Gorath, the Mysterious Star
Suspicious Star Gorath
Nomination Year: 2005
SYNOPSIS: A rogue star, code-named Gorath, is cutting a swath of destruction through the solar system on a collision course with Earth. Not to fear, though. Japan has a bold plan to save the world. No, it's not what you're thinking. I have no idea what you're thinking, but I'm sure it's not this.
- Most Ludicrous Premise
The Rocket Is Lit, And So's the Producer
Since the rogue star Gorath is on a collision course with Earth, the only way to save the world is to build a giant nuclear rocket at the South Pole and fly the Earth out of the way. If you consider the movie to be Show & Tell, this is the Show.
- Crummiest Ending
Can't We All Just Get Along?
The success of the South Pole Project has made the world safe for inane philosophizing.
