The Men Who Stare At Goats

Remember this book? About the military doing research on telepathy, extra-sensory perception, and killing farm animals by staring at them? Well, there seem to be plans to make it into a feature and George Clooney has signed on to star in it.

Diminishing Threat Syndrome

A common failing of comic books and action movies where the first time a creature is introduced, it is extremely difficult to defeat. It is often presented as undefeatable except by extraordinary effort and/or luck. However, as the story progresses, more and more creatures of that type are included in the plot, and the more there are, the easier they become to kill.
