VIDEO: The Fifth Element (1997)

A force subtly known as the Great Evil threatens the earth, so it's up to 23rd century cab driver Bruce Willis to bring together four element stones and Milla Jovovich (as the titular Fifth Element) to unleash a Divine Light to stop the Evil. Will they succeed, or be defeated by Gary Oldman's awful (southern?) accent?

VIDEO: Delta Farce (2007)

Renegado gets angry at Delta Farce, the disastrously unfunny comedy starring Larry the Cable Guy, Bill Engvall, and DJ Qualls as a group of National Guardsmen who crash land in Mexico and for some reason think they're in Iraq. The movie scores some points for casting Danny Trejo as the bad guy, and the exquisite Marisol Nichols as his woman, but immediately forfeits those points by including Jeff Dunham and his talking jalapeño puppet.

VIDEO: American Pie (1999)

Liam gets all nostalgic for 1999, pre-internet porn, soundtracks featuring Third Eye Blind and/or Blink-182, and American Pie, the blockbuster teen sex comedy where four friends (Jason Biggs, Chris Klein, some other guys) make a pact to get laid before prom, and set their sights on the likes of Tara Reid, Alyson Hannigan, Shannon Elizabeth, and one unsuspecting pastry.

VIDEO: Spice World (1997)

VIDEO: Snakes on a Plane (2006)

Essentially a 100-minute forced meme, the movie stars Samuel L. Jackson as an FBI agent protecting a key witness on a flight to L.A. to testify against the mob. To rub the guy out, the bad guys release dozens of angry snakes on his plane, which is surely the dumbest airplane-related scheme to take out a witness since Airport '79.

VIDEO: Crash (2004)

Ryan reviews Crash, one of the worst movies to ever win the Best Picture Oscar. Brought to you by former Facts of Life writer Paul Haggis, Crash is the movie that dares to say racism is bad, while teaching us all to be better people through laughter, tears, and Sandra Bullock.
