List Rules Vote up the cinematic homages that nailed it, even if you didn't get the reference as a kid.

Since it began, The Simpsons has been skewering pop culture with references, parodies, and full-blown recreations of classic movie and TV scenes. Most fans know "The Shinning" Simpsons parody and the other "Treehouse of Horror" homages, but there are probably tons of nods to films that you missed as a kid.

Simpsons movie parodies run the gamut from E.T. to numerous Godfather spoofs, reworking fantastical, gory, and action-packed scenes into comedy gold. Take a look at some of the parodies you may have missed and decide how they stack up to the originals.
