    Total Recall and Unknown.

    Okay, so they weren't released at ALL within the same decade, but they're essentially the exact same. Except Total Recall is in my opinion much cooler because it's classic 80's cheese. And there's a three-boobed hooker.

    Unknown is essentially a somewhat modified version of Total Recall's plot but in a more realistic setting, and there actually isn't a whole lot of action even at the ending climax.

    I still remember when The Abyss, Leviathan, and Deepstar Six all came out the same year. The Abyss is by far the best of the three, but Leviathan remains my favorite.

    I agree with most of them , but no way are Saving Private Ryan and The Thin Red line twins. They maybe both about World War II but the are literally and physically half a world apart.

    Sequels don't count, although I've never seen either one of those two so I shouldn't say that anyway.

    There was also two James Bond movies that were pretty much the same.

    Never Say Never Again, and shit, for the life of me I can't recall the other movie. But they were pretty much identical with same plot, and same bad-guy.

    Only difference was, NSNA was not an official Bond movie.

    Never Say Never was pretty much a straight up remake of Thunderball. But I don't think that they count as they're separated by decades.

    And going by that, I'd say duplicate movies only really apply when they're made within the same year or a year apart. Ants and A Bug's Life had a three year span between them.

    Likewise the person who mentioned the Bourne Identity and Salt. They're spy movies within a genre. Might as well throw Spy Game into that list as it also uses the whole "is spy really an enemy" theme.

    Antz and A Bug's Life were released within a couple months of each other, not years.

    Thank you, I was thinking Thunderball, but didn't want to post it in case I was wrong. LOL! Yep, that was it alright. Largo was the bad-guy's name.

    Surprised no one said Transformers: Dark of the Moon and Battle L.A.

    Both movie came out this year and are mostly about the miltary fighting evil invading alien robots. The only difference is that Dark of the Moon has heroic robot aliens and DEEP WANG!

    No, Never Say Never Again was an unofficial Bond. I think it's because it was one that Ian Flemmings did not write.
