Audacity of a Plot

Today I saw something that I couldn’t stop laughing about. When browsing around I saw the title of a movie and decided just to see what it was. I had no intention of watching it, but at least wanted to know whether to file it in the not gonna watch or never in a million years going to watch category. It was Lockout. I clicked, saw Guy PearceĀ holding a gun, and was about to click back… till I saw the plot description.

Read this. I don’t know how to describe it any further, to mock it any further than what it does to itself. It’s a conglomeration of just… wow. Bad probably doesn’t even begin to describe it. But every time I read it, I laugh. And this movie isn’t a parody staring Bruce Campbell? Seriously? Wow. Please, Bruce Campbell and Jeff Goldbloom, come together to make a sincere parody of this movie. Without further ado, the immortal words of PLOT:

A man wrongly convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage against the U.S. is offered his freedom if he can rescue the president’s daughter from an outer space prison taken over by violent inmates.

Isn’t that just gold?
