10 Movies that Should Never Get Remakes

5.Back to the future

Back to the future is a 1985 comedy movie which was a blockbuster at its time. It was directed by Robert Zemeckis. This movie was the first in which time travel was introduced, I think. The story in this movie has continuity which is distributed into 3 parts. The screenplay of all 3 parts was written so wonderfully that no glitch can be found in any 3 linked parts. This movie can never be remade because it is a classic and the attempt of remaking it would not only be stupid but will also get a lot of hatred from the fans of the real Back to the future.


4.The Lord of the Rings

The Lord of the Rings is an action, adventure and thriller movie based on the novel with the same name. Director Peter Jackson has briefly explained each and everything written in the novel and I might say even with more brilliance because of the super awesome and realistic action and not missing a single thing from the original story. The Director divided the novel into 3 movie parts and all of them are really brilliant in every aspect. The cast was chosen wisely and the camera and animation was superb. The idea of remaking this one is totally out of the question because the brilliant things can’t be copied exactly as it was made.



Inception is a 2010 super hit movie directed by Christopher Nolan. The story of inception is totally unique and seems out of nowhere. Nolan chose the cast wisely, mixed 2010 technology with super awesome story making it one of the EPIC movies of all time. Now the thing about making Inception again is out of question or is impossible to do so. The idea is so unique that it is the first to occupy the specific idea of dreams.

2.The Departed

The Departed is a 2006 crime thriller movie directed by Martin Scorsese. I admit that The Departed is a remake of a 2002 Hong Kong movie Infernal Affairs but, the English version is far much better because: The first thing is the cast, DiCaprio, Damon, Wahlberg and Nicholson. Do I need to say more? Secondly they have put a whole new level of thriller in it and have made it exciting till the last second of the movie. It’s a see before you die kind of a movie. Remaking it would be a real foolish thing to do because there is nothing; I repeat nothing to be improved. Not even the action.


1.The Matrix

The Matrix is the super awesome and one of Legen-wait for it-dary movies of all time. It was released in 1999 and was directed by Andy Wachowski and Lana Wachowski. The story has the continuity which is divided into 3 parts. The Matrix revolves around a fictional universe in which humans have become slaves of machines without realizing it. The story takes many different turns and is filled with awesome actions. Many scenes of The Matrix have been copied in many different movies, songs and other videos. Especially the infamous bullet dodge scene. The movie was epic, the cast was awesome and the story was full of epicness. This movie can never be remade, even if the producers get their hands on extreme technologies because there is no match of originality.

  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’.
