In the year 2058 the Earth dying and will be unable to sustain life in a few decades time. A brave family of scientists, the Robinsons, are tasked with traveling into the depths of space to build a hypergate, allowing for the evacuation of the inhabitants of Earth to a more stable planet. Enter the evil Dr. Smith, a greedy man with terroristic intentions who puts into motion a plan that will end the mission before it even starts. Unfortunately for Smith, he's double crossed and is trapped on the ship as it takes off.

When a face from his distant past forces his way into his life, MacLeod is unintentionally given back his immortality and youthful appearance. With his new lease on life, Connor decides to help a young terrorist in her attempts to uncover the truth about a world-protecting machine that MacLeod himself helped design and build in his younger days, all while Michael Ironside tries to keep himself from choking on all the scenery he's chewing.

Time: The Future. Place: Earth(?). Hair: Feathered. The world's water supply is under strict control by the Eco Protectorate, a militaristic organization that polices society and runs prison-like orphanages, where children are groomed for military service. A young boy named Daniel finds a mysterious orb shaped being in a cave below one of these orphanages, and he discovers that his new friend has magical powers. When a fellow orphan kidnaps the orb, Daniel sets out with his roller derby lacrosse hockey team to rescue it. At the same time, the Protectorate discovers the existence of the orb, and decides to find and destroy it for some unknown, but assuredly evil purposes. This film was arguably the low-point of the 80's "Young Children Find An Alien Being And Must Protect/Rescue It From The Government" genre. And no, I didn't forget about Mac and Me. Grab your roller skates, fill up your canteens, and join us as we knock Solarbabies around with a Lacrosskey stick!

Renee Zellweger and Matthew McCan.... MacCona.... Ward from The Paperboy star in the fourth installment of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise! Meant as a reboot/direct sequel to the first film, TNG features all of the same exact scenarios from the original classic, but without any of that pesky innovation or originality getting in the way. Leatherface is now Whinyface, the chainsaw is not doing any massacre-ing, and the Illuminati are now in charge of the family. Also, McConaughey is walking around with Lindsay Lohan's leg from I Know Who Killed Me. Fortunately for the careers of both of its future stars, nobody cared about this film when it was released. Grab your encyclopedia of famous quotes, charge up your remote control batteries, and join us as we fly a crop duster into Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation's face! Alright, alright, alright!

When Alfred's annoying niece Barbara joins the action as the judo chopping, motorcycle racing Batgirl, our heroes must band together to save every last life in Gotham City from an icy doom.
