There are certain films that are good and then there are some that make you feel disgusted. However, there are also certain movies that stay with you always. With the new era and the concept of making sequels to films and also re-making them, we often come across certain ones that we feel should never be made again. There is always something special about them; it may be the story, the performances, the direction, and many other features which make us feel that they cannot be and should not be replaced. Though over the years, many films have been remade either appropriately or not.
