Old May 28th, 2006, 08:34 AM        Movie comparisons that blow your mind
Movies that are similar to other movies (to the point that one is almost-definitely directly inspired from the other). You didn't even make the connection until someone pointed it out to you.

I just caught a dreadful abortion of an anime called Samurai 7. It's based on Sevent Samurai, except all the characters are different and there's a ton of robots. Yeah...

So I looked it up to see what the fuck, and in the discussions (where way too many people like this anime shit) a revelation brought on by a random post.


A Bug's Life = Seven Samurai.

Now post yours!

i saw Days Of Thunder on TV just now, and the plotline is used on so many other movies, but I can't remember a single one right now.

You mean the Lion King is based on Hamlet. As in the Uncle kills the King and the Son of the Dead king kills the Uncle.

And the dead father's spirit visits the son, yes.

Romeo and Juliet = West Side Story

But that one's a little more obvious.

Haha, the Bug's Life one is gold.

Only thing I can think of is Throne of Blood and Macbeth. But that dawned on me as I was watching it, so it wasn't one of those "oh shit" hindsight things. And it's pretty much a direct adaptation, so I don't know if it counts.

Road Trip = The Odyssey

This is not an endorsement of Road Trip.

The Lord of the Rings is Tolkien one-uping Macbeth (ie. the Witch King's death).

In another comparison of Shakespeare to Disney, Pocahontas is also strikingly similar to Romeo and Juliet.

That one is more of a remake though (I think a fairly blatant one, too), so it doesn't count.

Lion King wasn't touted as being a remake of Hamlet. Magnificent Seven was always made clear to a remake (or at least heavily inspired from) Seven Samurai.
