A team

Growing up everyone loved the A-Team. It is so iconic - the song(I know your probably humming it now), the van and Mr. T's mohawk.

If you are in the minority and didn't like the A-team then you probably didn't enjoy The Dukes of Hazard, Magnum P.I., Knight Rider, Air Wolfe, or the Fall Guy either. You probably watched the Greatest American Hero and Alf(which I also enjoyed).

Like everything else they are doing a re-make with:
Liam Neeson as Colonel Hannibal Smith
Bradley Cooper as Lt. Templeton "Face" Peck
Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson as B.A. Baracus
Sharlto Copley as "Howling Mad" Murdoch

This brings me to the real topic, and something that I have meant to blog about for some time, Re-makes. Is Hollywood really that hard up that they have to keep remaking classics or even movies that were never that great? Don't give me that bullshit term "REBOOT" either. They are either lacking originality and new ideas or they are just lazy and don't want to push through anything new.

Here is a list of movies that I don't think should ever be touched(in no particular order):
1. Jaws - what actor today could play Quint? Maybe Sam Elliot.
2. Scarface
3. Godfather
3. The Breakfast Club
4. Road House
5. Star Wars - just the original 3
6. Total Recall
7. The Color of Money
8. The Sting
9. Airplane
10. Beverly Hills Cop
11. Godfather 2
12. Rambo
13. Caddy Shack
14. Foot Loose
15. Full Metal Jacket
16. Goonies
17. YoungBlood
18. The Never Ending Story
19. Poltergeist
20. Taxi Driver
21. Heat
22. Rocky
23. Bull Durham
24. Stripes
25. Krush Groove

In the comments section leave what movies you would never want to see remade or rebooted.
