Here’s my first review for MovieRob’s June Genre Grandeur of Derivative movies based on some other source: Robinson Crusoe on Mars, a surprisingly good piece of classic science fiction.
For this month’s first review for Genre Grandeur – Derivative Work Films, here’s a review of Robinson Crusoe on Mars (1964) by SG of Rhyme and Reason.
Thanks again to Summer of Serendipitous Anachronisms for choosing this month’s very unique genre.
Here’s Summer to explain her choice:
Basically it is anything based or inspired by pre-existing source
Amelie takes its relationships from the Luncheon of the Boating Party
The Magnificent Seven is borrowed from the Seven Samurai
Sunday in the Park with George is based on painting by George Seurat
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead is loosely based on Hamlet
My Own Private Idaho borrows from Henry the IV
Cosi is about a director directing the musical Cosi Fan Tutti
Pride Prejudice and Zombies borrows from Pride and Prejudice
Clueless borrows from the novel Emma
Monty Python and the Holy Grail borrows from the Arthurian Legend
