Last year's #7: Super Mario Bros -(1995)

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."

Up Next:
I always regret that Billy Jack wasn't in the next film too.

Last year's #6: National Treasure -(2004)

Synopsis:
"It's the 1980's and it's a different world. Superheroes have been outlawed, the only ones still in operation under direct control of the United States government. Suddenly, those heroes both still in action and retired find themselves targets by an unseen enemy, who wants to kill them one by one. A complex, multi-layered mystery adventure, the film is set in an alternate 1985 America in which costumed superheroes are part of the fabric of everyday society, and the “Doomsday Clock” – which charts the USA’s tension with the Soviet Union – is permanently set at five minutes to midnight. When one of his former colleagues is murdered, the washed-up but no less determined masked vigilante Rorschach sets out to uncover a plot to kill and discredit all past and present superheroes. As he reconnects with his former crime-fighting legion – a ragtag group of retired superheroes, only one of whom has true powers – Rorschach glimpses a wide-ranging and disturbing conspiracy with links to their shared past and catastrophic consequences for the future. Their mission is to watch over humanity…but who is watching the Watchmen?"

Last year's #4: Demolition Man -(1993)

Synopsis:
“Hank's a knob. He doesn't have any hobbies or interests. All he does is play that – what do you call that crap with the dungeons and the dragons...?”

“Dungeons & Dragons?”

“That's the crap.”

“Oooh.”

“Guys, let's play D&D to help Hickey reconnect with his son!”

“Was everyone's takeaway from last time that we can use D&D to reprogram brains? Nobody feels that we almost caused a suicide?”

“We prevented one. Fa...bulous Neil felt like a nobody, and thanks to us he's still out there,  doing this and that in the background.”

“A satisfying sequel is difficult to pull off. Many geniuses have defeated themselves through hubris, making this the chance to prove that I'm better than all of them – I'm in.”

“All in favor of a game of Dungeons & Dragons to reunite Hickey and his son tomorrow night?”

“Aye!”

This one's entirely my fault.

Last year's #2: G.I. Joe The Rise of Cobra -(2009)

Synopsis:
“When monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity's resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes - a washed up former pilot and an untested trainee - who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind's last hope against the mounting apocalypse.”
