Top 5 Movies That SHOULD Be Remade

There are no more original ideas in Hollywood anymore. So the studios decide to dust off some older movies, and give them an updated version of the movie. And people like myself just get frustrated. However, sometimes there are movies in history that were good ideas and were good for the time, but are in desperate need of a remake. If some movies from the 80's got a 2012 update, I think they would be awesome!

So here are what I think are the Top 5 movies that SHOULD be remade.

1). Robocop - This is a cool idea for a movie. Regular cop gets beaten within a inch of his life and gets a robot makeover. Pretty cool if you ask me. I even had the action figure. But if you watch this movie today, you almost have to look away because of the graphics and poor acting by Peter Weller. If you put some high quality actors in the movie and give it some of today's technology in it, this movie would be bad ass!

2). Spies Like Us - This movie is hilarious! Dan Aykroyd and Chevy Chase are an awesome comedy duo. The only thing wrong with movie is that no one knows about this movie. It flies right under the radar with some people today. I say, "ya know whats a funny movie?......Spies Like Us". And people are like....."what movie?". Which is just sad because this movie is so freakin funny. So if you remake this movie and put a couple of current SNL guys in it. Guys like Andy Samberg and Bill Hader. Or maybe Seth Rogen and Jason Segal. If you give it an update.....oh man, that would be awesome.

3). Revenge of the Nerds - I love this movie. But watching it today, I just feel that it needs to be redone. But maybe not go all out Nerd. Get rid of the pocket protectors, and high pants, and the glasses and put in some wimpy kids who can't get girls and like comic books. Like put in the cast of The Big Bang Theory and the kid who played McLovin in Superbad (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), make it Rated R and you got one hilarious movie.

4). Running Man - The idea has been done. Several different ways. A guy on Death Row has to compete in some sort of game to the death, and if he wins.....he gets his freedom. So just redo the exact same movie but give it an update. Put some bad ass assassins in the movie instead of some lame old guys with neon lights and stupid outfits. Put a decent action star in the movie, and that would be a movie that I would watch.

5). The Neverending Story - I watched this movie a hundred times as a kid. And it's still fun to watch today. The main reason that this movie needs a remake is graphics. 80's graphics are hard to look at now-a-days. And this one has a lot of them. With some 3D graphics and some big name kid actors in the roles and you got yourself a fun movie!

Honorable Mentions - The Breakfast Club - Some Kind of Wonderful - Bloodsport

So there they are. The Top 5 movies that SHOULD be remade. I hope that some of these movies actually get remade. That would be awesome. Yes Indeed.
