On the basis of "It's not enough that an idea seems to be ripping off another idea. It needs to be blatant in its advertising that it is a copy for it to count", I've pulled everything that says "is basically", "can be described as" or similar.

There are still a lot of examples with the same problem, e.g. "Avatar is Pocahontas in space". Many of them I suspect don't qualify, but not being familiar enough with a lot of the examples (or how they were advertised) I can't say for sure what should go.

Avatar is Dances with Wolves in Space. Clearly.

The One and Highlander is absolutely accurate.

Evolution being "Ghostbusters with Aliens" is a brilliant-ass description for a laconic, but not actually fitting for this trope, admittedly.

They were advertised as this?

Examples Are Not Arguable, needs be advertised as to qualify. Beyond this, be a remake not says nothing about the setting.

"Avatar" is "Dances with Wolves... IN SPACE!" "Jason X" is "Friday the 13th... IN SPACE!"

You know, I think the current description is a bit vague. I'll have to bring it up in the forums.
