I like to list few movies here that I think there should be no remakes at all.

1-Signs.
2-The Village
3-The Sixth Sense
4-Unbreakable
5-Lady In The Water
6-The Happening
7-LOTR Trilogy
8-Godfather 1.2.3
9-Scarface
10-No Country for old men
11-There will be blood
12-Titanic
13-The Dark Knight
14-Passion Of The Christ
15-BOURNE movies...

Please list yours as well.

Titanic ans Scarface are remakes...As popular and influential as The Sixth Sense was, it's bound to be remade with in the next 25 to 30 years.

I made this same argument at the Steven Spielberg forum and they convinced me that great stories deserved to be told to new generations with new insight into the stories, and I agree with them.  Now some of these movies you listed will be remade eventually. 

Some movies seem to perfect to be remade, Holloween and Psycho are just two of them, but they were remade.  I still agree that certain movies should never be remade, but on the same hand, like I said before, great stories need new and different ways of telling them.  The question is, if the demand is there or not and if the studio's can make money off of the retelling of them or not.  It's cheaper to re-release a movie than to remake it, so one would think that they would just do that instead.  So, with that being said, we have to take inconsideration that it's not just financial reasons that movies are being made, I think it's also the sensibilities of the director to the material that also determines when and if a movie is remade.  When I'm in my 60's or 70's and The Sixth Sense is remade, I'm the first person in line, cause I can almost tell you that it will someday be remade.   

Well okay, the whole point of this thread is that there should be no more remakes of those specific movies that I listed. I don't care if they are remakes now, I just don't want any more remakes.

I know Titanic is a remake, but seriously don't want to see anyone else play Jack Dawson and Rose in the next 20 years.

Thanks

ok, then My number one pick is Citizen Kane, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, then Jaws

then:

JFK
Pulp Fiction
Gladiator
Glory
Forrest Gump
Chinatown
On The Water Front
Malcome X
Do The Right Thing
Bladerunner
Casino
E.T
Saving Private Ryan
Esay Rider
Hambuger Hill

just to name a few

See the villain's larger eyes insinuating a just-off-normal perspective on how they see the world? I see signs Lucius Hunt; just not as you see dead people. I am so very happy we saw..each other, and no I will not tell you what color love is. Stop asking.
