Greetings, Programs!

Hello my American friends, as you stuff your face and watch football over the next 24 hours. Consider watching some of these five turkeys that were really not that bad:

Robot Jox (1989)

Starring Gary Graham, Anne-Marie Johnson, and Paul Koslo

It is post-World War III. War is outlawed. In its place, are matches between large Robots called Robot Jox. These matches take place between two large superpowers over disputed territories. The main character Achilles is a pilot in one of the large Robots. The plot revolves around him and a match for the state of Alaska.

Before Pacific Rim, if you wanted a Mechwarrior action on the big screen, this was it.

Virtuosity (1995)

Starring Denzel Washington and Russell Crow

When a virtual reality simulation created using the personalities of multiple serial killers manages to escape into the real world, an ex-cop is tasked with stopping its reign of terror.

I remember watching this film thinking that this Russell fella could have a big career in the right role.


The One (2001)

Starring Jet Li, Carla Gugino, and Jason Statham

A rogue Multiverse agent goes on a manhunt for versions of himself, getting stronger with each kill. With only one version remaining, he races against the clock to finish him and become “The One.”


Highwaymen (2004)

Starring Jim Caviezel and Rhona Mitra

Rennie Cray embarks on a bloodthirsty rampage to avenge the death of his wife who was struck down by a serial killer – a man who hunts and kills women using his ’72 El Dorado.

Limitless (2011)

Starring Bradly Cooper, Robert DeNiro, and Abbie Cornish

With the help of a mysterious pill that enables the user to access one hundred percent of his brain abilities, a struggling writer becomes a financial wizard, but it also puts him in a new world with lots of dangers.


Happy Thanksgiving Goblins!
