9 Exceedingly Reboot Ready Franchises

As much as we might cry foul every time a beloved childhood franchise gets added to the long list of remakes and re-imaginings, some of them have been pretty cool. Take Mattel's Masters of the Universe Classics figures, which combine modern figure sculpting and articulation with the feel of the classic He-Man figures. Unfortunately, for every Masters Classics or Predators -- which looks amazing... so far -- there's a dozen G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobras which seems to completely miss the point of what made the property cool in the first place. Of course, those aren't going to stop companies from remaking the nerdy properties of our youth, and it's not going to stop us from wanting them (mostly). Here are nine cartoons, movies, toylines and games which seem especially ready for second shot at fame.

30 Greatest Living Geniuses in Business

The corporate world may be tricky – even overwhelming – but business degrees can help people to navigate this exciting environment. A number of high-flying entrepreneurs and CEOs have business degrees to their name, and their studies may well have given them the leg up to making that first million or even billion. Still, while knowledge can get some individuals far, a touch of brilliance also pays dividends, as many of today’s shining executive stars prove. Some have Mensa-level intelligence, others a winning management style, sharp business sense or just a good idea and the wherewithal to succeed – yet all are super smart in their own way.

10 Fascinating Facts About The Samurai

Samurai are legendary warriors and perhaps the most well-known class of people in ancient Japan. They were noble fighters that fought evil (and each other) with their swords and frightening armor, following a strict moral code that governed their entire life. That’s the popular idea, anyway. In reality, there’s much more to the samurai.

Top 10 Worst Video Game Movies

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game is the game (oh, really?), of the sleeper hit movie, of the comic book of the same name. It’s also a colourful homage to the late, great side-scrolling 2-D beat-'em-ups of the 16-bit '90s, where your pugilistic momentum hinged entirely on the glorious thrashing of buttons; a rare offering of simple, half-decent thrills from the regularly half-bottomed mill of movie-to-game conversions. Avatar: The Game, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (the game), Terminator Salvation (the game, yes): All awful, terrible things, but rotund men in suits know lots of you will buy these video games on account of having enjoyed the films, so you know, effort? Whatever. The reality of the reverse, however (that being when a game becomes a movie), is a much, much uglier place. While there have been some unexpected (yet still debatable) gems in the form of Resident Evil, Silent Hill and even glaringly inaccurate 1993 genre-first Super Mario Bros., more often than not, the end result is tragically funny, for all the so-wrong-they’re-still-quite-wrong reasons.

10 Early Versions Of Famous Works Of Film

One of the most common complaints about Hollywood today is that there are too many unnecessary remakes, many of them based on movies which were perfectly fine to begin with. However, taking a good idea and finding a way to improve upon it is another matter. Sometimes, artists just do not have the budget and resources to do everything they want with their ideas the first time around. But when given another opportunity, these artists have taken early, smaller-scale versions of their ideas, and turned them into legendary works of pop culture.

Top 10 People Who Vanished in Airplanes

On September 29, 2008, a hiker found Steve Fossett’s identification cards in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, in California, and the crash site was discovered a few days later, 65 miles due south from Flying M Ranch, where he took off. On November 3, 2008, tests conducted on two bones recovered from the site of the crash produced a match to Fossett’s DNA. He had been found. Had Fossett not been found he would certainly have made this list. It is hard to believe that something as big as an airplane can simply vanish, leaving behind no traces of where it went down. Yet, even over land, airplanes go missing and are never discovered. Or only discovered decades later. Here are ten tales of people who took off in airplanes and vanished, never to be seen again.

5 Tips For Precision Rifle Shooting On A Budget

As firearm and ammunition costs have skyrocketed recently and once-common items have become... uncommon, accomplishing anything related to shooting is now extremely difficult. This is especially true for something that was already not particularly cheap. Case in point: precision rifle shooting, or long-range rifle shooting. Of course, "long range" is a relative term. If you rarely shoot your AR-15 past 25 yards, then hitting something at 300 might seem like a daunting obstacle. At the other end of the spectrum, guys shooting .375 CheyTac practically need satellite imagery to hit targets at the extreme end of their maximum effective range.
