7 eighties classics being remade that should never be remade

Nobody puts Dirty Dancing, Flight of the Navigator or War Games in the corner.

“You’re going to remake me? But I’m so cute”

THE NEWS OF doom has come… there’s a possible remake of Gremlins on the way.

Why mess with a good thing? Why not leave it alone and let generations to come enjoy the original?

Next thing you’ll be pouring water on them and letting them eat past midnight.

Gremlins isn’t the only eighties classic being touted for a remake. Here are seven more that should just be left alone.

Flight of the Navigator

Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly, who were responsible for Safety Not Guaranteed have been hired to remake Flight of the Navigator (1986).

NO! NO! NO! Nothing can beat David bobbing around the ship to the Beach Boys. Nothing.

The Neverending Story

The Neverending Story has stood the test of time, and none of your fancy CGI or 3D is going to change that. Leave it alone. Yes, that means you Leonardo Di Caprio.

Overboard

Kurt and Goldie are perfect in this. Just perfect. It’s eighties cheese at its best.

Even though Goldie has wished it good luck, the remake is planned with Jennifer Lopez in the lead role. JENNIFER LOPEZ? Give me a break.

Three Men and a Baby

Adam Sandler is planning a remake of Three Men and a Baby apparently.

Oh really Sandler? And where exactly are you going to find a moustache as luscious as Tom Selleck’s?

NOWHERE! THAT’S WHERE!

War Games

Matthew Broderick starring as maybe the world’s first ever computer hacker? Yes please.

A remake? NO THANKS.

Annie

Will there ever be another child so perfect as Annie, the curly haired orphan getting the best of Miss Hannigan and melting the heart of Daddy Warbucks.

We don’t think so. Not even you Willow Smith.

Dirty Dancing

Nobody puts the original Dirty Dancing in the corner.

The man behind High School Musical is at the helm of this rumoured reboot, which doesn’t exactly fill us with confidence.
