Sleeping Dogs (1997)

Nomination Year: 1999
SYNOPSIS:  The sleeping dogs are a group of convicts on their way to a penal colony on Saturn's moon Titan. A collision with a stray asteroid frees C. Thomas Howell, who goes about preparing to take over the ship. Does he succeed? Why was he on the ship in the first place? What are the mysterious contents of "the crate"? Why would you expect me to tell you?

"Alas, Poor Yorick"

He's forced to sit on pressure-sensitive mines, then is killed by his own sneeze. I know you can't keep your eyes open during a sneeze, but where does it say you have to lift your butt?

"Cutting Butter With A Chainsaw"

What's Not To Trust?
"I don't wanna."
"Trust me."
The not-so-bright guy just lets the criminal mastermind strap this "harmless" stuff on him that reads 'This way toward enemy.'
Later, of course, he blows up spectacularly.

Inane Dialogue

Looking on the Bright Side
Our heroes are trapped.
"You mean to tell me we're trapped in here?"
"It has to be going somewhere."
