SPOILERS for THE GREEN MILE...


 INVISO TEXT (Click or highlight to reveal):
Robbie, you can if you focus on the resurrection of the drowned (or squished) mouse by the story's resident sorcerer. A mouse that now can never die, and in fact, may be growing ever more powerful...

The Lion King echoes some elements of Hamlet in a broad sense, but it really is not the same as Hamlet in many fundamental ways, not least of which being that pretty much everyone dies in Hamlet.

That would be too much killing, even by Disney standards ;)

And then there's  The Asylum, who famously copies movies set to premiere on the big screen with quick knock offs (e.g. War of the Worlds, Transformers) that head straight to DVD/Blu-ray.

They even did their own knock off of "The Walking Dead" (Z-Nation), which actually has evolved into a pretty amusing show in its own right.

Of course, they also lucked out with the Sharknado series (which I haven't watched), but is perhaps one of the most original things they've done.

I've heard it said that imitation is the sincerest form of filmmaking.
