    Ok, obvious ones:

    "The Magnificent Seven" (and "Battle Beyond the Stars") is a remake of "Seven Samurai"

    "A Fistful of Dollars" is a remake of "Yojimbo"

    Disney's "A Bug's life" is also the "Seven Samurai"

    "Lion King" is "Hamlet"

    Pocahontas/A Man Called Horse/Dances with Wolves/Avitar are all the same movie.

    "Star Wars episode 4: a new hope" is "The Hidden Fortress"

    Apparently, Raiders if the Lost Ark stole quite a bit of it’s look from Secret of the Incas with Charleston Heston. The whole opening sequence from Raiders is an homage to that movie.

    There’s also Ferngully and The Last Samurai. I think I’m forgetting at least one.

    It seems like 50% of movies coming out are remakes. They're even re-making 'Home Alone'. I think in another 30 years that Hollywood is going to be remaking their remakes.

    Probably a lot more than one...


    "Ten Things i hate About You" with Heath Ledger was "Taming of the shrew"
    "She's All That" with Rachel Lee Cook is Pygmalion
    "Easy A" with Emma Stone is "the Scarlet letter"
    "She's the Man" was Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night"
    'Clueless" was Jane Austen's "Emma"
    "Cruel Intentions" was "Dangerous Liaisons"

    Lots of teen movies translated from the classics the kids refused to read.
    (I had a teen daughter in the 90's and had to sit through a lot of these.)
