Mock the Movie: Xtreme Xercise Edition

Because we’re apparently on a bad tech movie kick, this Wednesday, May 22, we’ll be mocking Expect No Mercy. We don’t expect we’ll be giving this film any. There will be Tae Bo jokes.

This movie is freely available on YouTube.

Then…oh, then comes June 5. And on June 5 comes Atlas Shrugged, Part the First. Look upon John Galt, ye compassionate, and giggle. Or fall asleep.

Just try not to mock it. This one is, of course, not freely available, but it is on Netflix and Amazon Instant.

Two weeks after that, we take a different view of what it means to free yourself from pesky government intervention with Delta Force 2: The Colombian Connection, a movie that appears to be so incoherent that even it’s IMDb description can’t be followed.

This movie is also freely available on YouTube.

“These all sound awful!” I hear you cry. Yes. Yes, they do. “These must be mocked mercilessly”, you say. Well, then you’re in the right company. The instructions for playing along:

  1. Start following @MockTM on Twitter.
  2. Start watching the movie on the appropriate Wednesday at 9 p.m. EDT.
  3. Once you’ve got the movie going, tweet your snarky comments to @MockTM.  Directing our tweets to @MockTM will keep our followers from being overwhelmed with our snark!
  4. Set up a search for @MockTM on Twitter for the duration so you can follow along with everyone else sharing your pain.

If you have suggestions for other movies that can and should be mocked, send them to @MockTM. Preference will be given to movies that are free or stream on the major media delivery services. Watch the feed, and we’ll set up the calendar for more terrible, mockable movies.
