10 Movies that Should Never Get Remakes

We live in the world where life without entertainment is said to be meaningless. The main and common entertainment for people has been movies, mostly. The concept of movies has been around for generations but in different forms like theatres, stage dramas etc. The movies we are talking about are totally different.  Some are good some are bad some are worse. But following is the list of super awesome movies which should and can never get a remake.



Titanic is a blockbuster film released in 1997. It was directed by James Cameron. The story of titanic was based on the journey of the actual life sized ship named titanic along with its destruction. The movie seemed too real that many people became emotional during and after the movie. The story was full of romance and thriller. In distant future someone might try to remake the Titanic but will definitely fail because it had the story that made it “not remake-able” officially.


9.The Prestige

The Prestige is a 2006 drama, mystery and thriller movie directed by Christopher Nolan. The story is set in the end of 19th century revealing the rivalry between two magicians. The cast chosen by Nolan was nothing less than perfect, Bale, Jackman and Caine. What can go wrong? The screenplay mind f**ks every single viewer up till the very last minute of the movie. The viewer cannot get bored because the mystery is so damn well good that the curiosity gets the best of everyone. The remake of any Nolan movie is seriously the dumbest thing to do, but especially no remake can be done of this movie because every single thing is beyond awesome in this movie.


8.American History X

American History X was released in 1998. It was directed by Tony Kaye. It is the best movie against racism up to date. The story was so deep that it might have affected some people to stop being racist and start loving the creatures of GOD. Edward Norton had played his role wonderfully, which was him acting as a crazy racist person who used to blame everything on the African American people, but in time he learned his lesson. The screenplay was so marvelously that remaking it wouldn’t even cross people’s minds. Although there have been many movies against racism but no movie, I repeat no movie is even close to being as good as this one.


7.Fight Club

Fight Club was a 1999 Drama and somewhat Action movie. It was directed by David Fincher. Fight Club has a mind f**k story involving 2 characters played by two of Hollywood’s most famous actors; Brad Pitt and Edward Norton. The screenplay was awesome, the acting was great and the last 15 minutes of the movie paralyzed every single person watching it. The Fight Club can’t be remade because there is nothing to be improved. Not even a single Goddamn thing. Even if there is someone foolish enough to remake it, he would have to go through a lot of people (fans) to do so because people do respect the Classics.



Gladiator is a 2000 action packed movie directed by Ridley Scott. It contains ancient roman story about a man, who was betrayed by his own corrupt people. It is filled with action even till the last minute of the movie. Anyone who has any interest in movies might have seen this awesome movie and would have loved it immediately after watching it. The legendary actor Russell Crowe has starred as the main character in this movie. The story was so brilliant that even after including more action or whatever won’t win people’s hearts because they already belong to the GLADIATOR.

  1. The Titanic, Gladiator, Lord of the Rings and the Matrix should never be remade – that I agree with. Even Back to the Future, because it was an epic trilogy (in a good sense). However, all the others were a bore and I think they should be remade a 100 times just to get the revised story right.

  2. Yes you are right Felipe Torres. The first movie was released in 1929 and was named Atlantik. There have been other remakes as well but mostly had the story about action, drama or history. Cameron improvised it all by adding visuals and romance making it one of a kind which should never get remake.

  3. Unfortunately, Back to the Future wasn’t the first to introduce time travel. I think it was The Time Machine in 1960 to introduce it.
    Very good list non the less

  4. Didn´t you know? Titanic from 1997 IS a remake! xd The first movie´s from the 20s or 30s.

  5. “I admit that The Departed is a remake of a 2002 Hong Kong movie Infernal Affairs but, the English version is far much better”

    Never before has anything in human history ever been so wrong. The level of wrong you have managed to achieve is impressive if not infuriating.

  6. Interesting list, but you missed out some very important choices, such as the whole original star wars trilogy (4,5,6)
    and a LOT of good classics.

  7. The departed does not belong on this list because, as stated it is a remake, and the original Infernal Affairs is far superior in virtually all aspects; character development, cinematography, everything.

  8. Yeah You Missed Alot Of Classic Movies…

    Anyways Your Top 10 Choice is Also no doubt is good Enough

  9. The Titanic itself is a remake. The original dates from 1953
    made by Jean Negulesco. That movie also includes a love story and a ‘bad guy’.
