There was a ghost busters cartoon? I thought the movies from the 80's were classics and great. I Dreamed of Genie is going to be redone with Will Ferrel and Nicole Kidman coming up. Super Mario Brothers definitely needs a remake. And I'd LOVE to see a Munsters movie! I don't know the others so I can't really comment...

i'm going to agree with this. unless a really good director is involved, remakes suck. they ruin and shame the original.

I feel the same way... it's unoriginal to the max >_>. It can ruin great memories of the originial movies for me. I'm at least hoping Willy Wonka with Johnny Depp will be semi-good..

This is a remake that I think shouldn't have happened... but at least it's based on the book more then Gene Wilder's movie.

Earth, Wind, Fire, Water?

How about a movie about Captain Planet?

Maybe it can affect kids these days and have them treasure our planet a lot more... I dunno... I'm a bit dry on ideas right now... *shrugs*

I really hate that idea. I cite as examples.
Bewitched. (gonna suck.)
Fat Albert. (sucked.)
well, ok, that's really all I got. But there's more. I just can't think of 'em.

HOWEVER.

Lupin III, I suppose, would count. now, I tell you what I'd REALLY like to see.

LUPIN III
STARRING
JOHNNY DEPP ---- LUPIN III
JUDE LAW ------- JIGEN
BYRON(me)------- GOEMON ISHIKAWA (as long as I'm dreamin' darnit)
GEORGE CLOONEY - ZENIGATA
LOTR's AOWYN --- FUJIKO MINE

I've posted on this to some extent in my own journal but I think that the whole concept of re-makes is totally backwards. Instead of remaking beloved classics, hollywood needs to start remaking movies that weren't that good the first time. There are a lot of movies that would've been good with a better director or script or actors or even editor. Why not remake those? You compare a remake to a classic and the remake almost always pales in comparison, but if you remake a failure, you're golden. For example:

Ishtar. Remake it with Luke and Owen Wilson. It would be perfect for today's considerably more middle-east savy audience.

Night of the Lepus. Could any remake of this movie be worse than the original? I don't think so. I'd say cast Dennis Hopper in the DeForest Kelly role.

Actually, I'd like to see all of the b-movie atomic test giant animal movies remade with modern special effects.

Guys And Dolls. Face it, this could've been a great movie if they'd gone ahead and made it as a Rat Pack flick but Brando ruins the whole thing. You could have Kevin Spacey and Harry Connick Jr. as Sky Masterson and Nathan Detroit.

X the man with the X-Ray Eyes, I'd like to see Steve Buscemi in an NC-17 version of this classic. It'd just be chock full of gratuitous nudity and skeletons. With Christopher Walken in the Don Rickles role.

I am ESPECALLY fond of your idea of Guys and Dolls being remade. That would be FANTASTIC. With someone cute like Kristen Chenowith in it.. it'd be greaet. You should pitch that. I bet they'd go for it.
