Yojimbo to Fistful of Dollars to Warrior and the Sorceress to Last Man Standing to Rogue Assassin aka War.



And you can add the Dashiell Hammett novel Red Harvest to the front of the list, too.

And Jaws 3-D could be considered a remake of Gorgo.

But only in the sense that Piranha is a remake of Jaws...

We're getting a Ben-Hur this year, aren't we? That's the remake of the Fifties version that I believe was a remake of a silent take on the same material.

And there were two silent versions, one from the 19-teens, & one from the 1920's.

That's a bit tricky. When does it stop being "Remake of X" and become "Same general premise but not much else from X"?

It's much more fun to call a movie a Jaws rip-off than a movie that shares the same general premise as Jaws. Because who knows, with newer generations not being nearly as pop culture savvy when they are younger as us old fogeys, they may have been inspired to make a rip-off of, say, Megalodon VS Octoshark then be surprised when informed that the movie they ripped off was, itself, a rip-off. But what does that make that rip-off - besides a huge steaming pile of really fun to make fun of dog doody.

Can you imagine a shoddy director proclaiming that they were inspired by Tentacles and then see the incredulity on their face when they are told that movie was a rip-off of this movie called Jaws.

Allegedly, Message from Space was loosely based on a 19th century novel, not The Seven Samurai. The director later made a period adaption, Legend of the Eight Samurai, which also took liberties with the source.

Info on Message from Space:

Legend of the Eight Samurai:

And here's info on the novels both these films are supposed to be based on:

Wow, I never noticed that before.

So, is this thread about remakes or about archetypes?
