80's films they should never remake

Postby Captain Scarlet » Sun Sep 08, 2013 1:52 pm

After reading a discussion on Robocop (2014) I thought this could be fun.

So a list of films released from 1980-1989 that should not be remade.
Of course a bunch have had sequels or been rebooted, include them as well.

Hahahaha, triple lindy!

Also I didn't actually mind the new Evil Dead. Granted they could have called it something else like Dead Cabin, or Evil Woods or something to keep me from comparing, but still, not that bad :D

Good call Rlg.

I think cannonball run, Smokey and the bandit and Short circuit should also be added to the list
