Unfortunately for 99% of the leaders, they don't have Mike Banning on their side, so they're mercilessly killed. President Asher barely escapes with his life, but he's not out of the woods yet.

Milla Jovovich makes her Stop The Movie debut in 2006's Ultraviolet. Jovovich plays Violet, a vampire in a futuristic dystopian society in which her kind are in a state of war with the uninfected. Her people are almost on the brink of extinction when she is tasked with stealing a weapon from the government, one that she is told will be used against the vampires in order to finally wipe them out. She soon discovers that she was lied to, and the object she steals is actually a human child... one which she must now protect with all of her lives, no matter how many terrible CGI battles she has to get into. We're told that there is a much longer "Director's Cut" of this film that explains everything much more clearly, but we'll be damned if we'll ever watch it. Grab your nose plugs, brush your fangs, and join us as we infect Ultraviolet!

Jennifer Lopez returns with a vengeance in this week's episode review of Enough! Lopez plays "Slim", a woman who meets a guy in the diner she's working in, falls in love, gets married, has a kid, and embarks on what seems to be the perfect life. After years of wedded bliss, she discovers that everything she knew about her relationship is a lie. She soon becomes the victim of domestic abuse, a concept that is much too heavy and real for what this movie does with it. After being chased around the country by her obsessive and abusive husband, she decides to take things into her own hands, turning to the one thing that all abused women eventually turn to when they've finally had enough... UFC fighting. That's right, UFC fighting. No, really... UFC... fighting... Slim goes from a semi-realistic portrayal of a battered woman to Matthew Fox in Alex Cross in no time at all. Grab your wigs, don't call the cops no matter what, and join us as we change our identities and run as far as we can from Enough!

Gods of Egypt is a 2016 video game cut scene that tells the story of an "alternative Egypt", where the skin is white and the accents are varied. The lands is ruled by gods, who are giants with gold for blood. Current king Osiris is passing down the throne to his son Horus, when his brother Set decides to crash the party. After killing his brother and tearing out his nephew's eyes, he takes over the kingdom, enslaving the population and making life miserable for everyone. When a young man named Bek and his girlfriend Zaya plot to steal Horus' powers back from Set in order to give him the ability to take back his kingdom, things go wrong and Zaya is killed. Now, Bek must team up with an ornery Horus in order to overthrow Set and and rescue Zaya from the underworld before she's forced to cross over into the afterlife. This movie makes Hercules look like the most historically accurate film of all time. Grab your god spear, erect an obelisk in Andy Wolf's honor, and join us as we tear the brain out of Gods of Egypt!

It's Rocky Balboa vs Ivan Drago in this week's bout, Rocky IV! Sylvester Stallone returns as Rocky Balboa, the heavyweight champion of the world and owner of a sick ass robot. Rocky has grown comfortable in his life. He owns a mansion, has money and robots, and has a happy, healthy kid and a robot. When his good buddy Apollo Creed (not a robot) decides he wants to fight Ivan Drago, the new super human punching machine out of 1980's Movie Russia, Rocky is initially hesitant. After consulting his robot (presumably), he decides to help Apollo out. Well, that ends pretty badly for everyone involved. After burying his best friend and reminiscing about all the fun times they had splashing around in the ocean wearing tank tops, Rocky goes on a 45 minute training montage before facing Drago himself in the heart of Russia, recklessly leaving his child in the care of what has clearly and unfortunately become Paulie's sex robot. Grab your boxing gloves, put on some tunes to montage to, and join us as we break Rocky IV!

The Rock Dwayne Johnson stars as the son of Zeus (?) in this week's episode, 2014's Hercules! This iteration of the classic mythology finds Hercules working as a mercenary, using his legend to drum up business and strike fear into the hearts of his enemies. When a beautiful woman offers him a job defending her father's kingdom against the villainous Reece's Pieces, Hercules and his gang face the monumental challenge of training hundreds of helpless villagers to become fearless warriors. After leading them to victory, he quickly realizes something is wrong. His boss may not be who he seems to be, and Hercules may have been duped into helping the wrong side. Now he must fight to protect the young heir to the throne against the very men that he turned into great warriors. Hercules was a pet project of Dwayne Johnson, and if we've learned anything over the years, it's that pet projects are rarely easy to watch.
