Johnny, nice one with drawing the link to Judge Dredd, I didn't think about that and I used to read 2000AD a lot.  Even the imagery can be compared (Dredd's helmet / RoboCop's helmet).

Johnny, you also mentioned a glaringly obvious rip-off on another thread (I think it was you), that in retrospect I'm shocked wasn't mentioned in this article and that's the incredibles ripping off the FF.  It wasn't an homage, it was a blatant theft in every sense.  Yeah, turd, I mean bird, changed the powers around a bit, but it was the FF.

It's funny how a number of reputable sources claim that the first movie to use bullet time was Blade in 1998. But bullet time actually refers to the bullets bending space and the movement of the camera. When Blade fires on Deacon in the park, it's just a group of CG bullets. Something I know how to create on my computer. It doesn't mean I'm using bullet time. The Matrix is given credit because everyone thinks it was the first movie to show the bullets bending space along with the camera angles. But in 1996, the Wachowskis directed Bound with Gina Gershon and Jennifer Tilly which did feature a bullet time sequence that people seem to have forgotten about.

The Wachowskis have been cited several times as saying that they had numerous anime inspirations for The Matrix. They said the biggest influence was the original 'Ghost In The Shell."

And I hate to say it, because it was a GREAT movie, but The Incredibles is an obvious ripoff of Fantastic Four.  But since there hasn't been a GOOD FF movie. I'll forgive them.

RobboCop and The Matrix - I Just want to be on record saying I love both these movies.

I think we could do a whole article about 10 things The Matrix Rips Off - Dark City, Ghost in the Shell, X-Men, etc.

Wow, I forgot all about THE INCREDIBLES. Good call, kikstad

Somebody gave me this link today with another (apparent) case of borrowing from comics: DRAG ME TO HELL
