attempting to change the world's negative opinion of fangirls.

    I would actually be interested in seeing a more technological remake of The Wizard of Oz. Perhaps because I was never a big fan of the original (I know, I know.)… but I can see your point. It would take a lot of the whimsy out of it and without the whimsy is it still the same movie?

    The one I agree with the most on your list is The Godfather. You’re absolutely right on all counts – Marlon Brando could never be re-cast and why would anyone want to re-cast him?? Would YOU want to be the actor that re-did his role? I wouldn’t.

    I’m absolutely guilty of being one of the people who appreciates a “standard” hour and a half movie. My attention span doesn’t suit 3 hour epics. The Godfather is the only 3 hour movie I’ve ever seen that didn’t FEEL like a 3 hour movie. It’s perfect the way it is!
