Ya gotta give it up for Flash Gordon. This corn-fed jock escapes a killer meteor shower by hopping into a rocket ship with a mad scientist and a sexy reporter. They crash land in the middle of an intergalactic royal court. Ming The Merciless -- the BADDEST dude in the known universe -- makes a Middle Ages-style pimp move on the reporter. And what does Flash do? He proceeds to whoop the living hell out of Ming's best shock troopers, with nothing but some giant Faberge eggs and raw gridiron tactics.
