Is Hollywood Out Of Original Ideas? 5 Shows and Movies That Shouldn’t be Remade

Paramount
These days it seems like everything hitting the theaters is some sort of remake, sequel or prequel. There are even some films and television shows being redone, that probably shouldn't be touched, but as usual Hollywood wants to make a quick buck. We are talking about shows/movies that are classic and beloved by their fan base. They took 'Charlies Angels' and made it into a couple successful films, which seemed okay, but now they are rehashing the TV show? How about 'Dirty Dancing'? Does that really need a remake? Here are five upcoming shows/movies that should be left alone, not remade.

Footloose

 
 

First of all, the first 'Footloose' while considered a classic, is not one of the better movies of all time. This is one of the ones that is beloved by it's fans and now they are remaking it just to give professional dancers something to do.

Top Gun

 
 

I have never been a fan of 'Top Gun', so a remake of this movie already sounds like a giant waste of time to me. I know that this is a favorite film to some, so why ruin it with some stupid Hollywood remake? Right now the remake is just rumors, but it seems like whenever there is a rumor, there is a remake waiting to happen.

Dirty Dancing

 
 

I'll admit that I have seen this movie a couple of times. It's an 80's staple. Now it looks like even this classic is going to be getting a face lift. Patrick Swayze is rolling over in his grave. Didn't they learn their lesson with 'Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights'?

Charlies Angels

 
 

TV remakes seem to be the thing to do right now, but they never seem to work. They tried a 'Night Rider' remake and 'Melrose Place' but they are no where to be found now. Maybe 'Charlies Angels' will have better luck, but I wouldn't be surprised if this is a one and done show.

The Breakfast Club

 
 

This is one of my favorite movies from the 80's and the John Hughes collection. Those characters to me, are timeless and no one should be playing them, but them. I keep hearing all kinds of rumors of someone trying to tackle a remake, but seriously the original is probably one that sums up 80's youth better than anything.
