It seems the same is true of film. I am sick of 'remakes'. True, without remakes, we wouldn't have gotten Airplane! But I don't need to see Jackie Chan and Will Smith's son remaking 'Karate Kid'. I don't need to see Adam Sandler in 'The Longest Yard'. Nobody needs to see Marky Mark in 'Planet of the Apes'. And I love the Coen Brothers, but I'm so conflicted about their remake of 'True Grit'. However, a number of films pay tribute to those who came before without imitation.

Name two movies that feature video stores, though no actual film footage is ever seen.
Name two movies that feature fake films as part of the main film's plotline.
Name two movies that feature 'themselves' in the film.
And really, kids, I can't say it enough. If you don't recognize these, get out and watch some more movies.
