Dear Hollyweird: Please Don’t Remake These Movies

boyznthehood don't remake

Hollyweird loves remaking movies whenever it runs out of good ideas. Most of the time, these remakes disappoint and only remind us how good the original version was while butchering the whole franchise. It’s sad to watch, actually.

With that said, here are 10 classic films that Hollyweird should keep its greasy palms off of.

    You can add ‘Juice’, ‘Menace to Society’, ‘Clockers’, ‘South Central’, ‘New Jersey Drive’, and the list goes on. You can’t recreate those movies because of the time period we were living in. Those movies provided a voice to the world about what was really going on in our culture. It wasn’t bad because we/some of us could relate to it at that time. None of these movies would fit this time period at all. This generation wouldn’t understand any of it. They already feel as though what was done then is old which it isn’t but that goes to show you the lack of knowledge some of them have.

    And this isn’t nothing major but an example would be looking at the style, clothes and the culture. I wouldn’t want someone to re-make ‘Juice’ and all them dudes have on fitted or smedium shirts with skinny jeans and there tennis shoes looking like boots. I tell you now I wouldn’t watch it. These movies would get watered down something serious just to make to the big screen. The closet thing to movies similar to what was going on in the 90’s was ATL. And personally not to knock it but you could’ve found that on the ‘ABC after school special program at 3-4pm when I was coming growing up in the 90’s because it was that clean’.

    I know I put fine instead of (find), so let me have it but a black film I would love to see remade is claude. The movkie shows that black people can still find love even if they think their situation is bad.

    Amen – according to T.Perry, all black men are evil, and all black women are professional victims.

    And oh, but today, the word the Akata is now also seen as a derogatory term…which it wasn’t back in the day. And all these immigrants living in the US are also called Akatas when they are back home.
    Any Black person living in the US is an Akata as far as Nigerians at home are concerned, because they have been Americanized.
