It never struck me how much in common many of those movies have with respective books. I'm especially in awe about Paranoid Park (2007) - I've seen it and it never struck me that it is, indeed, similar to "Crime and Punishment" in many key aspects.

It is definitely cool, usually on the writers part its half tribute and half challenge to see if you equal the bar set by the original work. Romeo & Juliet is probably the best example with hundreds of updated adaptations. West Side Story, Gnomeo & Juliet, Romeo + Juliet  Warm Bodies are a couple of examples. Once you get past the change of setting and circumstances the parallels are pretty obvious.

I swear this has been done before. I can't think of what word to search on though. Maybe Dan knows.

Could be, I couldn't find it either. This is a poll suggestion of mine that bounced old message boards for two years, maybe you remember it from that. Also, this poll suggestion targets the teen movie genre, not all classic adaptations or updates.

The closest match I could find was a Shakespeare only authored poll that did not focus on teen movies only:William Shakespeare Inspired Movie Adaptations

Clueless

The "A" in the title should preferably be an "a".
