As The Onion has pointed out, full-episode parodies of movies can be a sure sign that a TV show is running out of steam and ideas. And, historically, they're right. (See: Almost any '90s comedy series that ever did a Halloween episode homage to cheesy horror movies.)
But there are a select few shows that have consistently brought the goods when it comes to film satire, using movie plots as a springboard to create something special with their own characters instead of just covering for a lack of originality with 23 minutes of "Hey, look at us making references to this thing you loved!"

This week: A party at James Franco's house rages on as the Apocalypse gets it on outside in the outrageous horror comedy "This Is the End," starring Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride and Craig Robertson and featuring cameos from numerous celebrities.
The high school burnout classic "Dazed and Confused" is one of the most fondly remembered movies of the early '90s. But did you know that when the movie was first released, it was like, a total flop, man? Bummer.
But here we are today celebrating the 20-year anniversary, giving it the love it so deserves. It turns out that "Dazed and Confused" is in pretty good company when it comes to now-classics that didn't get showered with box office love upon their initial release. Check it out, man. Get More »
Okay, okay, so we weren't exactly throwing a ticker tape parade around here for Warner Bros.' 3D IMAX
[insert random acronym here] re-release of "The Wizard of Oz," but even so. When they told us things like it'd reawaken what "people felt when they first saw it" because the sound and sharpness was so darn "exceptional" and that the people tinkering with our technicolor gem did something "truly amazing" with it, we were listening.
Buuuut if this first trailer for the thing is any indication, consider us a little underwhelmed for now. Get More »
With "Man of Steel" hitting theaters this weekend, you might find yourself remembering the slew superheroes that have flown in and out of the box office in recent years — Superman, Iron Man, and the Green Lantern, to name a few. Get More »
Reboots and sequels and 3D conversions, oh my!
Click your ruby slippers three times fast and say that familiar phrase, wouldya? Okay, now do you still live in a world where nothing is sacred in Hollywood and everything gets tinkered with? Sadly, you totally do. Sigh.
Vine is to YouTube what flash fiction is to the short story, and the increasingly popular little video app is gaining a lotta traction in the movie biz right about now because, well, there's a ton of hilarity potential.
Sure, one could make a series of hoity-toity Tribeca Film Festival-worthy six-second shorts with the program, too (yawn), but who wouldn't rather see things like rap song/ Disney movie mashups and random celebrity impersonation samples and brief homemade movie reboots? Get More »
Everybody has at least one friend who is obsessed with Batman. They collect the comics, put the pointy ears and cape on for Halloween, or watch "The Dark Knight" like it's their job.
There's probably a part of these incurable obsessives that wishes either A) they could live in Wayne Manor with Alfred or B) that Batman was in every movie, and luckily that second fantasy has been fulfilled with the YouTube vid "Batman in Classic Movie Scenes." Get More »
Even before the opening weekend loot totals for "Oz the Great and Powerful" came along, Disney had been readying a follow-up, with "Oz" co-writer Mitchell Kapner rapidly scrawling the next step for the Good Witch Glinda and Co.
Nope, producer Joe Roth has assured that the "Oz" sequel "would absolutely not" involve Dorothy and her little Yellow Brick Road-wandering ventures, but instead it'll take place before those events. Get More »
The tagline for "Oz the Great and Powerful" may be "The land you know, the story you don't," but that doesn't mean everything about the prequel is unfamiliar from the 1939 "The Wizard of Oz." Though Disney was unable to use many of the specific references from the classic flick due to copyright laws — sorry, no ruby slippers here — "Oz" enthusiasts need not fear. The new movie has Easter eggs galore for fans of the original Dorothy Garland film, if only you know where to look.
Ahead, seven "The Wizard of Oz" Easter eggs buried in "Oz the Great and Powerful."
