Re: Dumbest Scene Ever in a Movie
Battlefield Earth - where do I begin?
I think my favorite part is when the Man-Animals (or Rat Brains according to Travolta's character Terl) find an abandoned underground Air Force Base built into the side of a mountain. The base is 1000 years old, and yet the lights turn on with a flick of the switch. Then, they find a large collection of Harrier Jets fueled up and ready to go after 1000 years of neglect, and they learn to fly the Jets by turning on an overhead projector that happens to have instructions sitting on it. So, of course they outfly the Aliens with superior technology. Oh, and by the way, the Man-Animals, lead by the inimitable Barry Pepper, were fighting each other with sticks a week earlier. Now I'm not an expert on the Air Force procedures, but I'm going to guess that the Harrier with its unique capabilities is a VERY difficult plane to fly for trained experts, let alone people one step away from cave men.
I love that movie....
