That's a pretty spot-on list actually, and all jokes aside, I really agree with the premise. Why DO we feel the need to take great movies and remake them? Do we think they'll be..."more great"? Take films that were "okay" but lacking something due to budget / casting / timing, and polish up their core premises to make something far better.
Well, C.H.U.D. is pretty much perfect as it is.
