"20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" (1954)
What It Is: Based on the 19th century Jules Verne novel, this is submarines and madmen and sea monsters (well, a giant squid), oh my. A master harpooner, Ned Land (Kirk Douglas), finds himself held hostage by a troubled, vengeful submarine captain, Captain Nemo (James Mason). And now "Finding Nemo" is ruined for you, isn't it?
Why It Needs A Reboot: This was early steampunk, people! Rally your hipsters! It's also a classic, and the characterizations are more complex and interesting than you might associate with Disney movies of the era.
Why Disney Should Leave It Alone: The property has already been passed around like a tray of Botox shots at a "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" party. McG was going to do it with Will Smith starring as Nemo (he passed), then David Fincher was attached and wanted Brad Pitt as Ned Land (he passed, too).
Verdict: It looks like someone is going to dredge this one up eventually, so who are we to judge?
