20. Billy Jack - (1971) - 47 points

Last year's #20: Billy Jack - (1971)

Synopsis:
"Billy Jack is a half-Indian/half-white ex-Green Beret who is being drawn more and more toward his Indian side. He hates violence, but can't get away from it in the white man's world. Pitting the good guys, the students of the peace-loving free-arts school in the desert vs. the conservative bad guys in the near-by town, the movie plays definitive late-60s themes/messages: anti-establishment, make love not war, the senseless slaughter of God's creatures, the rape of society (figuratively and literally), two-sided justice, racial segregation and prejudices, and basic socialist ideals."

This is a bit late, but I should note that I while I would love the guys to go after it, this MST3K homage did one hell of a job on The Giant Claw:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/-LjjPO0OYCo" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/-LjjPO0OYCo</a>

The intro to part 1's a bit flat, but once they get to the main characters and the movie, it's pretty freakin' solid.

They also did an earlier homage with Starcrash as well.

Last year's #18: Black Swan - (2010)

Synopsis:
"Year 1873. In Silver City, Arizona Territory, Apache Indians and Western settlers must lay their differences aside when an alien spaceship crash lands in their city. It all begins when a stranger (Daniel Craig) with no memory of his past stumbles into the hard desert town of Absolution. The only hint to his history is a mysterious shackle that encircles one wrist. What he discovers is that the people of Absolution don't welcome strangers, and nobody makes a move on its streets unless ordered to do so by the iron—fisted Colonel Dolarhyde (Harrison Ford). It's a town that lives in fear. But Absolution is about to experience fear it can scarcely comprehend as the desolate city is attacked by marauders from the sky. Screaming down with breathtaking velocity and blinding lights to abduct the helpless one by one, these monsters challenge everything the residents have ever known. Now, the stranger they rejected is their only hope for salvation. As this gunslinger slowly starts to remember who he is and where he's been, he realizes he holds a secret that could give the town a fighting chance against the alien force. With the help of the elusive traveler Ella (Olivia Wilde), he pulls together a posse comprised of former opponents—townsfolk, Dolarhyde and his boys, outlaws and Apache warriors—all in danger of annihilation. United against a common enemy, they will prepare for an epic showdown for survival."
