10 Classic Movies That Should Never Have Received a Remake (But Still Got One)
Classic movies are called classics for one very important reason - they have no expiration date and can still be enjoyed a century after their premiere.
For Hollywood producers, however, classic means something else entirely - money.
Hollywood's obsession with remakes, reboots, and sequels has been a major problem for movie lovers for nearly three decades now, as fans have complained that instead of creating new stories and universes, directors and writers are wasting their time copying the work of their predecessors.
It's one thing to remake an old comedy, no one really cares, but when producers try to update a classic to modern standards, the fans really get angry.
The ten movies listed above are the most glaring proof that Hollywood's titans should really listen to what the fans are saying, because they are the ones who go to the movies and ultimately affect the box office results of the films.
However, movies like "The Wicker Man" and "Psycho" have managed to become cult favorites in the decades since their respective premieres, despite still being ridiculously bad.
Yes, it seems that remakes of classics have only two options - to be hated and forgotten, or to be laughed at. Not something a director would want for his creation, right?
