Movies That Can't Be Remade/Updated

Recommended Posts

Found this on another forum and figured I'd post here. As we all know, movies tend to get remade quite a bit, and sometimes with a setting update to contemporary times of the new film's release. So thought I'd ask guys what are some movies that can't be remade in your opinion, or at least if they were, can't be updated to modern times. Will list a few I think will apply as well:

Jurassic Park
Jaws
The Exorcist
Ace Ventura

Just to name a few. Thoughts?

Blazing Saddles, even though the film is ultimately anti-racist and the use of its... let's say "racial language" is all within that context, there is NO WAY any Hollywood studio would green light it today.  It a classic though!

Gone With The Wind could never be remade. Nor could Labyrinth, The Dark Crystal, Edward Scissorhands, Highlander, and The Nightmare Before Christmas just to name a few.

Jumanji. Like it was remade, but it shouldn’t have been. There was super duper no need for that remake haha.

Agreed. Both remakes were horrible. But that's with most movie remakes.
