* The original ''Film/TheEvilDead1981'' showed a torn poster of ''Film/TheHillsHaveEyes'' in the background of one scene. Creator/BruceCampbell reveals in the DVD commentary that Creator/SamRaimi intended it as a sly dig at Creator/WesCraven's film, as if to say: "If you thought ''that'' was scary..." Craven responded [[ShoutOut goodnaturedly]], by having ''Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet1984'''s protagonists seen watching the trailer for ''Film/TheEvilDead1981''. Raimi then answered back by showing Freddy Krueger's infamous glove hanging above a door in ''Film/EvilDead2''. The whole thing was actually started by a scene in ''Film/TheHillsHaveEyes'' with a torn poster for ''Film/{{Jaws}}'' in the background, which Raimi took as a similar "If you thought that was scary" swipe.

It's complete with a ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' ShoutOut: "Oh my god, you killed Lenny. You bastard!"

* A take-that to Brooklyn from the film ''Film/TheMadMissManton'': --->'''Lt. Mike Brent''': Look, lady, it's been ten minutes since you called us. The murderer, that is if there is a murderer, could be in Brooklyn by now - that is, if anybody wants to be in in Brooklyn.

** The title itself is considered a Take That to executives in charge of the American release of ''Shaolin Soccer'' [[ViewersAreMorons who didn't believe American audiences would know what "Shaolin" meant]], and wanted to re-name the film "Kung-Fu Soccer".

* In ''Film/JurassicParkIII'', when asked about character Ian Malcolm's book, a young boy comments that he didn't like it, saying it spent way too much on Chaos Theory and used big words. This is probably a dig at the original book's author, Creator/MichaelCrichton, who likes to AuthorFilibuster on his theories, and used Malcolm for this purpose - the novel was one long discussion on Chaos Theory.

** ''Film/TheLostWorldJurassicPark'' features a notable diss against paleontologist Robert T. Bakker. Quick history lesson: Dr. Bakker has been a longtime rival of Dr. Jack Horner, the ''Jurassic Park'' series' official paleontological consultant. Horner is well known for having a massive ego (he proudly states that he was the inspiration for Dr. Grant's character), and always seemed to be in a perpetual state of bickering with Dr. Bakker, even on the most petty of speculative topics (such as the T-Rex's eyesight, which there is no way of actually studying). And thus in ''The Lost World'', Dr. Bakker is given his very own CaptainErsatz, a bumbling poser who gets scared out of hiding by a snake, and [[DroppedABridgeOnHim into the jaws of a T-Rex]].
*** It is well known among fans, however, that Dr. Bakker actually loved the scene, and even called Horner after watching the movie and told him "See? I told you it was a predator!" (Horner is the oldest- and practically, the only- defender of the theory of T-Rex as a giant, slow-moving full-time scavenger, whereas Bakker always defended the idea of T-Rex as a fast, ferocious killer).
** ''Film/JurassicWorld'' issues its own take that to ''JPIII'' after the above spinosaurus battle went over poorly with fans; who took to the dinosaur as TheScrappy because of that. Not only is the dinosaur left off the list of attractions, [[spoiler: its only appearance in the film is a skeleton that ends up getting destroyed by the Tyrannosaurus Rex, satisfying a large number of fans dissatisfied with the above-mentioned CurbStompBattle in that film]].
** Also in ''Jurassic World'', Owen and Claire find that Gray and Zach have escaped the I-Rex by jumping over the waterfall. Claire begins to frantically call their names, and Owen immediately shuts her up and reminds her that if she keeps doing that, they're going to wind up dead. The whole situation is a nod to the other [[TheScrappy Scrappy]] of ''JPIII'', Amanda Kirby, a DumbBlonde [[TooDumbToLive who lacked the sense to realise that shouting her son's name at the top of her lungs in a jungle infested with vicious predators is a stupid idea]].
