Most Ripped-Off Sci-Fi Movie(s) ...

I vote for the 1950's classic, Forbidden Planet.

Multiple Star Trek original series are based on its themes, and the Star Wars movie co-opted the towering, precarious power generation system.

Yeah, but Forbidden Planet ripped off Shakespeare's The Tempest

It's one of my favorite movies, I have the original DVD and the restored boxed version. My friends are amazed at how watchable it is today - most of the 50's SciFi was, of course, terrible.

I will never get tired of it and if a remake is done, I hope it is the folks who redid Star Trek.
