It’s not exactly a shiny new concept that stories get recycled and retold, or that movies borrow liberally and sometimes steal from other movies, or that people like watching and hearing the same thing over and over again.

We've all seen movies bomb, but what makes them a flop? Do we just know one when we see it, or is there a way to codify what makes a movie bomb, and by how much.
Oh, sequels. Sometimes they're as good, or even better, than the originals (see: Toy Story 2 and Terminator 2), and sometimes they mean that you have to watch another 90 minutes of Transformers. But what about the movies that, while not really sequels, just kind of belong together anyway?

American Toy and Invention Co. is selling a kit that'll let you build, implode, and rebuild a multi-story structure that looks strangely enough like the 5th Avenue Apple flagship retail space. I'm sure it teaches about the physics of demolition, but hey! Stuff's blowing up! Stuff with iPods inside!
This looks like the poster for an awesome science fiction film that we'd like to see: a girl in a giant hulking exoskeletal suit of armor with her comic-effect tiny little robotic pal perched on her shoulder. You've got evil signified by the pouring lava on the left hand side of the background, while fighters…
In a war-ravaged future where most urban areas are riddled with mines, a de-miner's only friends are New York street kids and his bomb dog Uxo (short for unexploded ordnance). In the short story "Uxo, Bomb Dog," available from excellent scifi blog Futurismic, author Eliot Fintushel creates a wry, sad portrait of a man…
