Deus Ex Machina

Minutemen Ex Machina
"I told these Minutemen that you were a British spy." And of course they implicitly believed and trusted me.

"Cutting Butter With A Chainsaw"

Yes, They Have Inferior Weaponry, But There's a Lot of It
Slimy bad-guy corporate-type vs. Entire Revolutionary Army. Yes, I mean the entire Revolutionary Army.


Me and My Underlit, Slightly Pastier Future Self
OK, I realize that when you need to show Our Hero and Our Hero's Past Self in the same shot, you need to use split-screen photography. But please try to make sure the lighting is the same in both shots.

Worst Special Effect

A Blue Print for Time Travel
Time travel seems to involve superimposing a giant blue fingerprint over yourself.

Worst Acting

Peter J. Harrington, Pink Boy
Peter J. Harrington is Pink Boy with Bad Hair! See Peter J. Harrington try to show a non-existent time travel device to his boss! See Peter J. Harrington sputter in confusion! See Peter J. Harrington get fired! See Peter J. Harrington never work in this town again!
