"It seems like a completely unprovoked attack, but it turns out that it was actually a retaliatory strike — someone launched a missile from Asteroid M without Magneto’s knowledge. Note: It was Cortez. Magneto does not realize this, even thought 90% of Cortez’s lines in this episode are about how much he really, really wants to kill all the flatscans."

"Stephen McHattie is also on hand as a Secret Service agent who also turns out to be in with the bad guys in a twist that even Mr. Magoo would see coming a mile away, mainly because the actor just looks evil. Must make going to the bank to deposit your check a bitch—tellers looking at you funny and everything, bank security giving you the eye. Poor bastard."

"What I also enjoyed about [Jeremy Irons]'s character was that none of the other wizards in the wise elder council ever suspect that he's evil. The guy walks in to dark, wicked music, has narrow shifty eyes, and even gives low evil mastermind laughs when he says innocuous and threatening things. "Hmm-hm-hm-hm...haaa ha ha ha!!" He's SO OBVIOUSLY EVIL, and the rest of the wizards are sticking up for his reputation, stunned at the accusation that the velvet cloak-wearing weirdo with heavy eyeliner and shadowed eyes could possibly be wicked and set on world domination. I mean hello, Know Alignment spell anyone? Zone of Truth? Anything? These are high level archmages!"

"The movie is about Dastan (Jake Gyllenhaal) who was a street urchin but the king was convinced of his good nature and made him a prince. Dastan helps to overthrow a kingdom due to misleading information from an unknown informant. The purpose is that someone in the court (Ben Kingsley) with an ulterior motive (Ben Kingsley) for overthrowing the king (Ben Kingsley) wants a mystical dagger inside said city which can turn back time. Dastan must uncover the mystery (Ben Kingsley) of whoever this master manipulator (Ben Kingsley) is...Ben Kingsley.”

"Not to worry, U.N. diplomat and all-around great (Russian) guy Nicolae Carpathia steps up as the voice of reason by going on TV to say that the disappearances are caused by 'radiation buildup from decades of nuclear weapons testing', and somehow goes on from this to become the most trustworthy and respected man in the world, and then basically King of Earth. Everybody immediately accepts all of this even though it makes less goddamn sense than a Parkinson's patient with a Ouija board, but hey — God works in mysterious ways...It goes without saying that Nicolae is the Antichrist, mostly because his name is Nicolae fucking Carpathia, but also thanks to his goofy overdone Russian accent which keeps kicking in and sucking all the dramatic tension out of the room. "

"Hi! I'm Bob EVIL!"

Film Brain, Bad Movie Beatdown on The Condemned

I'm not so sure why everyone thinks allying with this newcomer is such a great idea, though. Calling your faction "The Shadow Runners" and having a big skull for an emblem isn't exactly reassuring. I mean, come on... were any of the Autobots honestly surprised when the Decepticons betrayed them?

Lets see; mad scientist, mustache... nope, I'm definitely the badguy.

"...Okay, no, he's totally a bad guy. Is that a spoiler? I don't think it's a spoiler. Look at that thing. It probably ate a puppy for breakfast right before it burned down an orphanage and talked loudly on a cell phone at a restaurant."

"Are there really a lot of people named Dr. Hell? You could not have a name that shouted "Hey look, I'm evil" louder if you tried."

Shunryu: You monster! I can't believe someone like you could actually get your Cloths!
Deathmask: Please, no morality lesson.
Shunryu: No, seriously, why did they give you a gold cloth ? Your name is Deathmask, you decorate your house with corpses, and your attack is called Hades Wave. Are those who give armors stupid or something?
