      That was a fun list. Never knew about "Mr. Fusion". One I would add: There's an X-Wing as part of the spaceship in "Event Horizon". Wouldn't mind to see more entries....

      I suppose you could include the Wilhelm scream as most recycled cinematic device.

      Aren't those dental tools used in David Cronenberg's Dead Ringers, too?

      Straight away you can tell that the minigun from Predator is different from Terminator 2. Handle on top is at a different 90 degree angle and there is either an underslung or extra grip on the Predator minigun. If its been modified it isnt the same prop.

      Some of these I knew, some I did not. Very enjoyable list!

      "A flying car"? That'll be a Spinner, then. And the one in BTTF2 looks nothing like the one in Blade Runner!

      The Blade Runner 'Spinner' can be seen in 'Solider' with Kurt Russel, a scrapped one. Also used in Trancers, Solar Crisis and see link for better picture of Spinner in BTTF2 media.bladezone com/contents/film/production/props/spinner/index2.html

      Wasn't the Millenium Falcon used in Blade Runner, stood upright as a building?

      Arnie's gun is clearly a different one - the handles at a different angle by 90degrees for a start.

      minorityreport is correct..., the dental tools are from DEAD RINGERS' "background" surgeon's tools. The Cronenberg-esque anthropomorphic surgeon's tools were front and center in his film, naturally, but the saw-like tool was an instrument tray "filler."

      Nice list! A bit shaky around the middle with the pictures but good work. I'll also add Robby the Robot was used in an episode of Columbo... and a smattering of other cool shows going by the wikipedia page.
